Biohazards come in a variety of forms ranging from unattended death, trauma and suicide. On thing that they all have in common is bodily fluid.
What are body fluids?
They are liquids that have originated from within the body of human beings. Things like blood, urine, sweat, faeces etc. It is these bodily fluids which can pose serious biohazard risks and are a prime transmission point if not cleaned properly.
Human death and workplace accident cleaning are two common places where bodily fluid cleaning is required.
At Balmore Contracting, we are one of the leading biohazard cleaning contractors in Scotland dealing with Suicide, Trauma, Unattended Death, Workplace Accident and Police Cell biohazard cleaning (to name just a few).

Biohazard risks caused by bodily fluids
There are many pathogens, viruses and bacteria that can breed and grow in bodily fluid. From less serious colds and flus to more serious illnesses and diseases including norovirus, AIDS, HIV and Hepatitis. While the risk increases and decreases depending on a variety of factors ranging from location to quantity of biohazard and even what level of PPE a user is wearing.
