Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

What Types of Situations Require a Biohazard Cleaning Service?

One of the most horrific events that potentially can be encountered in a lifetime is the discovery of the body of a loved one who experienced a traumatic or unintended death. When such a scenario occurs, a person is left not only with the deep emotions associated with the loss of a loved one but also with the virtually unimaginable aftermath of coming upon the remains of a deceased person in this manner.

The grieving process is profoundly impacted by the additional responsibility of restoring the scene where the loved one was discovered to a habitable condition. The stark reality is that addressing the need to clean up, sanitize, and restore an unintended death scene to a habitable condition is a daunting task, even for a specialist trained in this type of work. With this in mind, you need to have a solid appreciation of what situations require the intervention of an experienced, professional biohazard cleaning service. Let SERVPRO of Greenwood, Abbeville & McCormick Counties help you in your time of need.

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 Franchise 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.
