Are you dealing with a sewer back-up or in need of crime scene cleanup services? Has an infectious illness, like Norovirus or Coronavirus swept through your home or business? PuroClean of Reston delivers a full range of biohazard cleanup services, including the use of the PuroClean RapidDefense™ for a bacterial or viral outbreak. Safety is critical to proper biohazard cleanup. The team at PuroClean of Reston will carefully contain the area, remove any materials that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If any odors remain, our trained technicians will deodorize the area, returning your property to pre-loss condition.
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 critical to perform biohazard cleanup with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear specialized 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 per industry standards and state regulations. We will safely discard all other infectious material 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.
RapidDefense™ is designed to clean up and protect after MRSA, Influenza, or Norovirus contamination.
Professionals have the equipment and training to clean up biohazards without further contamination safely. This will reduce the likelihood of illness spreading to others at the home or office. Call PuroClean of Reston at (571) 342-6700 and rest assured that your property is in good hands.
