Biohazard Cleanup | Steri-Clean® Minnesota 

By definition, a biological hazard or biohazard is a biological substance that poses a threat to the health of living organisms––predominantly humans. This could include a microorganism, virus, bacteria, or toxin that can adversely affect a human’s health. Plus, a biohazard can also be harmful to pets, other animals, and the environment.


Biohazards include blood, body fluids, types of body tissue, animal and human waste, pathological waste, microbiological waste, and sharps waste that are contaminated with infectious substances. The most common biohazards include:


• Blood
• Human waste

• Animal waste
• Saliva
• Vomit

• Animal carcasses
• Human body fluid (vaginal secretions, semen, amniotic fluid, etc.)
• Sputum
• Nasal secretions
• Microbiological waste
• Human tissue
• Items contaminated with a biohazard material


Biohazard Cleanup Services That Steri-Clean® Offers

Biohazard substances such as blood, tissue, and bodily fluids are prevalent at crime scenes, suicides, hoarding, and accidents. On top of eradicating these types of biohazards, Steri-Clean® Minnesota also offers the following biohazard cleanups:


• Animal and human waste: Animal and human waste is not only unsightly and smells pungent, but it can pollute the environment, the groundwater, and be dangerous to humans and animals. It can contain bacterial infections like cholera, dysentery, and salmonella. 

• Pathological waste: This refers to any material that is infected with pathogens, such as animal bedding or anything that contains blood or body fluids, such as blood vials. 

• Microbiological waste: This type of waste is predominantly found in hospitals and includes substances such as cultures and specimens. 

• Sharps: These are used needles that can still have living pathogens on them. If handled or touched, sharps can pose a real health risk to humans.


How To Manage Biohazards

​We strongly advise that you do not handle any hazardous materials if you don’t have the proper training or equipment. However, if for some reason, you do need to handle a biohazard material or have touched it by accident, be sure to take note of the following safety tips: 


  1. Always wear gloves and other protective gear where possible

  2. Keep sharps (needles, syringes, etc.) in leak-proof, hard, sealable containers

  3. If you come into contact with the substance, wash your hands thoroughly with disinfectant soap and warm water

  4. When you are finished handling the biohazard material, dispose of your safety equipment by placing it in a plastic bag and sealing it
