Commercial Biohazard Cleanup
Accidents can happen at any moment at your business or commercial property. When the accident involves biohazards, you have to be extra cautious to make sure everything is cleaned up and restored properly.
A biohazard is defined as “a biological agent or condition that is a hazard to humans or the environment.” Some biohazards include pathogens such as MRSA or hepatitis that are known to be highly infectious. Because of the health risks, you should never attempt to cleanup biohazards on your own.
While every situation is different, there are several steps that are common to most biohazard cleanups. Here’s what you can expect if you’re in need of biohazard cleanup.
Before beginning any cleanup, the professionals will establish proper safety protocols. Sometimes an area might need to be quarantined with bio-tape and plastic sheeting. It’s important to follow the right safety measures to prevent further contamination.
Discarding Contaminated Items
Biohazard cleanup includes the removal of any contaminated items or materials from the scene that can’t be salvaged. Items are typically secured in specialized biohazard bags before being removed from the premises.
Disinfection is often done in multiple steps using several different commercial or hospital-grade cleaners that have proven to be effective and safe for biohazard cleanup. Deodorizers are also used to keep odors from developing as time passes.
Safe Disposal of Biohazards
After everything is disinfected, it will be time to systematically take down any quarantine structures and materials that may have been used.
In order to prevent contamination, any of the items that may have been exposed to biohazards are disposed according to established government regulations and industry standard best practices.
