Why You Need Professional Biohazard Cleanup
Losing a loved one is already traumatic, cleaning up after their death can also be distressing. Additionally, coming into contact with bodily fluids, such as fecal matter and blood, can be harmful to your health. Our team has the tools, equipment, and training to safely and thoroughly clean up the scene. Following proper procedures, we are able to avoid the dangerous effects of coming into contact with these bodily fluids.
Bacteria and viruses can be present in bodily fluids and can pose several health risks or even death. If these fluids aren’t removed properly, they can cause lingering odors and insect activity in your home. To safely clean your home, close off the area immediately and call a professional from Service Restoration.
The Cost of Biohazard Cleanup
Every situation is different, and the cost of biohazard cleanup depends on your circumstances. During the process, several factors that will determine the overall expense. Factors include:
- Size of the Scene:
Are contaminants in one room or throughout the entire home? A small room is less expensive to clean than a whole house.
- Length of Time:
How long were these fluids in the home? The longer that contaminants sit, the more work required to ensure safe biohazard cleanup.
- Amount of Reconstruction
Do we need to replace a single door or an entire wall? Depending on the situation, multiple additional items can become affected. The amount of reconstruction required after cleaning will determine the final cost of the cleanup process.

Our team at Service Restoration follows a strict process to ensure your property is clean and safe long after trauma. This process includes:
- Specific Safety Protocols:
Your safety and health is important to us, which is why we have specific rules in place to follow best practices that ensure the scene is immaculate and sanitized.

The technicians at Service Restoration are experts at hazmat cleanup. It takes a great deal of training to be able to clean up hazardous materials. Technicians have to know and follow all the regulations set up by the EPA.
This is not something that can be done by people without the proper training. Additionally, everyday employees are not legally allowed to clean up hazmat accidents. The EPA monitors compliance with their regulations regarding handling and disposal of hazardous wastes. They inspect facilities that deal with hazardous materials and review their records. Service Restoration technicians know the rules and know the importance of doing every step according to the law.
One of the hazardous materials that the EPA regulates is asbestos, which can be discovered during hazmat situations. If a business has had damage to a building that resulted in asbestos fibers being disturbed, Service Restoration technicians have the proper hazmat suits and the information for cleaning up and disposing of these materials correctly.
Crime Scene Cleanup
Cleaning up the area where a crime has taken place is a stressful and emotional job. After the police have completed their work, Service Restoration can provide specialized technicians who can legally perform a crime scene cleanup.
Human blood is considered a biohazard under the law due to the contaminants. A biohazard is defined as any biological material that can pose a threat to your health. At a crime scene, you can expect to find human blood on the floors, walls, carpet, and items in the room.
Technicians from Service Restoration also know that other human body fluids are also biohazards and have to be cleaned up and disposed of properly. Human blood and bodily fluids are biohazards because they can contain lethal viruses, infections, HIV, hepatitis B, and salmonella.
Similar to crime scene cleanup, trauma cleanup differs though because even though someone has had a traumatic death, it doesn’t mean it was a crime, it could have been an accident.
So, in the case of trauma cleanup, you need to get professional help. Trauma cleanup will involve contact with biohazards. Only trained technicians, which Service Restoration employs, should help you out. For example, there may have been an industrial accident that resulted in a lot of spilled blood. The first instinct is to clean it up, but it’s important to remember that there can be bloodborne pathogens. Without proper training, the cleanup person could catch any number of illnesses. Your safety is important to us.
Additionally, when a person dies, the body can release all its bodily fluids. The trauma cleanup team will have to be trained in the proper disposal of bodily fluids. If the scene is not correctly cleaned up, there are health risks that remain at the location.S
When sewage backs up into a home or commercial property, this is another example of a biohazard cleanup job. Because of all the potential toxins in raw sewage, it is important to have a professional cleanup crew remove and sanitize the area as quickly as possible. Service Restoration can arrive at your site within 60 minutes and begin sewage clean-up before anyone is harmed. Because we are on-call 24/7 365 days a year, Service Restoration can respond quickly.
Raw sewage often contains human blood, hepatitis A, giardia, tetanus, tapeworms, and human papillomavirus. You need a certified, trained professional to keep yourself safe from catching a serious disease.
You may not think of this as being a biohazard cleanup, but many contaminants are present. For example, a hoarder may have rat feces all over their property, but the feces is not easily visible due to the clutter. Additionally, hoarders may have a roof leak that goes undetected and leads to mold. Pets may leave urine and feces throughout the property.
Hoarder cleanup not done properly will lead to infections and respiratory illnesses can occur from breathing in the biohazardous toxins. The technicians at Service Restoration are properly equipped with personal protective equipment and trained to make sure no one is harmed during hoarder cleanup.
After they finish removing everything, they will make sure that everything is properly disinfected so that those who come in later will not be harmed.
Service Restoration has the proper personnel to perform forensic cleaning after a crime has been committed. A forensic cleaner is a technician who is proficient at applying scientific methods to investigating a crime. While our technicians are not detectives, they are capable of making sure they clean up any forensic evidence from a crime scene that can contain biohazards.
A forensic cleaner from Service Restoration is skilled in finding blood and bodily fluids at a crime scene. Blood and bodily tissue can reside in areas that often go undetected, but it must be removed. An expert forensic cleaner will understand the trajectory of a bullet and make sure everything along that line is meticulously cleaned up.
Clients who hire Service Restoration for forensic cleaning certainly don’t want to be reminded of past trauma when they find something that wasn’t cleaned up properly. We are detail-oriented and thorough.
Cleaning up blood can be difficult physically and emotionally. It takes a person who has a strong stomach and a desire to restore things back to normal. Service Restoration prides themselves on their highly-trained technicians who keep the customers interest in mind.
Similar to Trauma and Crime Scene cleanup, blood cleanup is considered biohazard cleaning because human blood can carry any number of diseases that can be transferred to a person who touches the blood or any blood products. It’s important to note that blood cleanup must only be done by a licensed biohazardous waste hauler, so it can be properly disposed of.
In addition, the tools, cleaning cloths, paper towels and wipes, and containers used to clean up the blood also have to be considered biohazards and must follow the regulations for proper disposal. Do not throw them into the regular trash.
