Biohazard Cleaning & Desinfection
Biohazard Remediation refers to the cleaning of biological substances and infectious agents that contaminate properties or areas in a property including floor, walls, surfaces and furnishings. Biological Cleaning can refer to Death Scene Cleanups, Crime Scene, Suicide, Homicide, Sewage, Urine and Faeces cleanups and cases where Squatters and Hoarders keep a certain amount of clutter and rubbish in their property. Unlike normal house and business cleaning, Biohazard Cleaning is a job that requires industry specific experience and certifications, specialised equipment due to the danger Biohazard Remediation Technicians expose themselves to when working in properties, areas or businesses affected by a Death, Crime Scene or Suicide Scene. Moreover, improper cleanup is highly likely when the cleaner lacks experience and hasn’t been trained to navigate and handle Biohazards, which leaves the house or business up for further future damage, as future occupants will be exposed to remnants that haven’t been decontaminated and removed. Very often, when a violent crime or death occurs in a building and the body is left unattended for hours, days or weeks, the surrounding building materials become contaminated with a variety of toxic agents. Bloodstains on a carpet can soak through it and contaminate the flooring beneath even further, often unbeknownst to anyone without the experience or training. As a result, proper cleaning, disposal of biohazards, remediation and sanitization is important for Trauma and Biohazard Scenes. Trauma Cleaner Australia employs IICRC-certified, trained and experienced Biohazard Remediation Technicians that will thoroughly wash and disinfect all potentially harmful biohazard from any affected areas so occupants can move back into a property safely.
Biohazard Cleaning also refers to the removal and disinfection of drugs and materials used to administer drugs such as Syringes or Hypodermic Needles used for Methamphetamine Consumption. Drug related garbage such as hypodermic needles or Sharps Hazard in general is a growing problem in Australia where Methamphetamine Usage is one of the highest in the World. The danger of coming across a Sharps Hazard is high to the public, especially when you move into a property or vehicle whose history is unknown and that hasn’t been inspected and cleaned thoroughly.
Sharps are needles, blades and other hypodermic needles that are necessary for carrying out healthcare work and could cause an injury by cutting or pricking the skin. Sharps injuries are a well-known risk in the health and social care sector and is becoming more alarming to the general public as the use of needles and sharps grows with the increase of illicit drugs and narcotics in the general community. Sharps contaminated with an infected patient’s blood can transmit more than 20 diseases, including hepatitis B, C and HIV or AIDS. Because of the life-threatening risk of being injured, if you see any used needle, syringe or suspicious sharp item exposed in the open, you should report it immediately to the relevant authorities. Additionally, you should get in touch with Professionals and Experts in specialized cleaning functions that can come, navigate and remediate the area safely. When providing a Sharps and Needle Clean Up, Trauma Cleaner Australia will only provide trained and experienced needle sweep professionals who will work methodically and systematically to ensure the area is left in a safe, needle and biohazard free state.

Trauma Cleaner Australia offers the most comprehensive network of sharps recovery technicians. We understand the risks associated with drug and sharps paraphernalia left in places that can cause injury to unsuspected people, putting sometimes families and insurance companies at serious physical, mental and financial health. In the financial year 2018-2019, about 55,293 motor vehicles were stolen with Victoria as the nationwide leader of number of stolen motor vehicles. This equates to about 1 vehicle getting stolen every 10 mins. A little more than 70% of vehicles are recovered.
When a vehicle is recovered, its previous history is unknown, and history has shown that items can be left in those vehicles that can cause serious injury. Moreover, sharps items are being found in those vehicles, including needles or hypodermic needles normally used for medical functions but in those cases, to administer drugs such as crystal ICE or Methamphetamine. As these sharps can be left at the most unsuspected places in vehicles or properties, anyone using the vehicle or encountering it can be exposed to the danger of sharps injury and contamination with biological agents such as blood-borne pathogens. Because sharps, needles and hypodermic needles are used to prick the skin, used sharps contain blood than can transmit blood borne pathogens, and life-threatening including HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
