For years your single sister has not allowed you to step foot in her house. She always makes the oddest excuses. You have wondered about it at times, but you have always waved it off, knowing her to be a rather private person. Until one day, another strange excuse, and your curiosity gets the best of you. You push past her through the front door and stumble into a huge mess! Old take-out cartons, dirty dishes, and half eaten sandwiches cover the floor. The walls are lined from floor to ceiling with boxes, lamps, and every other kind of house hold item one can imagine. The odor in the house turns your stomach, and you race for the door, dragging your sister out after you. You know you need to help her- the home is unsanitary and must be thoroughly cleaned. But you are shocked and embarrassed, and feelings of helplessness and panic over the enormity of the situation threaten to overwhelm you. We understand and are here to help!
This type of situation is considered a biological hazard, and we know biohazards well. A biohazard is a biological agent or condition that is a hazard to humans or the environment, and can include hoarding and filth, unattended or undiscovered death, animal infestation and decomposition, and suicide scenes. Like fire damage, biohazard incidences can be devastating to a home or business owner. Not only are there physical conditions that must be remediated for the safety of the residents, but there is also a myriad of emotions that come into play, especially in tragic circumstances. The licensed and insured technicians at Joe Taylor Restoration are trained in how best to deal with biohazards, and will approach each instance with sensitivity, sympathy, and professionalism. One call will result in the expertise and considerable resources necessary to remedy the situation and restore your property to its original condition.
The well-trained team of technicians at Joe Taylor Restoration is ready to answer your call immediately, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We promise to respond promptly to your biohazard emergency. Our professionals will assess the damage, identifying immediate areas of concern, and determine the best course of action.
Joe Taylor Restoration is properly licensed by the State of Florida to provide biohazard remediation services. We also carry Pollution Insurance, which is hard to acquire and more expensive than the standard General Liability Insurance. Most biohazard remediation companies do not carry this type of insurance, but we feel it is necessary to ensure your safety and peace of mind.
Though the recovery process for biohazard situations can vary greatly depending on the type and extent of the biological threat, our technicians are fully trained to handle remediation under all circumstances. Once the service agreement has been signed and the scene has been assessed, we will utilize the appropriate supplies and equipment to start the biohazard recovery and decontamination. At this time, the scene will be cordoned off and it will have limited access.
Proper decontamination may call for the removal and disposal of materials such as tiles, dry-wall, base boards, linoleum, carpet, lamp shades, couches, chairs, etc. Therefore, it will be very important for the property owner(s) to point out any items that they may want to save so that our team can work hard to preserve them at the outset. In other instances, many of these same materials may be professionally decontaminated, sanitized and sealed. Severe odors may remain even after decontamination and sanitization, and hydroxyls or ozone processes may be required for additional deodorization.
Joe Taylor Restoration is fully committed to the best possible customer service. Therefore, our technicians will explain in detail every step of the recovery process as it pertains to your property. We will also clearly report our findings to you and your insurance carrier in a timely manner. A comprehensive estimate, including photographs and properly completed paperwork, will be communicated to the agent or adjuster within 48 hours of job completion.
