July 15th, 2019 · No Comments

Biohazards pose great risks, and after any incidents involving them, it’s necessary to call on experts like ServiceMaster Metropolitan in Morristown, NJ, to perform biohazard cleanup so that you do not have to face any health risks. Our aim here is to explore the complexities our cleanup experts face and how they manage them.


Complexities of Biohazard Cleanup and How Experts Handle Them

If a raccoon gets stuck inside your attic and consequently dies, it is a biohazard. Similarly, if there are bats in the attic, then there are bat droppings, or guano, and this is also a biohazard.

Another biohazard could be a crime scene or a trauma scene where blood is splattered all across a work area. In all these situations, hiring a professional firm for biohazard cleanup is the correct action to take.


Proper Examination of Biohazard Scene

After entering the biohazard scene, the first task our experts undertake is to assess the situation. They evaluate the total area that has been affected and demarcate the space where the cleaning is to be performed.

Our disaster restoration professionals also decide which steps to take for preventing further contamination.

For example, if someone died in a bedroom, then our technicians isolate the room from other sections of the house to prevent the possibility of cross-contamination. In addition, anything to be discarded is packed within the bedroom itself.


Use of Correct Processes

Our biohazard cleanup technicians understand that the same procedure cannot be used in every situation. For instance, while doing the cleanup, they determine whether it would be necessary to remove or destroy each item at the trauma scene.

By making the appropriate decisions, they can reduce the cost to you, and at the same time, achieve desired results.


Disposal of Contaminated Material

The biohazard cleanup task does not end with cleaning the affected room. It’s also necessary to dispose of the contaminated material in the correct manner.

Our experts ensure that biohazard material is disposed of according to biohazard cleanup standards. As such, contaminated items are placed into bags of assorted and organized colors, and then these bags are put into biohazard containers to be picked up and incinerated.

Our technicians also try to control costs by removing only the contaminated parts of bed sets, carpets, and other property instead of removing the entire item. It costs a lot less to haul away pieces of carpet, for example, than to haul away an entire carpet.

These examples clearly illustrate the complex nature of biohazard cleanup work and the varied aspects that are to be assessed from the cleanup of the affected space to the proper disposal of biohazard materials.

Experts at ServiceMaster Metropolitan have the necessary experience, equipment, and technical knowledge to carry out such work in a proper manner.

All you have to do is contact us at (855) 560-7999, and our experts will arrive at the contaminated site in Morristown, NJ, or anywhere in northern New Jersey. They’ll evaluate the scene and get the job done safely and efficiently.
