Medi-San – Biohazard, Remediation & Restoration

Our Process

  • Biohazard Cleanup Process

    1

    Step 1

    Wearing appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) face, eye and body protection when splashes, sprays, spatters, or droplets of blood or OPIM pose a hazard to the eye, nose, or mouth. Remove immediately or as soon as feasible any garment contaminated by blood or OPIM, in such a way as to avoid contact with the outer surface.

    A blood spill, vomit, feces, urine and other bodily fluid spills are more than an inconvenient mess. In a home, school, or workplace, cleaning blood spills may pose health risks if the spill is contaminated with infectious agents. Proper cleanup procedures reduce these risks.

    2

    Step 2

    Isolate the incident and block off the area of the body fluid spill to prevent further spreading.

    Cover the spill with absorbent paper towels to avoid stepping in it. Alternatively a solid absorbent material can be spread over the surface.

    Carefully wipe up the spill with rags of paper towels and carefully place the mess in a plastic bag. Spray surface with an appropriate cleaner- disinfectant, then wipe up area with paper towels.

    3

    Step 3

    Decontaminate the Surface and apply properly diluted disinfectant to the surface and leave it visible wet. Allow to air dry. Dispose of all waste; double-bag all towels, absorbents, and gloves and tie the bags closed. Dispose of the double-bagged materials in the garbage and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water. Disinfect Re-usable Equipment; any equipment used in this process should be disinfected with one of the properly diluted disinfectants.

  • Mold Remediation Process

    1

    Step 1

    The first step, build containment with negative air and contain the affected area. Hepa vacuum the loose mold spores and spray the mold area with biocide and wipe down with a rag. Respray the mold area with biocide; Biocide is an EPA-approved liquid which kills mold. Note that bleach is not approved by the EPA for killing mold.

    Typically, this first step should take less time than the second step. After the workers leave, the biocide goes to work, killing the mold spores in hard to reach places.

    2

    Step 2

    Next day, the mold remediation company returns, they spray the area with a type of paint or whitewash that encapsulates the remaining mold spores. The mold remediation company should spray well beyond the moldy area to ensure that no more mold grows.

    For example, if only a limited area of an attic exhibits mold, the mold remediation company will probably still spray down the entire attic. This is more desirable, and you should confirm with the company that they will do this

    3

    Step 3

    The remediation company will come back one last time and take down the containment, and pick up the air scrubber which is used to make negative air.

  • Fire Damage Restoration Process

    1

    Step 1

    Assess the damage done by the fire, let the home owner/site manager know what steps are going to be taken. Board up any windows or doors damaged by the fire or Firemen.

    2

    Step 2

    Pack out all the personal belongings that can be salvaged from the fire, the contents will be sent to be professionally cleaned. Contents will be packed in a box and each box will have an inventory sheet.

    If water damage is present a crew will be out to remove any standing water, and possibly demo any material that can be a hazard. Drying equipment will be placed if the site has electricity.

    3

    Step 3

    Smoke and soot is removed from all surfaces, any surface out of reach will be sprayed with an odor counteractant. Once the site is back to pre-loss condition, all the contents will be moved back to the site.

  • Water Mitigation Process

    1

    Step 1

    Walk through and assess the site with the home owner/site manager. Explain in detail what should be expected from us and what we expect from them. This also includes all the paper work that must be filled out by the client. Photos of the entire site will be taken for insurance purposes.

    2

    Step 2

    Move furniture out of the work area, any personal belonging affected or damaged by the loss will be documented. Extract heavy amounts of water if necessary, and possibly demo affected floors, ceiling, and walls which may have wet insulation, plywood, paneling, and/or vapor barrier behind it. Document materials that were removed during the demo.

    3

    Step 3

    Anti-Microbial will be sprayed to the affected areas, to prevent microbial growth. Drying equipment will be set, which usually consist of Dehumidifier, Fans, Air Scrubber, and Inject-A-Dry. Readings of the temperature, Relative Humidity, and moisture content in the affected materials will be taken. These reading must be taken every day until the affected area is dry or back to pre-loss conditions.

    Once the job is complete photos will be taken again, and the home owner/site manager takes a finial walk through and signs a certificate of satisfaction.

  • Board Up Process

    1

    Step 1

    Determine if any openings in the basement, first, & second floor doors and windows need to be barricaded.

    2

    Step 2

    Cut plywood to fit over the window and door openings, flush with outside of the molding.

    3

    Step 3

    Place the plywood over the exterior opening and nail/screw to the frame. (For metal frames place the plywood and braces inside the frame against the band molding).

  • Packing Process

    1

    Step 1

    Once the supervisor is onsite the Owner/Tenant gives us a walk through to survey the job site room by room. We will then come up with a game plan and fit you in our schedule.

    2

    Step 2

    The supervisor/lead technician then documents and evaluates all the furniture and personal content. A full itemization of your personal property will be done. A trained crew is used throughout the packing & loading process to handle your belongings with care.

    3

    Step 3

    When you are ready to move back into your current or new residence. We will schedule our team to pick up your personal belongings from our 24-hour secured facility which is climate controlled, and proceed to move your family back in.
