Biohazard Cleanup Process
➢ Once the expert arrives at your facility, they might seal the area to reduce contamination risks.
➢ They will put on safety gear and prepare disinfectant.
➢ Then, using tongs or forceps, the team will remove any sharp objects such as broken glass, metal shards, medical sharps, or razor blades.
➢ They will then cover the spill area with absorbent material.
➢ Next, the team will remove the absorbent material, place it in the biohazard bag, and apply an EPA registered disinfectant to the contaminated area.
➢ The disinfectant should be allowed to sit for a few hours. Using paper towels, the team will then remove disinfectant and place the paper towels in a biohazard bag.
➢ They will then place the biohazard bag in a biohazardous waste container for treatment and disposal.
