Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

The ability to remove Biohazard substances does require licensing and extensive training. These substances could be harmful to the community if not disposed of properly. The common biohazard substances we encounter are animal carcasses, raw sewage, human remains, bloodborne pathogens, and other toxic wastes. Some of these issues may be the result of a personal tragedy, so we promise to act with both discretion and passion throughout service.

The proper disposal of Biohazard substances is often completed at a separate facility. Federal laws from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) often demand individual bagging or demolition of substances. Our biohazard technicians are well-versed in the proper disposal of substances like these and can take them with us after service is complete.

Please refer to our Biohazard Emergency Tips - Until Help Arrives Guide and follow these tips to protect yourself and your property.

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.

Bloodborne Pathogens

We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO of The New Orleans Westbank Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs

SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as "meth" are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. We follow federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
