What do suicide, homicide, accidental deaths, disasters, and catastrophes have in common? A mess. That’s right. While the public searches for all the gory details of the story, someone else has to clean up all of that biohazardous material. In Green Bay, Wisconsin, that someone is ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings.
What is biohazardous material? Basically, all bodily fluids such as blood and urine, and other fluids including sewage would all need biohazard cleanup. When you consider that many blood borne pathogens can be transmitted by touching another person’s blood or bodily fluids, the trauma cleanup is no small feat. Protective gear has to be worn. Proper procedures have to be followed. Otherwise, the biohazard cleanup personnel could expose themselves to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or HIV, to name a few. Who wants those? Certainly, not someone who is healthy.
Professionals aren’t the only ones who may encounter biohazardous material. If you find yourself at a crime scene or accident or discover a death, do not touch anything with your bare hands. If you’re the first one on the premises, certainly call first responders first. Let them process the scene.
Blood borne pathogens can also be transmitted by needles, razors, or other sharps. Don’t forget about pets. If a pet’s owner encounters fatal or serious trauma, you don’t want the pet to get into the blood either. Or for you to touch the pet with bare skin at that point.
Crime scene cleanup or trauma cleanup are best left to the professionals. Not only do they need the proper training to handle biohazards, they have to follow proper protocol in disposing of any biohazard or medical waste.
