If you have a situation that requires biohazard cleanup, you may not know exactly what to look for. Even if you don’t currently require biohazard cleanup services, you may wonder what exactly they consist of. Read on for more information about biohazard cleanup services and to learn more about if they are right for you at this time.

Biohazard Cleanup

Biohazard cleanup is the process of sanitizing, deodorizing, and cleaning an area where a traumatic event has occurred. Biohazard material can consist of human or animal biological residues.

When is it Necessary?

Biohazard cleanup can be necessary in a variety of situations. If there is an unattended death, a biohazard cleanup team can safely and respectfully clean and sanitize the area where an event occured. They can also clean and sanitize any affected areas to remove residues or possible contaminants. A biohazard cleanup team can restore a home or business to a usable and inhabitable condition, helping the surviving victims of a trauma move on towards eventual peace and closure.

Biological Material

When there is a situation involving biological material, a biohazard cleanup company works with empathy and efficiency to sanitize the area where trauma took place. Any affected areas are cleaned of potential bloodborne pathogens and biological contaminants.

In the case of an unattended death, suicide, or traumatic passing, your biohazard cleanup company can make sure that your property is safe and prepped for proper repair and restoration.

Animal Waste

If you have a crawl space in your home or an attic where there is vermin or animal waste or residue, a biohazard cleanup team can sanitize the area, removing waste and contaminants. This can help a home or business to be better fit for habitation. It also reduces the level of airborne contaminants that can trigger respiratory issues like allergic reactions and asthma.

Along with potentially triggering respiratory reactions, animal waste can carry disease contagions such as leptospirosis, hantavirus, rat mites, and more. A biohazard team can clean your home of these contagions, making your space safer and more usable.


When a sewage system goes haywire, it’s not just a plumbing issue. In many cases, this can be a job for a biohazard cleanup team. If sewage backs up into a home or business, the result is not just unseemly and unpleasant. In fact, a sewage backup can result in biohazard contamination of your home or business and can introduce harmful bacteria and microorganisms into your space. A qualified biohazard cleanup company can remove potentially hazardous bacteria, contaminants, and moisture and get your home or property disinfected and deodorized.

Forensic Crime Scene & Vandalism

If your property has been the site of a forensic crime scene investigation, a biohazard cleanup team is equipped and experienced in cleaning bodily fluids, potential pathogens, and substances like fingerprint dust and luminol. Once the crime scene investigation has come to a close, you can leave it to your biohazard cleanup crew to help restore your property enough so that any necessary repairs or restoration can begin.

If your property has been the site of vandalism, a biohazard cleanup company can help with that, too. Vandalism can be removed and the property can be cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized so that your home or business can return to normal functioning.
