About Rescue Clean 911 – South Florida’s Top Biohazard Cleanup Company

In the wake of a trauma, crime, hoarding situations, or encounter with a disease, cleanup is necessary both for moving forward and for health. These situations are not only a challenge emotionally – bodily fluids and related remains and chemicals are often immediate health hazards, and can become worse the longer they are present on the property. Conventional cleaning methods are neither safe nor suitable for this kind of debris. 

Rescue Clean 911 offers deep cleaning that is specific to the needs of these biomaterials. We use equipment and methods that can collect remains, sanitize every inch of the property, and restore to as close to like-new condition as possible. Our in depth process effectively removes the visible debris and the invisible bacteria along with it, helping everyone on the property move forward safely. 

Beyond the quality of our work, we also guarantee quality service. We put our customers and their properties first, endeavoring always to take any stress or worry out of the cleaning process. We make every effort to preserve your property and restore what cannot be saved. Each of our knowledgeable, professional, and friendly technicians will work to ensure you feel your property is safe with us.

Our phone lines and professional team work around the clock so that we can promise you the help you need at any time.

Licensed Biohazard Removal that Meets All Safety Standards

Rescue Clean 911 is licensed in Florida to handle hazardous waste. We are also certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This organization is a leader in property restoration services, including the proper handling of microbial and hazardous waste.

These organizations have put forth strict standards to ensure your safety and ours. We perform our cleanup and restoration work in accordance with these standards, both to maintain our permits and certifications, as well as to enable us to provide the safest and most effective biohazard cleanup in South Florida.

When Is Biohazard Cleanup Necessary?

Biohazardous waste includes any of the materials that are part of a person or animal, or are a byproduct of a person or animal. The “hazardous” part of this material comes from the bacteria, viruses, and other “germs” that are often found in this type of waste.

While we might come into limited contact with germs everyday, biological waste is considered dangerous when significant amounts of debris are present, and can become more so the longer it is allowed to sit on your property.

Blood is one of the most commonly considered contaminants, but any of the following could be a hazard:

  • Bodily Fluids
  • Body Parts and Tissue
  • Human Waste
  • Disease or Viruses
  • Animal Remains

Blood and other bodily fluids are considered a biohazard in all instances. Unless a person or employee has proper OSHA training in the proper handling of blood and other waste, cleanup should always be left to professionals. Even when an employee is trained, any contaminant spill that is large or at risk of contaminating nearby areas needs professional attention.

For other biological material, determining when professional cleanup is necessary often requires an inspection. Trusting a professional is safest in any case as some dangers may not be apparent, but still present.

Certain scenarios always need biohazard cleaning by a professional service. We are able to clean after any unfortunate events with:

  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Trauma or Accident Cleanup
  • Car Accident Cleanup
  • Hoarding Cleanup
  • Suicide or Death Cleanup
  • Methamphetamine Lab Cleanup
  • Sewage Cleanup
  • Infectious Disease Cleanup (including COVID-19 Cleanup)

The variety of instances where biohazard cleanup is needed, and the range of debris that can be present, necessitates many different approaches to cleanup. Our biohazard remediation is full service, meaning we can clean after any type of event with all the steps needed to fully eliminate the hazards. We can adjust our process to scenes at either residential or commercial properties, and we have the capability to handle large projects with extensive cleanup needs.

The risks associated with biomedical waste also mean that even small events require the right cleanup procedures, and we can help with those too, providing whatever support is needed for your property. No project is too large or too small, because we know that all of these situations can be stressful and require professional intervention.

Risks of Contamination and Infection with Biomaterials

The main reason why such care needs to be taken with damage that includes biohazardous waste is the potential for contamination. This type of waste exposes many pathogens, whether to become airborne or for a person to come into physical contact with.

Not every biohazard site will contain pathogens, but every cleanup should be treated as if it does.

The specific contaminants present at a biohazard site will vary based on the type of incident. Those most common, and with the most potential for danger, are:

  • Blood Borne Diseases – HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C can be transmitted through infected blood. Combined, these diseases result in thousands of deaths each year and any exposure to blood or bodily fluids can increase the risk of becoming infected.
  • Bacteria – Sewage, decomposing tissue, hoarding situations, and other biological debris can carry a range of bacteria. Those people are most often familiar with include Streptococcus, E. coli, Salmonella, and Shigella, although there are dozens more. These bacteria can result in severe sickness if they are accidentally ingested.
  • Infectious Disease or Viruses – With coronavirus continuing to be a concern at many homes and businesses in the foreseeable future, sanitizing completely after exposure to COVID-19 or any other contagious pathogens limits the spread of illnesses.

