Frequently Asked Questions

Proper decontamination is important to protect yourself, your family, friends, employees or clients by destroying these viruses. Furthermore, failure to properly clean and decontaminate the scene can lead to severe odors. Here are some frequently asked questions about our services.

Bowdecon will respond to emergencies 24/7. We depart as expediently as possible, usually soon after we get the call. If the client prefers, we will set a time that will better fit their schedule.
A: In most cases, your home owner’s, business or auto insurance will reimburse you or pay us directly for the costs of biohazard remediation, though each insurance company and policy varies.

You will want to contact your insurance claims department for verification (we can help you with that, if you wish). Some locations are covered by Victim’s Aid Services, which help defray the costs. Tenants may be liable, but ultimately, the responsibility falls to the property owner.
A: Every incident is unique and an inspection of the scene is necessary before we (or anyone) can give you an accurate estimate.
A: Our technicians have been trained and certified to properly remove, decontaminate and legally dispose of potentially infectious waste. Quite often, body fluids collect beneath surfaces and are not visible to the untrained eye. We will find and decontaminate all areas exposed to bloodborne pathogens and biohazardous/infectious materials.
A: OSHA’s Bloodborne Pathogen Standard 29 CFR 1910.1030 states that employees must be provided with information and training prior to dealing with blood or other potentially infectious material, including having a signed contract with an approved medical waste disposal company. ONLY if your business complies with these actions and 29 CFR 1910.1030, can you allow an employee to clean up a trauma scene. Due to the risks involved with exposure to such pathogens, most insurance companies recommend clean-up by a trained professional.

A: No. Per Federal Regulation 29 CFR 1910.1030, only service providers that have received
specialized training, have been properly equipped to handle biohazardous waste, have
mechanisms in place to properly dispose of the recovered waste and deal with any possible
exposures, may provide these services.

A: Some blood-borne pathogens can survive outside the human body for long periods of time.
For example:

  • AIDS virus (HIV) – up to 48 hours
  • Hepatitis B – 2 to 8 weeks
