Infectious diseases such as C. Diff, MRSA, Hepatitis, Staph and others are highly contagious and easily spread from person to person. Infectious diseases are any types of bacteria, virus, or organisms that are spread when in contact with, ingests contaminated items, or inhales will cause them harm or in some cases death.
Bacteria and virus are invisible and very difficult to decontaminate once a home, business or locker room have been contaminated. When a family member, co-worker or teammate has an infectious disease it is imperative that any room and items they have touched or used are properly decontaminated by a biohazard cleanup company that is licensed and experienced to conduct such work. Not doing so exposes everyone who enters that environment to the disease.
Infectious diseases are typically highly contagious and should not be taken lightly nor should anyone not trained or equipped to decontaminate an environment be put in that situation or they too can easily become infected and also spread the disease. Special chemicals and an attention to detail are critical in ensuring that nobody else unknowingly contracts the disease until it’s too late.
Health Point BioTrauma professional biohazard technicians use proprietary chemicals and techniques designed to decontaminate and kill infectious diseases on both surfaces and in the air.
Call US if you or anyone you know have been diagnosed with an infectious disease so we can provide our expertise in the remediation and eradication services to decontaminate your home, business, or locker room to ensure the health and safety of others resulting from any of the following diseases.
Diseases That Need an Immediate Cleanup
The most common diseases that need an immediate cleaning are as follows:
C. Diff, MRSA, and Staph. If these are exposed in a home, business or school, we are able to clean the most commonly affected areas with the proper disinfectants to assist in preventing or reducing the transfer of the disease.
Formerly known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is a type of staph bacteria that is resistant to certain antibiotics, like oxacillin, penicillin, and amoxicillin. Most of the infections are skin infections; however, the more severe and life-threatening infections will occur in healthcare facilities. We use a proprietary decontaminates and cleaners to removes the bacteria from any hard surfaces. Soft surfaces must be removed and disposed of according to the protocols currently being used.
Formerly known as clostridum difficile is a germ that can cause intestinal illness and excessive diarrhea. Most cases of this infection occur in patients that were taking an antibiotic and were recently in a hospital or healthcare facility. The elderly have the greatest risk of getting C. Diff. The C. Diff spores can live outside the body for up to 6 months. Health Point BioTrauma experienced technicians and processes are able to clean the most probable infected areas.
Hepatitis A, B & C
The Hepatitis A virus, which causes liver damage, has become very common among the homeless community. It is transmitted from feces to mouth and through the consumption of contaminated water and food; so unsanitary conditions make it more likely to spread and it is commonly found in the belongings and living areas of the homeless.
The virus tends be transmitted when an infected person uses the bathroom and doesn’t wash his/her hands or through the consumption of contaminated water or food. Unfortunately, the homeless have no way to wash their hands after defecating and tend to eat food that is not fresh and thus great care must be taken when cleaning out a homeless encampment and should only be done by well trained and properly protected technicians. Once the debris is removed the area must be decontaminated to ensure the health and safety of others. Safe and effective vaccines are available to prevent HAV.
The Hepatitis B virus is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic disease. The virus is transmitted through contact with the blood or other body fluids (feces, saliva, urine, vomit) of an infected person. Blood is often found in feces, urine and vomit. Safe and effective vaccines are available to prevent HBV.
The Hepatitis C virus is a blood borne virus and the most common modes of infection are through exposure to small quantities of blood. This may happen through injection drug use, unsafe injection practices, unsafe health care, and the transfusion of unscreened blood and blood products. There is currently no vaccine for hepatitis C.
