Orange County Biohazard Cleanup Narrative
The price I quote for your biohazard cleanup service is the price you pay. It means that I will return to the work site for additional cleaning if you find cause for such a return.
With over 15 years in the biohazard cleanup field serving Orange County, I bring additional skills, abilities, and knowledge to this type of blood cleanup
I have formally trained in bloodborne pathogen training, crime scene cleanup, carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, house inspection, floor inspection, and mold cleanup. Plus, I have 23 years experience training for the U.S. Army regular, reserve, and national guard. Of course, for the US Army, biological threats were chief concerns.
I make a point of alerting families and businesses to Orange County Sheriff-Coroner employees part in cronyism. Orange County Coroner investigators are the worse offenders of their public trust when it comes to referring families to their (the Orange County employees') select biohazard cleanup companies. With over 15 years of experience in Orange County, my wife and I have discerned that Orange County's Coroner employees have nearly eased out the last of the free enterprise biohazard cleanup companies. I believe my company may be the last free enterprise biohazard cleanup company in the entire state of California. These companies may belong to these employees' friends, family, or simply exist as businesses willing to pay a 10% kickback, referral fee.
This is not right, and it is unethical. Our government have no business brokering biohazard cleanup services for Orange County's tax payers. I spent years trying to alert the Sheriff and corner's department to this ongoing corruption, but it was a little use. As a result I continue to clean in any case, which led me to clean in 24 states, including California.
I've cleaned up and down the state of California from Siskiyou County to San Diego County. I've cleaned in the high deserts, low deserts, and other isolated places. I've cleaned without benefit of electricity and running water. In all, I've improved my skills, abilities, and knowledge in this type of blood cleanup work.
I do not wish to belabor the point. I wish only to alert Orange County's families and businesses to the corruption they face when they deal with Orange County corners employees. Not all Orange County employees are corrupt. I know because I worked for the County of Orange for 14 years.
California biohazard cleanup service twenty-four hours, seven days a week; my prices are fair and reasonable. .
I cleanup blood related to suicides, unattended deaths, and decomposition cleanup following's Orange County unattended deaths.
My other Orange County biohazard cleanup web page has additional information related to blood cleanup business and do it yourself tasks.
Produced as a result of human activities, we expect to encounter biohazardous waste on all Orange County's violent crime scenes, violent suicides, and unattended deaths with decomposition. Of course trauma cleanup includes the same. It could be infectious such as blood or other fluids in the body.
Biohazardous waste can also act as a carrier of infectious diseases from exposure. Exposure may take place by inhaling, swallowing, eye contact, injection, and open wounds.
Homicide, suicide, and unattended death scenes all carry a risk of biohazard exposure to biohazard cleanup technicians. They, you if doing the cleaning, must take great care around infectious wastes of other sorts too.
Once the dangers of biohazardous waste were identified, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) put forth certain regulations for the waste disposal, a biohazard cleanup practitioner's must read. Biohazardous Waste Disposal Regulations in the U.S. vary from state to state. The regulations have helped to establish penalties for mismanagement of the biohazardous waste and also established record keeping requirements. These apply to Orange County.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Resource Recovery Act. Many states have adopted this act to regulate the handling and disposal of biohazardous materials. These regulations apply to Orange County's population and serve to protect us. The EPA calls biohazardous waste as medical waste. Different states have different approaches to this terminology.
What all states recognize for certain involves infectious waste handled as medical waste or otherwise. Some types of medical waste require addition to a biohazard waste stream for burning, burial, or other form of destruction. Some types of medical waste become solid waste for solid waste disposal.
Orange County hazardous waste includes many chemotherapy drugs and formaldehyde. Medical activities or laboratory activities creating medical waste must track their waste from cradle to grave while keeping track of the regulations. I do not handle these in any way. Orange County residents and businesses need to contact a medical waste transporting company for disposal of biohazards. For hazardous materials, a hazardous material transporter may be contacted. For biohazard cleanup I recommend that residents and businesses call me for additional information.
Biohazard cleanup for homicide, suicide, and unattended deaths means blood and other potentially infectious material removal. I use Home Depot cleaning tools and chemicals. In this way my biohazard cleanup clients know where to find what I use if they have any questions. My goal is to return your residence or business to its prior biological condition.
Biohazard cleanup for 's homicide, suicide, and unattended death cleaning needs. I cover all of every day, every hour. Call for a telephone quote. If you live outside of Orange County, call anyway. Most often I can clean anywhere inBiohazard cleanup activities remove, alter, dilute, flush, and destroy biohazards. Blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) contain infectious waste. When wet, moist, or dried in flakes, blood we consider blood as biohazardous waste.
Biohazards come in many shapes, sizes, and species. We usually think of tuberculosis when thinking about airborne biohazards. We think about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) when thinking about bloodborne pathogens.In its narrowest usage, bloodborne pathogens create biohazards from wet, moist, and dry flaked human blood. Other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) also arise from incidents like homicide, suicide, and unattended deaths.
Suicide cleanup, for example, will often involve gross amounts of solid material since high caliber weapons used leave an extraordinary amount of debris, OPIM.
