Has an infectious illness or death rocked your home or business? Are you in need of crime scene cleanup services? PuroClean of Meadow Woods provides a full range of biohazard removal services, including the use of PuroClean RapidDefense™ for an Influenza or Norovirus outbreak. Biohazard removal requires special attention to everyone’s safety. The team at PuroClean of Meadow Woods will carefully contain the area, remove any materials that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your Orlando, FL area property back to pre-loss condition, with empathy and care.

PuroClean RapidDefense™

Our PuroClean RapidDefense Program™ is an Environmental Protection Agency-registered, safe product that provides up to three months of protection to prevent contamination and minimize the risk of pathogens spreading. It is the best way to sanitize public spaces and helps stop the spread of pathogen-based illnesses, such as Influenza and MRSA.

Safety as a Priority

It is critical to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear specialized personal protective equipment to keep themselves safe. They also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your family or employees safe as well.

Thorough Cleanup & Decontamination

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

Compassionate Service

We at PuroClean of Meadow Woods know that this may be a challenging time for your workplace or family. As we work to sanitize your home or business, we pledge to treat your space and belongings with the utmost respect and care.

In most cases, dealing with biohazard materials means dealing with chemical spills, blood, human or animal remains. A traumatic event that ended in injury or death are circumstances that call for biohazard restoration. The actual biohazard cleanup involves cleaning, applying EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing areas where traumatic events have taken place.

Biohazard Cleanup Services Include

  • 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 employ biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup company can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence pertaining to the crime.

The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Materials (BOPIM) Standard

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put out a standard in 1991 to protect all workers from possible 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.

The BOPIM standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million people in the healthcare industry and related occupations, that also includes biohazard remediation companies. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.

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

  • 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 Scenarios

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

Every single time that PuroClean professionals handle materials that are possibly hazardous, they are taking a chance of significant risk to their safety. This is the reason that following precise safety methods and specific 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 remediation is finished.

Does Biohazard Cleanup Require Certification?

It is not mandatory to obtain a certification to become a biohazard technician. Although OSHA does require biohazard technicians to properly wear PPE when working with bloodborne pathogens. Additionally, you will want to check your local city, state, and federal regulators for certain 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 includes companies providing remediation services linked to trauma and crime scene cleanup.

PPE is the last line of defense and aids to ensure the safety of workers. PPE equipment stops hazardous material from coming into contact with the body through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any additional area. Although PPE differs from project to project, it should always include full-face protection, cut resistant and nitrile gloves, 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 a significant part in the training. The technician’s training greatly reduces the risk of potential lawsuits or injuries from accidents.

PuroClean Biohazard Cleanup Process

  • Upon mobilization, the remediation team will inspect and find all affected areas, conduct a health and safety assessment, and make a determination as to the scope of the biohazard project. When the crew has a plan in place, remediation begins immediately.
  • PuroClean will first take precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of any individuals near the affected areas.
  • Technicians then remove and dispose of all potentially infectious items from the site.
  • OSHA regulations will explain how hazardous medical waste is handled. As an example, spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other body fluids are carefully removed and transported to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Per industry guidelines and state laws, technicians have to dispose of porous materials like fabric and carpeting that can’t be adequately cleaned.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectants are to be used on non-porous items that can be saved. If the items prove to be non-restorable, our technicians will remove and discard such items.
  • After the cleaning process, technicians will deodorize the affected locations and assure they are returned to pre-contamination conditions and appearance. One procedure that proves areas are totally cleansed and ready for occupancy is to have a licensed industrial Hygienist conduct clearance testing.
  • Odors are normally controlled by the getting rid of uncleanable contaminated materials and cleaning with hospital-grade cleaning products. However, difficult situations may require further methods of deodorization to achieve the desired goal.

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 any surface can be re-contaminated after 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.
