PuroClean restoration professionals are licensed, insured, and certified to remediate biohazard environments safely and in accordance with all applicable laws and standards. We understand that some events may be sensitive and must be handled with compassion and discretion. We bring a sense of calm back to those impacted, whether the loss is in a home, commercial property or business office.
Traumatic events or accidents that may have resulted in injury or death, need the services of certified biohazard cleanup professionals. Our biohazard cleaning consists of the extreme cleansing and application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants and then completely deodorizing the area. Chemical spills, blood, and human or animal remains are types of biohazard materials that call for professional remediation.
Bear in mind that the state is not responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. After police investigators gather evidence from the scene, it is the responsibility of the property owner to seek biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) posted a standard in 1991 to help guard all workers from possible dangers of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many more are examples of Infectious pathogens.
Approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related positions are helped by this standard. The biohazard restoration and cleaning Industry is also covered under the BOPIM standard.
Additionally, the BOPIM standard includes several requirements, including:
Common Biohazard Situations
PuroClean technicians face significant dangers each and every time they handle items that are potentially hazardous. For this reason, the implementation of proper training and safety precautions are critically important. The training and safety methods are important for both the technicians working on the project as well as the tenants who will be occupying the space once the biohazard remediation is complete.
Biohazard technicians are not required to procure a certificate for their employment. However, biohazard technicians are required, by OSHA, to wear appropriate PPE while working with bloodborne pathogens. Furthermore, for workers to perform biohazard restoration, local, city, state and federal regulations may call for licensing requirements. Regulations may be in place that call for the technicians to be subjected to background checks, fingerprinting, or further actions. Georgia’s requirements are a prime example. The state passed legislation that affects businesses who provide trauma and crime scene restoration.
PPE is the final line of defense and aids to ensure the safety of workers. PPE equipment stops hazardous material from reaching the body through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other area. Although PPE varies from job to job, it should always have full-face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.
Reputable restoration companies offer biohazard restoration training for workers. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods for handling biohazard waste is a significant part in the coursework. The technician’s training greatly lessens the risk of potential lawsuits and injuries from accidents.

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 any surface can be re-contaminated following cleaning, and because COVID-19 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.
