When cleaning a scene, professionals create three distinct zones with biohazard tape and plastic sheeting. The clean area provides a place for them to store their equipment, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The buffer zone offers a secure area for them to do their personal protective equipment. The actual scene that needs to be cleaned in San Antonio is referred to as the control zone.
Once the sections have been established, restoration professionals get to work, eliminating bio-hazards using a three-step process. In the cleaning phase, they remove blood, biological materials, dirt, and chemical residues. They also take out any materials that cannot be salvaged, disposing of them as medical waste. The sanitization phase comes next. Here, technicians spray a sanitizing foam over any affected surfaces. This foaming is repeatedly done until adenosine triphosphate fluorescence testing verifies that the area has been thoroughly sanitized. In the final phase, technicians use deodorizing agents to remove any odors.
