What do blood, urine, feces and vomit have in common? All of them can make you sick, especially if you come into direct contact with them.
Don’t be. Even your closest friends and relatives could have viruses, diseases or illnesses that you aren’t aware of, and as such, when the unexpected strikes, you’ll need a trained professional to help navigate the tricky waters of handling biohazardous waste and materials.
When Your Health Is at Risk
There may be a time when tragedy springs itself upon you when you least expect it.
Whether it be a suicide, a homicide, an unattended death, a crime scene or some other matter, there is no doubt that the situation could leave you reeling for days, months or even years.
What’s worse is that those who wish to intervene in terms of cleaning may come in contact with blood or other organic body matter and put themselves at severe risk for contracting an illness or disease.
Because it is virtually impossible to look at someone and tell whether they are sick or harbor an infectious illness, it is imperative that those in close proximity to the situation enlist outside help.

Types of Biohazards and Why They Matter
So, what’s the big deal about coming into contact with biohazards, anyway? You can always wash up after coming into contact with a biohazard, right?
Well…yes and no.
While it is true, for the most part, that coming into contact with a biohazard doesn’t guarantee you’ll acquire sickness or disease, it is worth noting that if you do unknowingly come into contact with the germs of an infected person and have open wounds, rub your eyes, nose or mouth, or somehow get that person’s DNA into your body, your chances of acquiring a disease are high.
There are several types of biohazards you’ll want to avoid direct, and indirect, contact with. These include:
- Waste Water
- Human Tissues
- Used Needles
- Vaginal Secretions
- Other Bodily Fluids
Because you may unknowingly come into contact with any of the aforementioned biohazard types throughout your day, it is important to wash your hands frequently, especially before you eat. Doing so can eliminate the bacteria and disease-causing germs on your hands, and thereby keep them from entering your body.
Likewise, if a situation presents itself that puts you at risk for coming in direct or indirect contact with a biohazard, you should do your best to remove yourself from the situation and get help.
D.I.Y. Cleaning and Spontaneous Intervention
It is understandable that in some cases, especially those involving dear friends and family members, you may find yourself spontaneously intervening on behalf of your loved ones to help out, or even to save a life.
When these situations occur, you should still do what you can, if you can, to reduce your risks for contracting illness. Consider wearing gloves, a mask or anything else you can get your hands on to shield your body from any germs and viruses the person you are helping may harbor.
Thinking of taking on the aftermath of cleaning up by yourself? It isn’t recommended.
Doing so will put you at further risk of becoming ill, even if you wear gloves and other protective gear.
The best solution? Call for professional help. Our biohazard cleaning company in Sacramento, California has the equipment, tools and expertise necessary to ward off germs, while ensuring the effectual and thorough cleaning of the structure affected.
