Biohazard Clean-up & Safety Precautions

11/30/2020 (Permalink)

One of the lesser known types of jobs we face at SERVPRO of North Prince William County are those that pertain to biohazards. Biohazard is defined as a biological substance that poses a threat to the health of living organisms, primarily humans and could include blood and bodily fluid.

Part of the precautions that we take to keep our techs safe, is proper training, and continuing education; we are never done learning how to be even better at our jobs. Another part to how we keep our techs safe is through proper PPE, also known as “Personal Protective Equipment”. One of the important requirements for our techs is to have or acknowledge the need for a Hepatitis B vaccination. For extreme biohazard risk, our techs will apply a suit, gloves, face mask, and then seal it with tape, to ensure full security from biohazard elements.

We at SERVPRO of Panhandle always ensure the safety of not just out customers, but our employees too!

SERVPRO of Panhandle is there to clean up after deaths, sickness, sewage, or accidents, so you don’t have to.  Call us today!

Bio-hazard cleanup

We never hope that we need to call for services such as human remains, animal feces, blood spills, or hoarding scenes, but the reality is that there are times when unfortunate things happen in our community. When you need to remove bio-hazardous materials from your home SERVPRO® of Panhandle is the trusted resource at your disposal.

The fact is we are "faster to any size disaster" and don’t sacrifice quality.  We are equipped to handle any type of bio-hazardous cleanup job. The longer cleanup is delayed the worse the environment will get, so reaction time is critical.

In the event of hoarding scenes, we work compassionately with the home owner and his or her loved ones to clean up the scene while other health and/or mental health professionals tend to the affected person.

No one wants to get informed about accidents, death, murder, hoarding, or suicide but if you are in the difficult position of calling for the cleanup of any of these events, and need to have dangerous materials removed you can be sure that we have the highly trained and experienced crews.

If you are searching for bio-remediation, or for a murder or suicide cleanup, contact us, day or night, and we’ll be there to help. Just call 304-263-0640 and our professional staff will be happy to help.

Bloodborne Pathogens
Cleaning up bloodborne pathogens includes removing substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime, or death. This includes body fluids, tissue, and other biological substances. As many people know, dealing with blood is potentially very dangerous. Any time blood is involved in a cleanup job you should get professional help to properly dispose of and clean up the affected area immediately.

Sewage Backup
Such problems are not just gross, they are harmful to inhabitants. If you have a sewage backup it is a health hazard that only gets worse with each passing hour.

However, just like in the above-mentioned cases, when it comes to cleaning the scene SERVPRO® of Panhandle is the company that gets the job done right, and at the best price.
