Needle recovery and sharps sweeps are some of the more dangerous biohazard clean ups that some homeowners attempt. Typically, a landlord will discover that a property has been littered with used needles, but has no idea if the syringes are infected with HIV, Hepatitis C or any other communicable disease.
When your property has been compromised by a drug user, the drug residue and improperly disposed-of drug paraphernalia, such as used needles, glass pipes, and bags, can have lasting, adverse effects on the unsuspecting. Something as small as used hypodermic needle can easily penetrate someone’s skin, potentially compromising the victim’s health with unknown pathogens and drug residue. Broken crack pipes can cut skin and cause infections or allow drug residue to enter a person’s bloodstream.
