Bio-One of Orange works closely with Law Enforcement, Emergency responders, Public Service Agencies, Victim Advocates, and other organizations for safe and discreet homeless encampment cleanup services throughout Orange County. Our work is extended to residential and commercial property managers/owners when a situation needs to be cleaned and sanitized. Our certified technicians can take care of homeless encampment scenarios, especially when some hazardous materials and items should be cleaned by professionals.
According to Arizona State University, homeless encampments can take many forms (from tent cities to groups of people sleeping in subway tunnels, sidewalks, abandoned buildings, etc.). A “homeless” person is someone who is temporarily dwelling from one place to another. Many factors come into place when discussing this delicate issue, as not everyone homeless is necessarily living in homeless encampments.
Furthermore, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (sheltered and unsheltered), there is a more specific classification for Homeless encampments.
Sheltered encampments can refer to emergency shelters or transitional housing centers. These places provide temporary housing to people who, due to various circumstances, have found themselves homeless. Learn more about sheltered encampments here.
On the other hand, unsheltered homeless encampments are places “not meant for human habitation.” These places include sidewalks, abandoned buildings, subway tunnels, parks, and more.
Homeless encampment environments are dangerous because of the improvised living conditions and biohazards like blood, feces/urine waste, alcohol, drug residue, etc.
Unfortunately, homeless encampments are areas where substance abuse occurs often. Because these are not places designed for human habitation, people use all kinds of materials for activities like cooking, bathing, and physiological needs. Turning to a professional to clean and disinfect these areas properly is important. Bio-One of Orange's technicians follows strict guidelines and procedures to remediate these areas. We can remove all biohazards from these scenes, using special PPE equipment to guarantee our team's and our community's safety.
