Decontamination


Decontamination

When one thinks of decontamination they often assume it merely includes hazardous waste, but the truth of the matter is a plethora of situations are applicable to this maintenance.

Disaster Aide is an effective, professional, and competent service to absolve any number of these circumstances swiftly.  We approach each scene of need with an adept sense of purpose, authority, and common sense.

But before we can adequately define what Disaster Aide is and what we stand for, it is important to understand both what decontamination is, and what it incorporates.

 

Types Of Decontamination

There is a vast array of incidents that need rectification in the form of decontamination, with some ‘more’ time sensitive in nature than others.  Even still, a seemingly less crucial circumstance does not necessarily dictate a relaxed, slow response.

Unfortunately, decontamination is beyond a luxury, and frequently can become life-threatening if not addressed appropriately.

Fire and smoke damage, tear gas, fingerprint dust removal, and asbestos abatement are just a subset of pertinent situations where decontamination is paramount.

Communicable disease infection control, water and sewer cleanup, and body fluid excretion also encompass areas which are most dangerous as far as their adverse effects.

Believe it or not, bird and rodent droppings and dead animal removal are just as menacing because they host so many deadly viruses.  While foul to the nose, it is what is inside that is most harmful to our bodies.

Lesser on the totem pole, and perhaps more common, are pet odor removal, vehicle decontamination, and lead paint removal.  Even though the potency varies depending on the niche, all need tending.

Disaster Aide is a multi-purpose fleet of talented, accomplished technicians who expunge every setting with an unflinching demeanor.  Our strength lies in our fortitude to abolish any number of the aforementioned scenes, as if each was our sole area of expertise.

 

Why Is Decontamination Important?

It goes without saying that ridding a space of its horrid odor is beneficial to us all, but decontamination is a fundamental aspect of maintaining proper health.

Asbestos, smoke, crime scene powder and tear gas all represent an imperative need for sanitizing, as all are inhabited by poisons and toxic elements that do not take kindly to our immune system.

Some of the scariest agents involved are those we cannot see, and because of this it is astute to dispose them through the use of Disaster Aide.

Besides just foreign impurities, decontamination can be life-saving in situations that include either sewage or death.  All kinds of treacherous components are found in infected water sources, and when an animal or otherwise is deceased, bacteria forms almost immediately.

We prepare for these situations with a steadfast response to rid the scene of negative elements and increase the probability that damaging factors will not return.

 

When Is Decontamination Time Sensitive?

The blunt answer to this question is always.  Things like decomposition and dirty water are more obvious in their beckoning, for the smell and appearance of them can be unbearable.

Simply put however, decontamination should always be carried out as quickly as possible.  The longer negative elements are left to fester, the more potential harm they will produce in the future.

Even things like vomit or urine seem non-threatening, but factors like setting, temperature and who or what produced them all matter.  For example, decontamination in an area that is widely populated must be put into motion without sparing a moment, for outbreak may be the consequence.

Any skepticism of how relevant decontamination is can be put to bed immediately when illustrating times that food or medicine are involved.  Thousands of dollars are at stake with the distribution of the fuel we put into our bodies, and infected items cost money, jobs, and sometimes lives.

This is especially true in hospitals and places where sanitizing is literally a daily exercise.  An area housing patients cannot ‘wait’ to decontaminate, as viruses and poisons don’t take a break for anyone.

Disaster Aide is abreast to every facet that may come into play, and because of that we are prepared to execute our strategies in no time.  There is no such thing as a small job, for even the tiniest of problems can expand into an event of unfathomable tragedy.

Disaster Aide is available to answer the call of service whenever and wherever the job takes us.

 

Why Let Disaster Aide Handle Your Decontamination?

It is easy for any company to boast about their accomplishments, but we let our handiwork speak for us.  Disaster Aide is far more equipped to confront these situations because of our exhaustive training and precision in this field.

We use state of the art cleaning agents, mostly formulated using special chemicals, and tools that most companies never dream of using.  This is so vital because without the proper ingredients to cleanse a scene, negative toxins will still remain after the maintenance.

Disaster Aide not only eliminates the current crisis, but prevents it from returning in the future.  It should also be recognized that our prowess isn’t the only thing we offer that civilians cannot.  State of the art equipment, including the use of top-notch quality personal protective equipment, and especially safety apparatus make us the most sensible solution.

A local business or willing individual can easily cross-contaminate a scene and in some cases make it even more potent and dangerous than before.

For those stubborn enough to engage in this process themselves, it wise to realize that for incidents that include airborne particles, we use specific vacuums to purify the air and eradicate all potential poisons that may linger.  When the lives of your family or employees are on the line, it is not something you want to leave to chance.

At Disaster Aide, we bequeath to you both our knowledge and passion, while performing each task promptly with focused accuracy.  We also proudly give you the opportunity to enjoy peace of mind, knowing that the circumstance is being dealt with by professionals that are error-free and concentrated in their response.

Disaster Aide ensures that decontamination is done once to avoid further complications.
