Our Biohazard Removal Process in Long Beach, CA

  • Our process begins with a plan. We thoroughly assess the contamination and create a safe and effective biohazard remediation plan. 
  • All potentially infectious materials are carefully removed from the site. Hazardous medical waste is handled in compliance with OSHA regulations, appropriately processed, and sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator. 
  • Porous materials such as carpet and bedding are removed following industry standards and government regulations. All other non-hazardous affected materials are either removed or professionally decontaminated and sanitized. 
  • Remaining materials such as drywall and flooring may be sealed, usually for cosmetic reasons, to cover any stains from the incident.

Planning and Organization

To begin, we provide a full assessment of the incident and affected area(s). We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the action plan.

Medical Biohazard Waste Removal

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.

Thorough Cleanup and Decontamination

All affected porous material will be removed per industry standards and state regulations. All other infectious material will be safely discarded 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.

Deodorization

Typically, odors dissipate once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to eliminate the odor.
