Biohazard

A biological agent or condition that is a hazard to humans or the environment. Often, this biological waste is pathogenic in nature or contaminated in some way. Biohazard also includes infectious agents that present a risk or potential health risk. Biohazard can be found in water damaged buildings where bacteria is present because of a sewage backflow or where fungi is allowed to grow, and the condition eventually affects the health of the building’s occupants.

Biohazards must be eliminated by professionals. If improperly handled, bacteria, viruses and fungi can cause serious health effects. In addition, if improperly handled, the contaminate will most likely still present in the building, causing a higher risk of exposure to the occupants.
