Frequently Asked Questions




Can't I just use my regular cleaning or janitorial service to
clean up blood or pathological waste?

Who pays for bio-recovery services?
Not unless your regular cleaning or janitorial service has been properly trained and equipped to handle bio-hazardous waste such as blood or body fluids, and has accepted mechanism in place to dispose of the recovered bio-hazardous waste.
Ultimately, the property owner is responsible for the cost of this service. In most cases, however, home, business or auto insurance will pay for bio-recovery services. If the victim has no insurance, the crime victim board may be in a position to authorize and pay for bio-recovery services




Can I have an employee of my business clean the scene?

  • Having a written BBP exposure plan
  • Having been provided personal protective equipment
  • Having been offered Hepatitis B vaccine and exposure
        evaluation and follow up
  • Being provided with a method to remove and properly store
        bio-hazardous waste in properly marked containers for
        disposal at an approved site.

    They are microorganisms such as viruses or bacteria that are carried in blood and can cause disease in people.
