SERVPRO Can Clean and Sanitize Blood Spills in Montgomery Properties

Biohazardous Clean Ups By SERVPRO Means Good Results

A biohazard spill often involves some type of bodily fluid. In private homes, this usually means a blood spill. There are certain risks when it comes to restoring a home after an incident with blood happens, and they need to seriously considered before cleanup efforts begin.
Residents should not attempt to clean up a blood spill in their Montgomery home. Even without the emotional component, there is the risk of disease and other pathogens in even a small amount of blood. SERVPRO understands both elements and how to deal with them when developing a restoration plan.
Cleaning and removing blood and blood stains require chemical cleaners designed to neutralize the pathogens in them. Infectious diseases found in blood spills and splatters include Hepatitis A, B, and C, as well as HIV and many others. To ensure we do this properly, our technicians utilize anti-bacterial cleaners we keep on-hand.
The anti-bacterial cleaners are necessary since blood does not respond to conventional cleaners like dirt or soot. Conventional agents do not always clean blood completely and even when they do, there is often, a stain remaining at the spill point. Leaving a visible mark is not something we accept; if we cannot remove the entire mark, our technicians can repaint the affected area or remove the stained structural property (i.e. wall board and trim) and replace it.
We realize that there is a story behind each spill and do everything we can to respect a resident’s privacy. Our team members are instructed to never speak to the neighbors or the local newspapers and TV stations, and any questions we ask are unique to the restoration process. If we do not know the answer, then we cannot accidentally say something to the wrong person. We are empathetic and fully appreciate the need for discretion. We are here to help.
Restoring your home after any disaster is difficult. Cleaning up a blood spill is one of the more difficult tasks we face, but SERVPRO of Montgomery is here to help. We want to return your home to its original state so that you can move forward when the time is right for you. Call us today at (334) 273-0992 to schedule an inspection and get started.
