When it comes to crime scenes, one of the most common biohazards that we encounter is blood. Blood cleanup is common for many of the incidents that we attend to in Crestview, FL, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Gulf Breeze, Navarre, FL, Pensacola, and the surrounding areas. Indoors or outdoors, blood cleanup is essential to prevent the spread of diseases, and our team at Brooks Remediation take all of the precautions to keep our team safe as well as everyone else that may come into the area. In many cases, the amount of blood that we are needing to cleanup is extensive and spread around rather than in a small spot. Contact us today to learn more about blood cleanup and other services.
It is important to be careful when working around blood, as it can carry blood-borne illnesses that can be deadly. Things such as HIV, Hepatitis, and other illnesses can be transmitted via blood, but blood isn’t the only bodily fluid that should be considered dangerous. Saliva, cerebrospinal fluid, and many other bodily fluids can also carry other illnesses, so wearing the right protective gear is essential for protection.
Our team always treats a blood cleanup situation as though various diseases and bacteria are present. This helps to prevent the spread of any of them and keeps everyone safe. There are often many layers that we need to go through to ensure that we address all areas of contamination and to address what needs to be disposed of versus what can be cleaned and brought back to usable condition on site.
Attention to Details
It is important that attention to detail is followed at all times. For example, in some cases blood has fallen onto carpeting. If there is enough of it, it can soak through and get into the subfloor beneath the carpeting. All of this must be addressed otherwise you are leaving the potential for bacteria and illness to form. The same is true of grout between tiles, the underside of baseboards, behind drywall, and more. We will make sure that we check everything to make sure that we are properly cleaning everything.
Blood cleanup might sound simple, but doing it wrong can have a number of implications, none of which are positive.
