When there is a homeowners insurance policy involved, there will be minimal or no cost to you. Situations involving biohazard are covered under most homeowners policies. Central Oregon Bio Solutions will waive up to the first $1000 of the homeowners policy deductible. When a job is not covered by insurance, we will give you a quote in advance and work on a sliding scale to accomodate all budgets.
Central Oregon Bio Solutions considers a few key factors when providing a quote. The cost is determined by the number of technicians necessary to be on site, the total hours required to do the job, the amount of biohazard needing proper disposal, and the cost of supplies needed to complete the cleaning process.
First, dangers associated with exposure to Blood Borne Pathogens in the case of a Biohazard cleanup are real. There are many ways that diseases can be transferred through casual contact with human blood and even blood that has dried still creates a serious health risk. Second, Proper disposal of Biohazard is important so that there will be no unnecessary exposure for anyone post cleanup. Additionally, no one should have to take on the emotional weight of cleaning up after a traumatic situation involving a family member, friend or co-worker. Allowing a trained professional to clean up a scene involving Biohazard will ensure your safety, expedite the healing process for those affected and ensure that all biohazard waste will be disposed of properly.

There will often be well-meaning friends and or family members that will want to help in the event of a tragedy. While it’s commendable to want to help, it is not advisable for several reasons.
1. The scene will not likely be cleaned up properly. Biohazard can be difficult to detect in many cases and a Biohazard Company has the proper tools, knowledge and chemicals to properly remediate the scene.
2. Biohazard will not be disposed of properly. Proper disposal of Biohazard means it will not end up in a landfill but will be incinerated as Medical Waste.
3. There is quite often more Biohazard than can be seen with the naked eye. Biohazard fluids can often saturate carpet, padding and subfloor and in extreme cases can travel distances that would not be naturally anticipated.
