Biohazard cleanup involves cleaning, application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing property where a traumatic event such as an accident, injury, or death has taken place. Thus, projects with biohazards often means dealing with blood, human or animal remains, chemical spills, and more.

Included Within The Biohazard Cleanup Services

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

It is important to remember that the state officials are not obligated to clean up a crime scene. When police investigators are finished collecting evidence from the area, the duty of cleaning the area shifts to the property owner to seek biohazard cleaning services. Professional cleanup technicians can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.

The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard to protect working individuals from the potential dangers of blood or other possibly infectious materials (BOPIM). Infectious pathogens for example are the Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others.

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 coverage of the BOPIM standard.

Also, the BOPIM standard has 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

More Common Biohazard Scenarios

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

Each time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials, they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following correct proper training and safety procedures are very important. This is necessary not only for their own individual safety but also for the individuals who will live or work in the property after the biohazard cleanup is complete.

Is Certification Needed to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

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

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

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

PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Procedures

  • First, the remediation crew identifies the affected areas, completes a health and safety assessment, and determines the scope of the biohazard cleanup. Once a plan is devised, remediation will take place as quickly as possible.
  • Biohazard specialists then take steps to maintain their safety and the safety of others near the cleanup site.
  • All potentially infectious materials are eradicated from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, like spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled following OSHA regulations and sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous materials like fabric and carpeting that can’t be sufficiently cleaned are removed following industry guidelines and state regulations.
  • Non-porous items are either cleaned using hospital-grade disinfectants if the items appear to be salvageable, or removed and disposed of if non-restorable.
  • After cleaning is completed, technicians deodorize the affected areas, and will ensure all affected areas are returned to pre-loss conditions in appearance and cleanliness. One way to ensure that the areas have been cleaned and ready for occupants is to have clearance tests 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 tougher situations, other procedures of deodorization are implemented to accomplish the desired air cleanliness.

No matter if you’re the customer, occupant or owner of the project location, PuroClean completely grasps the magnitude of suffering you’re going through.

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.
