PuroClean of Nashville is now under NEW OWNERSHIP & MANAGEMENT.
We are now PuroClean of Nashville.
PuroClean restoration professionals are licensed, insured, and certified to remediate biohazard environments safely and in accordance with all applicable laws and standards. We understand that some events may be sensitive and must be handled with compassion and discretion. We bring a sense of calm back to those impacted, whether the loss is in a home, commercial property or business office.
Biohazard restoration involves cleaning, application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing areas where a traumatic event like an accident, injury, or death has taken place. Thus, projects with biohazards often means dealing with blood, human or animal remains, chemical spills, and more.
It is important to remember that the state officials are not obligated to clean up a crime scene. When police officials are finished gathering evidence from the scene, the responsibility of cleaning the property shifts to the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning professionals. Professional cleanup teams can arrive onsite only when the police have gathered enough evidence pertaining to the crime.
The (BOPIM) standard means “blood or other potentially infectious materials”. Infectious pathogens can be anything from Hepatitis B, HIV, and even the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and many others. In 1991, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) set forth a standard to protect all employees from risks due to blood or other possible infectious materials (BOPIM).
This standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related jobs, which also includes biohazard remediation businesses. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.
The BOPIM standard also has a few requirements, as follows:
Common Biohazard Scenarios
Each and every 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 correct safety methods and exact training procedures are necessary. 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.
Biohazard specialists are not required to get a certificate for their employment. However, biohazard technicians are obligated, by OSHA, to wear proper PPE while working with bloodborne pathogens. Furthermore, for workers to perform biohazard remediation, local, city, state and federal laws may call for licensing requirements. Laws may be in place that call for the technicians to submit to background checks, fingerprinting, or further actions. Georgia’s requirements are a good example. The state passed laws that affect companies who provide trauma and crime scene cleanup.
PPE ensures the safety of workers and happens to be the last line of defense. This equipment guards the skin, eyes, mouth, nose and other body parts from coming into contact to hazardous material. The extent of PPE used on each project may vary on different job sites. However, PPE should always consist of full face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, properly assigned waterproof coveralls as well as a respirator.
Furthermore, reputable restoration companies offer biohazard remediation classes for workers. That includes learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety procedures when working with biohazardous waste. Doing this reduces the risk of accidents and probable lawsuits.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade cleaners of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help stop the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface 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 (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information regarding coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
They offer great service.
