Biohazard cleaning can pose a serious health risk.  Biohazards should be considered very dangerous and treated with proper safety precautions in place.  We are trained to properly clean up biohazards. We dispose of them properly in accordance with OSHA and other health regulations.

Sewage and hurricane floods are two common biohazard scenarios that affect homes and commercial properties.  However, more scenarios exist that require the same level of care. We have cleaned up every kind of scenario where bloodborne pathogens are present.  Examples include accidents involving trauma, hoarding, unattended end of life deaths, suicides, and a crime scene cleanup with a homicide.

SERVPRO of Richardson has serviced Dallas Fort Worth for over 30 years as a trusted leader and a professional cleaning company.  We have successfully cleaned hundreds of homes and commercial properties of biohazard contaminants. We are ready to help you, too.
