Thorough Cleanup & Decontamination

All affected material will either be removed and discarded or retained and disinfected depending on industry standards and state regulations.

Biohazard cleanup involves cleaning, application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing property where a traumatic event such as an accident, injury, or death has occurred. Thus, dealing with biohazards often means dealing with blood, human or animal remains, chemical spills, and more.

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

Keep in mind that state employees aren’t required to clean crime locations. When the authorities and investigators are finished gathering their evidence, the burden falls to the owner of the property to arrange biohazard cleaning professionals. Only after police have collected pertinent evidence and have released the scene can biohazard cleanup professionals start their work.

The Blood Or Other Potentially Infectious Materials Standard

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard in 1991 to help guard all workers from the dangers of blood or other potentially infectious materials (BOPIM). Hepatitis B virus, HIV, the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others are examples of Infectious pathogens.

Approximately 5.6 million workers are helped by BOPIM in healthcare jobs and related occupations, and includes biohazard remediation companies also. The BOPIM standard also includes the biohazard cleaning and removal industry.

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

  • 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

Common Biohazard Situations

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

Every single time that PuroClean technicians handle materials that are potentially hazardous, they are taking a chance of serious risk to their safety. This is the reason that following precise safety methods and exact training procedures are so important. Following these procedures is not only significant to the technician’s safety, but for the safety of tenants who will later reside and occupy the affected space once the biohazard cleanup and restoration is finished.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

To work as a biohazard technician, a certificate is not required. However, biohazard technicians are obligated to wear correct PPE when working in areas with bloodborne pathogens. The state of Georgia recently passed a law which affects any company providing restoration services related to trauma and crime scene cleaning and restoration. Therefore, you need to review and follow local city, state, and federal requirements that may call for special licensing or have certain laws in place for licensing requirements, background checks, fingerprinting or more factors that may apply to biohazard cleanup services.

Personal Protective Equipment or PPE is the final line of defense that aids in keeping workers safe. PPE guards against any hazardous materials from touching workers, through skin, eyes, nose, mouth, or any other exposure. Exact PPE can differ depending on the particular work, however, it should always consist of properly designated waterproof coveralls, nitrile gloves which are also cut resistant, full-face guard, and a respirator.

Reputable and trustworthy remediation firms train their workers to work in the biohazard restoration industry. This training includes implementing OSHA’s directions for handling biohazardous materials. This training protects all parties involved: technicians, bystanders, and future tenants. Furthermore, the risk of accidents and potential lawsuits goes down greatly.

The PuroClean Process of Biohazard Cleanup

  • First, the remediation crew identifies the affected areas, completes a health and safety evaluation, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard cleanup. Once a plan is devised, remediation work begins as quickly as possible.
  • Technicians then take precautions to maintain their safety and the safety of others near the cleanup site.
  • All potentially infectious materials are eradicated from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, like spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily waste, is handled following OSHA regulations and given to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous items like fabric and carpeting that can’t be sufficiently cleaned are disposed of following industry standards and state regulations.
  • Non-porous materials are either washed with hospital-grade disinfectants if they are salvageable, or removed and discarded if non-restorable.
  • After cleaning is completed, technicians deodorize the affected locations, and will ensure all affected areas are returned to pre-loss conditions in appearance and cleanliness. One way to guarantee that the areas have 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 usually enough to control odors, and in some difficult situations, other means of deodorization are implemented to accomplish the desired goal.
