When conducting a biohazard cleanup, most people think using a commercial cleaning agent is sufficient. However, there is no way to know for sure if the affected area has been disinfected properly. Professional biohazard cleanup companies use highly effective methods to remediate crime and trauma scenes, unattended deaths, and other tragic situations to ensure the site is safe.
What are Biohazards?
A biohazard is an organism or a byproduct that is harmful or potentially harmful to human beings. Some examples of biohazards are:
- Medical Waste
Many people think they can only encounter biohazardous materials in hospitals or other health care settings, but biohazards can exist anywhere. Crime and trauma scenes in particular can contain biohazards, and proper biohazard cleanup and disposal methods are crucial to ensure safety of current and future occupants of the affected site.
How Does Aftermath Cleanup Biohazards?
Aftermath is a national bioremediation company that has cleaned and disinfected crime and trauma scene sites for almost 20 years. All technicians are trained in compassionately and discreetly providing effective biohazard cleanup in three steps:
- Cleaning: Traces of blood and biological materials, dirt, and chemicals are removed from the site. If personal property can’t be remediated, it becomes medical waste and is disposed of properly.
- Disinfecting: Technicians then spray surfaces with disinfectant at precise intervals. Next, the crew wipes all surfaces manually a second time before using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, a process that is similar to that used by hospitals and food safety personnel to verify sanitation level.
- Deodorizing: Technicians use a deodorizer to eliminate any possibility of lingering odors.
