Why Is Bio-Hazard Cleaning Important?
Bio-Hazard cleaning seems to be the new buzz word, not surprisingly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The question is what does bio-hazard cleaning mean and why is it important? As experts in the trauma cleaning field, we are willing and able to answer these questions for you.
Let’s start simple shall we. Bio-hazard is defined as something that poses a risk to human health or the environment as result of biological factors such as microorganisms. Common forms of bio-hazards are animal/ human blood and bodily tissues, viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and fecal matter. By simply looking at the definition you can already understand why in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, bio-hazard cleaning is so important.
The reality is that bio-hazards can’t be cleaned by simply using soap and everyday cleaning supplies. Unless these contaminants are cleaned with chemicals specifically designed for the job and applied by a professional, the affected environment can remain dangerous for years to come. Bio-hazards can be very misleading due to the fact that contamination very often lies beneath the surface which is why quick surface cleaning does not offer protection. A common misconception is that all areas can be fully decontaminated, however, saturated material must be removed, replaced, and disposed of properly.
As a professional trauma cleaning company we approach a bio-hazardous scene with caution and start the process by containing the area. We make sure the contaminant is removed from the scene, if applicable, before removing any potential hazardous materials. The entire process takes place under strict guidelines which includes wearing protective gear to prevent any risk to the cleaning team. As mentioned before if we suspect any below surface contamination in materials that can be saturated such as carpets, flooring and furniture we remove these items and discard of them in the appropriate way. We don’t stop until the scene is safe for you to return.
