BIO-HAZARD WASTE DISPOSAL
Hospitals and healthcare facilities are breeding grounds for biohazard waste and bloodborne pathogens. Because of the nature of the facilities, hospitals and clinics must be treated with care. Situations, where biohazardous waste is present, must be dealt with care and precision.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY CALL A TRAUMA & BIO-HAZARD CLEANUP SERVICES PROFESSIONAL?
Anytime blood or bodily fluids are le behind, a cleanup is necessary. After traumatic situations like unattended deaths, suicides, and homicides, a professional remediation company can help you manage the situation and ensure that the affected areas are cleaned and disinfected properly. Professional services should seriously be considered if a responding law enforcement officer or another government agent recommends it. Blood is never “just blood”. If you are unsure of or are untrained to handle the situation, give us a call.
Crime scene cleanup is highly specialized and the technicians are trained to follow certain protocols for crime scenes to avoid contaminating the scene and interrupting the investigation. It also takes special training to properly handle any biohazard materials that may be present such as blood and body tissues. You should never attempt to clean these scenes yourself because you could possibly interrupt the investigation if it is a crime scene and if you are not trained to handle biohazard materials, you risk exposing yourself to infections. It may also be very difficult emotionally to clean up a crime scene in which a family member or loved one was the victim.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CLEANUP OF A PROPERTY AFTER A TRAUMA?
Families are typically thrown into a whirlwind of emotions when a family member dies – ranging from anger to confusion to grief. And in the midst of this, the contamination from these deaths can mean that blood and bodily fluids need to be removed from a scene quickly and effectively. But who is ultimately responsible to make sure this happens. There’s a misconception that the police or coroner are responsible for the cleanup, but it’s actually the responsibility of the family. While many people try to do this work themselves, it may expose them to both emotional and physical risks.
HOW LONG DOES BIO-HAZARD CLEANUP TAKE?
Unlike other types of restoration work, which can take weeks and months due the depth of the projects, speed is a top priority of biohazard cleaning. The process typically takes a day, as we get in and out as quickly as possible.
WHAT MAKES THIS TYPE OF CLEANUP DIFFERENT THAN OTHER RESTORATION WORK (LIKE AFTER FIRE OR WATER DAMAGES)?
In addition to the speed and tools used, trauma cleanup is different from other restoration work in other ways, too. Every surface must be inspected to ensure even the smallest sign of contamination is removed. It can be easy to overlook a droplet of blood, but that’s why the detail and care of the work cannot be understated.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TRAUMA CLEANUP?
When ServiceMaster Restore DCS is called to respond to a biohazard cleanup, each job begins with a great deal of discretion. This is important to families who wish to maintain privacy in the midst of a tragedy. Once the work begins, it’s all about care and details. That’s why the training of the staff is so important. Each team member who works on biohazard cleanup is trained and accredited to specifically work with this type of decontamination.
WHY IS PROPER DISINFECTION SO IMPORTANT?
Health hazards posed by blood, bacteria, and infectious diseases can be serious. In cases of a communicable disease or a death or accident where blood is present, there is risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens (BBP), infectious outbreaks, and structural damage to the affected property. O.entimes, these pathogens are invisible, making the disinfection process a challenging task for the inexperienced.
When blood spills are simply spot cleaned and treated with a topical solution, the affected area has not been properly disinfected. At best, this cursory surface cleaning has merely suppressed the lingering bacteria; at worst, it may have missed entire sections where the blood or fluid have pooled underneath carpets or floors. This causes two issues: the likely return of unpleasant odors and the growth of additional bacterial colonies. The ServiceMaster Restore DCS remediation process is a proven disinfection approach and mitigates these concerns.
From fire and water, to mold remediation and trauma cleanup, we are the experts in commercial and residential restoration.
