Innovative

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.

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

Included Within The Biohazard Cleanup Services

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

Bear in mind that the state is not responsible for restoring a crime scene. Once police investigators gather evidence from the scene, it is up to the property owner to seek biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.

BOPIM Standard

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

The standard helps protect nearly 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related jobs, which also includes biohazard remediation companies. Biohazard remediation is within the scope of the BOPIM standard.

The BOPIM standard also has several requirements, as follows:

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

More Common Biohazard Scenarios

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

PuroClean specialists face significant dangers each and every time they handle items that are potentially hazardous. For this reason, the implementation of proper training and safety precautions are critically important. The training and safety methods are important for both the technicians employed on the project as well as the tenants who will be occupying the area once the biohazard work is complete.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

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

To protect the safety of our technicians, PPE is used as the last line 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 depending on the job, but needs to always consist of cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face protection, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable remediation companies offer biohazard restoration training for individuals. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety processes for handling biohazard waste is a significant part in the training. The technician’s training greatly lessens the risk of potential lawsuits or injuries from accidents.

Our Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • First, the remediation crew will identify the affected areas, conducts a health and safety evaluation, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard remediation. Once a plan is devised, remediation will take place as quickly as possible.
  • Biohazard specialists then take precautions to maintain their safety and that of other individuals near the cleanup site.
  • All possible infectious materials are eradicated from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily waste, is handled following OSHA regulations and transferred to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous items like fabric and carpeting that can’t be sufficiently cleaned are disposed of following industry guidelines and state regulations.
  • Non-porous items are either cleaned using hospital-grade disinfectants if they are salvageable, or taken away and disposed of if non-restorable.
  • After cleanup 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 area has 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 often enough to dissipate odors, and in some tougher situations, other procedures of deodorization are implemented to accomplish the desired goal.

Providing Biohazard Cleanup Services with Empathy

No matter if you’re the customer, occupant or owner of the project location, PuroClean realizes and understands the magnitude of pain you’re going through. Our restoration teams strive to be exceptionally empathetic and understanding so as not to enhance the sense of loss that may be felt. Biohazard restoration particularly can be extra traumatic. Therefore, all PuroClean employees empathize with all individuals, showing the utmost compassion and respect throughout the restoration process.

The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program

PuroClean has implemented a cleaning program that we feel is the best way to clean. The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program consists mainly of the application of EPA certified hospital-grade disinfectants in public areas. The 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Norovirus, Influenza and other pathogen-based illnesses are the goal of our RapidDefense™ Program, helping to stop the spreading of such illnesses. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, safe products are used for this method for up to 90 days of protection against pathogens. Reach out to PuroClean to stop an outbreak and help create a safe and clean atmosphere.

Cleaning with the use of hospital grade cleaners of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the suggested actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since all surfaces and objects can be re-contaminated following cleaning, and because COVID-19 is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services cannot be guaranteed to prevent 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.
