When dealing with the aftermath of a death, whether it be a traumatic event or sadly passing away due to an illness, there is oftentimes blood and other body fluids left behind that need to be addressed. While cleaning blood spills can seem daunting and even overwhelming, they don't have to be.
From determining what type of material was affected by the spill, to using proper cleanup techniques after any removal processes are completed, at Bio-One of Pittsburgh we understand you’re going through enough as it is and has created this guide for you in hopes of making cleaning any stains left from trauma or death inside your home or business premises easier and more manageable!
Gloves, a mask, and goggles are essential to protect yourself from hazards like chemical exposure while cleaning the spill.
When it comes to cleaning up spills, it is important to prioritize your safety first. That means wearing personal proper protective gear like gloves, a mask, and goggles. These essential items can protect you from common hazards like exposure to bloodborne pathogens. We understand that accidents happen, and spills can be stressful to clean up. But taking the time to don the correct gear can make all the difference in keeping you safe from harm.
As professionals, we urge everyone to prioritize their safety and never underestimate the importance of protective equipment.
Neutralize the area with a detergent solution or disinfectant before you begin cleaning it.
Make sure to read the directions for each product before you begin. This will help ensure that you are using them correctly and in accordance with safety guidelines! Put on personal protective equipment, as these items are necessary to protect you from contact with the blood that may be present in the spill.
Once all of your safety gear is in place, it’s time to start cleaning up the area!
Use paper towels or cloths to blot up as much of the remnants possible from hard surfaces.
When faced with blood stains on hard surfaces, it can be distressing. We understand how important it is to remove as much of the blood as possible in a timely manner, which is why we recommend using paper towels or cloths to blot up the stain. These items will absorb the blood and prevent it from spreading further.
Remember to blot and not rub, as rubbing will only push stains deeper into the surface!
Use an appropriate cleaner for your surface type, such as a glass cleaner or bleach for hard surfaces, and follow instructions on any product packaging carefully.
It's crucial to use an appropriate cleaner for each surface type and follow the instructions on the product packaging carefully. Once you've applied the cleaner, use a clean rag or paper towel to blot the stain until it's gone. Remember to rinse and dry the surface after each application of cleaner.
Finally, if you're still having difficulty removing the stain, try soaking it with white vinegar for an hour or two before repeating the process above. This should help to lift the stain and leave surfaces looking as good as new.
