SERVPRO Protects Your Family and Property During a Biohazard Cleanup

4/27/2022 (Permalink)

When you hear the term “biohazard” some people envision some sort of toxic environmental situation that they’ll likely never face. However, “biohazard cleanup” may include the removal of blood or other bodily functions, as well as hoarding situations or the presence of drug substances. Some kinds of cleanup are just best left to professionals. Because of the nature of the substances deposited and the training needed to eliminate them safely, the aftermath of hoarding, a health crisis, or criminal activity in your home requires professional attention. Our staff is well trained, and our equipment is designed to help you through this catastrophe.

Crime scene cleanup

If the unimaginable happens in your home, our crime scene cleanup experts can handle it. Whether a traumatic injury or death results in the need for blood or other bodily fluid removal or vandalism or drug trafficking activity surprises you when you return after a time away, we are ready to restore your home and your peace of mind. The pathogens likely present when blood and other fluids saturate your carpets, walls, furnishings, and other surfaces and possession must be removed following applicable safety and health codes. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and local health inspection agencies mandate the procedures employed. SERVPRO of Central Phoenix ensures that all our employees responding to your home are fully certified and experienced in this specialized restoration area.

Drug situations in your home

It’s not uncommon for drug activity to happen when homes are left unoccupied for a length of time. If you come back to your home after a prolonged absence and find drug activity has occurred, act fast and with caution. When potent drugs such as synthetic narcotics and opioids or methamphetamines are involved at a crime scene, even casual contact may unwanted circumstances. Do not expose yourself or your family to these risks. Let our SERVPRO experts clear your home of these and other dangerous substances.

Police activity can cause a biohazard situation

Police enforcement efforts during an event may fill your home with irritants such as tear gas and pepper spray. Evidence-gathering materials can stain and damage surfaces, fixtures, and furnishings. SERVPRO crews use efficient cleaning products and methods to eradicate these residues. Deodorization strategies including advancements such as thermal or ULV foggers and hydroxyl or other oxygenation generators are sometimes necessary to return your home to its pre-crime condition.

Help with hoarding and other biohazardous situations

Family members sometimes face an uncomfortable situation if a loved one has become a hoarder. Besides being overly messy, hoarding can lead to more toxic situations when foods and other substances rot or deteriorate over time. Food and other products can lead to a biohazard situation that again requires the professional intervention of a hoarding cleanup professional. We provide cleanup and recovery services for many biohazard situations. These include the following:

  • Sewage backups
  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
