Biohazard Cleanup and the Importance of Selecting the Right Disinfectant

If any biohazard incident occurs in your home in Hackensack, NJ, the risk of infectious diseases spreading throughout your home after the incident is possible. To prevent such a situation, it’s imperative that you immediately contact ServiceMaster Metropolitan, a professional biohazard cleanup firm that can thoroughly and safely clean and decontaminate your home and belongings.

Our experts will decide what items can be properly cleaned and disinfected or need to be discarded. They will also utilize their experience to select the right disinfectants suitable for the biohazards present in your home after the incident.

Today, we’ll look at few of the aspects our technicians analyze while selecting a disinfectant.

Biohazard Cleanup and the Selection of Disinfectants

The Most Suitable Tuberculocide

The disinfectant being used should be effective and suitable for the surface being disinfected. When it becomes necessary to select the strongest disinfectant, experts prefer using a tuberculocide that is EPA registered.

Tuberculocides have a higher kill claim compared to a standard disinfectant. In addition, they provide the best results for different types of surfaces as well as circumstances.

The Right Efficacy

Our technicians are aware of the fact that different tuberculocides vary in their level of efficacy and have ingredients which can have liability, safety, and health implications. As such, they utilize their experience to select a safe tuberculocide and closely examine the details on the product’s Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and label to ensure it’s safe for your home.

The Right Scent

Biohazard cleanup technicians select disinfectants that have a light scent which dissipates very quickly to ensure you won’t have to bear the unpleasant scents certain disinfectants have or may leave behind.

In addition, odor counteractants can be used effectively only when the disinfectant doesn’t have a strong scent. By selecting the right disinfectant, our experts ensure the disinfectant will not be dictating how the biohazard incident site smells after the work is finished.

The Desired Performance

Our technicians make sure that the disinfectant they select also contains a surfactant as part of its formula. The benefit of surfactants is that they enhance a disinfectant’s performance and also make it possible for the disinfectant to function as a cleaner.

Many disinfectants leave a sticky residue over the surface when they dry, but such a thing doesn’t happen when a disinfectant contains a surfactant. This helps in reducing the time that’s spent rinsing the disinfectant product from the surface where it was applied.

From the above information it’s clear that hiring experts for biohazard cleanup is quite important.
