If a violent or traumatic event in your home or business has resulted in blood loss, the last thing you need to worry about is cleaning up the mess on your own. Not only is blood clean up a hazardous undertaking, but it can also be upsetting. Fortunately, Biohazard Response provides blood cleanup services in Orlando and throughout Central Florida so you don’t need to endure the cleanup process alone.
Exposure to dangerous blood pathogens is the most dangerous aspect of blood cleanup. Coming into close contact with blood can place someone at risk for hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, and other dangerous and possibly life-threatening diseases.
What to Do If You’re Exposed
If you were exposed to blood during or after the traumatic event, there is no way to tell if the person who bled out is infected with hepatitis, HIV, or other bloodborne pathogens. This means you must treat any exposure as a hazardous one, which requires you to:
- Flush and wash exposed mucous membranes, wounds, and skin sites that have been in contact with blood with soap and water
- If possible, ask for details about the exposed person to help your healthcare provider determine the appropriate treatment
- Seek an immediate evaluation from a qualified health care professional who is experienced in providing antiretroviral therapy
