Proper Removal of Biohazard Materials Keeps Mission Valley Safe

4/7/2020 (Permalink)

Two syringes are shown laying on a light blue surface. San Diego can take advantage of our specialty cleaning services.

According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), millions of Americans use “sharps” or medical devices with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut the skin to manage their health at home or while traveling. They are used to manage medical conditions for people and pets such as allergies, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, infertility, migraines, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, blood clotting disorders and psoriasis. Medical devices like needles, syringes, lancets, auto injectors, infusion sets, and connection needles and sets are used every day and sometimes are not properly disposed of. This poses health risks to anyone who may come in contact with these instruments. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants San Diego residents to know that if you come across sharps that have not been properly disposed of by using an FDA-cleared sharps container, we want to help. If you are accidentally stuck by a used needle or other sharp the FDA suggests:

  1. Wash the exposed area right away with water and soap or use a skin disinfectant (antiseptic) such as rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.
  2. Seek immediate medical attention by calling your physician or local hospital.

SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East has a team of highly trained professionals on call to properly dispose of sharps and provide cleanup and restoration services to your home or business 24 hours a day.  Call us at 619-303-3599 to find out about our biohazard and other specialty cleaning services.   We’ll clean and restore your property “Like it never even happened.”

Did you know that preventative measures can be taken to minimize damage to your home or business before vandalism or graffiti damage occurs?  According to The Project for Public Spaces, “vandal proofing” is a type of preventative measure that involves coating vulnerable surfaces to resist damage. Two common categories are “barrier” and “sacrificial” coatings. Barrier coatings are permanent coatings painted on clean surfaces to make future graffiti easier to remove. Sacrificial coatings are removable coatings painted onto a clean wall so that graffiti can be easily removed along with the protective coating. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East wants San Diego residents and business owners to know that we are ready to quickly respond to remove vandalism and graffiti from homes and commercial businesses.

Prepare for Storms

heavy rain on cyclist When heavy rains cause a lot of damage, SERVPRO of Mission Valley East is Here To Help.

San Diego seems to have only two kinds of weather: perfect or scary. SERVPRO® of Mission Valley East offers these tips to prepare for storms and floods. For more detail, see the Metro web site for storm emergencies or the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guide for business owners.

Preparation Notes for San Diego

  • Have an evacuation route and a set meeting place that everyone knows how to reach
  • Move trash cans, debris, or other materials away from storm drains
  • Register with the power companies if a family member relies on on powered equipment (such as respiratory aids)
  • Make easily-located emergency kits for people and pets
  • Business owners/managers need to have the numbers of their suppliers
  • Check whether your property is in a flood zone

Storms can lead to water damage with or without flooding. Even a small amount of water allows the rapid growth of mold, and both water damage and mold get more severe very rapidly. SERVPRO of Mission Valley East promises to be Faster to any size disaster for that reason; we aim to mitigate mold damage before it gets worse, restore storm or water damage, and prevent further damage. 

When fire and water take control of your life,

we help you take it back.
