Biohazard Cleanup at Local Burleson Private School

The thawed meat and food in the broken freezer created a hazardous situation.

When you think of property damage, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? It’s probably a flood, leak, fire, or even mold infestation. Biohazard is also a situation many of us don’t realize that can cause damage.

Biohazard refers to biological substances, materials, or agents threatening human health or the environment. These hazards can include infectious microorganisms (such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi), toxins, and other biological materials that can cause disease or harm living organisms.

We advise against handling dangerous substances on your own. When you need professional biohazard cleanup, call the team at PuroClean of Crowley. Our compassionate team is available 24/7 to help you quickly get back on your feet.

A Freezer Failure

In July 2023, we received a call from a local private school requesting biohazard cleanup. They were familiar because PuroClean of Crowley owner Michael Baca’s daughter attends the school.

Their freezer lost power, disrupting the temperature control inside. It contained desserts, frozen snacks, and over 35 pounds of ground beef and other meats. When the electricity stopped functioning, the items gradually thawed, causing the blood from the meat to spill onto the tile floor. The kitchen was in the same building as the gym where summer youth sports camps occurred, so the putrid odor and mess were discovered by a passerby.

Upon being contacted by the school staff, we promptly assessed the situation and formulated a plan to address the biohazard. The first step was the safe disposal of the spoiled freezer and its contents, followed by meticulously cleaning the tile flooring and wall areas affected by the leakage.

Our next step in the cleanup process was eliminating any lingering unpleasant smells. We used our state-of-the-art air scrubbers with charcoal pre-filters to purify the air in the kitchen.

Then, we utilized odor blocks and crystal odor counteractants to neutralize the odor over a few days. Our skilled technicians worked diligently to ensure a clean, odor-free environment for the school’s staff and students before the start of the new year.

Our prompt action, expertise, and specialized equipment played a pivotal role in ensuring the safety and well-being of the school community. Thankfully, we finished the biohazard cleanup with minimal disruption to the ongoing summer camps and activities.
