Life is unpredictable, and sometimes situations can happen at our homes or businesses that are out of our control. For example, a sewage leak at your storefront can happen in the middle of the night and not be discovered until morning, or a tragic accident happens at home and your kitchen has blood or other bodily fluids all over the floor. 

While these types of situations are emotionally impactful, they can also be dangerous or hazardous to your health. That’s where our biohazard team comes into play. We are trained to handle the cleanup and sanitization of many different hazardous substances. 

The Different Situations We Are Trained In  

Sometimes biohazard situations are obvious if there is blood involved or something clearly dangerous like a sewage leak. However, there are also other situations that should always be cleaned up by professionals. 

Harmful chemical leaks, hoarding scenes, tear gas cleanup, and excess animal waste or animal remains are all situations that need to be addressed quickly and with a trained hand. 

Our team understands that the longer these substances linger on your property, the more dangerous they can become. We will help transform your space back into its clean and safe living or working area in no time at all. We will contain the affected area, clean, sanitize and address any lingering odor issues. We can also handle any repairs if the situation leads to property damage. 

Crime Scene Assistance 

When the unexpected happens at your home or business and it becomes the unfortunate victim of a crime scene, our team will be there to walk you through the process. We understand how overwhelming and sensitive these types of situations can be, and we are here to help you navigate the uncertainty of what comes next. 

Many times, crime scenes or accident scenes have blood or other hazardous contaminants present, so we use our specialized equipment to clean and sanitize the entire area. We can also help contain the residuals leftover from a crime scene, and we are able to help clean up fingerprint powder, pepper spray residue and fire extinguisher residue. 

When we are through, you would never know that a traumatic or sensitive situation occurred at your residence.

Let us handle any hazardous substances on your property. Contact SERVPRO of North Clay County/Oakleaf/North Middleburg today.
