Biohazard Cleanup Services for the Charlotte Area

Biohazard Cleanup Services in Charlotte

When blood or other bodily fluids are left at the scene of an accident or death, there is always the possibility that blood borne pathogens are left behind as well. Disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and other biohazards are microscopic, so even though the scene may appear to be clean after using normal household cleanup methods, these hazards may still be present. That’s why it’s critical to bring in professional biohazard cleanup services to ensure your Charlotte home or business is thoroughly clean and safe for occupancy.

Proper biohazard cleanup requires specialized skills.

Cleaning a contaminated scene to eliminate any biohazards that may be present starts with a thorough understanding of the scientific and biological processes that lead to unsafe conditions. At Advanced Bio Treatment, our technicians have extensive training in identifying potentially contaminated materials at the scene and in the most effective methods to disinfect and decontaminate them, and properly dispose of biohazardous materials.

The importance of having the scene of a death or accident professionally cleaned cannot be overstated: Blood and body tissue may contain pathogens that pose a serious health threat, such as MRSA, HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C. If an unattended death has occurred and was undiscovered for several days, the natural decomposition process can make decontamination more complex, since bodily fluids and tissues can be soaked into carpets, subfloors, wallboard, furnishings, drapes, and more. Blood borne pathogens, bacteria, and mold can quickly become a serious problem for persons at the scene who directly contact or even inhale contaminants.

What is Unattended Death?

What is Unattended Death?

When someone dies and his or her passing is undiscovered for a period of time, which may be days or even years, the death is referred to as an unattended death.

An unattended death is very often a traumatic experience for those who discover the death and those who learn that their loved one died alone. To relieve friends, family, and property owners of the difficult task of cleaning up the scene, we offer expert unattended death cleanup services provided with discretion and compassion.

The importance of using experienced professionals.

Calling on a professional death cleanup service not only spares you from having to do the task yourself, but it ensures that the potential health hazards on the scene are completely eliminated.

A decomposing body leaks fluids that release bacteria. Insects are attracted to this and, in turn, further the spread of any toxins that may be present and increase the highly offensive odor of decomposition. Over time, body tissue, blood, and other bodily fluids seep into floor coverings and the subfloor below, and into walls, drapes, and furniture, making thorough cleanup especially difficult and best left to professionals. It is the possibility of the presence of pathogens, however, that make professional death cleanup services absolutely essential, because these pathogens can live for days in just a single drop of bodily fluid. Pathogens can be inhaled, ingested, or absorbed via direct contact and pose a severe risk to anyone on the scene.

The more time that goes by before the death is discovered, the more hazardous the scene can become. A thorough biohazard cleanup and proper sanitation must be done to make the area safe again for humans and pets, and this requires experience in using established procedures and specialized chemicals.

Senior Fall Leaves Bloody Trail

Blood Cleanup: Baltimore, MD

We were called in to the assisted living facility on the south side of Baltimore for a very unusual freak accident blood cleanup.

Jane D., age 89 suffered a mild heart attack earlier this morning. She had been dusting her furniture and suddenly the heart attack which caused her to fall.

When she fell she knocked her leg into her electric scooter which was parked in the living room of her 2 bedroom apartment that she shared with another lady who was out to lunch.

Apparently, part of her pant leg must have gotten caught in the electric scooter. Not only did she get cut when she fell she crawled on the floor screaming for help. She was dragging herself across the entire apartment and blood tracked wherever she went.

There was blood soaked in the carpet, on the tile and the grout. I’ve never really seen anything like it. It was quite awhile before anyone heard her.

Apparently she was trying to crawl to the cord that is used to alert help. She never reached it but one of the staff was notified by someone who had overheard her screaming and got help.

Thankfully, they were able to save her leg with no major damage although from the looks of the apartment she lost a lot of blood.
