We Do the Dirty Jobs Too: Biohazard and Crime Scene Cleaning

5/22/2020 (Permalink)

Biohazard You should never attempt to clean biohazard yourself. Leave it to the professionals!

Biohazard and crime scenes can often hide dangerous contaminants. Exposure to biological and chemical contaminants can put occupants, employees, and owners at risk for serious adverse health effects. We know this is something no business owner wants to be responsible for. 


One example of a biohazard you should never attempt to clean yourself is blood. Blood can house a number of transmissible pathogens including HIV, HBV, and HCV. C. diff and MRSA can also be easily transmitted through blood causing deadly infections. Because of this you should never attempt to handle or clean up some elses blood. When attempting to clean blood, there is also significant risk of just diluting the contaminants, instead of eliminating them all together. Any blood spills, whether they be from accidents or crimes, require professional biohazard cleaning that the average person is not trained to perform safely.
