SERVPRO of West Riverside City Can Help With Bio Cleanup

What is a Bio-Hazard? Well the dictionary definition is "a biological substance that's dangerous to people or the environment."

Our Primary Concern

It often comes to our attention as a result of a serious injury or death. Cleaning up a Bio-Hazard has many aspects to it. Our primary concern is to make sure our employees and others in the vicinity do not become injured as a result of working in that environment. Blood and any associated blood borne pathogens need to be properly handled due to their inherent risk to humans.

Required PPE

Proper personal protective equipment is just the start. Anyone working with bio-hazards needs proper training in procedures, respirator protection, health and safety and hazard communications. Items such as needles, broken glass or other sharp objects need to be handled very carefully and preferably with a tool that limits our need to contact it.

What Should be Disposed of

Materials that have come in direct contact with blood need to be properly disposed with a licensed waste hauler. This may include PPE, clothing, items used to actually do the cleanup such as paper products and rags, and any cloth material that needed to be removed from the affected site such as cushions, carpeting, bedding, etc.

This work is not particularly difficult, but being able to do the work properly takes a lot of training, planning, careful following of procedures.


Bio-hazard cleanup is different than any other type of cleanup. Not only is there special training to ensure the safety of the workers, occupants, and other people who may have access to the affected area, but there are other issues as well.

We are Empathetic to the Situation

If the cleanup is in a home or residential facility, emotions will be involved. Was it an accident? Was it fatal? What connections to the injured party does everyone have? 

Commercial Safety is Important

If the cleanup is in a commercial facility, is the potential risk of injury to others corrected? Can work continue while the cleanup is being performed, or are critical areas of the facility shut down?

Who Should You Call?

SERVPRO of West Riverside City is fully trained and experienced to handle these cleanups with professional staff that are kind empathetic and caring. 

Our technician is certified in Crime Scene and Trauma cleanup.  We work closely with Sheriff Department and local morgue who contact us for such cleanups.

As tough as these jobs are, it is important to do them right; the first time.
