Has an infectious illness swept through your home or business? Are you in need of crime scene clean-up services? Are you dealing with a backed-up sewer? PuroClean of Wake Forest delivers a full range of biohazard clean-up services, including using the PuroClean RapidDefense™ for a bacterial or viral outbreak. Safety is critical to proper biohazard clean-up. The PuroClean of Wake Forest team will carefully contain the area, remove any unsalvageable materials, and then sanitize those that remain. In addition, our trained technicians will deodorize the site if any odors remain, returning your property to 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.
RapidDefense™ is designed to clean up and protect after MRSA, Influenza, Covid-19, or Norovirus contamination.
Professionals have the equipment and training to safely clean up biohazards without further contamination. This will reduce the likelihood of illness spreading to others at the home or office. Call PuroClean of Wake Forest at (984) 401-2220 and rest assured that your property is in good hands.
Biohazards are any biological contaminants that have the risk of carrying disease, such as those found in sewage, mold, or any viral or bacterial contamination such as MRSA. Biohazards also include toxins found in decaying organisms, as well as bodily fluids.
