Biohazard Cleaning Prices - How Much Does it Cost?
The aftermath of an emergency or crisis can be overwhelming to a point where everyone runs for cover. But when it’s the property you’re responsible for, at some point you must return to the site and look over the damage.
In some special cases, biohazard cleanup service is necessary. So when putting your recovery plan together, biohazard cleaning prices are included in your expenses. Recovery is a big job, but SERVPRO of North Irving is here to help you through the entire process.
When is Biohazard Cleanup Necessary?
For the safety of everyone involved, the cleanup of a biohazardous site should be handled by trained professionals. In these following scenarios that involve health hazards, professional services should be involved.
Crime Scene Cleanup
Crimes happen so unexpectedly. Whether it’s a space destroyed by vandals or a bloody scene where a murder has happened, being the witness to the scene can be traumatic.
SERVPRO of North Irving has ample experience with crime scene cleanup in Dallas. Property owners rely on us to thoroughly sanitize the area of any human remains or substances left behind by law enforcement personnel.
In extreme situations when a SWAT team deploys teargas, our specialized services will entirely remove the remaining substance.
We know these situations are of a very sensitive nature, so we ensure that any death cleanup procedures are handled respectfully and with dignity. We may take additional measures to protect your privacy such as using unmarked vehicles.
Unattended Death Cleanup
Unfortunately, people will sometimes die with no one knowing about it for days. A body in decay creates biohazards and sometimes blood soaks deep into the floor.
In the event of an unattended death scene, professional cleaning is necessary in order to clean up any and all pathogens left behind.
We at SERVPRO of North Irving understand the sensitive nature of these circumstances (especially with suicide clean up). Taking care of an unattended death occurrence will be handled with compassion and discretion.
Public health threats don’t happen every day, but it’s important to be proactive to stop diseases from spreading when they arrive. We’ve dealt with cases of infectious bacteria like MRSA and C Diff.
Not all cleaning services put themselves in harm’s way, but SERVPRO does. We are committed to doing our part to maintain public health. For example, we have been addressing the thread of the newly discovered Coronavirus.
Because these nasty organisms can be tough to kill, it’s of vital importance to take measures that will effectively sterilize the affected area. We sanitize hard surfaces, restore carpets, treat clothing/textiles and conduct tests to ensure that the threat is completely removed.
Rats do whatever it takes to survive and often this is done at your expense. Along with causing severe structural damage, they also leave a significant amount of biological waste in their wake.
These pests may carry any one of 35 diseases. In severe cases of infestation and for your peace of mind that rodent filth is completely eliminated, SERVPRO of North Irving will thoroughly clean the affected area to make it safe again. It will be as though those pests were never even there.
Wastewater inside of a home or commercial property is indeed a nightmare. This situation can reach a point where it’s beyond your control.
Category 3 contaminated water (a.k.a. “blackwater”) should be regarded as an extremely dangerous health hazard. Even if it’s a minor backup, it’s important to take immediate action because if left untreated, this situation can quickly escalate to category 3.
SERVPRO of North Irving sanitizes all items touched by the water such as clothing and textiles. We use an EPA Registered Biological Contamination Disinfectant (before and after cleaning), restore the carpeting, and perform ATP testing.
How Much Does Biohazard Cleanup Cost?
Doing a proper job of removing threats to your health means using industrial-grade biohazard cleanup supplies. You won’t find them on the shelf at the supermarket.
Biohazard cleanup procedures involve professional staff who have been through extensive training to do a complete and thorough job.
Depending on what factors are involved, SERVPRO of North Irving biohazard cleanup cost typically ranges between $899-$10,000.
The goal of our highly-skilled staff is to ensure that the site is 100% safe upon job completion. Because of the complicated nature of biohazard scenarios, we may need several people and many manhours to get it done.
When providing the estimate, we can go over the details of the expected labor requirements.
Our thorough process includes the use of industry-standard methods that include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Biohazard waste bags and containers (human blood requires special containers)
- Esporta Wash System
- ATP testing supplies
- EPA contamination disinfectant
- Carpet cleaning or replacement
- Protective gear
- HEPA air scrubbing
- ULV fogging
Size of Affected Area
An affected site can range in size from a small bedroom used to coalesce from an illness to an entire building flooded with blackwater. So the bigger the area, the more staff, manhours, and supplies are needed to do a complete job.
When providing an estimate, we can explain how extensive the recovery is expected to be in regard to the square footage.
In our experience, pretty much every job is different. The costs are determined by the nature of the situation, the extent of the affected area, and the severity of the damage.
Basic biohazard cleanup costs around $899. Full restoral of a site will often include odor removal with multi-filter air scrubbing and fogging. With this added, services start at $1,299.
In the case of death, costs can range from $1,500 to $10,000. For example, unattended death cleanup costs are more expensive if floor replacement or incineration is needed.
When the unthinkable happens, you may be faced with a big and expensive job, but don’t dismay. If you have insurance, call your provider to find out how much cost the policy will cover. SERVPRO of North Irving is prepared to offer help with our financing option.
It’s important that you call us right away, especially if it’s a sewage issue. We’ll assess the entirety of the damage and go over the estimate with you. We’re here to help you through these emergencies, we’ll answer any questions you have, and get your property back to normal as soon as possible.
