Since blood and body fluids can carry and transmit diseases from one person to another, any bio cleanup situation (after a death or violent crime) must be handled as if it were a biohazard. HIV, hepatitis B and C are primary concerns, as well as malaria, syphilis, Creutzfeldt-Jakob (mad cow disease) and many other virus’ and bacteria. Considering the possibilities to come in contact with contaminated tissues and fluids during bio cleanup, Clean Earth Restorations highly recommends using a *CTS Decon service to do the work. (*Crime and Trauma Scene Decontamination)
Contamination can happen when blood, body tissues or fluids at the death or crime scene come into contact with the cleaner’s skin, mouth, eyes or nose.
Using the proper protocol and protection is an absolute necessity to lower the risk of spreading disease. Disposable gloves and eye protection are a must, as well as covering and protecting any cuts, scrapes or sores. Knowing how to remove and dispose of protective gear is as important as using it in the first place. In addition, biohazard warning labels must be used on all waste bags, and the bags must be disposed of through a registered provider.
In most cases, when people elect to take on a bio cleanup project on their own, it’s because they want to avoid the cost of a professional service. You should know however that many insurance companies cover these types of costs. Check with your insurance agent for details.
