Why You Should Hire the Professionals for Trauma Cleanup
The methods that professionals utilize for trauma cleaning depend on what kind of surface the bodily fluid has spilled on. Experienced professionals understand the techniques to be used for thorough cleaning and disinfection of any surface. Let’s go through the different techniques that are utilized for biohazard cleanup.
Trauma Cleaning Services and the Complexities of Bodily Fluid Cleanup
Situation #1: If a Spill Occurs on a Smooth Surface
Experienced technicians are well aware of regulatory standards (such as the Blood Borne Pathogens Standard) to be followed and will ensure that the contaminated area is properly covered during cleanup.
Moreover, the experts know what kind of disinfectant solution to use for this type of cleanup (such as a diluted bleach solution) and the ideal contact time (generally two minutes) that will help achieve complete disinfection of the smooth surface.
The job is not done once the surface is cleaned. Technicians also know that they need to properly dispose of the waste generated at the cleanup scene in leak-proof and sealed plastic bags.
Situation #2: If a Spill Occurs Over Carpets
The process of cleaning spills on carpeting has its own complexities that cleanup professionals have to consider, such as the type of carpeting to be cleaned, so that the appropriate cleanup procedure can be implemented.
To successfully remove any bodily fluids, technicians must select the right detergent disinfectant and follow it up with steam cleaning to make sure that the carpets are properly cleaned and disinfected without causing any damage to the carpets.
Questions to Ask to Hire the Right Firm
It will be easier for you to hire the right firm if you know the right questions to ask to judge the competency of a firm. Here are some questions you should ask:
- Do you follow the required trauma scene management guidelines?
- Is there any exposure control plan? If so, what is it?
- Have your technicians completed the necessary blood borne pathogens training?
