Biohazards can occur inside your home and could cause serious illnesses. Many scenarios cause biohazards that need to be professionally removed from your property. Colorado Hazardous Environmental is going to discuss five common scenarios that are related to biohazards. These biohazards are dangerous and should never be removed without the proper equipment and licenses.

Sewage

Sewage is one of the more common biohazards that happen in homes. Sewage can happen inside and outside of your home. All sewage is hazardous, as it can contain viruses and bacteria, even if the water is clear. If you have a sewage leak, it is important to stay away from the area and call a hazardous removal company to remove and dispose of the sewage safely.

Rodents

While rodents are sometimes kept as pets, they can also be hazardous to your health. Rodents love to find shelter inside homes, especially basements, attics, and crawlspaces. Once inside your home, they will eat your food and contaminate areas with their feces and urine, which can carry diseases.

Crime/Suicide/Accident Scenes

No one is ever prepared for a crime, accident, or suicide to happen in their home or business, but this is, unfortunately, a daily occurrence. These scenes tend to have bodily fluids, tear gas, and other hazardous materials. If your property falls victim to any of the above, it is crucial to have professionals clean the area. Bodily fluids can contain diseases, while other items like tear gas can make you ill.

Chemicals

Dangerous chemicals may enter your property without you knowing. From drug labs to chemical spills, all chemicals are dangerous. Without the proper cleaning agents and equipment, your property can remain dangerous. Always contact a hazardous cleanup company for the safe removal of all types of chemicals.

Hoarding Scenes

Hoarding scenes can contain a lot of different biohazards at one time. From bodily fluids to mold and other chemicals, hoarding scenes are hazardous. Most hoarding scenes need a professional hazardous cleanup crew to come in and remove the hazards. Without the proper protection, equipment, and cleaning tools, hoarding scenes will remain unsafe.
