Innovative

PuroClean RapidDefense™ is the best way to sanitize public areas. Our system helps stop the spread of pathogen-based illnesses, such as Influenza and Norovirus.

Biohazard cleanup involves cleaning, application of EPA approved hospital grade disinfectants, and deodorizing areas where a traumatic event such as an accident, injury, or death has occurred. Thus, dealing with biohazards often means working with blood, human or animal remains, chemical spills, and more.

Our Biohazard Cleaning Services:

  • Blood and Bodily Fluid Remediation
  • Virus Decontamination and Protection
  • Sewage Cleanup and Sanitation
  • Deodorization and Odor Control
  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Hoarding Cleanup

Keep in mind that the state is not responsible for cleaning up a crime scene. Once police investigators collect evidence from the scene, it is up to the property owner to employ biohazard cleaning services. A professional cleanup team can arrive onsite only after the police have gathered enough evidence related to the crime.

BOPIM Standard

The (BOPIM) standard means “blood or other potentially infectious materials”. Infectious pathogens can be anything from Hepatitis B, HIV, and even the 2019 Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and much more. In 1991, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) set forth a standard to protect all workers from risks due to blood or other possible infectious materials (BOPIM).

The standard helps protect nearly 5.6 million workers in the healthcare industry and related occupations, which also includes biohazard restoration 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

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

Every time technicians handle potentially hazardous materials, they are doing so at significant risk. Thus, following correct proper training and safety procedures are very important. This is important not only for their own personal safety but also for the individuals who will reside in the property after the biohazard cleanup is complete.

Bio-Forensic Restoration: Microbial Warrior

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.

We at PuroClean of Wellington have been certified as Bio-Forensic Restoration Specialist® which includes:

  • Pandemic and infectious disease outbreaks
  • Biorisk management
  • Biosafety and biosecurity
  • Crime and trauma scenes
  • Hoarding conditions and unsanitary dwellings
  • Unattended deaths
  • Bioterrorism and the deliberate release of bacteria, viruses, insects, fungi, or toxins that can kill or disable people, animals, and food supplies
  • Mass casualty incidents, including active shooter situations, terrorist acts, explosions, natural disasters, vehicle accidents, and mass transit mishaps (planes, trains, ships, buses).

Is Certification Required to Perform Biohazard Cleanup?

It is not particularly necessary to obtain a certificate to become a biohazard technician. However OSHA does require biohazard technicians to properly wear PPE when handling bloodborne pathogens. Also, you may 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 needed to perform remediation work. As an example, the state of Georgia passed a law that involves companies providing restoration services linked to trauma and crime scene cleanup.

To help ensure the safety of our technicians, PPE is used as the last line of defense. PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) protects the body from coming into contact with hazardous materials, through the skin, eyes, mouth, nose, or any other area. PPE types change with each project, but should always include cut resistant and nitrile gloves, full face guard, properly designated waterproof coveralls, and a respirator.

Reputable restoration companies offer biohazard restoration training for employees. Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety processes for handling biohazard waste is included in the training. The technician’s training greatly lessens the risk of potential lawsuits or injuries from accidents.

The PuroClean Process of Biohazard Cleanup

  • First, the restoration crew will identify the affected areas, conducts a health and safety evaluation, and determines the magnitude of the biohazard cleanup. Once a plan is devised, remediation efforts begin as quickly as possible.
  • Biohazard specialists then take steps to maintain their safety and that of other individuals near the cleanup site.
  • All possible infectious materials are eradicated from the site and properly disposed of.
  • Hazardous medical waste, such as spinal fluid, peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, and other bodily fluids, is handled following OSHA regulations and sent to a licensed hazardous medical waste incinerator.
  • Porous materials like fabric and carpeting that can’t be effectively cleaned are disposed of following industry standards and state regulations.
  • Non-porous materials are either cleaned using hospital-grade disinfectants if the items appear to be salvageable, or removed and discarded if non-restorable.
  • After cleaning is finished, technicians deodorize the affected locations, and will ensure all of the cleaned areas are returned to their previous state in appearance and cleanliness. One way to ensure that the areas have been cleaned and ready for occupancy is to have clearance tests performed by a licensed Industrial Hygienist.
  • Removal of uncleanable contaminated materials, cleaning, and use of hospital-grade disinfectants are usually enough to control odors, and in some difficult situations, other procedures of deodorization are used to accomplish the desired air cleanliness.

Cleaning and application of hospital grade cleaners of high traffic touched objects and surfaces are the required actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s cleaning services are not guaranteed to thwart 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.
