Types of biohazard

4/30/2021 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Novi/Commerce South is trained and experienced in biohazard cleanup.  We have listed below the different types of biohazard that we offer cleaning and disposal services:

  • Human bodily fluids

Including blood, saliva, amniotic fluid, and more — bodily fluids can transmit diseases

  • Medical waste

This includes tissue samples, laboratory cultures, and byproducts from autopsies and surgeries

  • Animal carcasses and droppings

Droppings may contain bacteria and viruses that become airborne, and carcasses attract disease-carrying pests such as flies and rodents

  • Mold and fungi

Spores can become airborne and cause respiratory, neurological, and other illnesses

  • Viruses and bacteria

Some viruses and bacteria can survive outside of hosts and pose a threat to anyone entering the environment

Examples of biohazard cleanup situations:

  • Human deaths, including homicide, suicide, and unattended death (blood and bodily fluid cleanup)
  • Hoarding
  • Animal infestation (rodent feces, dead carcasses)
  • Localized disease outbreaks 
  • Criminal activity/crime scene cleanup 
  • Mold or fungus infestations
  • Industrial and workplace accidents 
  • Odor removal
  • Vehicle cleaning and decontamination
  • Sewage and black water cleanup
