Frequently Asked Questions

A biohazard is anything biological that can pose a threat to human health. There are five main types of biohazards: animal waste, human (and other) blood products and bodily fluids, sharp waste (often with blood products and bodily fluids), pathological waste, and microbiological waste. All of these materials have the potential to carry diseases that are harmful to humans. If you are unsure of what may be a biohazard, contact us for more information.

When dealing with biohazardous waste, it is always best to hire professionals to clean and dispose of materials. The biggest risk involved with cleaning biohazardous waste is exposure to disease. Without proper protection from blood, bodily fluids, and other biohazardous materials, people are likely to contract illnesses. A professional cleanup company will deeply clean the space and dispose of the biohazardous waste. Hiring a professional means that you don’t have to carry the stress of the cleanup, and allows you to protect your health.

If there is a biohazard on your property, you should first ensure that you make as little contact as possible with the biohazard, then assess whether the authorities need to be called. Next, you should contact a cleanup service and detail the situation to us, we will give you instructions on how you and others can best stay safe. Our team will be on location and cleaning as soon as possible. We are available to help you deal with any biohazard cleaning you may need!

Biohazard waste must be disposed of differently than normal trash. The waste is first decontaminated with high levels of heat to kill any bacteria or pathogens. Once the waste is sterilized, it is disposed of. Biohazardous waste must not be disposed of in a normal trash bin or be disposed of without proper contamination. Waste that is not disposed of properly can put the health of many people at risk. Contact us for more information about biohazard disposal.

All workers on the cleanup site will be wearing proper protective equipment. The hazard will be removed, sterilized, and disposed of. Then the space will be thoroughly cleaned using chemicals designed to kill bacteria and pathogens. Once the scene is cleaned, it will be deodorized and returned as close as possible to its original state. For more information on biohazard clean-up, contact us today.
