How BioteamAZ Approaches Biohazard Cleanup in Tucson

When it comes to biohazard remediation, safety must always come first. Our seasoned technicians have expertise cleaning up diverse biohazards like blood, bodily fluids, or human waste. Whatever the circumstances, we prioritize responding quickly and completely, putting your health front and center. Your wellbeing drives our approach to delivering prompt, thorough biohazard cleanup across Tucson.

  • Inspection & Safety – We conduct a comprehensive inspection of the area to determine the full scope of work while ensuring the area is secure and accessible by our technicians. We use appropriate PPE, such as hazardous material suits, gloves, and respirators, depending on the following OSHA guidelines on a safe work environment as well as all directions according to the Safety Data Sheets on our EPA approved chemicals.

  • Disinfection & Cleanup – All impacted areas are disinfected, all non-porous items are disinfected and moved to a clean and secure location nearby. Porous items that have been impacted by blood or fluids will need to be properly removed and destroyed at a biohazardous waste treatment plant. Single-use PPE tools are disposed of following ADEQ biohazardous waste regulations.

  • Waste Disposal – Any tools or PPE that can be disinfected will be treated on scene and properly stored. All biohazardous waste and other trash will be secured in our licensed transportation vehicles and removed from the premises. We then remove any remaining barriers or safety measures and turn the area back over to the appropriate parties.

Health, safety, and peace of mind are our priorities, and our team will do everything we can to deliver that to you.

How BioteamAZ Can Help You

Traumatic incidents are hard enough to deal with without extra worries over cleanup and insurance, so our Tucson crew conducts complete pre- and post-cleaning assessments, gathers important documents, and supports you through the whole insurance claims process to lift those burdens.

Bacteria & Germ Testing

On an average day, if a person sees something that looks clean, they assume it is clean. However, we know that a visual inspection is only the beginning. Our technicians at BioteamAZ perform ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) tests at the beginning and end of our cleanup service. The ATP test allows us to measure the presence of actively growing microorganisms (bacteria). This helps us assess the impact of viable bacteria and organic debris on the property.

Personal Property List

Any porous or semi-porous items that have come into contact with bodily fluids will need to be properly treated and, most of the time, will need to be disposed of at an approved biohazardous waste treatment facility. This document is supported by photographs to show proof of loss of the items. This is especially important if you need to show proof of loss of personal property to your insurance company.

Document Retrieval

Paper is highly porous. If it has been directly impacted with blood or other potentially infectious materials, it must be transported to a medical waste facility for destruction. If we discover that any important documents have been damaged, the senior technician will discuss with you the procedures that need to be taken in order to salvage as much information from the documents as possible.

Post-Remediation Evaluation

We hold ourselves to the highest standards and upon request will provide a post-remediation certification to you, property management, or your insurance company.  We want to provide you with peace of mind that the property is safe to return to once we have completed our final evaluation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any professional dealing with blood will be properly trained and will utilize the necessary PPE to keep themselves safe from bloodborne pathogens and other unknown dangers. Hiring a professional will provide you with peace of mind that the area has been properly treated and disinfected.

All blood spills should be treated as though there are bloodborne pathogens present. This is not to judge or embarrass the person who was bleeding. This is solely for the safety of anyone involved in the clean-up process. Additionally, treating the scene for the worst possible pathogens will ensure that the area is safe again regardless of the health status of the person who lost their blood. In that way, we can provide you with peace of mind without having to discuss anyone’s medical history.

As a general rule, we do not clean and return porous items that have been impacted by blood. Some clothing or other fabric-based items may be able to be treated and washed, but upholstered items, carpeting, and other semi-porous items will require removal. These items will need to be removed and transported to an approved biohazardous waste treatment facility to be destroyed. Our goal is to ensure we have cleaned and disinfected to our stringent standards thereby returning your home or property to a safe and habitable state.

In our experience, this type of service is usually not covered by insurance, but it is still worth contacting your insurance provider to find out for sure. In instances where the cleanup is related to a medical issue, we may be able to help you get approved to process an insurance claim.

Each cleanup is different, so we will need more information to provide you with a scope of work. The length of time the fluids or waste have been sitting will play a factor in the treatment options. The type of flooring is equally important – engineered wood, carpet, and the grout between tiles are all porous materials meaning that they can quickly absorb liquids. If the fluids have been allowed to seep into the flooring or further to the subfloor, we will need to remove the flooring and dispose of it accordingly. It is our policy to ensure we have properly treated and disinfected the impacted areas, and in certain cases we can only do that by removing the flooring.

Due to the nature of the work, our team will be following all NIOSH and OSHA guidelines for a safe work environment, which includes extensive PPE to keep ourselves safe. As such, we would ask that you are not in the area while we are performing our services. Occasionally we will need to work for longer than the first day. In these instances, we will provide you with lodging accommodations at no cost to you.
