Biohazard cleaning prices
Prices of a service usually scare anyone at the moment you have a casualty, especially a biohazard one that is so demanding and required of highly specialized service. According to Brian Klupper (manager for American Family Insurance) biohazard cleanup tends to cost double or triple what a water loss or building fire cleanup could be. He also mentions that he has managed claims of about $45,000 for a biohazard cleanup. Finally he concludes that sometimes restoration services treat all the biohazard situations following the same procedure, which is wrong; supervision and design of particular plan for the restoration service is always advisable.
Then, of course, there is a vast array of services and prices can be significantly different. It will also depend on what you expect, what you really need and what you deserve. When hiring a company for Biohazard restoration, you have to take into account the service it must include: Biohazard cleanup, odor removal and Biohazardous waste disposal fee.
About biohazard cleanup itself, prices for this service are affected by some issues like the kind of biohazard waste (body, animal, sewage); the time of exposure of the area to the biohazard situation, because when the area was exposed to biohazard damage for a long period of time, fluids and odor remains harder and the labor of restoration is harder then. And the number of people demanded for the job (which increases the price per person). Materials required of course, affect the budget. Prices may vary from $1,500 to $2,000 (in average).
Odor removal must definitely be included during biohazard cleanup. Opening the building and ventilating are for sure the first steps. But the real odor removal includes the use of specialized equipments as well as sanitization products that raise the costs.
Biohazardous waste disposal fee is determined by issues like the time or the size of waste bin that are used. Disposal of waste is divided into two types: biohazardous and regular trash. When a carpet is damaged by blood, the part with blood must be cut and disposed as biohazardous waste. The rest must be disposed also, but as a regular trash. Biohazardous trash must be always disposed separated and in special containers. Equipments used by the technicians during managing biohazardous waste must also drop in the biohazardous bin. Disposal of biohazardous waste must be certified and carried out in special places. Some companies may charge $250 per each 43 gallon red biohazardous waste bin.
