Biohazard Removal & Cleanup Services
What Is Biohazard Mitigation & Remediation For?
Many people tend to believe biohazard cleanup is just deep cleaning. In fact, it is very different.
The industry uses the terminology “Biohazard mitigation and remediation” which means removal and cleanup. This process is the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident or communicable disease outbreak.
It requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing because of the high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens or dangerous chemicals.

What is the difference between removal and remediation?
Biohazard Mitigation (removal) is the first step in the cleanup process to contain the area and remove the contaminant, all traces of potential hazardous materials, broken glass, or other foreign material.
Biohazard Remediation (cleanup) follows Biohazard Removal (mitigation) and includes the removal of carpets, flooring, and other materials that may contain chemicals or byproducts from the initial contamination that could present health threats.
When do I need biohazard mitigation?
You will need biohazard mitigation for your home, office or industrial building whenever there has been a biological contamination to the structural environment.
