Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

What Makes Biohazards Unsafe for Seattle Homeowners to Clean? 

Bio-threats can be primarily misunderstood and even underrated as the substantial risks they can be for those exposed in Seattle homes or businesses. Cleaning up after these losses or traumas can often leave unskilled property owners vulnerable to health effects or threatening conditions in the air or environment. Because of the inherent risks in the restoration and recovery of biohazards, this division of our SERVPRO team is one of the most heavily trained and empathetic. 

What Can Bio-Recovery Technicians Accomplish? 

It might be unclear how biohazard cleaning differs from other more traditional cleanings in Seattlehomes, but it has much to do with what is getting restored. Traumas, bacteria, and other airborne and surface contaminants can become a dangerous situation for occupants of your home to remain exposed to for even short periods. Also, many of the scenarios our team cleans after can be traumatic and overwhelming for the customer, so it is often best for our technicians to work swiftly and confidently towards a satisfactory result. Some of these situations that can get resolved by our qualified professionals are: 

  • Sewage Cleanup
  • Crime and Drug Lab Cleanup
  • Disinfection and Viral Pathogen Removal
  • Post-Trauma Restoration

We have skilled field technicians endorsed by multiple organizations overseeing the education and continued development of our experts, including: 

  • Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) 
  • American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA)
  • Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA)

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.

Bloodborne Pathogens

We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO of Seattle Northeast Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs

SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as "meth" are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. We follow federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
