Trauma and Clean Up
We can do Trauma cleaning as well
If you are in the hospitality business then you know that fatalities happen in the facility. Maybe more than you would like.
Under the Federal Government and Department of Labor, OSHA has created regulations concerning the handling of items or objects that may have been contaminated with blood and/or bodily fluids. These regulations are in place to not only protect the general public but also, the professionals doing the cleaning. Potential pathogens in bodily fluids include bacteria, fungi, viruses, and prions. It is extremely important that the standards are abided to not only to prevent the spread of possible disease but also to avoid hefty fines from the Environmental Protection Agency EPA.
It is important to note that cleaning cannot and will not begin at a trauma site until police actions are completed and the site is released by police. We stress the importance of performing quality cleaning services to prevent cross contamination. For this reason we clean the ceiling down to the floor. Our techs will be in special protective gear and use EPA certified products to clean the affected areas.
Time is of the essence when dealing with cleaning a trauma site because the longer the pathogen settles the harder it is to clean the surface and eliminate contaminates. Because we have experience in this field our team already knows the process and what to do – so you can be rest assured the cleanup will be done right and under Federal standards.

Sewage and Commercial Facilities
Bio hazard removal in commercial building in Boston, MA
Sewer back ups are not only common in residential facilities! They also happen in business facilities!
One of the most common causes of sewer backups in business facilities is the flushing of items down the toilet. Most businesses have posts in bathroom stalls asking that people not flush items other than toilet paper. Other causes of sewer back up can be worn out piping when the pipes are old it is easier to be damaged. Beware of tree roots as they can enter the pipes or even crush the pipes and cause damage.
In the picture we responded to sewage back up in a commercial facility due to a sewer line clog. Our customer had posts in their backroom stalls and other forms of non toilet paper waste removal products. Unfortunately, someone flushed something down the toilet which clogged their system and resulted in the flooding of their basement with biohazard material. Due to our previous relationship with this business, they knew exactly who to call - SERVPRO Mattapan & Hyde Park to help remediate the situation.
