THE NEW

Halo Disinfection System®

The Halo Disinfection System includes the choice of two proprietary hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectants, each created to provide effective results against today’s disinfection challenges. Both healthcare-grade products are EPA-approved for use on hard, pre-cleaned, non-porous, non-food surfaces, and are bleach and PAA free. HaloMist™, is the first ever EPA-validated disinfectant fogging solution proven to kill 99.9999% of C. diff spores and is approved for whole-room disinfection. HaloSpray™ Multi-Purpose Surface Disinfectant is a broad-spectrum formula perfect for spot disinfection of surfaces that need to be sprayed or wiped, or used for adjunct fogging treatments.

The Halo Disinfection System also includes the HaloFogger™; a user-friendly, dry mist-dispensing device that delivers aerosolized disinfectant reaching into every nook, crevice and corner in a room to kill disease-causing pathogens where they hide.

This decontamination technology is ideal for homes, offices, aircraft, ships, emergency service vehicles, law enforcement vehicles, food trucks, trauma centers, examination rooms, hospital waiting rooms, patient rooms, clean rooms, food preparation centers, fitness centers, detention cells, funeral homes, medical examiner offices, schools, day care centers, assisted living centers, shipping containers, kennels and much more.

TESTIMONIALS

Going through the experience of losing someone is tough enough but coping with the loss of a loved one and navigating the most difficult task of dealing with a biohazard event associated with this loss is more than anyone can even imagine. It is tough enough but a situation such as this takes you into a new realm of reality I hope many never need to know about. If they do I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ABS! My safety and compliance officer, Anil Lartius, was not only by my side helping me through each and every unknown, scary step, he also became a friend through the process. Truly I would not have made it through without Anil and ABS. To further complicate things not only was this entire event very difficult but the insurance company we were dealing with was not very reputable and they fought the 40-page claim forms submitted with full photo coverage and every “T” crossed and “I” dotted. As you can imagine this was an awful experience. It was exasperated by a year and a half long litigation that ABS never relented on and I am pleased to tell you the claim was settled in full due to ABS’s due diligence and the excellent job done by Anil and team. Forever grateful to Anil and the ABS team.

    24 Hour Crime Scene Cleanup in St. Petersburg

    People prepare for all kinds of disasters, but almost no one is prepared for encountering a trauma scene. The aftermath of a trauma scene is not only upsetting to the general public but poses significant risks to life and health. Tissue, blood, and other bodily fluids can quickly spread infection and disease unless decontaminated and disposed of properly.

    The team at Advanced BioRecovery Solutions is licensed, insured, and certified in HAZMAT remediations. Our services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Advanced BioRecovery specializes in dead body cleanup, blood cleanup, homicide cleanup, suicide cleanup, general crime scene cleanup, and meth, Fentanyl and tear gas residue recovery in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our team is skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate, working tirelessly to decontaminate crime scene areas.

    Biohazard Cleanup

    Pathogens can cause a significant public health hazard when not handled correctly, which is why it is imperative to leave such dangers to the experts. Advanced BioRecovery Solutions prescribes to biohazard cleanup and HAZMAT regulations, standards, methods and practices to prevent additional damage to property from occurring, expedite the remediation process and safeguard the client and the general public. ABS employs avant-garde remediation technologies to efficiently recover biohazard and HAZMAT contamination and decontaminate spaces affected by these hazards. Harmful pathogens can cause significant damage following the outbreak of a disease, a death, or an accident. Advanced BioRecovery Solutions serves St. Petersburg businesses, hospitals, and law enforcement providing effective, professional biohazard cleanup services.

     

    Drug Paraphernalia Crime Scene Cleanup

    Crime scene cleanup is not limited to death and trauma scenes. Advanced BioRecovery Solutions specializes in the safe cleanup of dangerous drug residue, to include Fentanyl and Meth, and drug paraphernalia that may be contaminated with infectious and or HAZMAT materials – including needles and pipes, that could be dangerous to the client and the general public.

     

    Meth Residue Recovery and Decontamination

    Unfortunately, methamphetamine use has become an epidemic across the United States. Meth labs produce six pounds of hazardous toxic waste for every one pound of methamphetamine produced, as well as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from meth residue, which bind to both porous and non-porous surfaces. VOCs can be extremely dangerous for anyone exposed to it, with children and those with compromised immune systems, especially being at risk. Advanced BioRecovery Solutions specializes in meth cleanup, reducing the chances of cancer, breathing difficulties, and other health concerns arising from exposure to VOCs.

    ABS utilizes a comprehensive and proven four step process to safely recover and decontaminate meth-contaminated surfaces.

     

    Fentanyl Residue Recovery and Decontamination

    Fentanyl and its analogues like Carfentanil are at epidemic proportions. These drugs are often used as cutting agents for heroin or other illicit drugs with deadly consequences.

    Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, up to 100 times more potent than morphine. Carfentanil, a fentanyl analogue, is 10,000 times stronger than morphine. A small amount of any one of these drugs (a few grains in significant quantity to cover a date on a penny), ingested or absorbed into the human body can be lethal.

