Why are bioremediation costs so high?

Most people associate remediation with the same type of cleanup that is found for fire or water loss however, when bioremediation (blood and biohazard cleanup) is needed as a result of a suicide, murder, unattended death or traumatic incident these situations pose a greater risk for the property owner and cleanup crews. 

Bioremediation and decontamination services should always be performed by certified companies that specialize in the cleanup of blood, biohazard and infectious materials. In order to minimize risk of possible contamination to other areas or people and to ensure the safety of the property owner Iowa CTS Cleaners performs certified biohazard cleanup and decontamination services. We follow proper protocols established by State and Federal agencies. 

Because of these strict guidelines and protocols for proper biohazard disposal the costs associated with bioremediation are significantly higher. The cost of obtaining proper permits, training and equipment used for these types of cleanup jobs are all factors in the total costs associated with the cleanup job. Depending on the size scene that needs remediation, will also determine the cost of the job. 

Cleanup of blood, bodily fluids and biohazards from death, murder and suicides scenes is the most common service that we provide. Property owners should realize that not hiring a certified biohazard cleanup company like Iowa CTS Cleaners can result in being liable due to health compromises or harm to others as a result of any improper cleanup. 

The health status/condition of persons associated with the cause of biohazard are not known.  One out of every 24 people has Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV and these pathogens can survive in a deceased person for up to 16 days after death. Exposure to these and other harmful pathogens can occur from splashes of blood, inhalation and other biological fragments that are found at these types of scenes.

Ordinary Des Moines and other Iowa restoration companies like the ones that handle fire or flood damage are not required to follow the same cleanup, removal and disposal guidelines as companies associated with the cleanup and handling of blood or biohazard materials.  Because of this our company maintains all necessary permits and only allows technicians who are specially trained in biohazard cleanup and handling to perform jobs. This helps ensure the safety of our clients or anyone who may come in contact with the affected areas.
