What is Biohazard remediation?

What is biohazard remediation?

Biohazard remediation contractors are often referred to as crime scene cleaners, but the job entails much more than cleaning up after a death. Since the contractors are tasked with removing any type of biohazardous waste, they often get called to the scene of car wrecks, fights and accidents in the workplace. Additionally, biohazard cleaners will remove animal infestations, clean up animal feces and homes where hoarding has occurred.

A biohazard remediation contractor is not a coroner, and will not remove a body from the scene of a death. Instead, the contractor will come in after the coroner has removed the body and restore the scene to its original condition. The job revolves around containing the biological matter, preventing it from spreading and eliminating it completely.

When to call a biohazard remediation service

A biohazard remediation contractor should be called for the following situations:

• Deaths in the home or workplace

• Gross filth removal

• Trauma scenes

• Car accidents

• Feces removal

• Animal infestations

• Hoarding removal

• Human decomposition
