Dos and Don’ts After A Contamination

What You Must Do after Contamination

In the case of any contamination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Keep out of the affected areas.
  • If the situation is life threatening, then call the emergency service personnel.
  • Avoid touching any bodily fluids and consider them to be contaminated.
  • If there is any sewage damage, turn off the HVAC system.


What You Shouldn’t Do after a Contamination

  • If the ceiling is wet, don’t turn on the ceiling fixtures and stay out of the rooms if the ceilings are sagging.
  • Do not use the vacuum cleaner to remove any water.
  • Don’t use any electrical appliances.
  • Don’t leave wet fabrics, books, magazines, etc. on the wet floors and carpets.


Bodily fluids, blood and other biohazardous materials can be hazardous for anyone who comes in contact with it — the trace amounts are so small that you cannot see them with your naked eye and can be a serious health risk. Cleaning up such a scene is dangerous and should be left to the experts with proper training and equipment.


Not only should the area been cleaned carefully, all the things removed from the scene must be disposed of in a proper manner to prevent the spreading of contamination and diseases. If the contaminated spaces are not cleaned, sanitized and restored properly, the unseen dangers can linger and cause problems in the future.
