Hazmat Cleanup Companies
Biohazard Cleanup Services
Our biohazard cleanup services involve cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing residential and commercial properties where a traumatic event has taken place. Accidents, injuries, or deaths can leave a variety of hazardous materials behind, including blood, chemical spills, human or animal waste, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious materials.
It's important to note that the city is not responsible for providing biohazard cleaning services as this is up to the property owner to arrange. For example, if there was a crime committed on your property, police investigators will collect evidence from the crime scene, and then it is the property owner's responsibility to seek professional hazmat cleanup. That's where we come in.
At Scott Asbestos, we provide everything from crime scene cleanup and biohazard waste removal to chemical spill remediation, sanitation deodorization, sewage cleanup services, and more. For the thorough and responsible removal of biohazardous waste, we have the skilled professionals, proper equipment, and certification to provide reliable hazmat cleanup.
Our biohazard cleanup services include:
• Remediation of blood and bodily fluids
• Virus decontamination
• Crime scene cleanup
• Deodorization and odour control
• Removal of chemical contaminants

• And more
Biohazard Cleanup Process
When we conduct biohazard cleanup, it is always carried out with diligence, professionalism, and respect for all people involved. To ensure all potentially hazardous materials are removed and every space is cleaned and sanitized up to industry standards, our process for hazmat cleanup is as follows:
To protect workers from hazardous materials, everyone at the cleanup site will be wearing and using the proper equipment. While the specifics vary from job to job, the hazmat cleanup gear should always include full-face protection, waterproof coveralls, gloves, and a respirator.
When on site, the cleanup crew will identify all affected areas to determine the extent of the hazmat cleanup and design a plan of action.
The crew will then remove all potentially hazardous materials from the site.
If the cleanup involves hazardous medical waste such as amniotic fluid, spinal fluid, blood, or other bodily fluids, the hazardous material will be disposed of according to Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) standards.
To mitigate serious risk and maintain health regulations, technicians remove porous materials such as fabrics, carpets, tapestries, etc. from the property.
All non-hazardous materials will be disposed of or decontaminated if considered safe and salvageable.
After the biohazard removal and hazmat cleanups complete, technicians will deodorize the premises. If further cleanup is needed to fully deodorize the space, hydroxyls or ozone can be used to eliminate any lingering scents.
If the incident left stains on the walls, floors, or ceiling, these areas may be sealed to cover any discolouration.
Biohazard cleaning is a varied industry, as every case comes with its own set of nuances and requirements. As such, there is no fixed price for hazmat cleanup. Rather, when potential clients inquire about our services, we provide an estimate based on our years of experience providing hazmat cleanups. However, the final quote will be given after we visit the scene and can answer the following questions:
- What is the condition of the property?
- Does the incident include a death or suicide?
- How much time has passed between the event occurring and the discovery of the incident?
- Does the event involve an industrial accident?
- Does the scene include biological contaminants, chemical contaminants, blood borne pathogens, etc.?
- What equipment is needed to provide the biohazard cleanup?
We will then be able to provide a customized quote on the cost of our biohazard cleaning services.

When it comes to remediating a residential or commercial property after an accident, injury, or death has occurred, our team has the means to fully restore the space.

It is always our goal to provide cleanup services with our client's well-being in mind, and hopefully restore feelings of peace and calm for all involved.
