Q Please Explain the Remediation Process.

Legally unable to shift the liability of proper biohazard remediation to another entity, property owners in need of biohazard remediation are subject to stiff fines, penalties and legal action if they fail to comply with a variety of OSHA (29 CFR1910.1030), EPA and state regulations that govern biohazard remediation.
Conducted by our highly trained, competent and certified technicians, ABRS-EAST’s remediation methodology is extremely specialized and very dynamic. This approach enables us to fine-tune every aspect if the remediation process so that we can accommodate for the specific needs and sensitivities of our clientele and purge related liabilities for the property owner.
As an ABRS-EAST client, you will be assigned a personal Remediation Liaison Aide (RLA) upon initial contact with us. Your RLA will competently and compassionately guide you through each step of the remediation process-whether it is a hoarding cleanup, crime and trauma scene or simply medical waste removal. Several aspects of the remediation process may include: determining a time line for remediation, managing needed contractors, coordinating with relevant public safety officials, establishing on-scene security and privacy needs and thoroughly explaining payment options.
Upon completion of the remediation process, you and your RLA will conduct a final tour of the job site. During this tour, each aspect of the remediation process that was undertaken will be reviewed.
