Do not trust government employees to send you to a decent biohazard cleanup company. They receive a finders fee in return for sending families to biohazard cleanup companies.


Antibiotic: means a solution or solutions created by medical science for the purpose of killing harmful bacteria. Antibiotics are used for fighting diseases in humans and many domestic animals. These bacteria killing drugs result from the production of use of dead bacteria to create immunities. These drugs are created from living organisms like fungi and soil bacteria.

Archaea: are known as bacteria like organisms and surviving at three temperature. They produce methane. They are not true bacteria. As far as we can tell the history these microorganisms do not cause disease in humans. Some archaea are known to make their homes in our mouths and intestines.

Bacteria consist of simple one celled organism. They have no nucleus and we also refer to these as prokaryotic. We separate prokaryotic organisms from eukaryotic organisms' (higher life forms) cells. Bacteria have no membrane-bound cell structures.

Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria causing health issues for human beings at times.


Biohazard and infectious material that may present a relative potential threat to plants and animals. Capable of disrupting environment, it biohazard may destroy individual members of a species or an entire species.

Biohazard practitioner a person trained to remove blood from homicide, suicide, unattended death, and other trauma scenes involving human beings.

Biowaste material originating from animal and human excretion including human biohazards and infectious ways. Biowaste may include once infectious material altered to noninfectious materials.

Bloodborne pathogen known as germs that may include harmful bacteria or harmful virus material contained in human blood.

Body fluids blood, cranial fluid, I fluid, feces, (who who), spinal fluid, urine

Bio waste incinerator commercial incineration biowaste for profit.

Biohazard cleanup practitioner certification as of this writing know no one government entity serves as an authority ensuring compliance with standard government biohazard cleanup practitioner training.

Biological safety levels consist of physical containment areas hierarchically labeled

  1. Biological safety level I consist of agents that are not known to cause disease in healthy adults; no special safety equipment is required other than having sinks available for general hygienic purposes.
  2. Biological level consistent laboratories or other environments containing agents known to cause human diseases. Such environments have a limited access, biological science, sharks warnings, and a biological safety manual present. The presence of at least one biological safety cabinet for storing aerosol/generating operations materials resides in an easily access area. Contain laboratory coats, nonporous gloves, face protection equipment, and the presence of an autoclave or decontaminating waste materials. In ventilating system suited to the needs of a biological level II environment must be present.
  3. Biological safety level III contains agents that may cause serious and legal consequences or aerosol transmission of biohazards; decontamination of all wasted laboratory clothing before laundering must occur; determination of baseline serum; biological safety cabinet used for all sample manipulation; full respiratory equipment as needed; physical separation from core doors; double door access; negative airflow. At the filter used to remove particulates from injury and exhaust air.
  4. Biological safety level for consist of an environment known to contain dangerous or exotic agents a life threatening or unknown risk contamination; level III practices required as well as the contamination of all materials on exit; positive pressure personnel equipment suits required for entry; an isolated environment (a separate building); dedicated air supply and exhaust with help of filter; and decontamination for all systems.

Bioload reduction eliminating biohazards and other infectious materials by altering or destroying blood and other infectious materials. Bioload reduction often includes cutting, demolishing, sealing, or flushing the same materials down the sanitary sewer.

Biosafe the biohazard cleanup company owned and operated by Eddie Evans and his wife in which serves as a consumer advocate crime scene cleanup company. First to use the nouns blood cleanup, suicide, homicide, biohazard cleanup for Internet marketing, biosafe remains dedicated to consumer safety and responsible biohazard cleanup company practices.

Biosafety and acted in good faith effort showing evidence-based standard operating procedures in place for biohazard cleanup of microbial contamination and infection generating conditions.

Checklist a list used to remind bio cleanup practitioners to perform certain steps and actions. The checklist contains actions, materials, and a hierarchy of standard operating procedures.

False-negative applies to a biohazard cleanup practitioner actually infected but found on infected. A person received a negative and should have received a positive, meaning exposure to a germ.

False-positive applies to a biohazard cleanup practitioner actually uninfected but found to be infected. A person receive a positive and should have received a negative, meaning no exposure to a germ.

Germs are known as infectious microbes and viruses in popular culture.

Lean a system of acts created to find and stop all non-value adding practices. Lean tools include the S5: sort, set, shine, standardized, sustained. Can-do: an English acronym used to describe Japanese manufacturing techniques (Toyota) clearing up, arranging, neatness, discipline, ongoing improvement. Currently used by biosafety streamline biohazard cleanup practices

Material safety data sheet (MSDS) a technical bulletin providing biohazard cleanup practitioners with detailed hazard and precautionary information; most often applied to cleaning solutions and disinfectants.

Microbes are known as microscopic organisms and these include prokaryotic bacteria. Eukaryotic parasites known as fungi (vaginal "yeast," ringworm and others) and have a wide distribution in our society. Parasites are known to cause malaria, he i.e. our DIA, and AIM.

Microflora find their place in the human body. As such they include various fungi.

Normative document applies to documentation rules, guidelines or characteristics or activities or for the results. You normative document includes standards, technical specifications, codes or practices and regulations.

Normative statement information found in documents providing required an essential standards. "Shall" occurs throughout such documents.

PTCA serves as an acronym for plan, do, check, act. This is a checklist and includes four stages for problem-solving. See the Deming cycle of continuous improvement.

Parasites take advantage of their host while creating nothing useful in return.

Process refers to using labor power natural resources for inputs into outputs. Inputs become outputs because some kind of work, activity, or function occurs.

Risk a combination of severity of harm and probability of harm will occur.

Viruse: Virus exist as particles of genetic material. Viruses consist of either DNA or RNA and have a protein coat that is difficult to penetrate. Viruses are not alive. We do not consider them alive because they have no reproductive apparatus like bacteria and other life.

Personal protective equipment

Ozone gas electric charges contained in a box generate an additional electron on oxygen atoms that serves as a radical electron; this electron spins off and because of its oxidizing properties alters microorganisms while reducing voters created by microorganism offgassing.

Respirator respirators are used by personnel involved in high risk or otherwise dangerous work involving inhalation hazards. Biohazard practitioners often use a charcoal filter on their respirators to reduce nauseating orders.

Safe zone biohazard cleanup practitioners create a safe zone from an area deemed clear of biohazards or in which biohazards our first reduced. A safe zone then becomes an area for break time and debriefing for planning and reorganizing equipment and materials. It also serves as an area to decontaminate clothing and footwear as well as equipment.
