Since there are so many variables that create a biohazard it’s hard to define an exact procedure that will take place for specific biohazards. Another variety is where the biohazard takes place, for example the tile floor, on wood floor, carpet, cement, etc. Most biohazards that deal with body fluids require extensive disinfectant.
