Disclosing death when selling a home

If buying or selling a home in Raleigh, Durham or the surr  is in your future, you're likely well versed the entire process from the initial offer to closing. But are you aware that disclosing a death in the home may be required? Here's what you need to know. 

 

Property Disclosure Documents

No matter how perfect a house looks on the outside, there is often property information a buyer needs to disclose before the sale can go through. Property disclosure documents reveal known structural issues, neighborhood nuisances, hazards, HOA details, water damage, notable repairs made to the home and death in the home. 

 

Rules for reporting a death in the home vary by state, and variations in rules may include:

  • Timeframe: When the death occurred. 
  • How the person passed away: If the death occurred naturally versus due to negligence on the property.
  • Hauntings: If the seller has knowledge that the property is being haunted by the dead. 

 

So what are the rules in North Carolina? Here are the details:

 

 
North Carolina is a 'Buyer Beware' state, meaning it is your responsibility as a buyer to do your due diligence and know everything possible about what you are buying… the seller is under no obligation based on our NC Purchase contract to make any repairs. Properties are sold 'As-Is' unless negotiated otherwise.

For a state by state guide on disclosure laws we recommend visiting this resource on Nolo.com

 

Remediating After a Death in a Home

If a death recently occurred in the home you're hoping to purchase, there may have been biohazards from bloodborne pathogens that required remediation. Consider asking the seller how the death was remediated to ensure proper steps were taken. Remediation processes may vary depending on the location of the death, how the death occurred, types of flooring, and if the death was undiscovered for days or weeks. 

 

Bio-One technicians are trained and equipped to properly disinfect biohazards from bloodborne pathogens, and we ensure safe biohazard material handling and disposal. Once the entire area is cleaned of blood and body fluids, we also help property owners restore the location to its pre-incident state. 

 

If you are selling a home and need a biohazard remediated or want to ensure remediation was done correctly, give Bio-One a call. Our experts not only contain and disinfect the dangerous biological materials, we carry out our work in a caring and private manner.

Here is just one of the many community members in the Raleigh - Durham area we’ve had the pleasure to help. 

 

Positive: Professionalism, Quality

Great job! Rick responded quickly and did a walk-through and estimate. The techs arrived on time and worked hard all day. They were thorough and very professional. We were getting a family member’s home ready for sale and they stayed until the job was perfect. I definitely would call them again!

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Morgan and his clean up team are incredible! We had a difficult hoarding situation to manage in a short period of time and they went above and beyond. They were kind and efficient. I would recommend them highly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To even know where to begin to start cleaning up a hoarded or cluttered home, it is important to develop a routine. Follow these tips to get started.

 

PICK UP TRASH

 

The first step is to pick up trash. Take a trash bag with you and walk around the house. Be sure to go through each room and pick up trash. You know how it can be, things pile up if you don't stay on top of them. Carrying a trash bag with you helps rid of the non-essential items quickly. Try to stay focused on picking up trash. Do not do any cleaning yet. This is your "first pass" through the house. Immediately take the filled trash bags to the trash can or dumpster.

 

PICK UP DISHES & CUPS

 

After you dispose of the trash, go through and pick up any lose dishes or cups sitting around the house. Don't worry about cleaning them, just put them in the sink or dishwasher directly. This will help you consolidate the clutter into one area that you can clean later.

 

PICK UP LAUNDRY

 

Take a laundry basket and start picking up dirty laundry. Do a sweep of the house and deposit laundry by the washer and dryer. You could even start of load of laundry while you are cleaning; just don't forget to put it into the dryer once it is finished.

 

Now, take the empty laundry basket or a box or basket and use it to pick up clutter and items that have been left out. It doesn't matter how you do it, just do it. You may start picking up items that you no longer need. You could even start a donation box.

 

MOVE ROOM BY ROOM

 

Once the initial pass-through is done, focus on doing a room-by-room clean up. Take a storage box with you and pick up items that don't belong in that room. Once you have decluttered the room, start straightening things up - make the bed or tidy up couch cushions.

 

Once the room is picked up, use this opportunity to dust. Leave the kitchen to last so this gives you a spot to consolidate cleaning products and trash.

