You may wonder if your specific situation calls for biohazard remediation. With both biological and chemical contaminants that might grace the scene, it’s important to know when the professionals need to be contacted. Biohazard cleanup is necessary in the following instances:
- After a crime scene has been cleared for you to enter
- Following a suicide or accidental death
- To clean up a large amount of blood
- When going through a hoarder’s house
- If animal remains or feces are present on the property
- After a meth lab has been discovered
- Following a sewage backup
If these infectious materials are not handled with the utmost care and the proper equipment, danger could result. At Vines, we have been trained to ensure no further contamination will take place.
Disaster could strike at any given moment and the aftermath could pose a real danger to you and your family. In the event of a catastrophic storm, power could be lost and water supplies can be compromised.

Contaminated Water Types
There are various types of contaminated water, some more severe than others. It is important to know how to remediate these contaminations in order to avoid any health issues. Here is a look at the following types of water contamination which can be classified as a biohazard.
- Broken supply line – A water supply line that ruptures does not immediately leak contaminated water, but could become exposed to contaminants and prove harmful.
- Overflows – When a toilet or washing machine overflows, it can produce gray water. If ingested, this type of water can induce illness and a high level of discomfort.
- Backed up sewer – When an outside water source enters a home from outside of a toilet trap, it has the potential to be extremely dangerous. Often called black water, this contamination results from flooding streams and rivers.
Containment and Cleanup
There are different reasons for biohazards infiltrating a home. This could also be due to criminal conduct or vandalism. Whatever the cause, there is a process that needs to follow. That begins with disinfecting the area and then sanitizing it. That is followed by removal and there are specific rules to follow through each step. Vines Plumbing has technicians that are trained in this area and will ensure there is no biohazard left on your premises.
Spoiled food, animal carcasses and even common hoarding can lead to the development of a biohazard. Once a biohazard is detected, it is best to call the pros at Vines Plumbing and let us use our skills, equipment and procedures to make the area safe again.
