A Biohazard Cleanup Not For the Faint of Heart

During Thanksgiving week, we received a call from a local university requesting our biohazard cleanup services for their medical school’s cadaver lab. The job was unlike anything we had assisted with before, so our team donned personal protective equipment (PPE) and headed to the campus.

The biohazard cleanup occurred during the holiday season. The cadaver lab featured multiple tables for students to practice their skills.

When our skilled team arrived, we were instructed to decontaminate the cadaver lab. The mortuary room featured over 40 cadaver tables covered in formaldehyde blood and chunks of cadaver flesh. It was certainly no task for the squeamish! Nevertheless, our technicians established a plan to thoroughly clean the materials and return the lab to pristine condition.

We adhered to the biohazard cleanup standards, diligently cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing the lab’s affected contents. Then, our team decontaminated various tools, such as dissecting instruments, mini tables, and several shop vacuums.

Additionally, we sterilized items that came in contact with the cadavers, like the walk-in refrigerators, walls, and floors. Thanks to our team’s professionalism and dedication, we completed the job in five days. Our efficient work enabled students to return to the university after the Thanksgiving break and finish their studies without interruption.

We applaud our outstanding technicians for conducting their work with the utmost dignity and respect. Kudos on a job well done, team!
