Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

What Makes Biohazards So Threatening to Your Riverhead Home? 

Many potential concerns could exist after biohazardous conditions begin in your Riverhead residence. From sewage backup to crime scene cleanup and trauma restoration, each of these bio-threats presents unique contaminants that could compromise the safety or health of those exposed. The example of sewage backup, for instance, can expose nearby individuals to the extensive list of bacteria and viruses found in fecal matter. Cleaning must be thorough and absolute, but also occur by those wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment. 

What Can You Do to Help When Biohazards Exist? 

As much as many Riverhead property owners want to have a hand in the restoration of their homes following disasters, the likelihood of cross-contamination and detrimental health effects should encourage owners to leave the recovery to our experienced professionals. We have considerable training and ongoing coursework to identify the most efficient cleaning approaches using our line of OSHA-approved and SERVPRO-developed disinfectants, phenolics, quaternary compounds, and other chemical agents. 

Not all biohazards require a family to relocate, but if it is advisable to leave the premises, you should do so as quickly as possible. You should not attempt to: 

  • Collect your valuables and belongings 
  • Clean up the damages on your own
  • Enter the damaged area for any reason

Trusting SERVPRO to Help

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.

Bloodborne Pathogens

We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO of The North Fork Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs

SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as "meth" are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. We follow federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
