PuroClean restoration professionals are licensed, insured, and certified to provide biohazard and crime scene cleanup 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 materials can include but are not limited to drug paraphernalia and residue, blood and other human waste or remains, animal waste or remains, and chemical spills. A traumatic event that ended in injury or death are circumstances that require biohazard restoration. Biohazard cleanups provided by PuroClean of North Spokane often involve removing debris, cleaning, applying EPA-approved hospital-grade disinfectants, and deodorizing locations where these traumatic events have taken place.
Keep in mind that the state is not responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. Once police investigators gather evidence from the scene, it is the responsibility of the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered all evidence related to the crime.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put out a standard in 1991 to protect 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.
This standard helps protect approximately 5.6 million workers in the healthcare field and related occupations, which also includes biohazard remediation businesses. Biohazard remediation falls within the scope of the BOPIM standard.
Additionally, the BOPIM standard includes several requirements, as follows:
Common Biohazard Scenarios
Every single time that PuroClean technicians handle materials that are possibly hazardous, they are taking a chance of significant risk to their safety. This is why following precise safety methods and specific training procedures are so important. Following these procedures is not only significant to the technician’s safety but for the safety of the people who will later reside and occupy the affected space once the biohazard cleanup and restoration is finished.
To be employed as a biohazard specialist, certification(s) are not currently required. However, the biohazard specialists at PuroClean of North Spokane have been thoroughly trained and certified as Biorisk Management Specialists, Forensic Operators, and Trauma & Crime Scene Technicians.
Beyond training and certifications, this type of work requires technicians to possess a high level of care, compassion, and attention to detail. There are several property damage restoration companies who offer biohazard services in Spokane, but few place as much importance on both technical training and compassion for those affected as we do at PuroClean of North Spokane.
Reputable and trustworthy remediation businesses that offer biohazard cleanup services train their technicians in biohazard remediation at a level that goes beyond addressing typical property damage due to water, mold, or fire/smoke. PuroClean of North Spokane’s co-owner and biohazard restoration project manager, Jerome Matthews, has received the same Biorisk Management training as Harvard Medical’s emergency response team, forensic specialists with the FBI, and chemical weapons decontamination specialists in various branches of the U.S. Military. In addition to this, his team closely follows OSHA’s guidelines for handling biohazardous waste (even when these guidelines supercede local laws). His knowledge and experience help him guide his team in effective biohazard remediation that protects everyone involved: technicians, bystanders, and current/future occupants. Furthermore, the chance of accidents and potential lawsuits is limited greatly.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade disinfectants of frequently touched objects and surfaces are the much needed actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and since the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services can’t be guaranteed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) for more information about coronavirus, its spread, and prevention.
