Why our biohazard cleaning services make a difference
We have the training, expertise, and well-refined protocols to make your location safe again with thorough and efficient cleaning and disinfecting. We consider all potential areas of exposure so your family, employees, customers, pets, and anyone else at your location will have peace of mind they will be in a safe environment going forward.
Biological contamination can hide anywhere
With the number of locations we’ve cleaned up over the years, we know blood and bodily fluids can splatter out of sight. Whether visible or hidden, our specialized equipment and techniques detect these substances, as well as bacteria and viruses, the human eye cannot see. We’ve found fluids splattered on ceilings, into heating ducts, and into cooling vents. We know how to find and handle fluids that have seeped between floorboards and soaked into subfloors or even into porous materials like tile grout.
Contaminated materials are risky to handle
Hazardous materials from infected people such as blood, vomit, urine, excrement, or human tissue, can put you at a health risk for contracting diseases like HIV and hepatitis (A, B, and C). Animal waste can also contain infectious pathogens such as Hanta Virus from mice. We have the knowledge, experience, and equipment to safely handle, remove, and dispose of infectious materials at a licensed waste facility.
No regulations or guidelines to assist you
In Alberta, the provincial government does not regulate or provide guidelines for the cleanup of biohazardous substances. Individuals and companies need to learn how to do the cleanup safely and properly themselves. This means any janitorial or cleaning company can say they remove biohazardous material without the knowledge to do so properly. Each technician at Mayken™ is trained to the high standards of our procedures and uses full PPE to ensure everyone's safety.
Why trauma cleanup is really not a DIY job
Biocleaning professionals have the training and experience to handle all the factors above safely and thoroughly. We clean up and sanitize the trauma scene, removing any potential dangerous bloodborne pathogens. This ensures the area has no traces of contamination and is returned to a biologically safe condition. As specialized cleaners, we respond to all types of scenes, including hoarding situations, homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, and accidents.
This is not a job suited for everyone. Because of the nature of the work, a cleaning technician undergoes extensive training to understand the dangers of bloodborne pathogens and exposure, to gain the skills necessary to clean them, and to know how to dispose of contaminated items safely. Becoming skilled is a prolonged process that requires experience and years of commitment.
On top of the grueling nature of the work, biohazard cleaners also must be empathetic and compassionate. They encounter a wide range of tragic circumstances where they are providing support and comfort to the families or co-workers who are going through a terrible situation. They also often become advocates for helping deal with insurance claims.
