Biohazardous Waste

Biohazadous waste is any organic substance that presents a threat to human health and well-being. Blood, feces, wastewater, urine, saliva, vomit, semen, vaginal secretions and more are all considered biohazards and you should avoid direct and unprotected contact with these specimens whenever possible.

Situations that often produce large amounts of biohazardous waste include:

  • Crime Scenes
  • Homicides
  • Sewage Back Ups
  • Suicide
  • Unattended Deaths

If you must come into contact with these elements in an emergency or trying situation, it is important that you protect yourself when doing so. Wearing gloves, goggles, a mask, an apron, protective shoe coverings and a head covering are all plausible ways of protecting yourself while handling a biohazard.

Nevertheless, this protective gear will not eliminate the risk. For this reason, it is imperative that once the matter has been resolved you contact a biohazard cleaning company in Chandler, Arizona to handle the aftermath, rather putting yourself and others at risk.

Know the Risks of Cleaning Up Alone

Having said that, we at Eco Bear know that for many, do-it-yourself clean up after a situation involving biohazards seems like the easiest and cheapest way to go about the matter.

While we understand financial constraints, the truth is that there are many reasons we would never advise someone to handle the clean up of large amounts of biohazardous waste on their own. These reasons include:

  1. Money- Having financial issues? We understand. But that doesn’t make cleaning up after a biohazardous situation yourself okay. Though we know financial difficulties can be tough, in reality, you may pay more in the future to repair or remediate any unseen and unchecked damages that were done to the structure as a result of the biohazardous event. Moreover, you’ll be putting others at risk by putting an unskilled hand to a clean up process that, by and large, requires the tools, equipment and training of a professional to render an affected structure totally clean and free from infectious agents.
  2. Emotional Welfare- Sometimes, situations like suicide, homicide, unattended death, crime scenes and more can have a depressing effect on people, especially if they were close to the victims involved. Rather than put a strain on yourself emotionally, it is much better to allow a professional biohazard cleaning company in Chandler, Arizona to respectfully handle the cleaning of biohazardous waste for you while you tend to your own emotional needs.
  3. Physical Threat- One of the most major concerns pertaining to cleaning up a biohazard on your own is the potential for you to contract an illness that the person whose blood, feces, vomit or urine you are cleaning had. Diseases like Syphilis, E.Coli, COVID-19, C.Diff, HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, AIDS and more can all be picked up from touching biohazardous material, and as such, should be avoided at all costs without proper protective gear, especially if you have knowledge that the person involved was infected.
  4. Structural Threats – Last but not least, some damages, especially in the case of sewage backups, go unnoticed, but render harmful, and even fatal, effects down the road. In the case of sewage backup, water can seep beneath the surface of your home or establishment and cause damage to wood, the subfloor, dry wall, structural framework and more. Over time, these unchecked damages may cause significant health and safety hazards including the potential for structural caving, the growth of mold and other harmful consequences.

Don’t Judge a Book By Its Cover

Whatever you do, it is important that you never assume that because you “know” someone, it is okay to handle the clean up of their biohazardous waste yourself. Even family members may have diseases that you are unaware of. In some cases, your loved ones may be unaware of the fact that they are infected with a disease if it is in its early stages.

Never take the risk of cleaning up alone. Call us at Eco Bear or contact us online, today.
