Medical 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 & Decontamination

All affected porous material will be removed in accordance with 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, once the biohazard is cleaned and the area sanitized, odors dissipate. However, our crew will determine whether further deodorization is necessary. If so, we use hydroxyls or ozone to ensure the odor is gone.
