During this time of crisis, it is not only the physical environment where the tragedy took place that needs to be taken care of. It is important that the people connected to the victims of the occurrences also receive the necessary care. For this reason we have put together some resources for victim empowerment, as well as a database of trauma counselors.

Bio-Hazard Clean-up

Skitterblink provides professional and experienced clean-up services. Bio-hazards present a potential health and safety problem following and the contaminated area will need to be cleaned by team who have had specialised training. The Skitterblink team have been properly trained to effectively clean biohazards as well as handle the generated biohazardous waste.

Bio-hazards are biological agents that can cause illness, injury, and death in living organisms. Bio-hazards can be found inthe form of  animal/human blood and bodily tissues, viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and many types of fecal matter. Bio-hazards may be very misleading: what may seem like a localized and harmless spill or contamination may very well affect a greater area. Many of the organisms that present a bio-hazard can live on surfaces for many hours or days and spread through various means without proper cleaning processes.

Many times bacteria and odours will continue to grow despite a quick surface clean as the majority of the contamination lies beneath the surface. A common misconception is that all areas can be fully decontaminated, however, saturated material must be removed, replaced, and disposed of properly — Household cleaners (such as bleach) just do not do the job and may be too harsh for many surfaces and materials.

Bio-hazards can spread through:

  • Trauma or Accidental Injury
  • Homicide/Murder/Suicide
  • Blood Spills or Bleed-outs
  • Fecal Matter / Gastrointestinal
  • Filth & General Contaminations
  • Disease/Virus/Bacteria/Fungus

We strongly advise that anyone that may be required or obligated to clean these hazards not do so, as the blood-borne pathogens and other dangers may not be properly cleaned. Household cleaners are effective at masking odours and doing a mild cleanse but proper and full disinfection requires proper training, safety protocols, and proper waste disposal.

For those who are victims of crime or associated trauma, calling a Bio-hazard Clean-up company is the best course of action. We have all the tools and equipment needed to decontaminate homes, businesses, apartments and any other properties that are in need of an extensive clean-up.
