What to look for in a Biohazard Cleanup Company

If you find yourself in need of a biohazard cleaning company, it’s important to know what to look for when deciding which provider to hire.


The problem is that many people have never even heard of such a service—until the day they need one following an unattended death, suicide or homicide cleanup, to handle a hoarding situation, or other event.


When you consider that the quality of the work could impact the health of others who spend time in the home or business, it’s easy to understand why selecting a fully qualified company is a must.


Here are few things to look for:


Licenses and Certifications
Crime scene and trauma cleanup is much different than normal janitorial services.  You will want to ask your potential cleaners to tell you about their credentials and length of experience in the industry. Companies that perform such services must comply with OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen Standard and the best companies will have completed relevant training in order to provide thorough and effective services.


Bio-One Raleigh employees receive in-depth and ongoing training, and we hold full licensing in biohazard services. Bio-One Raleigh owner Rick Jacobs is Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) certified.


Biohazard cleanup is not the kind of job you want to trust to a novice. Instead, find a provider with significant experience who will be able to handle any type of cleanup situation.


Our technicians have the experience and training they need to get the job done right.


Ability to Handle Paperwork

There is typically a significant amount of paperwork involved during the biohazard cleanup process. Your cleaners should be able to handle most of this paperwork on your behalf. For example, you will want to ask your cleaners whether they can work with your insurance company to file a cleanup claim. Your cleaners should also be able to provide you with documentation that proves that the biohazard materials have been properly and safely eliminated.


Bio-One Raleigh will provide you with detailed paperwork outlining every step of the removal and remediation. We are able to assist in checking your insurance coverage and opening the claim, as well as continue the follow-up throughout the process. With the proper coverage, they may be no out-of-pocket expenses to you.
