How to Choose a Biohazard Removal Cleaning Service
Biohazards are potentially infectious organisms that can cause harm to humans. Because biohazards have the potential to transmit diseases, such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and MRSA, biohazard removal cleaning services go beyond using commercial cleaning agents to ensure a site is truly disinfected.
When selecting a biohazard removal cleaning service, customers should utilize a checklist to ensure the company adheres to professional standards. At Aftermath, we adhere to a 28-point checklist, which illustrates the regulatory compliance and quality assurance standards we follow as part of our commitment to innovation and excellence. Some key factors to look for when hiring a bioremediation company are:
- Proof of insurance: Companies should carry a variety of insurance policies, such as vehicle, worker’s compensation, contractor’s environmental liability, and theft/property damage.
- Thorough employee training: Technicians should receive intensive, thorough training in several areas, including OSHA and other regulatory standards, bloodborne pathogen, personal protective equipment (PPE), respiratory protection, hazardous communication, and heat-illness awareness compliance and training.
- Adherence to proper biohazard disposal methods: Failure to adhere to strict local, state, and federal regulations regarding proper cleanup and disposal methods can result in hefty fines and could pose danger to others. Look for companies either A) licensed to transport or store medical wastes according to standards or B) who partner with companies licensed to dispose of and transport medical waste safely.
