How to Choose the Right Biohazard Cleanup Company to Help When You Need It

When you are looking to hire a biohazard cleanup company, you may be searching only for a company that services your area. While proximity is important, there are many other important factors to consider so you hire the right team to help. You will want to check if the company has proper insurance, great reviews online, if they follow the proper disposal protocols for all waste, and if their fees will be covered by your insurance. Below, we’ve broken down some of the ways you can vet the companies you are deciding between so you can feel confident you made the right selection.

 Reputation matters

 Almost every internet user reads and considers online reviews when deciding to make a purchase, visit a store, hire a contractor, or book a table at a restaurant. In fact, in 2021, 93% of users admitted that online reviews had an impact on their buying decisions. When it comes to biohazard cleaning, reviews may even be more critical, because you are trusting the safety and sanitation of your space (often your home) in the hands of these professionals. When deciding who to hire, it’s important that you not only read reviews on their Google Business page, but you may also want to consider typing the company’s name into Google along with the word “complaints” to see if there are any red flags that pop up.

Reputation doesn’t just come in the form of 5-star reviews and great testimonials online, but it is also important that the company has the proper documentation, policies, and protocols. Make sure that the biohazard cleaning company you hire is registered with the secretary of the state and has proper insurance. 

 Proper disposal matters

 Just because a company claims to be an experienced biohazard cleanup company, doesn’t mean that they necessarily have all the proper training and expertise. You’ll want to ask ahead of time what their procedure is for disposing of medical waste, and make sure they have a thorough plan that includes clearly marked bio boxes, proper disposal of medical waste with red bio bags (two in some states), and a destruction manifest. 

 Check if they are an approved preferred vendor

 Finally, after you’ve done your due diligence to ensure the company you are looking to hire is reputable, has good standards and procedures in place, and services your area, you will want to do one last check to see how the payment can be covered. It’s important that you make sure that your insurance company works with the company you choose. You’ll want to ask the representative from the biohazard company about their experience working with insurance companies and do your homework, so you gain peace of mind that the bill won’t be a surprise on your end.