 

VACCUM EACH ROOM

 

Now that the dust has settled in each room from your dusting efforts and no obstacles are littering the floors (trash, toys, dishes, and clothes), the next step is to vacuum the entire house. Vacuum room by room and be sure to change out the vacuum bag or empty the chamber (depending on the type of vacuum cleaner you own).

 

CLEAN THE BATHROOM

 

Wipe down the sinks and counters with a disinfecting cleaner and use glass cleaner on the mirrors, if needed. Clean the shower or bathtub with a spray. Sometimes you can even spray this down and let it work while you clean another place in the house, then come back and rinse. Clean the toilet using a toilet bowl product that dissolves without any actual work. Let it bubble up in the toilet, then flush. Hold off on mopping the floor while you are cleaning the bathroom. Save this task for the very end after you’ve cleaned the kitchen and then mop both the bathroom and kitchen at the same time.

 

CLEAN THE KITCHEN

 

By now, you’ve moved through the entire house. It is time to clean the kitchen! To start, put away all clean dishes or empty the dishwasher if it is clean. Pick up any loose items on the counter like stacks of mail or bills. Once things are put away, work on cleaning the dirty dishes, or loading the dishwasher. With the counters clear, you can wipe them down with a disinfecting counter-safe cleaner. Wipe down the stovetop and the microwave. Now get out your mop or steam cleaner and clean the kitchen floor and the bathroom floor.

Accidents involving blood pose serious health risks. Improper blood cleanup can result in serious consequences to you and those around you. Whether you work for at a school and are asked to clean up after a bloody nose or if you are an EMT volunteer who is faced with cleaning and bandaging an open wound, you must take the necessary precautions to protect yourself from bloodborne pathogens. A part of that is knowing how to properly clean up blood and what products to use in the cleanup process. 

What Can I Use to Cleanup Blood?

Blood spills may require specialized equipment depending on the location and size of the spill, but most can be cleaned safely using the equipment recommended in Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) Bloodborne Pathogen Cleanup Kit. 

 

  • Disposable gloves
  • Disinfecting towelettes
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Biohazard bag with zip tie
  • Protective cap
  • Eye protection
  • Protective gown
  • Mask
  • Registered disinfectant product with a broad spectrum kill claim
  • Biohazard labels
  • Leak-proof sharps containers
  • Brush and dustpan or tongs/forceps

 

Large blood spills (not your average nose bleed) should be remediated by a professional biohazard cleanup company, such as in situations of homicide, suicide or unattended death.

 

Proper blood cleanup often also involves specialized disposal procedures. Placing soiled items in doubled disposable red bags with “Biohazard” clearly marked, and giving them to a licensed infectious waste removal company, are two ways to protect the area and people from bloodborne pathogens. You can throw out a bloody tissue without a problem; however, a large blood cleanup project will require specialized disposal to prevent health-related risks. 

3 Things to Know When Asked to Cleanup Blood:

  1. Always assume the blood is infected and contagious (HIV, Hepatitis B or C, etc.).
  2. Wear the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) for the blood cleanup.
  3. Possess the right equipment for cleaning up blood properly and know how to safely use it.

HOARDING CLEANUP SERVICES

A recent study revealed that an estimated 2 - 6 percent of the US population are hoarders of some kind. Bio-One Raleigh works discreetly with families and friends of those who are unable to take care of their property due to physical or mental limitations, and need help with decluttering and hoarder cleanup. Many people do not realize the health and safety hazards associated with cleanups that involve hoarding in connection with biohazards. In addition to moving mounds of material, these hoarding situations are often exacerbated by filth, unknown bacteria growth, and human or animal feces or remains. It is crucial to call hoarding cleanup companies for these types of situations.

 

 

PROFESSIONAL HOARDING CLEANUP AND DISINFECTION

Bio-One has helped families and friends with hoarding cleanup for more than a decade. Recent media attention has done a lot to spotlight hoarding as a serious issue, but the social stigma still remains. When faced with remediation for extreme hoarding, call a professional hoarding cleanup specialist like Bio-One Raleigh.

