The Importance of Disinfecting After a Biohazard Event

The Importance of Disinfecting After a Biohazard Event

Biohazard events span a broad spectrum, from a crime scene or biohazardous material spill to a stomach bug accident in a public space. Surprisingly, even forceful vomiting or bowel movements can spread airborne particles across a 25-foot radius! Some gastrointestinal viruses can survive 12-14 days on surfaces including carpets, upholstery, handrails, doorknobs, and electronics.

No matter the size of the biohazard event or issue, you need to make sure your space is safe and ready for public (or private) access again. At Palm Springs Cleaning and Disinfecting, our Coachella Valley biohazard disinfecting cleaners can help you ensure everything is clean and sanitary. We help our customers feel comfortable reentering a space after a biohazard event with quick, effective, and professional disinfecting cleaning services.

Prevent Illness and Exposure with Biohazard Disinfecting Cleaning

Whether cleaning up at a school after a sick student has an accident or triaging a crime scene involving blood and bodily fluids, disinfecting is necessary to prevent the spread of illness, disease, or other dangerous contaminants.

It is critical to use professional disinfecting cleaning methods after any biohazard event to avoid an outbreak and potential disease exposure, from bloodborne pathogens to regular illness. Blood and other bodily fluids create health, safety, and compliance challenges, especially in a work or public use environment. Compliance-related disinfecting is applicable anywhere OSHA bloodborne pathogen regulations apply, so these jobs are best left to professional biohazard cleaners like ours at Palm Springs Cleaning and Disinfecting.

Disinfecting Vs. Janitorial Cleaning

Biohazard disinfecting, also called biohazard remediation, trauma cleanup, or biohazard cleanup, is much more involved than traditional janitorial or at-home cleaning. Biohazard disinfecting refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfecting of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens present after death, accident, virus, or outbreak event.

This type of disinfecting requires strict adherence to safety practices, specialized equipment, personal protective equipment, specialized training, certifications, and licensing. Disinfecting agents and chemicals restore a surface to safe and publicly accessible use and are stronger and more effective than regular cleaning supplies, specially formulated according to CDC regulations.

Fast response and remediation after a biohazard event are crucial so there is no prolonged exposure, leakage, or further contamination caused by blood, bodily fluid, and airborne pathogens. Hiring disinfecting specialists like our team means getting the job done quickly and thoroughly so your space is safe and can reopen as fast as possible.

Even events at home may require professional disinfecting, such as the death of a loved one, a major health issue, or exposure to biohazardous agents or chemicals. It is not worth your health or the health of your loved ones to tackle this job by yourself.
