Biohazard Cleanup

6/10/2019 (Permalink)

Many studies have shown there's a great risk with raccoon fecal matter, especially when it comes to possible exposure with baylisascaris procyonis.

We are commonly known as the Fire & Water damage restoration business... But did you know that SERVPRO of Cedar Mill / Oak Hills has an expertise with biohazard cleaning?

This includes a broad range of tasks that we're capable of providing. Examples of biohazard materials may include handling blood, proper disposal of bodily matter, to working with animal feces. 

Wait... ANIMAL FECES??? 

Some waste, such as raccoon fecal matter, may sometimes actually contain unwanted parasites that many people don't consider. One that particularly stands out is a dangerous parasite called Baylisascaris procyonis. This is a seriously dangerous roundworm that poses a threat to health and safety. The primary host to this roundworm is within raccoons, and the waste that comes from the raccoon is truly hazardous. This is why we urge great caution, and encourage leaving matters such as this to experts. 

At SERVPRO of Cedar Mill / Oak Hills, we have trained professionals that are qualified to handle biohazard materials such as this. Biohazard incorporates more than just blood, and we always enjoy educating the public on what may pose as a risk to handle. Call us at (503) 619-6198 if you have any biohazard concerns!
