What are Hepatitis B and C?

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) are both blood-borne viruses that cause damage to the liver. HCV causes the body to create scar tissue in the liver, which eventually leads to cirrhosis. HBV is a different virus that uses a DNA structure, which means it is more robust but also easier for the human body to clear on its own. Watch this video to learn more about HBV and HCV.

Hepatitis B and hepatitis C are common and dangerous blood-borne pathogens. If you have any amount of foreign blood in your home or business, hire blood cleanup experts in Orlando instead of cleaning up the mess yourself. Bringing in a biohazard cleanup crew will prevent your exposure to HBV, HCV, and other dangerous blood-borne pathogens.
