Servpro technicians in full proper protective gear to clean a biohazard situation in Edgewater Our team has the proper training and equipment to handle your biohazard situation quickly and with the utmost respect and compassion.

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. At SERVPRO of New Smyrna Beach- Titusville, we offer a variety of biohazard cleaning services like:

  • Crime scene residues
  • Suicide/death accidents
  • Homicide cleanups
  • Blood cleanups
  • Accident cleanups
  • Animal waste/remains
  • Tear gas cleanup
  • Meth lab cleanup 

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. 

No Matter the Traumatic Event, SERVPRO is Here to Help!

We have handle biohazard issues in anything from a tattoo shop to a full building of sewage backup that was left untreated for a lengthy time. 

Biohazard cleanups are a little different in that we need more protective equipment for our employees to be kept safe while cleaning up.  

A biohazard can range from COVID cleanings to blood and bodily fluid depending on the situation. 

We often work with local officials when there is any kind of biohazard incident they are involved with to keep the community and the officers safe as well. During the height of COVID we were also offering COVID cleanings to all of the local officials that worked with the community to keep officers and the community safe while reducing the risk of spreading. 

We are always looking for ways to help out our community and keep it safe as well.  

If you know a local official that needs any help or work done please let us know. We love to stay active in our community and keep everyone safe from biohazards while they keep our community safe from everything else. 

Not Quite Normal Yet

While the risk of COVID-19 is still looming over our heads we continue to make sure our employees use the proper safety measures to keep both your and our families safe during these times. 

We are seeing more and more of our community get vaccinated and starting to reduce the risk of spreading this contagious virus. Not everyone is able to get vaccinated at this time but the pools are becoming wider and more available.  

Until everyone has the chance to be eligible we still encourage those who are holding gatherings take advantage of our COVID-19 cleanings in order to keep each and everyone safe until the risk is gone. 

I am sure like us you are all looking forward to the day we not longer have to social distance or wear masks when we leave our house. However, until that possibility becomes true we all need to continue to take the proper precautions to keep those we love safe. 

We are always here to help. "Like it never even happened."
