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.

Traumatic events or accidents that may have resulted in injury or death, require certified biohazard restoration professionals. Our biohazard cleaning consists of the thorough cleaning and application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants and then thoroughly deodorizing the area. Chemical spills, blood, and human or animal remains are examples of biohazard materials that call for professional cleaning.

Our Biohazard Hazmat Clean Up Services:

Bear in mind that the state is not responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. Once police investigators collect evidence from the scene, it is the responsibility of the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning services. A professional hazmat clean up team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered all evidence related to the crime.

BOPIM Standard

In 1991, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put forth a standard to protect workers from the risk 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.

Nearly 5.6 million workers are helped by this standard in healthcare jobs and related occupations, and includes biohazard restoration companies also. The BOPIM standard also covers the biohazard cleaning and restoration industry.

Additionally, the BOPIM standard includes several requirements, as follows:

  • Record keeping
  • Mandatory training
  • Specific required vaccinations
  • 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)

Common Biohazard Situations

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

Each and every time that PuroClean professionals handle materials that are possibly hazardous, they are taking a chance of serious risk to their safety. This is why following correct safety methods and exact training procedures are imperative. Following these procedures is not only significant to the technician’s safety, but for the safety of the people who will later reside and occupy the affected space once the biohazard cleanup and remediation is finished.

Does Biohazard Hazmat Clean Up Require Certification?

It is not particularly necessary to obtain a certification to become a biohazard technician. Although OSHA does require biohazard technicians to properly wear PPE when handling bloodborne pathogens. Furthermore, you will want to check your local city, state, and federal regulators for any licensing requirements, laws, background checks, fingerprinting, or any other procedures that may be required to perform remediation work. For example, the state of Georgia passed a law that affects companies providing restoration services related to trauma and crime scene 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 materials, through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other body parts. PPE requirements change with each project, but should always include cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face guard, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

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

PuroClean Biohazard Hazmat Clean up Process

  • Upon mobilization, the remediation team will inspect and find all affected locations, conduct a health and safety assessment, and make a determination as to the scope of the hazmat clean up. When the technicians have a plan put together, remediation begins immediately.
  • PuroClean will first take measures to ensure their safety and the safety of others near the affected areas.
  • Technicians then gather and dispose of all potentially infectious items from the project.
  • OSHA regulations will indicate how hazardous medical waste is handled. For example, spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other body fluids are carefully removed and taken to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per industry guidelines and state regulations, technicians have to get rid of porous materials such as fabric and carpeting that can’t be sufficiently cleaned.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectants are to be used on non-porous items that can be salvaged. If the items end up being non-restorable, our specialists will remove and discard such items.
  • After the cleaning procedure, technicians will deodorize the affected locations and assure they are returned to pre-contamination cleanliness and appearance. One method that ensures areas are fully cleansed and ready for occupancy is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist perform clearance testing.
  • Odors are normally controlled by the removal of uncleanable contaminated materials and cleaning with hospital-grade disinfectants. However, difficult situations could require further procedures of deodorization to achieve success.

The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program

PuroClean has adopted a hazmat clean up method that we feel is the most adequate way to clean. The PuroClean RapidDefense™ Program consists mainly of the application of EPA certified hospital-grade disinfectants in high traffic areas. The 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Norovirus, Influenza and many more pathogen-based germs are the goal of our RapidDefense™ Program, helping to stop the spreading of such contaminants. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, safe solutions are used for this method for up to three months of protection against pathogens. Contact PuroClean to prevent 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 stop the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since all surfaces and objects can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus 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 for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
