The Dangers of DIY Biohazard Cleanup

The objective of biohazard cleanup is the complete removal of related hazardous materials on your property. These materials include body fluids and other hazardous matter that can get into removed crevices and cracks and present an extremely difficult problem for DIY cleaning efforts.

Due to the extensive cleaning required, these scenarios require the skills and planning of highly-trained specialists like Mammoth Restoration. As experts in restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ, we have the proper level of training and experience to restore a location.

Dangers Involved in Biohazard Cleaning

Biohazard cleanup is a specialized restoration process that should only be done by a reputable restoration company. This involves safely assessing, containing and decontaminating biohazards. These hazards include toxic materials and organisms contained in infectious material, such as body fluids, blood, or the residue of a sewer backup, and can cause pathogenic disease.

Blood cleanup, for instance, contains inherent risks. Pathogen exposure can also occur directly through the eyes, nose and mouth. Skilled technicians understand the relevant protocols and regulations involved in proper decontamination and the work required to complete it.

Dangers Inherent in Fire Damage

Fire damage restoration is also not a DIY affair. Smoke and soot spread throughout every corner of the room. Not only can untrained cleaning attempts potentially lead to more property damage, DIY cleaners can also miss remote corners, like HVAC ducts. Smoke particles can stay there for months, presenting a health hazard.

Dangers Present After a Flood

Flooded rooms, whether from a sewage backup, overflowing sink or a flood, will also require professional water damage restoration services. Moisture promotes mold growth, which releases spores that can cause further damage and even serious health consequences. Mold also finds porous materials, such as carpets, drywall, upholstery, fabric, paper and wood. The trained specialists at Mammoth Restoration have the skills to properly remove both mold spores and moisture, effectively restoring a home.
