We Can Handle Biohazard Clean Up

3/12/2020 (Permalink)

Exposure to biological and chemical contaminants can pose serious health consequences. A failure to properly remove such substances can contribute to unhealthy and dangerous environments. SERVPRO of Richmond and SERVPRO of Henrico is trained to safely remove biohazards and dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and health regulations.

Equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products, we can help transform these unhealthy environments back into clean, safe homes and offices.

Common Biohazard Encounters

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. Our trained SERVPRO professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Crime Scene Residues – From fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals to tear gas and pepper spray residues, SERVPRO of Richmond and SERVPRO of Henrico professionals can clean and restore your property and contents.

Arson and Vandalism – From fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals to tear gas and pepper spray residues, our SERVPRO professionals can clean and restore your property and contents.

Continuing Education Course: Deodorization & Biohazard Cleanup

11/16/2016 (Permalink)

Yesterday, SERVPRO of Richmond hosted a free Continuing Education Course for local insurance agents and adjusters. Most insurance professionals are required to earn a certain number of credits each year to uphold their licenses and be educated on certain topics that pertain to their daily experiences.

The agents were educated by a SERVPRO Corporate instructor on two topics including deodorization and biohazard cleanup. SERVPRO representatives brought in equipment that is used during the process of deodorization and cleaning up biohazard situations. Air foggers, cleaning and sanitization liquids, PPE (personal protective equipment), face masks, and other supplies were put on display and demonstrated by the instructor.

The instructor went into detail explaining our services that pertain to biohazard cleanup such as: sewage backup, crime scene residue, suicide/death accidents, homicide cleanup, blood cleanup, animal waste/remains, chemical spills, etc.

It was a very informative day for our local insurance professionals filled with educational facts and interesting discussions.

SERVPRO of Richmond is always happy to provide these courses to our local agents and educate them on the detailed processes SERVPRO takes to handle any type of disaster or accident.
