What is the Difference between Hazmat & Biohazard Cleanup?

When looking for a company to conduct hazardous material or blood cleanup, you will likely come across two types of companies: biohazard and hazmat. While they both clean hazards that only well-trained people should handle, there are many critical differences needing to be considered when deciding who to hire. By knowing the similarities and differences, you will be able to get the help you need whenever a hazard on your Hawaiian property needs to be dealt with.

What they have in common

Both biohazard and hazmat companies receive specialized training for the materials the company cleans and disinfects. They are hazardous materials the average person is not prepared to handle. They do not have the legal licenses and permits to conduct safe disposal and they lack the tools and protective gear they would need to protect themselves. Moreover, cleaning up hazards after an accident or crime can be emotionally traumatizing. No one should be cleaning up hazards they aren’t fully prepared to deal with.

These companies have staff who can respond quickly and who will take whatever condition the property is in and restore it to pre-event conditions. Available day and night, no matter the issue, the staff are experienced in handling the problem.

Biohazard Cleanup

A biohazard cleanup company, such us here at Bio X Hawaii, handles materials of a biological nature—substances that have either come from a living being or is a living organism itself. This can include but is not limited to:

  • Blood
  • Bodily fluids
  • Urine
  • Feces
  • Vomit
  • Viruses
  • Bacteria

With specially trained staff and years of experience cleaning up biohazards in a variety of environments, a quality biohazard company cleans up your property after the occurrence of crimes, accidents, suicides, and infectious diseases among many other situations. Such a company uses personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves while making sure all biohazards, both seen and unseen, are removed and legally disposed of, all the while strictly following all local and federal rules and regulations. Companies that do biohazard cleaning also protect the property owner since without the appropriate licenses and permits to handle and transport such material, the property owner can be held legally liable for any future damage.

Often walking into emotionally charged situations, biohazard company staff know how to explain the process to clients with kindness and compassion while also handling the situation quickly and professionally. Though it is dangerous work, biohazard cleanup staff are dedicated to being there for people in their time of need, helping them clean up the aftermath and move forward.

While many such companies also regularly handle odor removal, mold, drug paraphernalia, and chemicals used in police investigations, check with the biohazard company to make sure they handle all the materials you need safely removed.

Hazmat Cleanup

Hazmat companies are there to clean up hazardous materials that are not biological in nature, but that can harm living organisms. Such materials include:

  • Hazardous waste
  • Poisons
  • Propane and gas
  • Oil
  • Acids
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Lead

Hazmat companies have their own specialized personal protective equipment to protect against the hazard and have specialized knowledge of how to clean these hazardous materials from both indoor and outdoor environments with the least disruption to both animals and plants in the area. These are often the companies you will see at work after an environmental catastrophe or at work in a home when hazardous substances are discovered and need to be safely removed. Highly skilled, hazmat teams work quickly and meticulously to make sure all hazards are disposed of properly in order to prevent further harm.

Bio X Hawaii is always here for your biohazard cleanup needs

When you are in the middle of an emergency, it can be easy to mix up hazmat companies and biohazard cleanup companies. By knowing the difference, you will be able to contact the appropriate help you need. Even though there can be some overlap on hazards the company handles, each one has their own specialties. For example, for an oil spill or a chemical accident at your business, you will want to call a hazmat cleanup company. If you are dealing with a suicide, death, hoarded home, or infectious disease cleanup, then our biohazard cleanup team at Bio X Hawaii will be glad to serve you.

Bio X Hawaii is proud to be a part of our community while serving people needing biohazard cleanup throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Available 24-7, we are always here for you whenever you need us.
