Biohazard cleaning is a service that involves cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing areas where a traumatic event has occurred. Dealing with biohazards often means dealing with blood, human or animal residues, or chemical spills. These types of situations range from people getting sick, to a crime scene, hoarding or an unattended death and require a specialized remediation process handled by trained professionals.
When are Biohazard Cleaning Services Needed?
The stark reality is that addressing the need to clean up, sanitize, and restore your property to a habitable condition is a daunting task. It’s important to have a solid appreciation of what situations necessitate biohazard cleanup services and unfortunately, they can happen anywhere at any time. Events that occur at your home or business requiring these services fall under the category of trauma scene cleanup. Common examples include:
- Animal waste or remains
Blood, bodily fluids and tissue cleanup
Crime scene cleanup, including decontamination of chemicals like tear gas
Drug/meth lab cleanup
Hoarding and animal infestation cleanup, including odor and rubbish removal.
Suicide, homicide and accidental death scene cleanup and decontamination
Why Hire a Professional Restoration Company?
Many people are unaware that the cleanup from a biohazard event is the responsibility of a home or business owner and unaware of the serious health risks involved. They try to take on the unpleasant task of doing it themselves without realizing professional biohazard cleanup services exist. Because of the emotional and financial cost of using the wrong techniques and materials or being psychologically unprepared to experience the process, family members and business owners should strongly consider hiring a restoration company with expertise in this area.
- Exposure to biological and chemical contaminants can pose serious health consequences. A failure to properly remediate such substances can cause unhealthy and dangerous conditions.
- Hiring a professional will save you a great deal of time and emotional energy.
- Restore your property’s value. The safest and most respectful way to restore your business or home to its pre-incident state is to hire a team that specializes in the cleaning and restoration procedures you need.
Can my Insurance Company Help?
There are costs associated with moving forward from an accident or other tragic incident. Biohazard events can often require a lot of cleanup, disinfecting and structural repair in order to return your home to livable conditions. The last thing a person needs is the added anxiety of worrying about coming up with the money needed for hiring a company to handle the bioremediation. Fortunately, there are options. From the insurance company’s standpoint, biohazard cleanup is a type of emergency repair, and professional services are likely covered by your homeowner’s policy. It will, however, depend on the type of incident that took place and your insurance policy. Contact the insurance company and find out if there is coverage available for your situation. Make sure you understand what type of coverage you have so that you’re ready beforehand should disaster strike.
