Serious health consequences can be caused by the exposure biohazard contaminants, including chemical or biological.

Our experienced staff at Adams is trained to handle all types of biohazards and pathogens to dispose of them in accordance to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). From crime scenes to trauma events, we are discrete, compassionate, and professionally trained to clean-up after traumatic events.
Biohazard cleanups involve cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing areas where an event has occurred. Biohazards often refers to blood or human remains, chemical or biological spills, and more. What people may not always realize is that crime scenes are not cleaned up by law enforcement. Once law enforcement is finished with its investigatory procedures, it is left up to the home or business owner to clean and sanitize the scene. The professional cleanup services here at Adams will arrive after law enforcement has finished their investigations and confirmed that cleanup can occur.
