In Times of Distress, SERVPRO is Here to Help with Biohazard Cleanup
Most Edgewater property owners don't think twice about knowing who to call for a biohazard situation until a situation occurs when you need that service. If it does possibly cross their minds, the word “biohazard” typically is thought to be something like bodily fluids or perhaps toxins that need to be cleaned up. However, biohazard cleanup addresses an array of cleanup situations best left to professionals.
What is Considered Biohazard?
Biohazard situations require the decontamination of a home or business due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, and hoarding- not only can these situations be dangerous but they can also be emotional.

No One Expects to Have a Need for Biohazard Cleanup
Situations like criminal activity occurring on your property is something that no one is readily prepared for and the aftermath of criminal activity may require professional cleanup.
Whether you are facing bodily fluid cleanup or hazardous materials, it's best to call professionals who are well-versed in these specialty cleanups and can help you navigate this catastrophe.
What Happens During a Biohazard Event?
If a severe injury or death event occurs in your home or place of business, the pathogens present when blood and other fluids saturate your floors/carpeting, walls, furnishing, and other surfaces must be removed following applicable safety and health codes. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and local health inspection agencies mandate all needed procedures. In trauma, medical or crime situations, we remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue, and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime, or death according to those guidelines.
