Innovative

PuroClean RapidDefense™ is the best way to sanitize public areas. Our system helps stop the spread of pathogen-based illnesses, such as Influenza and Norovirus.

Biohazard cleanup often means working to clean up areas where a traumatic event has happened, and requires certified cleanup of chemical spills, blood, or human and animal remains. Cleaning property during a biohazard cleaning involves the application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants and full deodorization of the affected space.

Our Biohazard Cleaning Services:

  • Sewage Cleanup and Sanitation
  • Virus Decontamination and Protection
  • Blood and Bodily Fluid Remediation
  • Hoarding Cleanup
  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Deodorization and Odor Control

Once police and investigators finish gathering all the evidence from a crime scene, they are not responsible for any of the actual sanitizing of the scene. When police release the scene, the responsibility is with the owner of the premises to employ biohazard cleaning services. The biohazard cleaning technicians can only start doing their work after authorities have officially released the scene.

BOPIM Standard

The (BOPIM) standard stands for “blood or other potentially infectious materials”. Infectious pathogens can range from anything from Hepatitis B, HIV, and even the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and much more. In 1991, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) set forth a standard to protect all employees from dangers due to blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM).

An estimated 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related positions are helped by this standard. The biohazard restoration and cleaning field is also covered under the BOPIM standard.

Additionally, the BOPIM standard includes several prerequisites, as follows:

  • Record keeping
  • Mandatory training
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • Proper handling, transport and disposal of hazardous medical waste materials
  • Using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Using work practice controls
  • Conduct a Health and Safety Assessment (OSHA requirement)

Common Biohazard Situations

  • Crime or homicide scenes
  • Suicide or death
  • Blood and bodily fluid
  • Hoarding scenes
  • Animal waste or remains
  • Chemical hazards
  • Coronavirus contamination

Every single time that technicians need to work with or around potentially hazardous materials, it is performed at a significant risk. Therefore, adhering to safety rules and proper training is necessary. The significance of these procedures are both for the employees and people who will later occupy the previously biohazard affected space. The technicians and residents depend on these safety guidelines. The safety of both technicians and tenants from biohazard dangers is of utmost importance during and after the project.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

Biohazard workers are not required to obtain a special certificate to do their work. They are subject to OSHA requirements, however, to don the proper PPE when working with or around bloodborne pathogens. We also suggest you follow the local city, state, and federal regulations for exact licensing obligations, laws, background checks, fingerprinting or additional requirements to work in biohazard restoration. For example, the state of Georgia voted in a new law that is connected to any company working in restoration services for crime scene and trauma cleanup.

PPE protects the safety of technicians and is the last line of protection. This equipment protects the skin, eyes, mouth, nose and other areas from coming into contact to hazardous material. The extent of PPE used on each job may differ on different job sites. However, PPE should always consist of full face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly assigned waterproof coveralls as well as a respirator.

Additionally, well established restoration companies offer biohazard cleanup training for new technicians. The training includes learning on-the-job safety methods as set by OSHA, for handling biohazardous materials. Learning these guidelines reduce dangers of accidents, or even potential lawsuits.

Our Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • Upon arrival, the remediation crew will inspect and identify all affected locations, conduct a health and safety inspection, and make a decision as to the scope of the biohazard cleanup. When the technicians have a plan in place, remediation begins immediately.
  • Technicians will first take precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of any individuals near the affected areas.
  • Technicians then remove and dispose of all potentially infectious items from the project.
  • OSHA regulations will describe how hazardous medical waste is handled. For example, spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids are carefully handled and taken to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per industry standards and state regulations, technicians have to dispose of porous materials like fabric and carpeting that can’t be adequately cleaned.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectants are to be used on non-porous items that can be salvaged. If the items end up being non-restorable, our specialists will remove and dispose of such items.
  • Following the cleaning process, technicians will deodorize all affected locations and assure they are returned to pre-contamination cleanliness and appearance. One method that proves areas are completely cleansed and ready for occupancy is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors are normally controlled by the getting rid of uncleanable contaminated items and cleaning with hospital-grade cleaning products. However, difficult situations may require further methods of deodorization to achieve the desired goal.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade disinfectants of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help stop the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since all surfaces and objects can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services cannot be guaranteed to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
