Professional Biohazard Remediation

When a hazardous material spills, your first instinct may be to clean it up as soon as possible, so the area is safe. Some hazardous materials should only be cleaned by professionals, but it can be hard to determine when you can clean something yourself or when you need to call in a professional biohazard team for help.

If the spill contains a biological or chemical contaminant that can pose a serious health consequence due to exposure, then it is best to leave the cleanup to be done by professionals when it includes:

  • Animal Infestation
  • Hoarding
  • Sewer backup
  • Toxic chemical spills
  • Black Mold

Letting a biohazard team handle these types of cleanups will ensure that the hazard is removed and disposed of safely and legally and that the area is cleaned properly and safe for everyone to live in or be around. If you are concerned about a biohazard in your area contact a professional team like SERVPRO of Henderson/Boulder City for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
