Biohazards are biological hazards that pose a risk to the environment or human health. Most homeowners and business owners encounter biohazardous or infectious waste that involves items contaminated with blood or feces. Biohazardous waste should always be treated as if it is contaminated with life-threatening viruses or bacteria.
Dealing with biohazard materials should always be left to trained professionals. If you are facing a dangerous situation involving biohazards like sharps, blood, feces, or other potentially infectious materials, it’s time to call the specialists at Eco Bear, a local family-owned business serving San Bernardino County, CA.

San Bernardino County Biohazard Cleanup
Dealing with biohazard cleanup following trauma or loss of life requires sensitivity, discretion, and training. Removing and safely disposing of biohazardous materials also poses serious health risks to all involved. Eco Bear offers the training and expertise necessary to safely clean up and decontaminate a scene with specialized processes and discrete technicians.
Every biohazard cleanup project involves the use of specialized tools to ensure safety and cleanliness. Our cleanup team arrives in personal protective gear and uses a combination of hospital-grade disinfectants, no-touch cleaning systems, chemical treatment tanks, biohazard waste containers, and more to thoroughly clean an area. Any objects or surfaces that cannot be sufficiently sanitized and cleaned will be isolated and removed. It isn’t enough for a space to look clean; we also make sure the scene is free of pathogens that can make people ill later.
Nothing compares to the grief of losing a loved one to suicide. One of the first steps in healing is cleaning up the scene of death. It’s a common misconception that first responders clean up the scene but this is not true: family are typically left with the horrific task of cleaning up the scene of a loved one’s death. Biohazard cleanup in San Bernardino County after a suicide can shield you from this emotionally traumatic experience as you attempt to return the home to normal.
Suicide cleaning will involve removing any materials contaminated or damaged beyond repair, including furniture and flooring. The remaining property will be cleaned with hospital-grade cleaners that break down bodily fluids and remove all potential pathogens that can linger on surfaces. All biohazardous waste is handled in compliance with state and federal regulations.
You can trust Eco Bear to deliver careful cleaning that restores safety to your home while protecting your emotional well-being during this difficult time. Our technicians will address your needs in a compassionate and professional manner.
Safely disposing of sharps or needles is essential. Used needles and other sharps can pose a health threat to property owners, pedestrians, and bystanders. Sharps, especially those used for injecting illicit drugs, have the potential to spread serious illnesses like HIV, hepatitis C, and hepatitis B. Eco Bear offers safe and effective sharps cleanup in San Bernardino County for property owners and businesses who have a problem with sharps discarded on their property. We typically offer sharps cleanup as part of cleaning up a homeless encampment, crime scene, parking lot, or park.
Human and rodent feces pose a very serious biohazard threat. Business owners may require biohazard feces cleanup in public restrooms but homeowners and property owners are more likely to require biohazard cleaning following a rodent infestation.
Rodent infestations and their droppings can expose people to a host of potentially life-threatening viruses and bacteria including hantavirus, rat-bite fever, salmonellosis, tularemia, and more.
Eco Bear can help you restore safety and cleanliness to your home or property with biohazard cleanup of feces and other bodily fluids, including rodent droppings and urine after the pest problem is resolved.
Vehicle Biohazard Cleanup
A vehicle biohazard situation may be very simple or complex depending on the circumstances. Vehicle decontamination and cleaning can be as simple as high-temperature steam cleaning of fabrics but it may also involve removing and replacing components of the vehicle. Eco Bear offers compassionate and safe biohazard cleaning for vehicles involved in:
- Suicide, homicide, and death
- Infectious disease outbreak
We follow a strict protocol to ensure safe disinfection and removal of biohazard materials in accordance with state and federal regulations. Our technicians wear personal protective gear and carefully remove, clean, and disinfect blood, bodily fluids, and potentially harmful pathogens from the vehicle. This process begins by containing the affected area and removing visibly stained items. This may require cutting or otherwise removing porous items like car seats. All surfaces are disinfected with hospital-grade cleaning products that break down biological fluids. When biological remediation is complete, your vehicle will be safe and clean to use again.
