Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

Cautious Cleanup of Biohazardous Conditions in a Kansas City Home

We often take for granted that our Kansas City home is safe from the infiltration of germs, bacteria, viruses, molds, and other microorganisms that may be detrimental to our health.

Trained SERVPRO of Oletha / Lenexa technicians can help since we have accreditations from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications (IICRC). The IICRC provides a broad range of courses and guidelines to minimize cleanup mishaps during the actual service.

Sources of Biohazardous Risks

Microorganisms can be beneficial, neutral, or health-threatening to individuals who live in the Kansas City area. When a safe and secure removal is required to restore a biohazardous scenario to its preloss condition, our SERVPRO crew:

• Dons PPE personal protective equipment including rubber boots and gloves, a respirator and goggles, and a white Tyvek suit
• Sets up containment barriers to isolate the contaminated area of the structure using 6-mil thick polyethylene rolls
• Painters tape and tension poles to erect the barriers
• Prepare a staging area to limit the movement of equipment
• HEPA filtered air scrubbers to remove particulates from the air
• Double bags any debris 
• Follow OSHA standards according to the service
• Uses EPA approved products for cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting

Some contaminants may not be apparent such as asbestos used in building construction or lead paint still on the walls. Others like a sewer backup are very apparent and certainly less pleasant. We try to make it, "Like it never even happened."

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.
