24/7/365 Emergency Services
Our bio-technicians are trained and certified for the cleanup and decontamination of biohazard situations. We use state-of-the-art cleaning products (EPA registered hospital grade disinfectants) and up-to-date remediation techniques for hazardous materials. We maintain strict compliance with applicable OSHA regulations. And, we dispose of medical waste according to state standards governing such waste.
The following scenarios will demand biohazard cleanup services:
- Trauma and blood scenes
- Crime scenes
- Unattended death scene
- Unsanitary dwelling
- Sewage backup and leaks
- Industrial accidents
- Meth labs
Trauma Scene and Blood Clean Up
Trauma Scene and Blood Clean Up: Accidents that occur in the home or workplace may require outside assistance or expertise to safely clean and return to normal. These events may require special products and professional techniques to insure complete decontamination.
Crime Scene Clean Up
Crime Scene Clean Up: Acts of violence may create hazards that put untrained and improperly protected people at risk of exposure to potentially infectious material. Our technicians comply with applicable OSHA regulations and all waste materials are disposed of according to state standards governing biohazard remediation.
Unattended Death Scene Clean Up
Unattended Death Scene Clean Up: This term is used to describe the situation when the deceased may not be discovered for days, weeks or even months after the time of death. As a course of nature, the body may have begun to decompose; cleaning in these situations may be a disturbing experience for anyone, particularly for family and friends of the deceased. Our compassionate, professional technicians follow the accepted industry guidance to thoroughly clean affected areas.
Unsanitary Dwelling Clean Up
Unsanitary Dwelling Clean Up: Hoarding may create unhealthy living conditions that harbor vermin as well as pose a fire and/or health risk to the resident(s) and surrounding neighbors. Types of hoarding include animals, paper products, collectable items, and some mental illnesses also lead to this type of behavior. Our staff has experience at restoring property to normal sanitary conditions.
Sewage Remediation: The same human pathogens that may be present at the situations described above are also present when sewers do not carry effluent away from a building. These situations require thorough cleaning and ethical disposal of wastes by trained people.
Industrial Accidents: Workplace events pose additional issues. First Response DRS is proud of the extensive safety training that employees receive. In addition to Bloodborne Pathogen training, many have taken the OSHA 10 Hour and 30 Hour Outreach Training.
Many times, the situations listed above are covered by the property owner’s insurance and for more than thirty years First Response DRS has specialized in these types of projects working extensively with most insurance companies.
