Why Professional Expertise Matters in Biohazard Cleanup Being Performed in Livingston, NJ

April 24th, 2017 · No Comments

If there is an incident in your home in Livingston, NJ or anywhere in northern New Jersey involving blood or bodily fluids, this creates the risk of biohazards. Biohazard clean-up should be handled by professionals to properly execute the necessary tasks and avoid any additional damage or contamination. Today’s blog will examine why it is so important to hire the right company for the job, like ServiceMaster Metropolitan.

The Importance of Hiring the Right Professionals

It’s necessary to hire a firm that specializes in biohazard cleanup because hiring someone that lacks the training, credentials, and experience can prove to be counterproductive.

  • Inexperienced firms will lack required knowledge, expertise, equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to carry out this task in the right manner
  • Insurance companies prefer firms specializing in biohazard cleaning because they want to ensure the required cleaning measures are implemented to protect the  safety, health, and wellbeing of the policy holder
  • Technicians that conduct biohazard cleanup need to utilize the right procedures. For example, in the case of water damage, technicians would remove floor boards or carpets if those items can’t be salvaged. After the drying process is finished, new carpet or flooring will be installed. The same procedure, however, does not apply to a scenario where blood has seeped into the floor and subflooring.

Experienced biohazard cleanup professionals are fully aware of these intricate details and take the required steps to thoroughly clean as well as disinfect the location to prevent the spread of blood borne pathogens.

Necessity of Using the Most Effective PPE

The use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to protect technicians from the risk of biohazards as well as the different cleaning products and disinfectants they need to use while performing biohazard cleanup. Many of these products work like strong oxidizers and can result in eye or skin irritation.

Trained technicians understand these risks and utilize different types of PPE accordingly to ensure cleanup is performed without any risk of contamination. Types of PPE include:

  • Splash suits having hoods as well as boot covers
  • Boots that have steel toe protection as well as steel shanks
  • Nitrile gloves with extended cuffs which are resistant to cuts or punctures
  • Eye (indirectly vented gear), face, and respiratory protection gear
