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

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

Our Biohazard Cleaning Services:

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

It is useful to remember that the state officials are not required to clean up a crime scene. When police officials are finished collecting evidence from the scene, the duty of cleaning the area shifts to the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning services. Professional cleanup teams can arrive onsite only when the police have gathered all evidence related to the crime.

BOPIM Standard

The (BOPIM) standard means “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 many others. 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).

The BOPIM standard helps protect about 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation businesses. Biohazard remediation falls within the bounds of the BOPIM standard.

Also, the BOPIM standard consists of several requirements, including:

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

Common Biohazard Scenarios

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

Every occurrence that technicians need to work with or around potentially hazardous materials, it is quite a significant risk. Because of this, adhering to safety rules and the correct training is necessary. The significance of these guidelines are both for the workers 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 residents from biohazard dangers is of utmost importance during and after the project.

Is Certification Required to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

Biohazard specialists are not obligated to obtain a specific certificate to go to work. They are subject to OSHA requirements, however, to wear the proper PPE when working with or close to bloodborne pathogens. We also recommend you follow the local city, state, and federal regulations for exact licensing obligations, laws, background checks, fingerprinting or additional requirements to do biohazard restoration. For example, the state of Georgia put out a new law that is connected to any company performing restoration services for crime scene and trauma restoration.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is the last line of defense that aids in keeping workers safe. PPE prevents any hazardous materials from touching workers, through skin, eyes, nose, mouth, or any other contact. Particular PPE can differ depending on the particular work, however, it should always include properly designated waterproof coveralls, nitrile gloves that are also cut resistant, full-face protection, and a respirator.

Reputable and trustworthy remediation businesses train their technicians to work in the biohazard restoration industry. This training includes implementing OSHA’s directions for handling biohazardous waste. This training protects everyone involved: technicians, bystanders, and future tenants. Furthermore, the risk of accidents and potential lawsuits is limited greatly.

Our Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • First, the cleanup crew identifies the affected areas, completes a health and safety evaluation, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard remediation. Once a plan is devised, remediation work begins as quickly as possible.
  • The crews then take steps to maintain their safety and the safety of others near the cleanup site.
  • All potentially infectious materials are removed from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, like spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily waste, is handled following OSHA regulations and sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous items like fabric and carpeting that can’t be sufficiently cleaned are removed following industry guidelines and state regulations.
  • Non-porous materials are either washed with hospital-grade disinfectants if they are salvageable, or removed and discarded if non-restorable.
  • After cleanup is completed, technicians deodorize the affected areas, and will ensure all affected areas are returned to their previous state in appearance and cleanliness. One way to ensure that the areas have been cleaned and ready for occupants is to have clearance testing performed by a licensed Industrial Hygienist.
  • Removal of uncleanable contaminated materials, cleaning, and use of hospital-grade disinfectants are usually enough to control odors, and in some difficult situations, other procedures of deodorization are implemented to accomplish the desired air cleanliness.

Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services are not guaranteed to stop 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.
