First what is a biohazard job?

Biohazard jobs are referred as various things. They are often called trauma cleanups, crime scene cleaning or even homicide and suicide cleanups. Not all biohazard jobs are related to crime and death they can also deal with chemical waste or even hoarding situations.

Don’t Do It Yourself

The reason it is always best to have a cleaning company handle biohazard jobs is due to certain steps being missed. A cleaning company doesn’t simply clean and disinfect the effected area, they examine the room and make sure there are no additional remains found at the scene. If body remains or fluids are found they will need to be cut out. For example if blood has gone through the carpet and into the wood flooring the carpet and wood flooring will need to be cut out and thrown away properly. 

Another reason to use a cleaning company is the tools used to keep a safe distance from any waste. The cleaning technicians use proper garments where they are not exposed to any biohazard chemicals or fluids.

Finally, depending on the biohazard scene this will be a very emotional time for you and your family -  dealing with cleanup will only add additional emotional distress.
