Case 1
Technicians begin by applying personal protective equipment and then dispersing the primary disinfectant across the affected areas. After the disinfectant is applied to the affected areas, effected items such as bedding and smaller items that can fit in a medical waste box will be contained first. Technicians progress by capturing the blood and medical waste from all areas visible and begin to remove the affected blood saturated carpet.  Once the blood affected carpet and other affected material are contained in medical waste boxes, the remaining carpet and pad is contained and prepared for transfer as conventional waste.  After the carpet, pad, and trim are removed from the flooring, the concrete subfloor is cleaned and disinfected.  When biological waste has been contained in the medical waste boxes, as well as, the conventional waste prepared for transport, the technicians remove...more



Case 6
The actual inputs on the project were 8 hours of technician labor, 3 gallons of disinfectant, and 2 sets of personal protective equipment (PPE).  The regulated waste recovered from the project will be disposed of in accordance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act...more


Case 10
Two technicians performed decontamination work for a total of 4 work hours to remove the contamination.  During this process, 2 individual sets of personal protective equipment, 5 quarts of disinfectants, and 6 quarts of biological indicator were consumed.  The contamination, blood and bodily fluids, in photos show biological material concentrated on the bed.  The blood affected material extends to portions of the room near the bed from the removal of bedding material and movement of the injured.  Contamination continues to the bathroom and kitchen accumulating in the bathtub and various surfaces...more



Case 12
The contamination (blood and body fluids) on the property was dispersed throughout the guest bedroom, master bedroom, and master bathroom.  Technicians performed decontamination, hygiene remediation, and odor neutralization tasks for over for a total of 40 work hours to remove the contamination.  During this process, 6 individual sets of personal protective equipment, 12 quarts of disinfectant (Shock Wave), 18 quarts of odor neutralizer (Get The Odor Out), and 14 quarts of biological fluid indicator were consumed.  To combat odor and assist in restoring hygiene, the entire home was treated with an atomizing fog of Get The Odor Out. The base ingredient of this product is Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide (2000 PPM), an EPA listed light-duty bactericide. After the initial assessment and development of the waste removal plan, technicians applied all applicable PPE and sprayed the entire area with the primary disinfectant, Shockwave.     

During the dwell time needed for the disinfectant application, review the collateral areas to better define the contamination plumes and for quality control.  Once the air filter from the air conditioning system was removed and disposed of, an additional fog of odor neutralizing chemical would be applied in the HVAC return air opening with the system fan running.  Multiple applications of the Get The Odor Out would be performed.  The odor would be treated in the affected areas, specifically the absorbent material such as carpet, nearby clothing and unaffected bedding, with an odor neutralizing chemical via an atomizing fogger.  This treatment would extend past the bedroom and into the hallway to the removal of the air filter for the HVAC system.  There were multiple areas affected by blood and bodily fluids due to the high number of deceased in the home. The deceased included not only humans but also dogs...more


Case 16
The scope of this project was to perform a house-wide disinfection of common areas due Staphylococcus infection. Included in the scope was a comprehensive disinfection of common areas such as bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, the outside deck and the front porch.  All handrails, doorknobs, toilets, sinks, appliance handles, and all flooring was treated with a hospital grade disinfectant.  Mobilization of resources required for this project would take approximately 45 minutes.  This time includes the removal of the personal protective equipment, disinfectants, and the required tools, fill atomizing fogger with odor counteractant/secondary disinfectant solution, and corrugated regulated medical waste containers from the responding vehicle after arriving on scene...more  



Case 19
The contamination (blood and bodily fluids) was distributed throughout the entry way, kitchen, and front bedroom.  Three technicians performed decontamination work for a total of 12 work hours to remove the contamination.  During this process, 2 individual sets of personal protective equipment and 3 quarts of disinfectant were consumed.  The regulated waste (3 boxes) was captured and will be disposed of in accordance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and a TCEQ Regulated Waste Manifest was provided for support.  This support serves as a certificate of fitness for restoration/reentry.

Gloves and all applicable personal protective equipment (PPE) has been provided to create a protective barrier in between the technician and the site environmental hazards such as blood in accordance with OSHA Standard Personal Protective Equipment 1910.132.  The technician is using a tool to recover blood and broken glass.  OSHA Standard Bloodborne Pathogens 1910.1030 is followed by placing this barrier to hazard in between the technician and the affected area.  

The technicians have been instructed of the hazards associated with the chemicals used, Shockwave MSDS, to comply with OSHA Standard 1910.1200 Hazard Communication.  The personal protective equipment used on this biohazard remediation project was PureShield high risk gloves, plastic face shields, various respirators, and KleenGuard Ultra Bloodborne pathogen rated suits.  The technician is recovering blood and biological fluid with a metal scraper...more
