Biohazard Remediation Team

Once the crime scene cleaning team begins work, it is possible that certain biohazards can expose individuals to potential bloodborne pathogens. These may include: COVID-19, Hepatitis-B, Hepatitis-C, HIV, Clostridium Difficle (C. Diff), and MRSA.

At Chicago Water & Fire Restoration, our crews are professionally trained with specialized equipment to sanitize and disinfect areas exposed to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Visit our COVID-19 Sanitizing Services page to learn more.

There are also exposure concerns regarding airborne pathogens, which can be extremely dangerous due to their invisible nature. Every instance should be treated as if the risks listed above are present. Trust our cleanup professionals to ensure all biohazards and potentially infectious materials are eliminated.

For 24-hour emergency service, call 1-800-597-6911 or Contact Us.

Biohazard Cleanup

Delivered through a 12-step process


Step 1: Damage Assessment – A pre-scan will be completed using our three-dimensional room-mapping camera and technology called “Matterport.”


Step 2: Establish Three Main Zones: A control zone, where the incident occurred, a buffer zone to prevent cross-contamination, and a clean zone to stage required tools


Step 3: Biological Removal – Biological fluids will be removed from the structure located within the control zone and properly disposed.


Step 4: Content Manipulation – Contents will be moved, allowing access to the structure within the control zone.


Step 5: Surface Preparation – All remaining obstructions will be removed from within the control zone in preparation of the 3-Step Biological Wash.


Step 6: Pre-ATP Test – Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is a test that will be performed prior to the 3-step biological wash. The ATP pre-test will measure residual organic matter that is present on the structure within the control zone.


Step 7: Biological Wash, Phase One – The structure within the control zone will be fully washed to prepare for the disinfectant phase.


Step 8: Biological Wash, Phase Two – The structure within the control zone will be fully disinfected, allowing for proper wet/dry times.


Step 9: Biological Wash, Phase Three – The structure within the control zone will be fully washed one final time, removing any residue or chemical odor.


Step 10: Post-ATP Test – A post-ATP test will be completed to ensure that all residual organic matter present on the pre-ATP test has been removed within the control zone. This will read zero.




Step 11: Path of Egress (POE) – Hard surfaces located within the POE will be disinfected after the control zone has been fully cleaned.


Step 12: Final Site Inspection and Walk-Through – A final walk-through will be completed with the contract signer along with a post-scan using “Matterport.”
