Yes, it is fun to watch The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and CSI. But, no one wants to actually have to be faced with dealing with a zombie apocalypse, taking apart a meth lab or cleaning up a murder scene. If the unthinkable happens—a bacterial outbreak or a biohazard accident—the disastrous situation needs to be dealt with and handled properly. Managing this requires special skill and equipment, handled by properly trained and certified cleaning and restoration technicians. A very specialized kind of deep cleaning is necessary to make certain that unwelcome bacteria and pollutants that could have an impact on health and performance are removed.
That’s where professional decontamination service professionals come in. They not only eliminate reminders of the hazardous event but also ensure that the area is truly clean and sanitized, and restore the property to a safe status for building occupants.
If you, as a building owner or property manager, are faced with a situation like this, find out if the company you’re contracting for cleanup and restoration follows strict trauma protocol and uses special equipment such as the Halosil Disinfection System — a fogger machine the size of a golf bag—to get the job done right. Halosil is a bacteria-killing disinfectant system that can stop the spread of infectious spores and viruses in homes and office buildings as well as buildings with vulnerable populations such as hospitals, daycare centers and assisted-living facilities. Sanosil kills some of the most dangerous pathogens and viruses known to man (it eradicates 99.9999 percent of bacteria) and the Halosil Fogger is the only one that is EPA-registered and approved.
AOA is one of the few companies in the country that uses Halosil machines and products. These are the same equipment and products recently deployed to Africa to treat the Ebola epidemic.
Ready for Biohazard Cleanups
AOA’s professional, certified technicians are specially trained to fully assess and clean up a wide variety of messy situations that present biohazard threats (from chemical spills to body fluids to animal hoarding) as well as mold and water damage. These all can endanger tenants’ health. We remove any sign of what occurred at the site and ensure that any biohazards are handled appropriately, according to EPA guidelines.
- Federal regulations require that all bodily fluids are handled as biohazards, so any blood or tissue at a crime scene is considered a potential source of infection. It’s not a job for the novice or faint of heart.
- The technician needs to look below the surface evidence. For instance, a one-inch bloodstain on the carpet can potentially mean there’s a much larger bloodstain on the floorboards underneath it.
- Removal and disposal of biohazardous waste is regulated and must be conducted in an appropriate manner with the necessary permits. Therefore, a safe response to a crime scene or trauma situation requires specialists.
- AOA Cleaning & Restoration is IICRC certified, and our technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the American BioRecovery Association (ABRA) and the Restoration Science Academy (RSA) in trauma scene remediation and microbial remediation.
- Our trauma technician is one of only a handful in the country to have trained with Kent Berg, a globally recognized consultant and expert witness in the field of crime and trauma scene bio-recovery.