As a self employed, biohazard cleanup practitioner my experience over these last 16 years should give me more than enough experience. With my experience and low overhead I save my biohazard cleanup clients a good deal of money. Where others charge thousands of dollars, I charge hundreds,
So as terrible acts, events and situations arise, I'm ready to go to work helping Orange County's families and businesses as best that I can work.
A word on odors should follow, too. I cannot guarantee that all biohazard related odors will disappear overnight. Homicides, suicides, and unattended deaths do leave odors that permeate buildings. Paper, clothing, carpeting, carpet padding, and composite wood all open their pours to death scene odors. These I reduce if not remove; however, sometimes it does take a while for these odors to completely leave. Usually their absence indicates the end of biohazard cleanup tasks.
By opening windows and ventilating heavily, odors do go away. In fact, ventilating remains a must in biohazard cleanup work. Usually I use a fogger to reduce biohazard at biohazard cleanup's beginning. It helps to reduce odors as well. No other company will promise to deodorize all property either, at least not in affordable terms.
Biohazardous materials seldom catch our attention, but when massive blood loss occurs, biohazard cleanup should be at the tip of our tongues.
Inside the body viruses that cause illness and death can live for many years. HIV can go as long as 10 years before its affects become known as AIDS. HIV usually plays a big part of biohazard cleanup service sales.
Outside of the body it's almost anyone's guess how long bloodborne pathogens live; not for long in most cases. From seconds of existence following a traumatic injury in bright sunlight, to days, and even weeks in ideal laboratory conditions, viruses need a very special environment, our body's cells.
"Under ideal laboratory conditions HIV can remain infectious in dried blood and liquid blood for several weeks and HBV stays active for even longer." CDC Health and Safety Executive
What we need to add to this information is that healthy bodies fight off some bloodborne microorganisms under optimum conditions. The young, elderly, and sick have less defense against these bloodborne pathogens. For them a small inoculation of virus and bacteria could be fatal. Viruses reach inside our bodies through our orifices, nose, eyes, mouth, and so forth.
A viral vector is a virus that changes to alter foreign genetic material's cell. That's how they reproduce.
Insects like mosquitoes, flies, sand flies, lice, fleas, ticks and mites sometimes transmits these viruses. Many of these are known as hematophagous, which means they are bloodsuckers. They may suck blood out of other critters throughout their entire lives or through phases of their lives. As we might suspect, some of these vectors transmit bloodborne pathogens to human beings, which later become infectious.
Blood-borne diseases from vectors include malaria and filariasis. Different types of anthropod-borne-viruses (arboviruses) quietly slide their infectious mouth under their host skin where the suck the blood from their unsuspecting victim. Parasites carried by mosquitoes are usually located in the mosquito salivary glands.
In the case of Zika a virus, newly introduced to the North American continent, there's room for biohazard cleanup work as the disease spreads. Its victims may not know they've been infected; pregnant women may give birth to babies with birth defects. Zika virus was first recognized on the Yap Islands outbreak in 2007. Since then it's recognition in South and Central America shows that it's spreading. The United States government has been slow to act in slowing the progress of this vectorborne disease. Our nation has yet to take this type of biohazard cleanup seriously in a big way.
Sewage is not biohazardous waste. It is an infectious waste. As infectious waste it may enter the body by injection or orally in those cases where it does cause illness and disease. A sewage cleanup entails removing the offending matter which may constitute "blackwater" or "gray water.
Health concerns will include everything from a noxious odor inhibiting one's appetite to the dreaded cholera which kills many thousands of people every year. A cholera epidemic can move far and wide quickly from poor sanitation. As a result, sewage contamination creates a monumental health risk.
Some countries like Haiti have poor sanitation and as a result cholera as been known to frequent that land for too often. Because the country is a poor country and originated from a slave class that fought for its independence from colonial powers, it does not receive great support from its former bosses.
In this case our health plays a major role in protecting or failing to protect us from sickness and disease. In fact, as I write these lines there's a potential for a great cholera epidemic in Haiti, a poor, unfortunate country grown from slavery to independence.
Nonetheless, a cholera epidemic spread by poor sanitation and infectious materials create suffering for many thousands of people.
Biohazard cleanup and sewage cleanup may become combined in certain special situations. For example, following a homicide or suicide that results in the release of sewage from a sanitary sewer may lead to the combination of blood cleanup along with sewage cleanup. This is rare but it does happen. When it does happen we find an overflowing toilet before the incident or after the incident adds to the need for sewage cleanup along with a biohazard cleanup. Fortunately these are rare occurrences.
Biohazard cleanup means to remove biohazardous material by lifting, moving, pushing, pulling, extracting, and carrying the offending materials from a homicide scene, suicide scene, or unattended death scene. It means to repeatedly disinfect the area's work continues. As in the case of an unattended death with horrific odors contaminating an entire room or even entire home, biohazard cleanup may entail odor remediation work. Order remediation work may include everything from scrubbing and rinsing and then sealing walls, floors, and ceilings.
"No evidence indicates that bloodborne diseases have been transmitted from contact with raw or treated sewage. Many bloodborne pathogens, particularly bloodborne viruses, are not stable in the environment for long periods of time."
Prudence suggests that when there's lots of blood it's best to pour it down a sanitary sewer, meaning the sink or toilet. Sewage microorganism will destroy any bloodborne pathogens remaining in blood, if not already destroyed by early decontamination.
