Did you know that biohazards are often present in cars and other vehicles? A vehicle becomes contaminated with a biohazard anytime bodily fluids are emitted into the vehicle. This is common in the case of car accidents, suicides, homicides, medical emergencies, and unattended deaths. It is particularly challenging to eradicate biohazards from a vehicle because of an abundance of porous materials inside of the car, as well as lots of nooks and crannies for fluids to ‘hide.’ For this and other reasons, you should hire a professional to handle vehicle biohazard sanitation. This ensures the safety of future vehicle occupants.
Biohazard affected vehicles are often sold at auction. The car is in excellent condition other than the blood or tissue that is left inside. This could be an incredible opportunity to buy a car cheaply, have a professional team work on it to sanitize the interior, and then you are left with a reliable vehicle.
But why not clean up the car yourself? There are many reasons, but they all lead to the same point: it’s dangerous to clean up biohazards on your own. To properly clean and sanitize a biohazard, you must have training. You must know what chemicals to use to sanitize the interior of the car and how to safely handle the chemicals. It’s not a matter of a quick vacuum and a drive through a carwash. Cleaning up a biohazard is serious business. The biohazard must be contained, so it doesn’t spread or infect the person who is sanitizing the car. That’s why our technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and use engineering controls to protect themselves. Then the proper cleaning and sanitizing agents must be utilized. These chemicals can be dangerous in their own right.
Because of the high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens and other biohazards, you should hire a professional company that has trained technicians with the proper equipment. We are proud to serve the people of Alabama, and we hope you call on us for all of your vehicle biohazard sanitation needs.
