Human feces contain massive amounts of bacteria. However, the biggest threats from feces consist of potentially infectious diseases, including viruses, harmful bacteria, protozoa, and worms.

Animal feces and urine also have the potential to contain a multitude of harmful bacterias, worms, and other diseases. Rodent feces, for example, may contain salmonella, hantavirus, and/or lymphocytic choriomeningitis, and other diseases that may result in adverse health conditions or even death.

Anyone who attempts to clean feces on their own risks exposing themselves and others to potentially harmful viruses and bacteria. At Eco Bear, our biohazard cleanup technicians take care in properly cleaning and disinfecting areas affected by feces and urine.

Sharps Cleanup in Camarillo

Sharps are medical, therapeutic, and recreational objects that have been used to pierce or cut skin. Their sharp nature deems them unfit for disposal in regular waste receptacles. In fact, California state law dictates that it is illegal to dispose of home-generated sharps in trash or recycling containers. Instead, all sharps must be put in an approved sharps containers and brought to a designated sharps collection site.

Oftentimes, the site of a medical emergency will be scattered with sharps, vials, and other medical supplies covered in blood and bodily fluids. You should never attempt to pick up or dispose of these items on your own. After all, they have the potential to contain bloodborne pathogens that could put you, your loved ones, or employees at risk.
