Biohazard Cleaning

Biohazard Cleaning in Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds and Bradford

A biohazard is a biological substance that is able to cause ill health in humans and animals. Materials and chemicals included in this group include toxins, germs and viruses. Preventing the proliferation and spread of a biohazard is the primary goal of a biohazard cleaning company. A lot of crime scenes contain blood and other bodily fluids and tissues and it is these spillages that have to be classed as a biohazard and a contamination risk.

The very nature of the job of cleaning up contaminants is a risky one, which is best completed by the highly trained staff of a biohazard cleaning company such as ourselves. When you use us for any biohazard cleaning you know you are using a company that has the necessary permits and safety certificates to complete the task. There is a certain amount of training that any operative of a crime scene cleaning company is required to undertake, in order to remain safe when operating in the affected area, all of our cleaners have taken and passed the relevant training which covers the use of equipment and chemicals used in the cleaning process.

The cleaning up of a biohazard is not just about making the area safe from contaminants, but there is also a need to restore the area back to the way it was prior to the incident taking place. The bio hazardous scene is likely to be a place where a violent death has occurred due to a murder, suicide or by accidental means. Once the forensic and police examination of the scene has been completed, it is the job of the crime scene cleaning company to make the area safe by removing blood and other bodily fluids that may be present.

However, it is not just crime scenes that need to be decontaminated, an area that has been contaminated by infectious diseases also poses a serious health risk. Highly contagious germs such as E Coli, Salmonella, Botulism and Legionella Pneumophila can spread rapidly if they are not treated with the respect that they deserve. Dealing with areas that have been contaminated with these germs and others is a serious business and it needs to be dealt with by a team of experts that have the necessary training and equipment.
