We at SafeGuard, know that blood cleanup after an accident, crime or other traumatic event creates anxiety, stress and emotional heartache for victims and their families. Our professional restoration specialists are sensitive to the needs of home and business owners and take great care in ensuring our blood cleanup services are quick and thorough with as little disruption as possible.
Proper blood cleanup involves removal of the blood, as well as stain removal, odor neutralization and thoroughly disinfecting the area to prevent exposure to blood borne pathogens.
The Threat of Blood Borne Pathogens
Blood borne pathogens are germs that cause disease. They live and travel in the blood spreading the disease throughout the body and to others. The most commonly transmitted and most dangerous blood borne pathogens are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B and C. It is possible for other illnesses and diseases living in the blood to be transmitted to another person unknowingly through an open wound.
In addition to the health risks from the blood directly, exposed blood attracts flies, rats, mice and other unwanted pests that feed on blood. These pests also carry and spread diseases and create an even more unsanitary environment. We properly disinfect, sanitize and remove traces of blood that could spread disease and attract pests.
Blood Clean-up Procedures
We know that emotions are high after a traumatic event and take great care in treating personal items with respect. We do our best to salvage and restore all items affected by the blood spill. When items are unable to be cleaned safely and effectively, we treat them as biohazard materials and dispose of them safely.
At SafeGuard, we want your family, your home, your business and your environment to be safe, which is why we take the extra steps to ensure all traces of blood are removed and the affected areas are thoroughly disinfected. For large blood cleanup jobs, this could involve removing sections of carpet, floorboards or drywall to ensure there are no remaining traces of blood.

Our team works quickly and discreetly with respect to your privacy and personal lives. Our blood cleanup specialists are professional, compassionate and helpful every step of the way. We want to help relieve your stress, not add to it.
