Initial Do's and Don'ts of Bodily Fluid Cleanup
Whether it is an unfortunate injury causing significant blood loss at the workplace, or an unattended death of a tenant in a living complex, it is important to handle the situation with care.
- Call SERVPRO as soon as you are aware of the situation. If the situation is in need of a police investigation please call your local law enforcement to address the situation first!
- If safe to do so, contain the area as quickly as possible. It is important to keep any hazardous pathogens from spreading.
- Don't try to handle the cleanup with everyday cleaning supplies. These products are not suitable for this type of cleanup.
- Don't enter the contaminated space without proper personal protective equipment (PPE). Take all measures to avoid the area if possible.
