The Significant Dangers of Human Waste Cleanup
Human feces and urine can be biohazardous and, in many cases, require proper disinfection by an industry expert specializing in human waste cleanup. Because of the high exposure risk to infectious diseases, human waste cleanup is a specialty service that often requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing.
Human Waste Cleanup Poses Serious Health Risks
If not treated professionally, human waste and other body fluids can spread dangerous infectious diseases like hepatitis A, C. diff, E. coli, rotavirus, and norovirus. When it comes to human waste cleanup, failing to address the issue immediately poses serious health risks to occupants, customers, and employees. Symptoms from exposure to infectious diseases carried in feces, such as C. diff and norovirus, include fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, skin changes, joint pain, and fatigue.
Exposure to urine can also be problematic since urine contains a considerable amount of ammonia. Prolonged exposure can cause upper respiratory issues, headaches, vomiting, diarrhea and even seizures.
Failure to Clean Swiftly May Result in Litigation
Not only can human waste potentially cause health problems to those in the immediate vicinity, if not treated quickly enough human waste can also result in costly litigation. The odor alone could be viewed as a community disturbance, resulting in fines and legal action from neighbors.
Property owners are legally liable for any damages or any illness resulting from improper cleanup and disposal of human waste. Since there is such a large risk in cleaning human waste, it is in your best interest to contact a human waste cleanup professional to remove, clean, and disinfect the impacted area.
Our human waste cleanup professionals are specifically trained and equipped to safely and thoroughly clean up biohazards such as bodily fluids, urine, feces, viruses, and bacteria.
Human Waste Cleanup is Not a DIY Job
Protect yourself and your loved ones from coming into contact with life threatening diseases. There are too many potential health risks associated with human waste cleanup to complete the job on your own. It takes specific skills, equipment, and industrial-grade chemical cleaners to ensure all human waste has been removed, the area properly disinfected, and yourself protected from infection.
Additionally, most people do not have the proper deodorizers to remove lingering odor, but a professional human waste cleanup company does. Industry professionals such as CSCU possess the necessary equipment and training to eliminate the odor permanently.