The dangerous particles in biological material aren’t limited to the areas we can see either. These microscopic pathogens can become embedded in walls, flooring, pavement, and furniture. Removing blood and debris can restore the outside appearance of a surface, but without professional sanitization to remove all bacteria, the microbes remain and continue to be a health risk for up to several years.

We remove biological waste quickly and with all possible safety precautions. This protects people on your property and our own team. The cleaning process does risk further disturbing pathogens which is why professional removal like you get from Rescue Clean 911 is safer for everyone involved.

Long Term Property Damage from Biohazard Waste

The organic material that makes up biological waste leads to property damage, in addition to its health dangers. Odors and staining are two forms of damage that can last for years beyond the initial incident unless cleaned thoroughly and completely. 

Fluid biological material, especially blood, can stain. The more time that passes before cleaning, the more ingrained and permanent the stain will be. As biological matter decomposes, it releases potent and unpleasant gases. These will be present around the site and begin to spread throughout the entire property. Since the decaying organisms can live beneath surfaces if blood and bodily fluids have been absorbed, cleaning needs to remove all matter to neutralize odors.

Certain biohazard incidents, such as a sewage leak, can lead to other property concerns, or mold growth. We have water damage restoration services and mold remediation to correct any damage done by both water and biological materials. Between our ability to handle hazardous waste and our full service solutions for property restoration, we are your partner throughout the process whenever the unexpected happens.

Left as is or cleaned only on the surface, biohazardous waste will have long term consequences that reduces a property’s value and makes the environment unpleasant for tenants or customers. In the most extreme cases, biological waste can make a property uninhabitable. That is why it is so important to put trust into a professional disaster cleanup and restoration company, and why we are open 24 hours a day for scheduled services and emergencies. 

Professional and Safe Biohazard Cleanup

Biohazard cleanup is not typically something that is possible or recommended that a person do on their own. Simply mopping up debris or using store bought cleaners will not be able to eliminate the residual bacteria and viruses, leaving those on your property exposed to health issues going forward.

Attempting to clean hazardous waste yourself may actually be more dangerous without the proper training. It is possible to clean up biohazard waste just enough visually for people to forget about the damage, only to spread the contaminants and bacteria around. 

Not only is there a serious health and safety risk, Florida regulates the handling of biomedical waste and only those with the proper permits are able to legally perform cleanup.

At Rescue Clean 911, our biohazard cleanup is done in accordance with all standards set forward by the state of Florida, OSHA, and the EPA. The Blood or Other Potentially Infectious Material Standard (also called BOPIM) set forward by OSHA details the requirements for any business or employee that regularly comes into contact with biological waste. We rely on these standards in all instances and always:

  • Provide team members with regular mandatory training.
  • Prove that team members are up to date with vaccinations.
  • Outfit our team with the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
  • Establish a controlled environment at any cleaning site.
  • Observe all guidelines for safe handling, transport, and disposal of biological materials.
  • Keep accurate records in compliance with BOPIM guidelines.

We also stay current with changing risks, science, and methods for biohazard cleanup so that we are always using the safest approach to any situation. Along with our dedicated equipment and fast service, we can contain and remove any dangerous debris from a trauma incident.

How Our Biohazard Remediation Services Work

Regardless of the cause – whether it is a sewage backup, crime scene, trauma, or another event – it is an unfortunate fact that the property owner is almost always responsible for cleaning up hazardous waste. This puts the emotional, safety, and financial costs of cleanup on you.

As a biohazard cleanup company, we know the importance of removing biological waste quickly, efficiently, and as affordably as we can. But we also want to make the process simple for you.

We bring expertise from those with a background of experience in trauma, specialized techniques, and competitive prices. From there, we have designed a straightforward yet intensive process for biohazard cleanup. Whenever you need services after a traumatic event in South Florida, our team can provide the range of services you need to get your property back to the way it was pre-incident.

For most of our services, we can begin as soon as you call us. The only exception is crime scene cleanup or scenes where first responders are present, when we must first wait until the authorities “release” the scene or authorities have handled injuries or bodies. We can begin supporting you before that time, however, by letting you know what to expect during your service.

Before you contact Rescue Clean 911, we recommend calling your property insurance company. Depending on the type of incident, many insurance companies will consider biohazard cleanup an emergency repair and may cover a portion of the cost. While the final determination will always rest with your insurer, we can also provide our input based on our experience of what is most likely to be covered.

We are transparent throughout our process. We will report whatever damage or concerns and outline our process for your specific property. Our pricing is always disclosed as well so that you are not surprised afterwards.

