What is biohazardous waste?
When most people think of biohazardous waste, they think of bodily fluids and blood remediation. These can be the result of a variety of situations, including assault, homicides, suicides, or accidental deaths, as well as animal remains hoarding scenes or industrial accidents. Additionally, the chemicals used by the forensics team can be categorized as bio-hazardous waste. Our specialists come in after the police and forensics team have finished, and the body has been removed. Our job is to clean the space, which will allow families to move forward and grieve.
We utilize state certified materials that will effectively remove the contamination, and sterilize the home, vehicle, or building. The chemicals we use are safe, ensuring that they won’t leave any harmful residue behind for the residents. Our primary goal is to restore the space to the way that it was before, allowing families a sense of reprieve and normalcy.
What is the process for removing biohazardous waste?
When it comes to disposing of hazardous waste items, there is a process that must be followed. All of our containers are labeled with biohazard labels, ensuring that they fall within the legal parameters of state requirements. They must be disposed of according to state standards, as well as OSHA regulations. They are sent to a licensed hazardous waste facility. The items that aren’t deeply contaminated can remain in the home and will be thoroughly sanitized and cleaned.
Additionally, we provide crime scene cleanup to people who have been in car accidents or traumatic events outside of the home. We can come to the scene in an unmarked van and ensure that it is cleaned as effectively and efficiently as possible. We work with law enforcement agencies to disinfect their vehicles as a result of blood, urine, feces, MRSA, TB, bed bugs, scabies, or any other contaminant of concern that they encounter. We respond 24/7 to a location most convenient for the officer where the work can be performed.
OSHA regulations guide a bio-hazard cleanup, and all of our employees have completed training in bloodborne pathogens, ensuring that they clean, sanitize, and deodorize the property safely and efficiently. We also take great caution with protective wear and equipment, prioritizing safety for our employees and the residents of the home. Our company follows all the guidelines set forth by Utah and the IICRC who set the industry standards internationally for crime scene cleaners, including documentation of employee training programs and labeling all of our disposal materials. We can properly store and dispose of toxic and bio-hazardous waste, in the proper temperature-controlled environment, as well as the proper time limit.
