For that reason, it’s important that you turn to a reliable service provider with the experience to handle all your infectious disease and hazardous cleanup needs. Emrick Services has the experience and equipment needed to handle biohazard events of all sizes and types.

Getting started on cleanup and sanitization as soon as possible after a medical event or industrial accident is often the best way to begin processing the events. Whether the incident occurred in the home, a commercial setting, or a public place, our professional biohazard services are available for immediate response. We’re experienced in working around crime scene limitations and timelines as well.

What Does Biohazard Cleanup Entail?

Any material that poses a risk to human or environmental health is considered a biohazard. These materials are simply too hazardous for basic cleaning or handling procedures. Almost any event or accident that results in biological material being scattered across an area can result in a biohazard.

Even something as innocuous as a food fight could require a biohazard cleanup if the residue is left behind to rot. The most common forms of biohazards in both residential and commercial settings include:

  • Sewage, which can backup almost anywhere there is a bathroom
  • Blood and other bodily fluids of humans or animals
  • Manure and other animal waste products
  • Medical waste, which is produced in large volumes at most medical facilities
  • Human and animal remains
  • Rotting food and other organic materials, including wet or soiled fabrics or paper
  • Soiled bedding, dishes, personal protection equipment, and other materials are easily contaminated with biological agents.

There are hundreds of different toxins, pathogens, bacteria, viruses, and other risk factors that can come from decomposing materials. Even a small amount of waste can have a long-term effect on human health and safety. Because many pathogens that come with these biohazards are airborne, it’s essential to begin cleanup services as quickly as possible after a problem is discovered.

No matter what happens, it is essential to evacuate the premises and call for professional cleanup. Trying to use a home or business that has been contaminated with sewage or other waste can result in immediate and long-term health concerns. We’ll remove any remaining contaminants, deep clean all residues, thoroughly sanitize the area, take out any damaged or unsalvageable materials, deodorize the space, and prepare it for reoccupation.

Why Biohazard Cleanup Is Complex and Requires Careful Handling

Each biohazard event is different, so each job requires a custom approach. That process starts with a cleanup plan. When we arrive on the scene to help a new client, we start by visiting the property and assessing the situation. Planning out the cleanup approach ensures that no hazard goes unaddressed during sanitization. Biohazard cleanup is a nuanced and many-layered process that requires a team of experienced professionals working together. A detailed biohazard abatement plan is essential for every project.

Challenges are often posed by the porosity of materials used in commercial and residential buildings. Hard surfaces can be steam cleaned and sanitized with chemicals, but carpet, wood, and other absorbent materials require far more complex cleaning techniques.
