Cleanup with presence of biological materials like blood and body fluids requires more than a simple surface wipe down with a mop, glove, and bucket. Whether it is cleaning up after a crime scene, suicide, unattended death, hoarding or accident, the affected site must undergo biohazard remediation. This process involves removing any visible and invisible bacteria and pathogens, disinfecting the surface to eliminate any chances for bacteria regrowth, and deodorizing to ensure there is no lingering odor in the home or property.
Biohazardous waste cleanup and disposal requires real scientific thought behind the procedures, equipment and disposal processes in order to ensure the safety of everyone involved – from the family inhabiting the home to the cleanup crew remediating the structure.
Biohazards like blood at a cleanup site may include bloodborne pathogens such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, H1N1 (bird flu) and other communicable diseases. Depending on the environment, these pathogens may live up to 16 days outside the human body. It’s important to call biohazard cleanup professionals when it comes to cleaning large quantities of bodily fluid. Even if it’s from a loved one, close friend, or family, it’s not uncommon for people to be unaware that they themselves carry bloodborne pathogens and that could harm others if exposed.
