Bloodborne Pathogen Cleanup
Aftermath treats all crime scenes and blood spills as if they contain a life threatening infection—and with good reason. Even the smallest trace of blood or biological materials can present untold risks in the form of bacteria and bloodborne diseases, such as H1N1 (Swine Flu), E. coli, or MRSA. Statistics from the CDC show that 1 in 24 people has either HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C.
These diseases are invisible and yet can cause severe illness or even death, without the proper bloodborne pathogen cleanup. Frighteningly, some viruses can remain dormant and reactivate when exposed to water, putting you and your family at risk years later.
News reports daily warn of infections occurring from a crime scene or industrial accident. Law enforcement and other officials are not responsible for blood spill cleanup or remediation of any damage, such as broken glass, and fingerprint powders and chemicals used by crime scene investigators. The burden and risk falls on the family or business in biohazard situations.
Aftermath uses the same bloodborne pathogen cleanup techniques that food preparation facilities, manufacturing, health care and other enterprises use to eradicate disease and restore safety, for example after a MRSA outbreak.
First we meticulously clean the area with proprietary cleaning agents, followed by a strict disinfection protocol. Then we test the surfaces with a portable adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing unit, which detects whether or not any living organism has survived. We do a second test to ensure that the ATP levels are zero, once the process is complete.
After remediating the scene, our techs dispose of all biohazardous materials in marked containers and take them to an approved biohazard disposal site, following local, state and federal laws. Trust Aftermath for professional and safe bloodborne pathogen cleanup, to ensure that your home and property are protected after any death or trauma scene has occurred.
