The Importance of Proper Biohazard Cleanup
Proper Biohazard Cleanup
When a loved one falls victim to a violent crime, traumatic accident, or sudden death, we are often tasked with the aftermath of cleaning up once the paramedics and police have left the scene. Left wondering where to start, we may be inclined to reach for a bucket and mop and a big bottle of bleach. But cleaning up such a site is a job better left to professionals who are properly equipped for handling potentially dangerous biohazards and better able to ensure the affected area is safe for you and your loved ones to return to.
The Risks of a Trauma Scene
The more we learn about the dangers of bloodborne pathogens and other illnesses transmitted by bodily fluids, the more we realize the importance of only those who are professionally trained in and equipped for handling biohazardous material be tasked with cleaning up the scene of a trauma. Blood and other bodily fluids can carry potentially deadly diseases, including MRSA, HIV, hepatitis B and C, and C. diff. If proper protective gear is not worn when cleaning up a scene or these pathogens are not properly removed, those tasked with cleaning up the scene as well as those who return to the scene thereafter could be at risk for being exposed to these diseases.
The Right Tools for Proper Biohazard Cleanup
There is no such thing as a “universal disinfectant,” and it is critically important to use the right cleaning agents to ensure all dangers are removed from the scene of a trauma. Furthermore, proper procedures must be followed for ensuring the complete removal of biohazardous material and properly disposing them.
