Biohazard Cleanup Classifications

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, biohazards are classified as the following:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Microorganisms
  • Toxins (derived from a biological source)

The presence of biohazards, including blood, bodily tissue, pathological waste, and so forth, requires advanced remediation. After all, many of these substances have the potential to harm or even kill those that come in contact with them.

Suicide Cleanup in Pleasanton

According to the CDC, nearly 34,000 people kill themselves each year. In Alameda County alone, there are approximately 8.6 suicide deaths per 100,000 citizens each year. The Pleasanton Weekly’s headline, “Suicides: More Common than Murder,” says it all.

When suicides and violent crimes occur in Alameda County, the Coroner’s Bureau of Alameda County Sheriff’s Office is tasked with investigating the cause and manner of death. However, after the crime scene tape comes down, it is almost always the families who are tasked with cleaning up the scene of a suicide.

When suicides occur, blood and other bodily fluids are usually left behind. These biological substances could potentially harbor harmful pathogens and diseases. These substances must be carefully removed and disposed of per local, state, and federal laws.

If your loved one takes their own life in a violent manner, Eco Bear Biohazard Cleaning Company is here to help you. Our team of compassionate, discreet, and experienced professionals can relieve you of the burden of having to restore your home or property.

Unattended Death Cleanup in Pleasanton

Unattended death is a common yet rarely discussed phenomenon. It is defined as an event when someone passes away without witnesses present. An unattended death may fall into any of the following categories:

  • Accident
  • Homicide
  • Suicide
  • Natural Causes

More often than not, the families of the diseased are headed with the task of cleaning up the scene of death. When bodies are not found for days or weeks following a death, decomposition sets in, leaving behind a horrific and most likely hazardous scene.

Biohazard remediation experts, like those at Eco Bear, must undergo rigorous training regarding the safe and effective removal of blood-borne pathogens, toxic substances, and diseases. They utilize the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regulations when cleaning, sanitizing, and removing waste from a scene of an unattended death.

Rat Dropping Cleanup in Pleasanton

Almeda County is home to various rodents, including the roof rats, Norway rats, and common house mice.
Unfortunately, many residents are not aware of the dangerous and potentially life-threatening risks involved with rodent dropping cleanup. According to the CDC, rodents are responsible for the spread of several diseases, including:

  • Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome: This is a severe, sometimes fatal respiratory infection that can be contracted through the dust that contains rodent droppings, urine, or saliva.
  • Salmonellosis: This is a bacterial infection that is spread when people consume food or beverages contain rat droppings.
  • Rat Bite Fever: Rat-bite fever, or Streptobacillus moniliformis, is a bacterial infection that is spread when people come in contact with rodent droppings or infected rodents.

Due to the inherent dangers of rodent droppings, urine, and saliva, the only sure way to get rid of these potentially diseased specimens is to hire a trained biohazard remediation expert. A team of trained specialists can safely clean, disinfect, sanitize your property to ensure that all of the potential dangers are thoroughly addressed and eliminated.
