To many, a biohazard cleanup sounds like ordinary cleaning. The truth is that they are two very different services. Standard maid services are ill-equipped to handle such incidents. A biohazard cleanup refers to the cleaning, removal, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens arising from crime scenes such as death, trauma, accident, and infectious outbreak. Because of the high exposure risk to blood-borne pathogens and other bacteria and viruses, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper equipment, training, specialty cleaners and disinfectants, and certifications. Furthermore, biohazardous waste protocols including the packaging and disposal methods must be in place. New Start Biorecovery is the only company is south central Texas with biohazard cleanup technicians certified by The American Biorecovery Association, the governing body overseeing the ethics, education, and technical expertise of our industry. We possess and maintain the highest level of certifications obtainable in the industry. Beware of other biohazard cleanup companies that only have blood-borne certifications. That certification is the lowest form of certification allowable to perform this type of work. As a result, there are many so called “mop & bucket” companies out there that are also improperly insured.
