March 13th, 2019 · No Comments

Blood and bodily fluids pose a serious hazard in your Bayonne, NJ home. These materials are biohazards and can cause severe health issues and spread infections. If there has been an accident or trauma in your home, it’s time to call the experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan for biohazard cleanup. Our professionals have the tools and training to perform safe and effective cleanup. Today, we’re going to explore how experience and expertise drive our biohazard cleanup services, ensuring your property is made safe again.


Effective Cleaning Procedures

Biohazardous materials aren’t something you can simply dump bleach on and call clean. It takes a combination of using appropriate cleaning solutions and techniques to perform effective and safe biohazard cleanup.


  • Using Fresh Disinfectant Solutions: Disinfectant solutions lose their potency over time. That’s why we make sure that the chlorine solutions we use are no older than 30 days.
  • Choosing the Right Equipment: We use a variety of industrial grade equipment to perform biohazard cleanup, but one of the most valued and understated are our pour or pump bottles. We never use spray bottles as they can cause our chlorine solutions to become aerosolized and also cause contaminants to spray into the air.
  • Using Appropriate Disinfectants: Depending on the surface or type of contamination, different disinfectants are more effective than others. We’re trained to evaluate individual biohazard scenarios and choose the most effective disinfectants. This allows us to provide a thorough clean without damaging your property. Regardless of the type of disinfectant we use, all of our cleaning solutions are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.


Different Surfaces and Proper Disinfection

As we just mentioned, different surfaces require different cleaning solutions. Let’s take a look at how our biohazard cleanup professionals clean non-porous and porous surfaces without damaging them.


Non-Porous Hard Surfaces

Non-porous hard surfaces are generally easier to decontaminate because they don’t absorb fluids. Some common non-porous surfaces we encounter include:

  • Stainless steel surfaces and countertops
  • Hand rails, door knobs, and handles
  • Chairs and tables
  • All surfaces of toilets, faucets, and sinks
  • Elevator buttons and light switches
  • Floors, walls, and ceilings


We generally use chlorine solutions for non-porous surfaces.


Porous Surfaces

Porous surfaces easily absorb fluids, making them more difficult to clean. Common porous surfaces we clean include:

  • Upholstered sofas/chairs
  • Carpets
  • Wooden floors
  • Draperies


Because chlorine bleach can cause fabric discoloration, we typically use gentler disinfectants. When cleaning fabrics, we always test the disinfectant to ensure it won’t damage the fabric.

The combination of training, experience, and access to industrial grade equipment and cleaners allows our professionals to provide fast and effective biohazard cleanup.
