Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

Some unfortunate incidents that affect a house or commercial site have little to do with destructive changes. Contamination involving biohazards can happen with no forewarning. Some involve trauma experienced by people, and others occur because of invasive species like wildlife.

Biohazards not only create an unpleasant environment no matter where we experience them, but they can also create an unsafe situation. SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville's technicians holding AMRT (Applied Microbial Remediation) and HST (Health and Safety) certificates understand the importance of thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing the area involved. We use personal protective equipment, from boots and gloves to face masks and full suits when needed to protect ourselves as we clean up situations.

We also implement air scrubbers with HEPA filters to remove biohazards from the air. Microscopic bacteria and viruses become trapped and unable to cause possible illnesses or other harm. We understand that situations involving biohazards often go hand-in-hand with distraught feelings. You can rely on our professionalism and understanding at all times but especially when you and others need it most.

Please refer to our Biohazard Emergency Tips - Until Help Arrives Guide and follow these tips to protect yourself and your property.

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.

Bloodborne Pathogens

We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO Franchise Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs

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