Any incident involving blood and bodily fluids increases the risk of a biohazard. As such, good knowledge and expertise are a prerequisite in any biohazard cleanup work performed at King of Prussia, PA, homes since there are many complexities to be managed. Experts at ServiceMaster by ARTec utilize their experience to decide about disinfectants and cleaning techniques that would be suitable for a particular biohazardous situation.
In the following, we’ll look into the details our technicians analyze to perform biohazard cleanup correctly.
The Right Disinfectant
Disinfectants play a major role in biohazard cleanup work, and as such, our technicians pay special attention to the selection of disinfectants to ensure the best one is chosen.
Our technicians choose a disinfectant that will be capable of getting rid of different types of pathogens such as:
- Non-Enveloped Viruses: Norovirus, coronavirus, etc.
- Mycobacterium: Tuberculosis, etc.
- Fungi: Aspergillus niger, stachybotrys chartarum, etc.
- Gram Negative and Positive Bacteria: Escherichia coli, staphylococcus aureus, etc.
- Enveloped Viruses: HIV, Influenza A, etc.
The aim is to select disinfectants that are hospital grade since they are known to offer maximum efficiency. Additionally, our biohazard cleanup experts choose disinfectants that are effective against different types of bacteria and viruses even in the presence of blood.
The Right Protection
Technicians at ServiceMaster by ARTec know that different surfaces in your home need to be protected from soft-shell viruses, different pathogens, and microbes. To accomplish this task, our experts use anti-microbial protection provided by organosilane technology.
Biohazard cleanup experts know that a surface polymerized with organosilane technology is protected longer and more effectively from microbial invaders.
Organosilanes, when polymerized, function like electrically charged spears, creating a layer over the surface. If microbes come in contact with the surface, electrically charged spears puncture their membrane and render them completely ineffective. Moreover, these organosilanes maintain their strength for killing other microbes and keep the surface protected for a longer duration.
This isn’t a new technology, but it’s becoming more popular because it’s mechanical protection from microbes rather than chemical protection, and antimicrobials have been losing effectiveness recently as microbes adapt and evolve.
The Right Cleaning Products
Sanitization or disinfection? Which is a better option? Having the required training and experience, our experts understand the differences between the two and know that disinfection proves to be more effective compared to sanitization in biohazard cleanup work. This is because sanitizers kill pathogens, but they are not able to achieve complete disinfection.
