Biohazard Cleanup and Restoration

COVID-19 24/7 RESPONSE! CALL NOW 505-828-3567


The job of a biohazard cleaner is to completely clean, sanitize, and deodorize the site where a violent crime, suicide, or traumatic accident has occurred. Biohazard cleanup can be challenging work that requires technicians to handle potentially hazardous materials such as blood and body fluids, and proper handling of the crime or trauma scene is crucial to the safety of everyone involved.


Are you interested in pursuing a career in biohazard cleaning? If so, you likely have questions about the process.

What certifications are required for biohazard cleanup? Although there is no certification required to become a biohazard cleaner, OSHA requires any employee that has the potential of being exposed to bloodborne pathogens to complete training in bloodborne pathogens personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes individuals working in a wide range of industries, including law enforcement, health care, and bioremediation.

Many biohazard cleanup companies are happy to offer on-the-job training in bioremediation best practices and safety compliance for all employees. According to The Houston Chronicle, “Learning OSHA’s on-the-job safety methods when handling biohazardous waste and working in hazardous areas is strongly advised because it reduces the risk of accidents, potential lawsuits, and can lower a business’ insurance costs.”

Common Biohazard Scenarios

Sewage Backups

Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.

Bloodborne Pathogens

We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO of NE Albuquerque Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.

Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs

SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as "meth" are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. We follow federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
