Professional biohazard cleanup companies are there when you need them, which is often when you least expect it. These companies are experts on cleaning potentially dangerous spaces. With the knowledge, skills, proper equipment, and sensitivity required to handle any job effectively and efficiently, biohazard cleaners are poised to handle many crises and dire situations you may find yourself in. Because many people don’t know what biohazard cleaners do, we’ve broken down four times you should call them for help below.
Biohazard cleaners are trained in handling unattended death
Unfortunately, some deaths go unnoticed for a while and therefore need the help of professional cleaners once the body has been removed. These situations happen more often than one would think especially with those who live alone. After an unattended death, the space may be contaminated with blood or body fluids, and depending on the circumstances, potential property damage or a very pungent odor.
Unattended death cleanup is a service that requires trained blood cleanup professionals who have proper training, equipment, and certification. It’s important to leave the cleaning to the professionals and call a company that can help.
Meth labs/Drug dens should be cleaned with care
Spaces that were once the scene of a meth lab/drug den can result in a number of dangers both visible and undetectable. If you find out that your home or office was once a meth lab or drug den, it’s essential to work with biohazard cleaners to ensure the safety of yourself and those living in/working in the space. Because the risks of residue leftover at meth labs or drug dens can be serious, each state has their own set of strict regulations.
At Xtreme Cleaners, we know the regulations for all the states within the US. With extensive experience and training, we are experts in navigating the strict procedures for testing and remediating former methamphetamine manufacturing or drug den properties. Depending on where you live, you’ll want to work with a biohazard cleaning company that is expertly trained and well-versed in your specific state’s regulations.
Crime scenes should be cleaned by the professionals
Once law enforcement officers release a property after a criminal investigation, the owner of the property is responsible for cleaning the scene. While some may think soapy water and a mop can do the trick, it can be incredibly dangerous. There is a high risk of spreading pathogens when blood spills aren’t properly sanitized and biohazard cleanup companies are trained in efficiently handling these scenes. A crime scene may occur at any time anywhere and certified technicians make it their top priority to restore the scene to a safe condition.
Extreme cases of hoarding can present hazards
Hoarding disorder is incredibly common. In fact, the Recovery Village states that compulsive hoarding affects at least one in every 50 people. While some hoarding situations can be remedied with a few family members and some trash bags, others can result in dangerous living conditions. With staggering stats like these, it’s important to understand the hazards extreme hoarding could cause that may need the attention of a professional biohazard cleanup company.
With the help of specially trained technicians, extreme hoarding spaces can be restored to a safe condition. Avoid the possible dangers related to hoarding like increased indoor air pollutants, biohazard development, and structure collapses with the support of professionally trained experts.
Biohazard cleaning companies handle cleanup that is extensive and needs special attention. They are trained to meticulously clean spaces with care so you can return safely.
