Homelessness is a serious and growing problem that often results in people gathering together in common and shared spaces. Consisting of anywhere from a few people to larger groups of people spread out over several miles, these spaces are referred to as encampments. Oftentimes, these encampments eventually become a disruption to neighborhood businesses and private property owners as well as the general public, sometimes to the point where there are clear safety and health hazards that cannot be ignored. When there’s a need to clear out these areas and mitigate biohazard risks and legal liabilities, Eco Bear Biohazard Cleaning Company is here to help.

Why Professional Homeless Encampment Cleanup in Laguna Hills, CA is Important
If you’re a business owner in Laguna Hills, CA, you may be tempted to deal with homeless encampment cleanup by having your own staff do the work. But there are some risks associated with this approach to homeless encampment cleanup you may not be aware of.

- Drug paraphernalia
- Urine, feces, and other biological substances from the human body
- Animal and rodent waste
- Decomposing animals if “pets” die within encampments

This is also true if people who come into contact with encampments on your property sustain personal injuries or become ill as a result of biohazard exposure.

How We Clean Laguna Hills, CA Homeless Encampments
Homeless encampment cleanup is often combined with biohazard cleanup due to what’s commonly found within such locations. While we can make allowances for any unique aspects of homeless encampment cleanup that may apply to your situation, our cleanup process typically includes four distinct and beneficial stages.
We start homeless encampment cleanup in Laguna Hills by removing physical items strewn about and any other visible and easily accessible debris and clutter. If appropriate given the situation, certain items may be placed aside to allow encampment residents to claim them.
Biohazard Cleanup and Mitigation
Biohazard cleanup and mitigation is another level of cleaning beyond basic cleanup that involves blood, bodily fluids, and other biological materials that may be found throughout an encampment. Any biohazards collected are placed into proper biohazardous waste containers. They are then taken to a nearby licensed facility for safe and proper disposal.
Once biohazardous materials are removed, the next step taken is to mitigate risks associated with any pathogens that may be left behind. We do this by using medical grade chemicals to properly sanitize various surfaces within the encampment location.
Restoration is the part of the cleanup process that involves any other steps necessary to restore the site. You’ll be left with a former encampment location that is once again safe to use and access.
