Biohazard Cleanup Services

How Our Biohazard Cleanup Services Can Help You

When a person needs biohazard cleaning, it typically means that an event has occurred that poses health risks due to the presence of biological materials, such as blood, bodily fluids, or other potentially infectious substances. This can include crime scenes, accidents, suicides, unattended deaths, hoarding situations, or any incident involving significant blood spillage. Biohazard cleanup technicians at Indianacleanit and our partners are specially trained professionals who handle these situations to ensure the safe and thorough cleaning and decontamination of the affected area.

Safety Is Our Priority 

When called to a biohazard cleanup scene, technicians prioritize safety and follow a well-defined process. Our trauma cleanup technicians arrive equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, masks, goggles, and full-body suits to protect themselves from potential exposure. The first step is to assess the extent of the biohazard contamination and develop a comprehensive plan for cleanup.

During biohazard cleaning, technicians employ specialized techniques and tools to minimize the risk of cross-contamination and ensure thorough decontamination. They carefully remove any visible biohazardous materials, including blood-soaked items, tissues, or other bodily fluids. Technicians use absorbent materials or commercial-grade cleaning agents specifically designed for blood cleanup to disinfect surfaces, eliminate odors, and neutralize pathogens.

Examples of Biohazard Cleaning Involving Blood & Bodily Fluid Cleanup

  • Crime Scenes: Technicians clean and sanitize crime scenes where violent crimes have occurred, such as homicides or assaults. This may involve removing bloodstains from floors, walls, and other surfaces, as well as ensuring the cleanup of any potential hidden or hard-to-reach areas.
  • Traumatic Accidents: In the case of accidents, such as car crashes or industrial mishaps, where significant blood loss has occurred, technicians are responsible for thoroughly cleaning and decontaminating the affected areas. This includes removing blood from vehicles, equipment, or machinery involved in the incident.
  • Suicides and Unattended Deaths: When a person has taken their own life or death goes undiscovered for an extended period, biohazard cleanup technicians perform extensive cleaning to address blood spills, decomposition fluids, and associated odors. This ensures that the area is restored to a safe and habitable condition.
  • Medical Accidents: When a person has a major wound or major health issue they may leave blood at a home.  This may be something like when a blood vessel ruptures and a large amount of blood splatters outward onto surfaces of the home.  It may also include feces and other human fluids that can happen when the elderly get sick and are unable to clean the surfaces due to being sent to the hospital. This all increases the damage and the attraction of bacteria, bug infestation, and other hazards 

Indianacleanit has biohazard cleanup technicians who prioritize not only the physical cleanup but also the psychological well-being of the individuals involved. They approach the job with sensitivity, respect, and professionalism, recognizing the emotional impact on the affected parties. By taking care of the biohazard cleaning, these technicians provide a crucial service that allows individuals and families to focus on grieving, healing, and moving forward.
