Biohazard cleanup is a complex and dangerous task. To ensure the affected area is once again safe, you need help from professional technicians. The technicians at ServiceMaster DSI have the training and experience to effectively clean up biohazardous materials, while preventing the spread of contamination or diseases which may be present.
Here, we’ll look at steps our team takes to tackle biohazard cleanups such as blood or chemicals and to ensure contamination doesn’t spread.
Steps Our Experts Take to Tackle Biohazard Incidences
1: Create a Cleanup Zone
The first thing our technicians do is create a cleanup zone to isolate the affected area. Isolation will ensure that the contamination doesn’t spread to other parts of your home.
How wide should the cleanup zone be? Our biohazard cleanup experts will select an area, typically with a 25 foot radius, that will be wide enough to achieve a complete isolation of the contamination.
2: Stop the Spread of Contamination
One of our top priorities is to prevent the spread of contamination. To achieve this, our experts will utilize non-porous materials to help stop the spread of contamination. These generally include:
- Plastic sheets
- Garbage bags
- Paper towels
- Paper sacks
3: Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
To ensure their own safety during cleanup, our technicians use PPE to limit the risk of infections and the spread of contamination. PPE includes air filtration masks, special jumpsuits, industrial grade gloves and boots, and protective eyewear.
4: Cleanup, Disinfection, and Disposal of Hazardous Materials
There is a lot of preparation that goes into biohazard cleanup, but it’s all necessary for the final cleanup. Using their experience and training, our technicians select the appropriate disinfectants, such as sterilant, tuberculocidal disinfectants, bleach solutions, and coagulants to achieve the best results. The type of products they use depend on the biohazardous material.
Our team also ensures materials used in cleanup are properly disposed of using biohazard bags according to regulatory standards after the cleanup work is complete.
