No one wants to be the person who has to call a hazmat cleanup company in order to clean up after a crime scene. That's why it is important for every business owner and homeowner alike, to know how much does hazmat cleaning cost. Crime scenes can happen anywhere so there are many different variables that go into determining hazmat cleaning costs. The hazmat cleaners will need an estimate of how much time they will spend on site as well as what materials they will need.
Some of the common materials and equipment needed for hazmat cleanup are:
- hazmat suits
- personal protective equipment (PPE) such as goggles, gloves, and masks.
-Polymer remover such as Mira Clean or Ecospray
-Bleach, ammonia and other cleaning solutions.
The hazmat cleaner will also need to know how much time they have before the crime scene must be cleaned up. Some hazmat cleaners may offer a same day service while others might require an advance notice. Even more so it will depend on how quickly the room needs cleaned. Faster cleaning may require more crime scene cleaners to be at the scene to assist in the biohazard removal process.
When hazmat cleaners arrive at the scene they will need to assess how much hazardous waste is on site and whether or not there is a risk of chemical exposure. Variables exist such as what kind of surfaces the blood is on. For example the blood on certain tiles may also have asbestos which will need testing and specialized removal.
How to get an estimate:
- The hazmat cleaners will need to know how much blood is there and the size of the room. They will then have a better idea on what kind of supplies are needed and work out an estimate for you. Although this may be done by photographs it is important to understand that many elements are often missed by pictures. So it is always best to have a cleaner come to the home and meet the homeowner to determine how much blood has spread in a room to be cleaned.
