What is considered a biohazard?
Now that you know that a biohazard is exposure to biological and chemical contaminants you may be wondering what is considered a biohazard. The most common biohazards are: sewage backups, bloodborne pathogens, and illegal drug manufacturing labs / meth labs.
Sewage backups and dark water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits – these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. We remove the sewage, contaminants, and moisture, and help ensure the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized.
We remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue and other potentially pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Trained SERVPRO of San Diego East Professionals clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.
Illegal Drug Manufacturing Labs / Meth Labs
SERVPRO realizes many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as "meth" are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. We follow federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
Here are other situations that are considered biohazards:
- Crime scene residues
- Suicide/death accidents
- Homicide cleanups

- Accident cleanup
- Hoarding scenes
- Animal waste/remains
