Dealing with blood can be very dangerous. If blood spills on a surface, it is necessary that the right cleanup procedure is followed to prevent coming in contact with harmful bloodborne pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens are deadly, so, please take safety precautions during Blood Cleanup.
What are Bloodborne pathogens?
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms found in the human body and are known to cause deadly diseases. Some examples of bloodborne pathogens are hepatitis C (HCV), human immunodeficiency (HIV) and hepatitis B (HBV). They can be transferred from one person to another through open wounds, needles, and other elements. It is very pertinent that your exposure to blood is limited so as to reduce risks during Blood Cleanup.
Yes, not all blood carries harmful pathogens, but there is no sure way of knowing whether or not the blood at a crime scene is contaminated unless expressly stated by the source. So, it is very important that you carefully avoid contact with blood at crime scenes as it is hard to determine how harmful it is.
In situations where a large quantity of blood is involved, such as crime scenes, accidents or suicides, please do not carry out Blood Cleanup by yourself or call a run of the mill clean-up service. Call a professional Blood Cleanup Company like us that offers Biohazard cleanup services. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Also, please note that other bodily fluids apart from blood carry bloodborne pathogens. Urine, human waste, semen and some other fluids are biohazards and can contain these infectious pathogens. Blood cleanup is important, but pathogen and biohazard cleanup is also very important.
It bears repeating that exposure to bloodborne pathogens could lead to you catching some deadly diseases, so, please call on professionals to cleanup accident or crime scenes.
