Coming into contact with hazardous material can certainly pose a health risk to you and your family. Whether it’s a risk stemming from something occurring inside your home or on your property, if something has happened, you may not know what to do to make the problem go away. If you’re dealing with hazardous material, the best thing to do is not to try to clean up the problem on your own and leave it to the professionals. If you need hazmat cleanup in San Diego, Hometown Restoration is here to help.

There are many different types of hazardous materials that you could come in contact with. Part of why it is called “hazmat” cleanup is the special protective suit that professionals need to wear as they clean up a spill or deal with exposure. This suit protects them from the biohazards or harmful agents they are coming in contact with, and this is why you should not try to handle these problems on your own – close contact could be very harmful.

Some of the hazards that you could potentially encounter, whether you rent or own, or as a business owner, could be asbestos, lead, foreign chemicals, sewage, animal waste, blood, tear gas, or biological waste. Other situations that could also be considered “hazmat” situations include crime scenes, meth labs or drug houses, or chemical spills. These should be avoided at all costs to contain the area, do testing to see what agents are at work, perform a full cleanup of the area, and retesting to ensure that the area is safe for you to reenter. We also perform a full cleaning and sanitization to wrap up each project.
