Some of the most common types of biohazard cleaning or biohazard remediation are microbial bioremediation, phytoremediation, and mycoremediation. However, the word bioremediation has evolved in recent years to include biohazard removal and crime scene cleaning services. Although these subdivisions of bioremediation share the same name, they vary drastically in both definition and execution.
Types of Biohazard Remediation
Biohazard remediation technology has made it possible to decontaminate soil and groundwater and has helped us clean up our oceans after oil spills and other environmental disasters.
Microbial bioremediation uses microorganisms to break down contaminants by using them as a food source.
Phytoremediation uses plants to bind, extract, and clean up pollutants such as pesticides, petroleum hydrocarbons, metals, and chlorinated solvents.
Mycoremediation uses fungi’s digestive enzymes to break down contaminants such as pesticides, hydrocarbons, and heavy metals.
Biohazard Remediation in Forensic Cleaning
The goal of biohazard remediation as it pertains to forensic cleaning and crime scene cleaning is to rid a site of potential biohazards. These biohazards include blood, body fluid, and communicable diseases. Instead of cleaning a crime or trauma scene with household bleach or cleaning products which have negative effects on the environment, biohazard remediation companies often mitigate and sanitise using enzyme cleaners that are less stringent.
How does Crime Scene Cleaning work?
At the request of the victim’s family, crime scene cleaners usually enter a trauma site once law enforcement officials have processed the scene. The job of a crime scene cleaner is not only to clean up the blood and potential biohazards that are left behind. Additionally, biohazard cleaners also sanitise and completely disinfect the scene
