Business owners can expect a plethora of emergencies to break out on a normal workday, but a biohazard situation can be one of the most unexpected. Taking proper measures to ensure everyone is safe when biological or chemical contaminants infest your property should be your first priority. 

You’ll need to know how to handle the situation until we arrive on the scene to clean up the mess. 

When conditions are severe enough, they should not be taken lightly, and you definitely shouldn’t try to clean up contamination on your own. Exposure to elements like a sewage spill or a chemical spill can be extremely hazardous for your health and the health of the employees in your business. 

Here are some things you can do before our team arrives to clean up the mess: 

Keep away from the impacted areas. Whether you’re dealing with the aftermath of a crime scene, a sewage spill or animal waste, it’s important to keep out of affected areas. Once a biohazardous emergency is reported, you should inform your team and instruct them to safely exit the building. 

If personnel are still in the building, ensure that they are evacuated to a safer area away from any contamination. You should make sure to practice an emergency response plan, no matter the scenario, to ensure your entire team knows what to do and where to go during emergencies like this. 

Leave contaminated items in place. You should treat all spills and bodily fluids as if they are contaminated and leave any affected items in place. While you might rush to try and solve the situation at hand by cleaning or moving any items, you should leave them to the professionals to protect the health of you and your personnel. 

This will allow safety experts to determine if these items are still safe to use and if they can be salvaged. 

Report it to professionals. In certain situations, like a crime scene, it’s essential to contact the authorities before attempting to clean up. After the police have finished processing a crime or accident scene, this is when our team can arrive to start the cleanup process. 

We have years of experience cleaning up contaminated buildings with protective equipment, advanced technologies and training in scenarios like this.

We can be on the scene as soon as you are ready to remove any contaminants or sewage and deodorize or sanitize your entire commercial property. Since every biohazard scenario is completely unique, we take the time to inspect every inch of damage and come up with a restoration plan specific to your commercial emergency.

We’re halfway through 2021 and areas across the country, including Atlanta, are finally starting to experience major turnarounds. That brings the hope of a return to a more normal life.

More customers are now choosing to return to in-person shopping, and as they do, they bring with them new expectations. Armed with a better understanding of how fragile our health can be, customers now want the businesses they patronize to prioritize their health and wellness.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned can help you do that.

The Basics of Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned can help to give you, your employees and your customers peace of mind by taking the worries of sanitization and cleaning out of the equation.

There are many companies you can hire to simply clean your business. But the work we do goes well beyond basic cleaning. Our Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program uses advanced biohazard techniques and technologies.

Let’s consider the three C’s of a Certified: SERVPRO Clean:

  1. Consult - Since SERVPRO of South Atlanta is locally owned and operated, it means we will already be in tune with the intricacies and needs of the area. We put that knowledge to use, and we also meet with you to discuss your business’ specific needs. This will include details about the work you do, your office or retail space and the people who use the facility.
  2. Clean - Once you’re ready, we have technicians on hand 24⁄7 that specialize in this type of cleaning. They come out with proprietary, hospital-grade cleaning solutions you won’t find anywhere else. Using these types of products makes sure that your company is adhering to (or exceeding) the CDC COVID-19 standards. And they provide protection for much more than simply COVID-19; the cleaning technology also clears the space of other viruses and bacteria.
  3. Certify - Once our technicians have completed the cleaning process, you then get to proudly display the Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned shield in your business window. This shield proves to consumers that you have gone to great lengths to protect everyone inside. You’ll also receive a digital emblem to place on your website and any of your social media profiles.
