Biohazard Cleaning Dumfries-and-Galloway
We are open 24 hours, 7 days a week, year round including public and bank holidays. Christmas and New Year included.
For this reason, biohazard technicians must be well equipped with special training, knowledge, skills, and tools. Ranging from basic disinfection and sanitisation, to blood / body fluids cleanup or any types of trauma or unattended death cleaning following an accident, a suicide or a homicide, biohazard remediation can take anywhere from one hour to 40 hours or more, depending on the type of trauma and the amount of biohazardous material involved. Furthermore, given the nature of the business, technicians are often required to be on call 24/7. It is fair to say, biohazard cleans can be both physically and mentally demanding, and it is not the type of cleaning that your next-door carpet cleaner can do!

'My project was not declutter/hoarding, but to prepare a house for sale. Alison and her staff are very nice to work with and very efficient. They are well organised and have a very systematic approach for dealing with home properties by sorting items for sale, donation and disposal, as well as providing pick up for donation and disposal. I can't recommend them more!'
'Alison brought an incredible team to clear out my parents' home. I could not believe how efficient they were - years and years of clutter were handled quickly and professionally. They worked closely with us in terms of what could be tossed or saved and they got everything done in just two short days. On top of that, each and every person was positive and friendly. They are absolutely amazing! Worth every penny!'
'My dear friend had passed away tragically and his apartment of 30+ years was filled with eclectic items from around the world. Since my friend's family was overseas and couldn't come to the UK, I wanted to make sure that jewellery, photos and money were retrieved so I could give it back to the family. Not only did they help me retrieve what was needed but they also gave me their honest opinions about how best to move forward. They made this burdensome process light and cheerful. Thank you Biohazard Cleaning PRO!'
'I had a dead rodent smell which was getting worse every day and it appears to be coming from between the walls. I tried various neutralising air fresheners but all were useless and only mask the smell with its own fragrance. Called Biohazard Cleaning PRO and got some good advice and a clear quotation on the day. Booked their service and after 2 days the smell was completely gone! Can't recommend more!'
'Had recently been putting up with a foul smell which we finally realised must have been something decomposing and coming from underneath the floorboards. It was particularly bad when the heating was on. Contacted Biohazard Cleaning PRO through sheer desperation. The team arrived quickly and to my amazement, within 24 hours the smell was almost gone! Would definitely use their services again if needed.'
'Biohazard Cleaning is a superb company. For many years they have looked after our large residential estate and our school. The team are extremely friendly and responsive. No job is too much trouble for them. They are really the expert in their field. You won't regret hiring them.'
'Mark was amazing! Very professional and went the extra mile to explain everything in detail which really reassured us. Sorted the problem quickly and discreetly. Very happy with the service. Thanks to Marie and her team, we can now enjoy our pigeon-poop-free balcony again.'
'Mark and his team did a fantastic job to clean our concrete driveway that had been visited by a group of pigeons. I was amazed by their attention to details and have found their services reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a value for money.'
'We had an emergency situation uncovered in one of the bathrooms. We called Biohazard Cleaning PRO and the team arrived in less than half an hour. They dealt with the scene in such an efficient and effective manner that our business got barely disrupted. Thumbs up guys!'
'It was a very challenging time for me and my family but the team did such an amazing job with my parents' house. Thank you for all what you've done. My gratitude is beyond words.'
'This is the third time I use Biohazard Cleaning PRO to disinfect my car. Even though the person who did the job changed each time, the work quality and the experience remain consistently outstanding.'
'We need an urgent house disinfection as one of our flatmates was diagnosed with Covid-19. I was amazed how fast the team responded and came over. They cleaned every corner of our house with professional gears and yet the cost for the entire process was just a fraction of the quoted prices from other companies. I highly recommend them!'
'We have been using the specialist team from Biohazard Cleaning PRO in our clinic, surgery, and recovery to sterilise the rooms following our patients with contagious diseases. They are simply amazing! No matter how big or small the work scope is, they remain fully dedicated without compromising the quality of their work. I appraise their extremely meticulous work ethic.'