 

Our expert technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and respiratory protection during these cleanups to avoid exposure to possible biohazards such as Hanta virus, Histoplasmosis, Staph bacteria including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus) and E. coli, just to name a few.

 

In every situation, Bio-One Raleigh follows a strict protocol to ensure proper removal and disinfection of biohazardous materials while adhering to local, state, and federal regulations. We understand these are sensitive situations, which is why we provide immediate assistance with discretion and care. Our vehicles are unmarked and our trained technicians work with the utmost care to protect your privacy. 

 

WHAT IS HOARDING?

Hoarding is a psychological condition that causes people to obsessively collect items and makes it difficult for a person to part with things once they are acquired. Many people don’t realize the health and safety hazards that hoarding brings, as it related to biohazardous materials. Extreme filth and feces can bring with it bacteria that should be disposed of as biohazardous waste.

 

HOW DO WE CLEAN?

 

Hoarding cleanup presents complex health and safety hazards. We adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen regulations and practice universal precautions to protect our employees and customers. Our science-based process ensures that we contain the affected areas to prevent cross-contamination, remove all traces of biological materials, disinfect and deodorize, and test to confirm that the affected areas are free of pathogens. We are diligent and thorough because we understand that the health and safety of you and your family are on the line.

 

Whether you need hoarder cleanup for a friend, a loved one, or even yourself—when you’re ready to get help, Bio-One is there. Our job is not to judge; our job is to clean and disinfect so your home safe and livable again.

If your home was built on a crawlspace, one of your major concerns is the development of mold. Crawlspaces rarely receive a lot of attention. They are dark, moist environments that we seldom enter with any regularity, However, with the addition of a little excess moisture, they can become a breeding ground for mold. At Bio-One Raleigh, we have a team of certified Mold Technicians to remediate and remove mold. 

Usually the mold isn’t discovered until some type of repair is needed; a leaky drain line, an issue with heating ducts, or a home inspection when selling a home. Because certain molds can cause serious health complications, if mold is discovered in your crawlspace you need to start remediation efforts as soon as possible.

 

There are three classifications of molds depending on how they affect people. The first is allergenic molds. These are molds that aggravate people with allergies and are considered the least dangerous types, unless of course you are one of the people who are susceptible to them. The second type is pathogenic molds. These molds are toxic and will affect people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women, and young children. The last classification is toxigenic molds. These molds produce mycotoxins that will cause severe health problems. Exposure can be by touch, inhalation, or ingestion. An example of this class of mold would be the infamous Stachybotrys chartarum, also known as black mold.

 

Why Crawlspace Mold May Be Present

Crawlspaces can be ideal places for mold to flourish. Many times conditions in crawlspaces contain the right ingredients; a lack of UV light, warm temperatures, organic food sources like paper on insulation or wood, and most importantly, moisture in the form of water leaks, rainwater, or high humidity. All of these “ingredients”, plus the fact that crawlspaces are seldom entered, can lead to the existence of crawlspace mold.

Sometimes unwanted visitors or residents under your home can be the cause of crawlspace mold. Mice, rats, or other animals may decide that your crawlspace would make an excellent home. They tunnel or chew their way in, and in doing so, create an entry point for moisture to also enter the crawlspace. Sometimes the problem is high humidity. HVAC leaks, moisture condensation on ducts and water lines, or puddles of water from leaking drain lines or misdirected downspouts can add unwanted humidity to your crawlspace. Remember, moisture plus warm temperatures plus an organic food supply will equal a crawlspace mold problem.

 

One of the best ways to detect a mold problem is with the human nose. Almost all molds emit a musty, earthy smell. You may not be able to see it, but you may be able to smell it. If you do detect a musty smell, don’t ignore it. It won’t go away or get better as time passes, in fact the problem will just get worse.

 

Mold Is a Fungal Organism, Not Dirt or Dust

 

  • You can’t eliminate mold with ordinary cleaning chemicals or detergents.
  • You should not attempt to just sweep it or brush it away.
  • Chlorine bleach, which is 98% water, should not be used to attempt to remove mold from porous surfaces like joists or plywood. The water in the bleach will further supply the mold’s needs for water.
  • In biblical times people were not instructed to clean mold, they were told to remove it. Times haven’t changed; mold needs to be physically removed.
  • What kind of mold is it? It doesn’t matter, you don’t want to keep it, get it removed.

