clean biohazardsThere are unfortunate situations that can leave behind biohazardous materials. These events can include suicides, unattended deaths, crimes, or serious injuries. If they occur within your home or commercial building, there will likely be bodily fluids and other biohazardous materials left at the scene.

You should seek the services of a professional cleanup services in these circumstances, as exposure to these biohazards can cause diseases and infections if not handled properly. If not properly trained and protected, you can suffer injury or adverse reactions to the chemicals used to properly treat them.

Leave Biohazard Cleanup to the Professionals

There are several reasons why you should call in the professionals to clean up your premises after a traumatic event occurs.

1. Risk of Disease from Bodily Fluids

Bodily fluids can contain viruses and infectious properties that can be passed on to other humans and sometimes pets. Fluids left after a traumatic event occurs include more than just blood. Saliva, semen, vaginal fluids, vomit, sweat, tears, and urine can all be present. These substances can put you at risk of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or other bloodborne illnesses.

2. Reactions from Cleaning Chemicals

Cleaning products that are used to properly remove the bodily fluids and other remains at the scene can contain strong chemicals. If they’re aren’t used properly, and protective gear isn’t worn, you could suffer adverse reactions. Skin rashes or infections from direct contact, respiratory issues from breathing in dangerous fumes, or worse can occur. Most amateurs don’t have the equipment and gear to protect them from harmful exposure.

3. Time

If your home or business has had a situation where biohazards are present, cleaning them up as soon as possible is critical. Living or working in an environment where these harmful properties exist puts people at high health risks, so the property is uninhabitable until properly remediated. A professional restoration company like PureOne Services St. Louis understands the criticality of fast cleanup and will take care of it promptly.

4. Stress

If you are the property owner where the traumatic event occurred, you are likely dealing with a lot of emotional issues. You are responsible for remediating the situation, but that doesn’t mean you should clean it up yourself. Leaving it to a reputable professional can relieve you of the additional stress you’d experience being faced with the remnants of an already tragic event.

5. Effectiveness

Let’s face it; how often do you deal with these types of situations? If you’re lucky, you never will have to. But in the unfortunate event that you do, you probably won’t be very well prepared to handle it.

You don’t have the proper training, equipment, or solutions to effectively clean up the biohazards. So, any cleanup attempt you make may not be the best and most thorough to get rid of all the remnants. Even if you purchased the proper equipment and chemicals, you’ll probably never use them again, so the cost is not justified.

Failure to properly and effectively remediate and restore the premises can cause unhealthy and dangerous conditions. The best recourse is to hire a professional restoration company who has the knowledge, experience, and resources to restore your property to its pre-incident state.
