After any biohazard situation, your primary focus should be safety first:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and “slip and fall” hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!
  • State Laws and Licensing Requirements may apply.

What to do After a Biohazard:

  • Stay out of affected areas.
  • Call emergency service personnel if the situation is life-threating.
  • Treat all bodily fluids as if they are contaminated.
  • Turn off the HVAC system if there is sewage damage.

What NOT to do After a Biohazard:

  • Don’t attempt cleanup of any kind.
  • Don’t touch or handle items that might be contaminated with bodily fluids.
  • Eat, drink, smoke, apply cosmetics or handle contact lenses in affected areas.

If exposed to harmful waste, OSHA recommends a post-exposure medical evaluation. Consult your local health department or physician.
