Bloodborne Pathogen Certified
Exposure to potentially hazardous blood is one of the most common ways that infections spread. We are certified in Bloodborne Pathogen cleaning and decontamination techniques including universal precautions to protect the public against infectious disease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the public health community recommends using “universal precautions” when cleaning up blood/body fluid spills. The concept of “universal precautions” assumes that all individuals are infected with blood-borne pathogens, and requires cleaning crews to avoid transfer of these pathogens by minimizing splashing and requiring the use of appropriate personal protective equipment, particularly disposable gloves, face shield, splash goggles, or pocket mask, to prevent contact.
Sanitation and disinfection is necessary for any medical or healthcare facility. To maintain a healthy environment to heal the sick and help the unwell, your business must be meticulously cleaned and sanitized by a professional crew.
