Before attempting to clean up a blood spill, it's very important to be certain that all the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is used to keep you safe.  And remember, even though you're wearing PPE, it's still important to use caution while cleaning up body fluids.  Do your best to avoid getting blood on your PPE and periodically inspect your PPE for any rips or tears.  Use this checklist prior to making contact with any blood.

  • Disinfecting Chemical.  A bleach / water solution works well (1 part bleach, 9 parts water).
  • Thick, highly absorbent paper towels or rags.
  • Kitty litter works well for absorbing bigger blood spills.
  • Utilize a scooper or scraper.
  • ​Red biohazard bags, tape, and boxes.

Cleanup Supplies For Blood Spills

Cleaning Up Blood On Hard Surfaces

For heavily blood saturated areas, use kitty litter to soak up the bulk of the body fluids.  Then use a scoop or scraper to shovel the kitty litter into biohazard bags.  When the bulk of the blood is contained, saturate the area with your disinfectant chemical.  Allow the disinfectant to soak for several minutes before wiping up the blood.  After there is no more visible blood, apply your disinfecting chemical to the already cleaned surface, allow it to sit for several minutes, and wipe away.  This ensures thorough decontamination of any potential bloodborne hazards.

Most people don't realize the risk involved when attempting to clean up a biohazardous threat themselves.  There are many infectious diseases that can survive outside of the body for several weeks unless properly disinfected.  There is no need to risk possible exposure to communicable diseases, blood borne pathogens, infectious bacteria, etc.  Hazmat Cleanup is licensed with the Department of Health and is trained to incorporate OSHA guidelines into the cleanup of blood and sanitation of any biohazard or bodily fluids.

Blood is considered a biohazard and there are regulations on how to transport and dispose of it in the state of Florida.  By law, the vehicle that will be transporting the biohazardous waste must be registered with the Department of Health and the company must be licensed to transport and generate biomedical waste.  Body fluids should be contained in clearly labeled biohazard bags.  These bags must be sealed and placed into biohazard boxes on which a label must be attached including the business name, address, and four digit Department of Health number.  These boxes can then be transported to a biohazard waste disposal facility where it is usually either incinerated or steamed for sterilization.
