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

In most cases, dealing with biohazard materials means dealing with chemical spills, blood, human or animal remains. A traumatic event that resulted in injury or death are circumstances that require biohazard restoration. The actual biohazard cleanup consists of cleaning, applying EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing areas where traumatic events have taken place.

Our Biohazard Cleaning Services:

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

Bear in mind that state investigators aren’t required to clear crime locations. When Police and investigators have completed gathering their evidence, the responsibility falls to the owner of the property to arrange biohazard cleaning professionals. Only after police have collected all evidence and have re-opened the scene will biohazard cleanup technicians start their work.

The Blood Or Other Potentially Infectious Materials Standard

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

The BOPIM standard helps protect nearly 5.6 million people in the healthcare industry and related occupations, that also includes biohazard remediation employees. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.

The BOPIM standard also consists of various requirements, such as:

  • 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

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

Every time abatement specialists handle potentially hazardous items, they are doing so at considerable risk. Thus, following specific proper training and safety procedures are crucial. This is necessary not only for their own personal safety but also for the people who will reside in the property after the biohazard restoration is complete.

Is Certification Required to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

To work as a biohazard specialist, a certificate is not required. However, biohazard technicians are strongly required to wear correct PPE when working around bloodborne pathogens. The state of Georgia recently put into law which affects any business providing cleanup services related to trauma and crime scene cleanup and restoration. Therefore, you should refer to local city, state, and federal regulations that could call for special licensing or have certain rules and regulations in place for licensing requirements, background checks, fingerprinting or more factors that may apply to biohazard cleanup services.

To help ensure the safety of our employees, PPE is used as the final barrier of defense. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) protects the body from coming into contact with hazardous items, via the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other area. PPE specific items change with each project, but should always consist of cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face guard, appropriately designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable remediation companies provide biohazard restoration training for employees. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods for handling biohazard waste is included in the training. The technician’s training greatly reduces the risk of potential lawsuits or injuries from accidents.

PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Procedures

  • The first task of the remediation crew is to inspect and identify all areas needing biohazard cleanup, perform a health and safety assessment, and identify the scope of the biohazard cleanup. When the technicians have a plan mapped out, restoration will start immediately
  • All technicians will take precautions to ensure their safety and that of anyone close to the biohazard affected areas.
  • The PuroClean technicians will then eradicate and dispose of all possibly infectious materials from the project.
  • OSHA regulations dictate exactly how hazardous medical waste should be handled. For example: spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and any additional bodily fluids are carefully handled and relocated to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per state regulations and industry guidelines, technicians are required to dispose of porous materials like fabric and carpeting that cannot be properly cleaned.
  • Non-porous items that can be salvaged will be cleaned with hospital grade disinfectants. If these items are non-restorable, our technicians will remove and dispose of these items.
  • Following the cleaning procedures, technicians deodorize all affected areas and return these places to pre-contamination shape and appearance. One procedure that proves areas are completely cleaned and ready again for habitation is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors can normally be managed by the eradication of unsalvageable contaminated materials and by cleaning items with hospital-grade disinfectants. However, difficult situations may call for further procedures of deodorization to achieve success.

Providing Biohazard Cleanup Services with Empathy

Whether you’re the customer, occupant or owner of the project location, PuroClean completely grasps the magnitude of suffering you’re going through.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade cleaners of high traffic touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to aid in stopping the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services are not guaranteed to thwart 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.
