Infectious Disease Control
Whenever diseases spread through a population, cleaning infected areas is one of the best steps to take in order to prevent further infection. At Bio X Hawaii, our team of infectious disease cleanup experts offer professional and quick cleanup services for diseases such as MRSA, C Diff, staph, HIV, Influenza, Norovirus, Ebola, Corona Virus, Polio, and E coli throughout the islands.
Leave Infectious Disease Cleanup to the Professionals
Whether you’re dealing with an epidemic in your school or business or cleaning up after one person, when it comes to infectious disease cleanup, your first priority is to protect yourself and anyone else who will come into contact with the area. Trying to clean your Hawaii home or business from infectious diseases with regular household cleaners can still leave the virus and bacteria on various surfaces. Many cleaning products are simply not strong enough to kill the virus or bacteria or are misapplied and ineffectual. Without the knowledge of the cleaning requirements of specific diseases, additional people can become sick and you will be held legally liable for all damages down the road.

Rigorously trained with a wealth of experience, we know what it takes to eradicate the area of infectious disease and how to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Common Infectious Diseases
Though there are many dangerous diseases we clean up after here in Hawaii, the ones we most often deal with include MRSA, C Diff, staph, HIV, Influenza, Norovirus, Ebola, Corona Virus, Polio, and E coli. If you’ve been exposed to one of these diseases, it’s important to know the signs and symptoms so you can be treated as soon as possible and prevent others from becoming ill.
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus), a retrovirus affecting the immune system, is the precursor to developing AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome). By altering a cell’s DNA, HIV lowers the ability of the immune system to fight off other diseases such as cancer, infections, Tuberculosis, and kidney disease, among many others, and can lead to death, though this is not true in every case. Spread through bodily fluids such as blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and breast milk, there is no cure, only treatment. Symptoms will show gradually and worsen over time. They can include:
- swollen lymph nodes
- unintentional weight loss
- sore throat
Staph infections, caused by the staphylococcus bacteria, is a germ commonly found on the skin or in the nose of even healthy individuals. Most of the time, the bacteria cause no problems or only cause a minor skin infection. The serious problem arises, however, when the bacteria finds its way into the bloodstream, joints, bones, heart, or lungs. Depending on where the infection is located, symptoms can vary widely from minor skin infections to the inner layer of the heart becoming infected. Symptoms can include:
- Skin infections: boils, blisters, rashes, redness, surface swelling
- Ingested with food: Nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration, and low blood pressure
- Blood poisoning: fever and low blood pressure
- Toxic shock syndrome: fever, nausea, rash, confusion, muscle aches, diarrhea, and abdominal pain
- Septic arthritis: Joint swelling, severe joint pain, fever
Treatment includes a round of antibiotics as well as draining the infected area if possible.
Ebola is caused by a virus through direct contact of bodily fluids from one person or primate to another or through touching a common object infected by the virus, primarily through broken skin or mucus membranes in the eyes, nose, mouth, etc. Easily spread, outbreaks occur most recently in African countries. Though rare, Ebola is severe and can cause death. There is no cure or vaccine. Treatment involves treating the symptoms to help the body fight the virus. Symptoms include:
- severe headache
- muscle pain
- stomach pain
- unexplained bleeding or bruising
E. Coli, or Escherichia coli, is a bacteria often found in the intestines of healthy individuals. While most varieties are harmless, several strains can cause symptoms such as:
- severe abdominal cramps
- bloody diarrhea
Typically ingested through infected water, raw vegetables, or undercooked meat, most people recover in a couple of days. Young children and older adults, however, can develop more severe kidney complications. The best prevention is to wash food and hands thoroughly, and to cook meat until it’s well-done, as it’s easily passed from person to person.
MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a type of staph infection spread by contacting a surface where the bacteria have been growing unseen. With a high resistance to antibiotics, the bacteria is hard to kill and extremely contagious. It is found most often in those who already have a compromised immune system such as children, older adults, and those with HIV, though anyone can become infected. The symptoms depend on where the infection in but often include:
- shortness of breath
- muscle aches
Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a virus easily spread from person to person through infected feces coming into contact with the mouth and can infect a person’s brain and spinal cord causing paralysis or even death. Most people who catch the polio virus will have no symptoms while a smaller number will exhibit the following:
- stomach pains
- sore throat
- a small number of people will experience symptoms including the feel of pins and needles in their legs, muscle weakness, or paralysis
Treatment includes the polio vaccine, commonly given to young children.
Flu / Influenza
The common flu, or influenza, is highly infectious and can rapidly spread through a community. Most often seen from the fall to spring, the flu, however, can crop up anytime. Though the flu and the common cold share numerous symptoms, the flu will come on quickly along with a fever while the symptoms of a cold come on more gradually. Most people will recover from the flu after several days but it can be fatal. Symptoms include:
- muscle and joint aches
- diarrhea (in children)
- vomiting (in children)
- runny nose
- sore throat
C. Diff (Clostridum Difficile), a bacteria that is extremely contagious, it is highly resistant to regular cleaning products and difficult to eradicate. Though most often found in healthcare settings or in those taking antibiotics, C. Diff is able to live outside of a body for 70-90 days and can infect anybody. C. Diff has become more common in recent years and it is important to have an area professionally cleaned wherever someone with the bacteria has been. Symptoms can include:
- blood in feces
- abdominal cramping
- rapid heart rate

Coronavirus is a common illness most people come down with at some point in their lives. Caused by a virus that infects the upper respiratory system that sometimes travels down to the lower respiratory system causing pneumonia, most types are minor with a few being far more sever. Symptoms are like the common cold and include:
- runny nose
- sore throat
Treatment usually includes rest and over the counter medication to treat the symptoms.
Norovirus is a virus easily spread through infected persons through objects, direct contact, or infected food. Often mistaken for the flu or a stomach bug, norovirus is a different illness. Best prevented through washing your hands after using the restroom, before and after preparing food, disinfecting surfaces, and washing infected clothes and linens in hot water, symptoms include:
- stomach pain
The best treatment of norovirus is to treat the symptoms, rest, and drink lots of liquids to stay hydrated.
