Biohazard Cleanup Importance

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

Biohazard Biohazard Cleanup Importance The proper handling of blood and other bodily fluids during crime scene cleanup is essential to protect the health of the cleaners on the job

During a violent crime, injuries and even death can leave health hazards behind. Blood stains and other bodily fluids can transmit disease if they are not addressed properly, and inexperienced cleaners can face risks if the proper cleanup techniques are not used. If your property has been the site of a violent crime, hiring SERVPRO of Antioch to handle hazardous cleanup is a smart and cost-effective choice.

Cleanup Crew Safety

The proper handling of blood and other bodily fluids during crime scene cleanup is essential to protect the health of the cleaners on the job. Our professional crime scene cleaners have both the experience and the resources to address any hazards that may remain at a crime scene without risking exposure to disease, either to the cleanup crew or to anyone who might access the area during or after crime scene cleanup. Not only will SERVPRO of Antioch use the right techniques to prevent health hazards, they will also bring with them any and all equipment necessary, rather than requiring you to research and purchase the tools and solutions needed to clean blood stains and other signs of a violent crime.

Occupant Safety and Convenience

If crime scene cleanup is not completed properly, the crime site can remain a serious health hazard long after the initial event. Many blood- and fluid-borne diseases remain active threats for significant periods of time, while other issues such as pests or mold could put building occupants at further risk if the crime scene is not properly cleaned. SERVPRO of Antioch will not only ensure the site is cleaned quickly and with minimal disruption to your daily schedule, but also prevent the many problems that can arise when crime scene cleanup is not handled properly and thoroughly. Crime scene cleanup is a job that is always best left to professional cleaners for health, safety, and peace of mind. Working with SERVPRO of Antioch will protect you and your property from the potential long-term effects of violent crime.

SERVPRO of Antioch is registered with the State of California and Certified in Crime Scene Cleaning
