What Being Biohazardous Really Means
One of the many services that SERVPRO of Central Oklahoma City offers is biohazard clean up and restoration services. Biohazard is short for biological hazard, which refers to a biological substance that is known to have a direct (negative) affect on humans or animals. Biohazardous waste is most commonly produced by medical facilities (hospitals, doctor’s office, pathologies, laboratories), nursing homes, veterinarian’s offices, and tattoo parlors. Large amounts of biohazardous waste is produced every day, as they are simply a by-product of a number of commonplace cultural practices and procedures. Common examples of biohazardous waste include used syringes, used needles, and contaminated paper such as used tissues or toilet paper. Biohazardous waste can and should be picked up by a biohazard waste removal company so that it be properly dealt with.
There are several instances in which biohazard cleaning is appropriate. One example of this is crime scene clean up, where bodily fluids or dangerous substances (such as illegal drugs or potent chemicals used to produce illegal drugs) may have been leftover in the aftermath. Biohazard clean up may also be needed after an industrial spill such as a chemical spill at a plant or factory. This type of cleaning may also be needed in the event of animal biohazard contamination.
