When Do You Need a Biohazard Cleanup?

There are times when you may need to call specialized services to keep your home in good condition. For example, a general contractor may not be able to help you deal with fire damage completely, so it’s best to trust a restoration contractor instead. One situation that calls for a specialist is when your home has been exposed to dangerous materials like black mold or other biohazards.

It’s not always easy to know when you’ll need a specialist. Keeping an eye out for certain types of problems can help you determine if your problem requires special attention. Here are a few situations our experts at Special Touch Restoration believe require professional biohazard cleanups.

Extreme Water Damage

Flood and water damage can cause outrageous amounts of problems in your home. To make matters worse, the moisture left behind after an initial cleanup can linger inside your walls and insulation, creating an environment for mold and mildew to grow and spread. If you suspect that your home has extensive water damage, your safest bet is to book a biohazard inspection to really see how big the problem is.

Sewage Problems

Sewage problems are difficult to miss. When the sewage in your home backs up, the first thing you’ll notice is the unbearable smell. Sewage can also expose you and your family to dangerous microbes and substances. This type of problem should only be handled by a professional. Once the cause is identified and fixed, the cleanup is best left to a biohazard service.

High-Tech Requirements

Certain technical equipment need an extremely sterile environment. For this reason, you will need to contact your local biohazard and restoration service to conduct an initial inspection and sweep of your property to ensure that it is 100% free of any pathogens or contaminants.
