SERVPRO of Vancouver/ Clark County along with most franchises within SERVPRO are known for water damage remediation and fire damage remediation. But SERVPRO of Vancouver/ Clark County also cleans up after a biohazard. You might be wondering why you would need to hire a company to clean a biohazard. Why would biohazard clean up apply to me or my business? What is considered a biohazard? And how is a biohazard clean up different from a regular clean up? Before we start answering all of those questions we are going to focus on what a biohazard is.

A biohazard can pose serious health consequences and contribute to unhealthy and dangerous environments. Biohazards come from biological microorganisms, medical waste, and sometimes caused by viruses, including COVID-19. Decontamination requires training and cleaning products that aren’t sold on supermarket shelves.

SERVPRO provides expertise in mitigation and restoration after your home or business experiences any catastrophe. If you are looking for an emergency restoration company in Southwest Washington, make sure to call (360) 254-0049. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Bloodborne Pathogens

SERVPRO removes and disposes of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Methamphetamine Labs

SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as methamphetamine are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. SERVPRO follows federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
