What Is Needed For Blood Cleanup
When our team first arrives we will do a survey to understand the scope of the blood cleanup task. This provides us with information of just what protective gear that we will need, from gloves and masks to full gowns or more. If there are any sharp objects such as needles, razor blades, knives, and more, we will have a sharps container to have a location to place these.
Once our team is protected and the sharp objects are handled, it is time to start the cleaning with biohazard bags for other materials that will be disposed of. We will also use cleaners that have disinfectants and will follow the protocols that have been outlined by organizations such as the EPA and OSHA. Whatever protective gear that is used will also be disposed of properly, typically by incineration.
Understanding What Can Be Cleaned Versus Disposed Of
When looking at a blood cleanup situation, especially a large one due to a crime scene, suicide, or other event, it is important to understand what items can be cleaned and salvaged and what items are best to remove and dispose of. Porous materials, such as clothing, carpeting, and other surfaces that absorb liquids are usually best to dispose of. This is because it is very difficult to to clean and sanitize so that it is disease-free.