 

Crawlspace mold removal is not a task to be taken lightly. Unless there is very little mold in a very small area, crawlspace mold removal should be left to professional mold remediators. 

 

Bio-One technicians are properly trained to remediate and remove mold from your crawl space and other areas of your home, business or even car. We serve the Triangle and surrounding areas. Contact us today for a free estimate.

THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPASSION AND OTHER SOFT SKILLS IN CRIME SCENE CLEAN UP

 

 

Do you often feel that your soft skills are overlooked? There are a select number of professions where soft skills such as compassion, respect and integrity are critical to the performance of the job. The crime scene clean up business is one perfect example.

 

Academics and executives agree that communication, compassion and creative problem solving are crucial to employees’ success.

 

Managers in typical office environments are beginning to recognize the importance of soft skills. However, not all jobs are created equal, and managers who work in industries that deal with grief and trauma situations must put a greater emphasis on a potential hire’s soft skills.

 

Emotional intelligence is highlighted as a necessary skill in industries like victim advocacy, funeral services and biohazard cleanup. This skill ties into a person’s social skills, including social awareness, compassion and appropriate interactions.

 

At Bio-One Raleigh, we seek out team members who have a strong desire to help others. It is important for our team to be able to work with empathy and have a sense of what others may be going through. We look to make a connection with our customer make a tough situation better. 

 

Because a career in crime scene clean up means being on-call, employees must be willing to sometimes sacrifice time with their family and even a normal sleep schedule. They understand that working around the clock to help a family recover from a traumatic situation is part of the job and they are able to put their needs second.

 

For Karen & Rick Jacobs, the business is very personal. "We conduct this work because we want to help people who have been left to deal with a difficult, painful task," explains Rick. "That’s why our company motto is 'Help first, business second'. We don’t ask for payment until after the job is complete because we want to remove the safety threat from your home as quickly as you do. Every person on our team will arrive on-site with an understanding of the trauma you are going through and a respect for your privacy and personal needs."

It’s happened at schools, stores and offices, warehouses and city halls: Someone who might be infected with the coronavirus passes through.

The building often closes. Then come the calming words: deep cleaning.

The idea is that a thorough cleaning and disinfecting could help prevent people from getting sick. The virus is spread mainly through person-to-person contact, though people can also catch it from droplets exhaled when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Those droplets can stick to surfaces, and the virus can survive for hours or days, according to health officials.

A deep clean is supposed to kill it.

The term sounds official, but it isn’t. It has no standardized definition. It is imperative to make sure you are hiring a licensed, experienced company.

Bio-One Raleigh has extensive experience with infectious disease decontamination and disinfecting cleaning. We have been trained how to decontaminate a scene with infectious disease present, have the proper chemicals that are EPA approved and have the proper PPE to ensure not only the safety of themselves, but also to minimize possible cross contamination. Many other companies may claim this, but many cannot deliver.

A few things to ask a company you are considering hiring;

1. What chemical will they be using and is it EPA approved for coronavirus, 

2. You need to see their certificate of insurance (COI),

3. Ask them what other types of infectious diseases and virus they have worked with and when.

If they cannot provide these items, they are not qualified to even be considered to do the work.

Now, how do you know when to make that call? If you, someone that lives with you or someone you came into contact with tested positive for coronavirus, make that call. Disinfection services after a virus is confirmed is very detailed and thorough and should be done by a professional. Special chemicals, equipment and PPE are needed to ensure the best possible result and minimize the potential spreading of the virus.

 

If no one has tested positive, you can use one of the EPA approved products to do some disinfecting on your own. However, if you are not confident in your ability to disinfect properly or would like a professional to do it, call a professional. Bio-One has been preforming many proactive decontamination services for many people and businesses. 

 

No matter what the situation, know that there is help available to you and your family. Professionals, such as Bio-One, are available around the clock to ease your mind and help you feel safe in your home again. Don't hesitate to call or email us with any questions or a complementary plan for disinfecting cleaning.
