SERVPRO Has Sufficient Resources to Handle Biohazard Cleanup in Santa Rosa Beach

Removal of biohazards encompasses many aspects apart from the cleanup of materials from the site. There is a need to neutralize any health risks posed by such materials, deal with any odor or stain, and answer any question you might have about the loss. SERVPRO sends a team with the skills and equipment to handle all these aspects during the cleanup of biohazards in Santa Rosa Beach.

Limiting the Spread of Biohazards

For easing the biohazard cleanup process in Santa Rosa Beach, there is a need to ensure minimal disturbance to the affected area. Agitation from foot traffic or even air movements can spread the material further, exposing the occupants to unnecessary dangers. Our SERVPRO technicians can use engineering controls such as plastic sheets to isolate the affected areas before starting the cleanup.

Safe Removal of Hazardous Materials

If there are solid residues of the biohazard left in place, there is a need to remove it safely. Our SERVPRO technicians use shovels and other appropriate tools to scoop the material and store it in leak-proof plastic bags. We also bag any fabric or paper towels we use to clean the area for safe disposal.

Proper Decontamination Procedures

There is a need to clean the affected areas or the property in general to disinfection levels. Different biohazard materials have unique properties, so there is a need to choose the right cleaning solution. It is also crucial to dilute the cleaning agents to the correct ratios. For example, a ratio of 1:100 is for bleaches when diluted with water. Our SERVPRO technicians have access to specially formulated cleaning agents for dealing with different biohazards. Advanced training also helps in following the right cleaning procedures. Therefore, we can remove all types of biohazards, including:

  • Human body fluids such as blood
  • Pathological wastes such as human tissue
  • Animal wastes
  • Dangerous chemicals such as meth lab residues
  • Materials at a crime scene such as gunpowder residue
