A biohazard is any biological substance that poses a threat to human and animal health. These substances include bio-active substances, viruses, fungi, spores, toxins, and pathogenic microorganisms.
Human body fluids are a form of biohazard. Human body fluids such as blood, saliva and urine can contain pathogens that can cause serious health problems and damage the environment.
If a crime occurred on your property or someone committed suicide on it, have a biohazard cleanup professional in Clearlake decontaminate it immediately. The longer you wait to schedule a professional cleanup, higher the chances of someone (an employee or a visitor) getting exposed to bloodborne pathogens and other infectious substances.
Many businesses try to do property cleanups themselves. The DIY approach to property restoration is riddled with problems.
If you make a mistake while decontaminating your property, your entire building can become an infection hotspot and your reputation can take a hit. Businesses in your building can even bring a lawsuit against your company for negligence
Biohazard cleanup is best left to experts. Biohazard cleanup professionals are trained to safely handle and properly dispose of hazardous materials and body fluids.
Biohazard cleanup experts remove all traces of hazardous materials from the scenes of trauma. They isolate the affected areas to stop the spread of deadly viruses.
Traditional cleaning products are not effective against all types of microorganisms. Biohazard cleanup experts use powerful cleaning products including professional grade disinfectants, sanitizers and cleaning agents that eliminate almost all types of disease-causing pathogens.
Depending on the type of traumatic event that occurred on your property, the police may commence an investigation. If you try to clean up the scene yourself, you might inadvertently wipe out evidence.
Biohazard cleanup professionals know what type of evidence can be obtained from trauma scenes. When cleaning a contaminated building, they take all the necessary precautions to preserve evidence and can even support investigations.
Property decontamination is an involved process. If you decide to restore your property yourself, you might be unable to make time for the work that matters. A property damage restoration company will manage your project from start to finish, so you could focus on building a roadmap to recovery.
