Have you had a sewer backup in your Plantation-area property? Are you in need of crime scene cleanup services? Has an infectious illness, like Norovirus or Coronavirus torn through your home or business? PuroClean of Plantation provides a full range of biohazard cleanup services, including the use of PuroClean RapidDefense™ for a viral or bacterial outbreak. Biohazard removal requires special attention to the safety of everyone involved. The team at PuroClean of Plantation will carefully contain the area, remove any materials that are not salvageable, and then sanitize those that remain. If there are any persistent odors, our compassionate, trained technicians will work to deodorize the area and return your Plantation-area property to its pre-loss condition.
To begin, we provide a full assessment of the incident and the area(s) affected. We will determine the level of containment needed and inform you of the plan of action.
It is key to perform biohazard removal with special attention to safety and industry and OSHA standards. Our trained technicians wear special 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.
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.
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.
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.
Commonly known as “crime and trauma scene cleaning,” forensic restoration is defined as the comprehensive cleaning and remediation of buildings and structures contaminated or suspected to be contaminated from biological materials. Site and risk assessments need to be completed that starts with the initial contact, acquiring critical incident data: the who, what, when, where and how, which begins to lay the foundation of knowledge that helps forensic operators to prepare physically, mentally, and even spiritually to perform at a top tier level. From our incident site/risk assessment, we determine the scope of work.
