How much does this cost?
In regards to cost, most incidents are covered by the Insurance carrier. Every incident differs, it is very difficult to give an estimate over the telephone sight unseen. We would like to come to the premise and give an estimate but in some cases we can give a " rough" estimate over the phone. Many people are surprised how much bio hazard services can be. A Neary Biohazard Company does what we can to work with our clients as much as possible to keep these fees down. Since there may be a high probability of bodily fluids traveling below the surface, we would need to decontaminate, remove and lawfully dispose of all materials that may be effected.
How quickly will A Neary Biohazard Company respond?
Once the crime scene has been released by the medical examiner or police agency, and depending on the location, A Neary Biohazard Company will respond within hours to evaluate the scene and give you an estimate.
Will A Neary Biohazard Company completely restore my residence or business establishment?
In many situations, the carpet and flooring must be removed. Fewer situations may require baseboards and wallboard to be removed. In a bathroom or kitchen area, it may be necessary to disconnect sinks, toilets and bathtubs. In any situation, only necessary items will be removed in our effort to completely remove contaminated items. Our technicians are professionals and will remove items with great care and precision. Once items are removed, depending on our initial consultation, a sub-contractor may be brought in to replace the removed items.
Can’t I just use my regular cleaning or janitorial service to clean up blood or pathological waste?
Not unless your regular cleaning or janitorial service has been properly trained and equipped to handle bio-hazardous waste such as blood or body fluids; disposal of which is highly regulated.
Can I have an employee of my business clean the scene?
Federal Regulation 29CFR1910.1030 states that no employee can be placed in a position to be exposed to blood spills without first:
Receiving bloodborne pathogen (BBP) training
Having a written BBP exposure control plan
Having been provided personal protective equipment
Having been offered Hepatitis B vaccine and exposure evaluation and follow-up
Being provided with a method to remove and properly store the bio-hazardous waste in properly marked containers for disposal at an approved site
Only after these five steps have been met can an employee be required by his or her employer to clean a bio-hazardous/crime scene.
