How We Go About The Decontamination Process
Our priority, in all the work we do, is the health and safety of our clients and their loved ones, employees, and all other individuals in the vicinity. At Diablo Crime Scene Cleaners we meet all EPA standards for trauma scene and biohazard cleanup and employ a rigorous, scientific procedure that guarantees the total removal of all contaminates to restore the property to a safe, habitable state.
Step One: Response
The faster you respond to hazardous materials or biological cleanup, the better and easier the remediation process will be. While police, firefighters, or investigators may be first on scene, it is not their responsibility to arrange the cleaning of the affected areas or restore the property to a healthy or inhabitable condition. That obligation falls to the owner of the property or the property manager.
If you are responsible for a biohazard site, it is important to move quickly and call Diablo Crime Scene Cleaners. Our team is available for fast response even on nights or weekends, and the sooner you call and have us react, the better.
Step Two: Control and Containment
Following industry standard procedures, our technicians will establish three distinct areas. The first area, the “contaminated area”, is where the remediation process will focus and will enclose all exposed surfaces and materials. Beyond it a “decontamination area” is established for our team to put on protective equipment and fill disposal containers, with a third “clean area” for hygienic storage of tools, equipment, and chemical agents.
Our work proceeds with two bioremediation experts working closely together, allowing us to complete the work more quickly without sacrificing the exactness and attention to detail so critical to the work at hand. And, regardless of the specifics of the situation, our team employs a full complement of safety material and takes precautions against exposure to infectious agents.
Step Three: Sanitization & Disposal
The contaminated area is thoroughly cleaned and all exposed surfaces clearly identified. Carpet, upholstery, and other personal property that cannot be properly decontaminated is removed and securely disposed of. To assist in this step, Diablo Crime Scene Cleaners maintains a close professional relationship with Biologic Environmental Services & Waste Solutions, providing our clients safe, secure, and environmentally friendly biohazard disposal service.
Step Four: Deodorizing
Trauma and decomposition can leave a powerful and long-lasting odor that can be nearly impossible to remove using conventional means. Our technicians treat the area to remediate all biological matter, leaving the property once again fit for normal human habitation.
