Blood Cleanup & Sanitization Services
We are often asked, “When should we call Aftermath for blood cleanup services?” We offer this standard rule of thumb: If the spill is smaller than a plate, a person can perform blood cleaning themselves, as long as they use proper protective equipment and legally approved disposal methods.
For cleaning larger blood spills in a commercial or industrial setting, there are additional employee protection guidelines which require the person to have been trained in blood-borne pathogens, safety equipment (PPE) and hazardous communications protocols. Cordon off the area and restrict it from access until all materials have been removed or cleaned and fully sanitized.
If it’s bigger than a plate, call Aftermath.
We are typically called in for blood cleaning and trauma situations, such as industrial accidents, homicide/suicide, active shooter (mass trauma), medical situations such as gastrointestinal bleeding, and transportation accidents. All we do is blood cleanup and biohazard removal.
Unlike a typical general purpose cleaning company or carpet cleaning company, we approach biohazard remediation and cleaning blood spills with a full scientific process to prevent the spread of germs and fully remediate all potential bloodborne pathogens and visible blood stains from the property.
Sorry, we don’t clean blood out of carpets
Contrary to popular belief, you can’t actually “clean” blood from carpet or other porous materials. In fact, many standard carpet cleaning companies will not attempt blood cleaning because of the potential contamination of their equipment and cross contamination to other homes.
Our method for cleaning blood spills includes rigorous cleaning procedures, structural remediation, biohazard removal (cutting away affected carpet and flooring and remove them via legal medical waste transportation), and disinfection of affected and adjacent areas. When we finish, the cleaned areas are tested to ensure no biological material is left to cause damage or odor.
