Yes we are going to talk about it, Biohazard & Suicide Clean Up. 

March of 2020 was by far the saddest month we have had here at our SERVPRO Franchise. We had 17 suicide clean ups and too many Covid 19 clean ups to count. 

The tragedy of a homicide or suicide is a painful and traumatic experience. It takes a professional remediation company to correctly and properly restore the property to pre loss condition. 

Biohazard remediation refers to 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. Due to the possible high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment and a mindset to help. 

Here at SERVPRO our technicians are prepared and trained to handle these tough situations. 

If you ever have to deal with such tragedy or are in need of a biohazard clean up, don't think twice about calling SERVPRO.

In SERVPRO of Benton/Linn County’s line of work, we face a lot of jobs that pertain to biohazard, including exposure to blood or bodily fluids. We are here with the tools necessary to clean up situations that normally would not be safe for the average individual.

Our franchise is there to clean up after deaths, sickness, sewage, or accidents, so you don’t have to!

  1. Part of the precautions that we take to keep our techs safe, is proper training, and continuing education; we are never done learning how to be even better at our jobs. This includes weekly meetings where we go over a particular subject, and training's.

Another part to how we keep our techs safe is through proper PPE, also known as “Personal Protective Equipment”.  One of the important requirements for our techs is to have or acknowledge the need for a Hepatitis B vaccination.

For extreme biohazard risk, our techs  will apply a suit, gloves, face mask, and then seal it with tape, to ensure full security from biohazard elements.

At SERVPRO of Benton/Linn County, we always ensure the safety of not just out customers, but our employees too!
