Over the last 25 years, our way of life has changed a lot. Until recently, most people were not aware of the idea that there were “biohazards” – biological organisms that can adversely affect your heath. Today, the term is well-known, although it is still not all that well understood and home and business owners are ignorant of what a biohazard really is and how we should deal with them.

Many people think that biohazards are really only an issue in laboratories and hospital rooms and while it is true that those places are where they are usually found, most such establishments have strict policies in place for dealing with hazardous materials. There may be more potential hazards but the average visitor will never encounter them.

Emergency Biohazard Cleanup & Restoration Services in Surprise

PHOTO BY ADRIEN LAMARRE TAKEN IN PANAMA 93Unfortunately, controlled environments are not the only place where there is a risk of biological hazards in Surprise, Az. Any Surprise, Arizona property – even a small office or a home – can face biohazards. Sometimes, these can be the byproduct or a criminal offense, or a natural disaster. Sometimes they are a remnant of bad building practices –such as the asbestos that was being used in older buildings, before it was known that this insulating material was dangerous. Sewage and mold can also be incredibly dangerous, especially if not gotten rid of quickly. Hazards, biological or general health, should be disposed of promptly and safely by trained professionals.

It is not a good idea for an untrained person to attempt to deal with biohazards. Rather, a trained team such as the people at Action 1 Restoration of Surprise should be brought in to handle the issue so that no-one’s health is put at risk.

 

Asbestos Cleanup & Removal

While asbestos is not technically a biohazard, it is very dangerous and must be disposed of quickly in any Surprise Az commercial building or home. If you have asbestos in your home or office it is important that you work to get rid of it as soon as possible, because it is one of the most hazardous materials that has ever been commonly used in construction. No untrained person should ever handle asbestos. As soon as the material is moved there is the risk of it shedding potentially cancer-causing fibers. For this reason, only professionals trained in the disposal of this substance should ever work on it.

Blue_asbestos_wikipediaIt is essential that everyone working with or near asbestos wears the proper protective equipment and that the area being worked on is sealed and kept at a negative air pressure while the fibers are removed, using HEPA filtered cleaning tools. Once the asbestos is removed from the building it must then be taken off site and disposed of in accordance with government regulations. After this, your property will need restored or rebuilt with safer tiling, insulation or fire proofing that is asbestos free.

Learning that your property has asbestos in it can be an incredibly scary. For this reason, you should consult the experts as soon as you learn that there is an issue. A biohazard specialist such as Action 1 Restoration of Surprise will be able to eliminate any potential threats to your family, and give you peace of mind too.

 

Cleaning Up Crime Scenes in Surprise

In the unfortunate event of a property under your management becoming the scene of a crime, the last thing you will want to deal with is the clean-up. Depending on the severity of the crime, you could have to deal with blood or other bodily fluids, or the residue of tear gas or other hazards. Once the police have done everything they wish to do at the scene, and collected all of the evidence, you may be left to handle the clean-up. Depending on the type of damages in your Surprise home will determine how much cleaning, disinfecting and replacement will be needed.

The survivors and relatives are not the people who should have to deal with this situation. Not only are they going through an incredibly traumatic time, it is highly unlikely that they are trained in the clean-up process. Companies such as Action 1 Restoration of Surprise’s CTS Deacon team are experts in dealing with delicate cleanup situations.

The team of CTS Decon experts use federally-approved PPE when they visit your home or business to assess the hazard, and then they will remove all visible and reported hazardous material, as well as any soft furnishings that have been contaminated. After this preliminary work, they will carefully inspect the rest of the site to ensure that everything is properly decontaminated and correctly sanitized. Finally, they will run detailed tests to ensure that the site is thoroughly decontaminated and that there are not just no hazards, but no odors either.

Very few people ever expect to need crime scene cleanup or restoration services, but when it is necessary, it is good to know that Action 1 Restoration of Surprise is available, 24 hours a day, to help.

 

Drug Lab and Meth Lab Cleanup Services

When drugs are being made there is always the risk of things going wrong in a messy fashion, and even if things don’t go wrong, once the lab is discovered and shut down it must be cleaned up properly. Failure to dispose of the materials and ingredients used to make meth and other drugs can cause those potentially hazardous ingredients to be released into the atmosphere, where they can harm innocent people. The Action 1 Restoration of Surprise team has cleaned up and restored several homes that were running meth labs in them. You will want to make sure these homes are thoroughly cleaned and safe to live in after, especially if there are small children that are going to be in the home.

If you discover a drug lab in your neighborhood, the first thing that you should do is alert the authorities. With luck they will dispose of everything for you, but if they do not then you will need to enlist the help of some experts to get rid of the remaining tools and ingredients. This could be a lot more than you bargained for when you moved in to that new apartment!

The team of professionals at Action 1 of Surprise can handle the whole disposal process, including testing the lab to identify what it was used for, removing and incinerating all harmless materials, and decontaminating as much of the property as possible. Once everything has been handled, the final step will be to test the property again to ensure that every trace of toxins and biohazards has indeed been removed.

Only professionals can clean up drug and meth labs, so it is important that you hire a company that operates in compliance with strict governmental standards.

 

Sewage Cleanup & Mold Removal – Surprise, Az

flooding bathroomAlmost every homeowner will encounter mold in their bathroom or their pantry at least once. A small amount of mold, tackled promptly, is not a serious issue. However, a significant amount of mold growth in a home or business can be a serious biohazard. It is not a good idea to try to tackle large amounts of mold on your own because disturbing the spores could cause them to spread, or could lead to infections if they linger in the air and your guests or residents breath them in. Professional biohazard disposal companies will remove the infected material, clean up the surrounding area and restore it to its former glory.

Sewage is another serious issue. Sewage backups and overflows can be problematic, and can lead to line breaks and flooding. Sewage can contain pathogens, germs, bacteria and chemical hazards as well as sharps and other general hazards. Therefore, only professional remediation companies should attempt to work with sewage.

Whether you have a residential or a commercial property, it is important that your sewage issues are handled promptly, and that the cause is identified so that the issue does not reoccur. We can handle your biohazard remediation issues, and work with you to get your property back up to the standard it was in before the incident. Give us a call today to talk about your biohazard concerns and to get a quote for our restoration service.
