Biohazard cleanup process for property owners
A body is usually found when a tenant fails to pay rent on time, flies are seen in a window, or odor is emanating from the front door or going into an adjoining unit. The property manager should then call the police to request a welfare check. When a deceased person is found by first responders, detectives will conduct an investigation before the coroner removes the body and places a coroner’s seal on the door.
This coroner’s seal is to protect the belongings of the person inside and prohibits entry to anyone until the next of kin can be contacted. Once the next of kin authorizes entry, the property manager can arrange for biohazard cleanup. If no next of kin can be located, the property manager can then ask for the coroner’s authorization to have us enter and clean the unit.
Once you call us to arrange for biohazard cleanup services, we’ll ask you several questions:
- Has the scene been released by the police investigators?
- Is there a coroner’s seal on the door? Has the next of kin been identified?
- Is the scene an apartment, common area, house, parking lot, outside, etc.?
- What is the incident type? (Suicide, crime, accident, unattended death)
- What type of instrument is involved if any? (gun, knife, rope, physical fight, overdose)
- How long has it been since the person died before they were found?
- Is there an odor? Are there flies?
- Who is the onsite contact when we arrive?
By collecting this information, we will know how many people and what equipment will be needed to complete the work and restore the property.
On-site biohazard cleanup
Once we arrive onsite in a plain white van, we will seal off the infected areas to prevent further cross-contamination. Donned in personal protective equipment (PPE), we then start remediating the biohazards layer by layer, cleaning and decontaminating as needed as far as the fluids have reached. Blood and body fluids find their way into areas you would not expect. For instance, a blood spill on carpet may have a much larger pool beneath on the subfloor. If the scope of work is bigger than initially expected, we will check in with the onsite contact before proceeding. As we clean, we carefully document all the damage to justify work done and for insurance documentation if needed.
While we work through the layers, we carefully clean and disinfect all hard surfaces. Any porous materials such as wood, paper, or fabric that cannot be saved, we carefully removed the infected areas, document, and dispose of it as medical waste. If there is any lingering odor, we conduct an industrial ozone treatment to remove it.
Once all areas are cleaned and decontaminated, we perform a detailed inspection to make sure all biohazards and contaminates are removed and the property is safe. We then give you an inventory of items removed and can file an insurance claim on your behalf if the scene is extensive.
