The Aftermath Remediation Process
We complete an initial walk-through and OSHA-mandated employee-safety hazard assessment of the scene.
We use OSHA’s recommended cross-contamination protocol to control the affected area by securing and separating it from other parts of the structure.
We remove all visible traces of blood and biological materials from the affected area. This is the most dangerous step of the remediation process.
After removal, we clean, disinfect, and deodorize affected surfaces using EPA-rated disinfectants.
Upon completion, we use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing technology to guarantee hospital-level standards of disinfection.
