what to look for in a biohazard company
Aftermath is compliant with all local and federal safety standards. We adhere to a 28-point checklist that enforces both regulatory compliance and quality assurance.
We know that our customers call us during times of crisis. That’s why our staff is trained to comfort grieving families and complete their work with the utmost discretion.
Our technicians receive intensive training in OSHA and other regulatory standards, bloodborne pathogen, personal protective equipment (PPE), respiratory protection, hazardous communication, and heat-illness awareness compliance and training.
Once cleanup is complete, each area affected by biohazards goes through rigorous ATP testing to ensure harmful pathogens are eradicated on a molecular level, guaranteeing hospital-level cleanliness.
our biohazard services include
- Homicide and suicide cleanup
- Blood cleanup
- Biohazard removal
- Vehicle blood and bioremediation
- Hoarding cleanup
- Coronavirus and infectious disease cleanup
WHY IS PROPER BIOHAZARD CLEANUP & DISINFECTION SO IMPORTANT?
In cases of a death or accident where blood or other bodily fluid is present, there is a risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens (BBP) and biohazards ranging from viruses like Hepatitis to bacteria like MRSA. Statistics from the CDC show that 1 in 24 people has either Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV. Because of these potential hazards, Aftermath has developed and refined a safety-focused, science-based remediation process that protects the health and well-being of our customers, employees, and affected properties. Our cleanup protocols follow OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen Standards, which include practicing universal precautions and equipping our teams with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). We also provide our customers with PPE if they need to access affected areas. Our goal is to minimize exposure risk for all parties involved.
Aftermath understands that the improper treatment of blood and bodily fluids can lead to further health and safety risks, including outbreaks and structural damage to property. When blood spills are simply spot cleaned and treated with a topical solution, the affected area has not been properly disinfected. At best, this cursory surface cleaning has merely suppressed the lingering bacteria; at worst, it may have missed entire sections where the blood or fluid have pooled underneath carpets or floors. This causes two issues: the likely return of unpleasant odors and the growth of additional bacterial colonies. The Aftermath biohazard cleanup & remediation process mitigates these concerns. We verify our work using ATP tests, which measures cell activity, including bloodborne pathogens. Only when the test registers zero RLU (registered light units) are we satisfied with the level of cleanliness. This test adds technology, measurability, and accountability to our biohazard remediation process.
