1/10/2022 (Permalink)

No mess is pleasant to clean up, but biohazard cleanups and restoration are especially difficult and unpleasant. These types of cleanup situations due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, or other biohazards can be both dangerous and emotional, which is why it’s important to work with a company that is professional and well-trained in all aspects of biohazard clean up. Only specially trained disaster restoration company technicians are certified to complete this challenging and necessary job. SERVPRO of East Phoenix offers this crucial service in our community. Learn why you should work with SERVPRO for biohazard cleanup situations.

Crime scene cleanup

Crime scene cleanup can be one of the most difficult situations for homeowners to face. As the authorities depart from your home after a crime, it’s important to arrange for a biohazardous cleanup of your home as needed. Our highly trained trauma and crime scene cleanup division helps you with this difficult task. Our technicians are trained to follow all federal, state, and local rules to keep everyone safe until the job is complete. When a crime happens in your home, understanding how to handle the situation is important. Our technicians know that nothing can be touched until an official inquiry is conducted and completed by authorities. If the scene resulted in a situation where there might be blood and other bodily fluids, they understand that potential bloodborne pathogens may be present, and take great care to handle the situation carefully, following Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. SERVPRO ensures that all technicians attending to the cleanup of a crime scene have the appropriate training and certifications necessary.

Sewage backups

Fecal and other matter that may occur in a home after a sewage backup needs to be handled carefully, understanding that cleanup also needs to involve likely odor control. SERVPRO of East Phoenix’s trained technicians know there are three types of water that they may be dealing with: clean water, greywater, and black water. Unlike clean water, greywater, a category 2 contaminated water, may contain bacteria and viruses. Blackwater is extremely contaminated, and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth. Sewer backups and similar conditions should be handled immediately whenever possible. With SERVPRO’s 24-hour emergency services, homeowners have a place to turn quickly.

Chemical spills and other biohazards

Exposure to chemical contaminants can be very serious. A failure to properly remove such substances from your home as quickly as possible can contribute to a dangerous situation. SERVPRO of East Phoenix is trained to safely remove biohazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations. They are equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products and can help transform these environments back into clean, safe homes and offices. If you experience a chemical spill in your home, do not try to do clean-up on your own! It’s important to call a trained professional.

Contact SERVPRO for biohazard situations

Biohazard situations can vary greatly in a home, as illustrated above. If you experience any kind of biohazard situation, it’s a good idea to work with SERVPRO of East Phoenix to get the situation handled correctly, professionally, and thoroughly. We’re available 24/7 to help, so don’t hesitate to call us at 602-507-6163 to get the help you need quickly.
