Would you choose and trust the cheapest doctor to treat you for a deadly disease?
Most important, you want to make sure you aren't just hiring some regular cleaner. It is imperative that you hire a company that specializes in forensic cleaning like Biohazard PRO. Although you should always get estimates from multiple biohazard contractors, it may not always be the smartest choice to hire someone because they are the cheapest. Blood, vomit, feces, urine, and other bodily fluids contain bacteria, viruses, and disease that can cause life threatening sickness and even death, so why put you, your family, your employees, or anyone else at risk of contracting something like HIV/AIDS, C Diff, Hantavirus, and many more?
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." -Benjamin Franklin
It takes special training, required and regulated by OSHA, EPA and CDC, to properly handle any potentially infectious biohazard substances that may be present, such as blood, body tissues, and other bodily fluids. Also, proper training for bloodborne pathogens is an absolute must. A biohazard cleaning service company like ours can be very complex.
Aside from the physical and legal dangers of doing it yourself, you psychologically risk traumatizing your self or victimizing one of your employees. Our technicians not only have compassion and high moral standards, but we also obtain the skill and stomach for the job to accomplish a clean and decontaminated house or office, satisfying all your cleaning needs.
Every incident is different and while we can't guarantee your coverage, in most circumstances, your insurance company will cover the cost of biohazard remediation services. We can work with you throughout these stages, as well as be able to communicate directly with your insurance provider to make sure that burden isn't on you. We also offer direct billing to your insurance company.
All chemistry used throughout any of our cleaning services are specially formulated for cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilization. Some other chemicals are used as a bio modifier and can eliminate odors. The cleaning products we use are to aid in the cleaning process of our other specialized equipment, making our procedures extremely effective.
Some of our most important pieces of equipment are a high powered truckmount for hot water extraction (HWE) and a commercial-grade pressurized dry vapor steam machine. These machines allow for very deep cleaning and sterilization and can be used to treat almost any surface without harming the surface itself while using it properly.
Another machine that we use is a commercial grade high-powered ozone generator that can deodorize and decontaminate. This is one of the main tools use during our odor removal process.
Let's break it down; the definition of "biohazard" (or biological-hazard) is defined as substances that pose a threat to the health of living organisms, primarily that of humans. This can include medical waste or samples of a microorganism, virus, or toxin that can affect human health.
"Remediation" is the action of remedying something, in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage. Biohazard Remediation is often the result of crime scenes, trauma scenes, unattended deaths, communicable disease outbreaks, industrial accidents, and other situations that require deep cleaning, disinfecting, or sterilization.
Only trained, certified forensic decontamination technicians should ever perform the removal or clean up of blood or other biohazards. Federal regulations also require proper transportation, storage, and disposal of medical waste; violation of proper disposal can result in big fines and even imprisonment.