The Biohazard Cleanup Process

We always begin cleanup with an assessment of the situation. This enables us to know the extent of the project and every potential risk. Part of this assessment will come from the information you provide during the initial call and any conversations with our team. The remainder is collected through a visual inspection by our trained technicians.

We determine the kind of biomedical waste on your property, including blood, tissue, chemicals, or other materials. We identify objects that will need to be disposed of and those that can be sanitized. The range of debris spread also enables us to set up the right perimeter to prevent cross-contamination and be sure all materials are removed.

The final piece of our assessment involves testing. Using modern equipment, we can detect certain chemicals and bacteria on surfaces and in the air. We can also locate spills or fluids that may have already dried but are still present and could pose a risk.

From this initial inspection, we can begin to safely treat and restore you property with these steps:

Step 0: Maintain Safety Procedures

Safety is our priority throughout the process for all involved. For our team, we use industry standard PPE to prevent contact with pathogens either through direct contact or inhalation. This includes a protective suit, gloves, boots that are resistant to chemical spills, and respirators to filter out airborne particles. Our stringent safety protection is one of the main differences between professional cleanup and handling the process yourself.

We also protect the safety of those around the site by creating a controlled area. We denote any room or area where we will be working and cordon them off from the remainder of the property. Our precautions also make it clear that there are potentially hazardous substances present and caution people not to come near.

Our team is also able to set up decontamination rooms at your site if necessary. While the need for this precaution is rare, it can help prevent spreading viruses or communicable diseases if such pathogens are detected.

Step 1: Create a Plan

Using the results of our earlier inspection and assessment, we determine how intensive the cleaning process will be, including what equipment and products are needed and the expected timeline. We will always share this information with you and provide any updates on plan changes to keep you informed.

Once we have the appropriate materials and all necessary safety precautions in place, we can begin to remove hazardous materials.

Step 2: Remove Biohazardous Materials

Every part of bio waste removal – collection, transportation, and disposal – is regulated to prevent contamination. We manage the collection phase. Special tools help us collect fluids, tissues, chemicals, or any other debris which we then place into biohazard waste containers.

After we have packed waste in designated containers, we work with trusted and licensed partners to dispose of it. Disposal is often done via incineration so that we can be certain any harmful particles are fully eliminated.

 

 

Step 3: Dispose of Contaminated Materials

Removing hazardous waste also includes any materials that cannot be sanitized. Blood and bodily fluids will absorb into porous materials. Even after they have dried, any bloodborne pathogens can still cause infection.

Objects and materials must also be disposed of in the same manner as biological debris. This often includes sheets, mattresses, carpeting, upholstered furniture, and other materials that can soak up fluids. These are securely sealed and transported to a hazardous waste site where they, too, can be properly disposed of.

There are some biohazard scenes, like meth labs or where blood has seeped into walls, where full cleaning requires the removal of built in structures and walls. We can identify if there is a need for this comprehensive cleaning and safely remove any structure.

Step 4: Sanitize and Disinfect

Once all physical material is removed, the next step is to eliminate the microscopic bacteria that remains. We sanitize every surface in our treatment area with a range of solutions based on the type of debris. Our cleaning methods can include:

  • Hospital-grade Disinfectant
  • Steam Injection
  • No Touch Cleaning System

We also have methods to take out stains that discolor surfaces. Often, we can lift these stains with the proper detergents and techniques. Our sanitizers and cleaners are EPA approved and nontoxic so it can be used in indoor areas without any ill effects.

Step 5: Deodorize

At some scenes, removing biological material and unsalvageable objects is enough to mitigate any odors. In cases where decomposition occurred over a longer span of time, the odors may persist. We use industrial deodorizers in conjunction with foggers and ozone machines to disperse the product throughout your property.

When we are done, we will have neutralized any smells so that the effects of trauma will be undetectable.

Step 6: Restore Scene

After decontamination and deodorization, we perform a final verification with advanced testing technology. This reveals any pathogens that we quickly remove before retesting until we can be sure your property is safe again.

Now we focus on restoring it completely. If we removed carpets, walls, or other fixtures, we may seal surfaces for added protection before reinstalling carpets and drywall. We can paint over any sanitized and sealed stains that were unable to be removed.

The end result of restoration is to leave you with a property that shows no evidence of an accident, death, trauma, or other event. We want your home or business to be safe and comfortable, removing any painful or unpleasant reminders and protecting your property and your family or employees.

Depending on the size of the contaminated area and the risk factors, biohazard cleanup can take anywhere from a few hours to several days. Because we know the importance of speed in addition to thorough work, we work at our fastest while at your property.
