Traumatic events often leave behind blood and other bodily fluids that can be hazardous to human health. There are also certain situations and conditions at home or work that may be hazardous to individuals without proper safety equipment. Below are 3 reasons you should call SERVPRO of Spring/Tomball if such an emergency were to occur:

  • Safety: Whether it’s blood, potentially harmful bacteria, or medical waste, there are a number of hazardous materials that need to be cleaned up to avoid the spread of disease, viruses, or toxins. In order to thoroughly clean up the mess without risking your safety, it’s important to enlist the support of a professional emergency cleaning service. 
  • Legal Concerns: Crime scenes, including car accidents and homicides, mandate special protocols to eliminate safety hazards as well as protect the integrity of the investigation. In the event of a legal matter, a reputable biohazard cleanup crew will have the training and experience necessary to comply with legal terms and complete the job effectively. When methamphetamine labs are discovered, they also need to be dealt with in compliance with governmental regulations. 
  • Sterilization: After the hazardous materials have been removed, the scene needs still to be rid of potentially harmful bacteria. Trained professionals will thoroughly sterilize the area to eliminate any potential health risks to the public.