    ABS utilizes a comprehensive and proven three-component Fentanyl and Carfentanil decontamination solution. Live-agent testing has demonstrated that the ABS decontamination solution is capable of 100% neutralization of Fentanyl & Carfentanil in under 5 minutes, 100% neutralization of Sulfur Mustard (HD) in less than 2 minutes, 100% neutralization of Soman (GD) in 5 minutes, and approximately 95% neutralization of Methylphosphonothioic Acid (VX) in 15 minutes with no toxic byproducts observed.

     

    The ABS Fentanyl and Carfentanil decontamination solution is neutral pH, non-corrosive and requires a low volume application to achieve maximum efficacy. These attributes ensure this solution is compatible with nearly all materials

    Lethal dose.

    Blood Cleanup

    Incorrect blood cleanup increases the risk of contracting blood-related infectious diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis, Ebola, viral hemorrhagic fever and a number of other pathogens. Pathogens can live in both liquid and dried blood outside of the body for hours, days and in the right conditions, weeks. The experienced team at Advanced BioRecovery Solutions employs avant-guard blood cleanup containment, recovery, decontamination and regulated disposal methods. ABS prescribes to protocols prescribed by OSHA, EPA, ABRA, IICRC, NIDS, FL DOH, US DOT, and HAZWOPER to ensure safe and successful blood cleanup.

    No matter whether you live in the St. Petersburg area, enlisting the help of Advanced BioRecovery Solutions, a certified, insured and licensed professional remediation company, will ensure your safety, as well as the safety of others.

    If blood cleanup is necessary on your property, speak with a member of our insurance claims team. ABS biohazard and HAZMAT cleanup services are often covered by property insurance. Our claims team works diligently to ensure that our clients receive fair and just insurance benefits.

    Dead Body Cleanup

    The healing process around tragic events, like an unattended death, can be complicated by the stress of trying to find a reputable biohazard remediation company to address the physical aftermath of the death. Often the client is under duress to locate a qualified company as late discoveries are time-sensitive dynamic events, continuing to cause damage to the building’s structure and personal content. Properties adjoining or near your property may also be affected.

    This type of death presents unique biohazard risks and exposures. Unattended death, also called late discovery or decomposition, is one of the most serious and invasive biohazard exposures that can occur in a building.

    When a person dies, decomposition begins immediately, releasing potentially harmful microbial organisms (viruses & bacteria), spores and unpleasant organic and oily vapor into immediate and surrounding areas of a residence or business. Cross-contamination increases exponentially with the involvement of insect activity and their associated metamorphosis processes. Insect activity in combination with body size and weight, clothing, digestive tract content, surface on which the body rests, cause of death, pH, oxygen levels, water, heat, and humidity accelerate the decomposition process.

    Many individuals, the public, law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire rescue, medical examiner personnel, crime scene investigators and other officials who come in contact with the deceased are still unclear about, or miscalculate infectious risks associated with dead bodies and decomposition. The result, necessary precautions to minimize exposure risks and prevent cross-contamination are not employed or employed improperly. Poorly trained or untrained biohazard companies are not exempt. These companies may fail to understand and / or identify biohazard exposure risks and use inappropriate cross-contamination, PPE, recovery and decontamination protocols, placing the safety of their employees, the client and the community in jeopardy.

    Biohazard remediations by nature are high-risk operations. Hiring an ill-equipped and uninsured biohazard company can expose you to unnecessary liability and health hazards. Ensure the company you hire is trained, certified, licensed by Department of Health to generate and transport biohazardous materials, and carries Workers Compensation, General Liability, Professional Liability and Pollution insurance. A reputable company will also conduct regular employee background checks and maintain a Surety Bond. Where property insurance is concerned it is important to note that the Insurer does not always take these factors into consideration when recommending biohazard companies to the policyholder. For this reason, the policyholder must perform due diligence to ensure the biohazard company selected meets these requirements. Remember your rights, the policyholder selects the remediation company, not the Insurer.

    Our trained and certified biohazard professionals will remediate body decomposition and odor with dignity, respect and professionalism, restoring the affected residence or business to an inhabitable pre-loss state.

    Homicide Cleanup

    The violent, unexpected death of a family member, friend, coworker or employee is one of the most traumatic experiences a person can face, and it prompts a wide range of emotional reactions.

    We recognize the sudden, devastating circumstances brought on by homicide and the impact it has on you, our clients. Forever altered, Co-victims (Survivors of homicide) can be left emotionally numb, coping with the shock, and in a state of profound sadness, disbelief and anger. The grief can be disabling. Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Survivor guilt and other problems can manifest, where extreme anxiety, fear, nightmares and intrusive thoughts may remain constant for weeks or months. Adding to this emotional stress, our clients must deal with the physical aspects of the homicide; remediation and cleanup.

    Emergency responders and law enforcement have just left your home or premises and you feel overwhelmed about what to do next, a normal response to emotional duress and personal loss. You may feel compelled by the pressure of the moment to call someone, anyone, to help you. A rapid response to remediate the biohazard is critical. A delay may cause additional property damage, elevate risk for exposure to dangerous pathogens and increase the complexity of the clean, resulting in higher costs to complete the operation. However, this is the time to take a moment, to learn the facts and consider your choices.
