Biohazard The Bio Hazard Solution in West Tampa SERVPRO Can Restore Bio-Hazardous Conditions

West Tampa Bio-Hazard Cleanup Accomplished by SERVPRO

Dealing with a crime or trauma is undoubtedly difficult. Unfortunately, biohazards can linger at the scenes of these events, creating the potential for new victims if they are not properly eliminated. You can protect yourself from the physical aftermath of a traumatic situation by calling SERVPRO of West Tampa for bio-hazard cleanup.

The Purpose

Blood-borne pathogens, various biohazards, crime scene residues and dangerous chemicals often remain even after the initial crime or trauma. SERVPRO’s professional restoration experts trained in biohazard cleanup have specialized training and equipment that allows us to safely remove any toxic material and restore normalcy to the area. Their expertise is invaluable for people struggling to deal with the repercussions of a variety of unpleasant experiences, including:

  • Crimes and accidents
  • Suicides, homicides, injuries, and deaths
  • Sewage backups
  • Methamphetamine labs
  • Chemical spills
  • Hoarding
  • Vandalism
  • Animal waste or remains 

The Process

When cleansing a scene, professionals create three distinct zones with biohazard tape and plastic sheeting. The clean area provides a place for them to store their equipment, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The buffer zone offers a secure area for them to don their personal protective equipment. The actual scene that needs to be cleaned in West Tampa is referred to as the control zone.

Once the sections have been established, restoration professionals get to work, eliminating bio-hazards using a three-step process. In the cleaning phase, they remove blood, biological materials, dirt, and chemical residues. They also take out any materials that cannot be salvaged, disposing of them as medical waste. The sanitization phase comes next. Here, technicians spray a sanitizing foam over any affected surfaces. This foaming is repeatedly done until adenosine triphosphate fluorescence testing verifies that the area has been thoroughly sanitized. In the final phase, technicians use deodorizing agents to remove any odors.

Our professional technicians have the empathy and expertise needed to tackle biohazard cleanup and restoration situations.
