The cost of crime scene cleanup can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including the size of the area that needs to be cleaned, the type of incident that occurred, the extent of the damage, and the location of the property. Sometimes Biohazard PRO charges an hourly rate for services, and sometimes we may charge a flat rate or a fee based on the amount of work that needs to be done.

When blood or other potentially infectious materials are spilled in a home, school, or business, it is important to clean the area thoroughly. The biohazard remediation process involves cleaning and decontaminating areas that has been exposed to bodily fluids. It includes cleaning both visible and hard-to-reach surfaces, removing contaminated materials legally, and applying a hospital grade disinfectant. This process helps ensure that any remaining pathogens are eliminated and that the area is safe for occupants once again. Failure to professionally decontaminate potentially harmful pathogens in your property can cause severe illness, and even death.
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.

All chemistry used throughout any of our cleaning services are specially formulated for cleaning and disinfecting. 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.
We use ATP testing equipment to verify that areas affected by biohazards have been properly cleaned. The test measures cell activity, including bloodborne pathogens. Only when the test registers zero RLU (registered light units) are we satisfied with the level of cleanliness and decontamination. This test adds technology, measurability, verification, and accountability to our biohazard remediation process. We are diligent and thorough because we understand that the health and safety of you and your family are on the line. The ATP tests are for company use only and do not certify any specific level of sanitization, disinfection, or sterilization for customers to rely on. All official disinfection certifications require third party lab-testing companies, which can be costly.
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.
