Have you had a sewer backup? Are you in need of crime scene cleanup services? Has an infectious illness or death rocked your home or business? PuroClean of Des Plaines provides a full range of biohazard removal services, including the use of PuroClean RapidDefense™ for an Influenza or Norovirus outbreak. It is important that biohazard removal is completed with special attention to the safety of everyone involved. The team at PuroClean of Des Plaines will carefully contain the area, remove any materials that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your Des Plaines, IL area property back to pre-loss condition, with empathy and care.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of the incident and the area(s) affected. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the plan of action.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special personal protective equipment to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.
Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled following OSHA regulations. It’s then sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
All affected porous material will be removed in accordance with industry standards and state regulations. All other infectious material will be safely discarded as well. For non-porous surfaces, we will dry the affected area before applying a disinfectant. After allowing this to soak, we scrub, repeating the process to disinfect the space.
Typically, once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to ensure the odor is gone.
Professionals have the equipment and training to safely clean up biohazards without further contamination. This will reduce the likelihood of illness spreading to others at the home or office. Call PuroClean of Des Plaines at (224) 319-0100 and rest assured that your property is in good hands.
Biohazards are any biological contaminants that have the risk of carrying disease, such as those found in sewage, mold, or any viral or bacterial contamination such as MRSA. Biohazards also include toxins found in decaying organisms, as well as bodily fluids.
