ServiceMaster Restoration Services
Every day, somewhere in the U.S., someone is the victim of a violent crime or accident. It’s not pleasant to think about, but it’s important to know what to do in this situation. Calling 911 immediately and maintaining a safe distance from the scene is the best action to take in this situation. This is because biohazardous materials like blood and tissue are dangerous to handle without proper training and equipment. The area may be a crime scene, and disturbing the evidence can compromise the investigation.
The caring professionals at ServiceMaster Restoration Services arrive promptly to provide professional biohazard and trauma scene cleaning services in the Elkhorn, NE area. We will remove all biohazardous materials, store them in approved containers, and deliver them to a facility for legal disposal. The affected area will then be disinfected to restore a safe and healthy environment.
Harmful Blood and Pathogens in Biohazards
Cleaning a trauma scene is something best left to professionals. Commercially available products and equipment aren’t strong enough to clean and sanitize the area and biohazardous materials can’t legally be disposed of in household trash. If the person involved was someone you knew, this task may be too much to emotionally handle.
Biohazardous materials are infectious materials that contain bacteria and viruses that can spread disease. They’re found in sewage, mold, and in items found at trauma scenes, like blood, tissue, and other bodily fluids. If you try to clean these items yourself without the proper training, protective gear, or equipment, you’re at risk for contracting an infection or disease. But these items can’t legally be thrown away in the trash.
But the technicians at ServiceMaster Restoration Services are trained in the latest methods of biohazard and trauma scene cleaning and restoration. We use protective equipment to ensure employee safety while preventing the spread of harmful bacteria. Commercial products are also used to fully disinfect and restore the area.
