What is the best way to handle this?

I have dealt with toilets full of feces and while this is gross you can still just flush it down as a rule. But what about when you can't?

I saw a house that squatters had moved into and they had been using two of the bedrooms as toilets. The floors are covered in piles of human feces, toilet paper, used feminine hygiene products, and other unrecognizable decomposed refuse. I thank god it is not my house to clean up.

So how do you deal with this? I was thinking gloves, charcoal respirators and disposable Tyvek coveralls with hoods. Just roll up the carpets with everything in them and wrap them in sheets of plastic.

Anyone with any knowledge of laws on how to deal with this please jump in.

Biohazard in my area if more than 2sf on floor. We do a lot of sewer backups and sewer explosions. Current vaccinations are the biggest violations. Obviously full face respirators and NON-penetrating hazmat suits--not Tyvek. Rubber boots too.

Can you post some info about the types of suits?

My plan would be to never touch the stuff. I have used a tacky floor covering for designed to protect carpets on commercial projects. It works like a giant piece of clear tape. I figure placing large squares of this over the smaller stuff would secure it until the carpet could be rolled up around it.

If they would not want the carpet removed they can get someone else to do it.

I'd call a hazmat crew, but thats just me.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Gypso,

I order from Aramsco. The tape is called Sticky Back carpet protector. If you want some of the best tape ever, kinda like duct tape x100, order a couple rolls of "restoration tape".

House used to board there large dogs and piles I mean pile of dog crap in all rooms! i first bid and doubled my CYD charge for hazard part! they would go for that asked me to just bill suits, resps. seperate! Well after the job was done they wanted receipts on everything only had to buy half had the other from another job I had done before(another company)! They only paid me for what I had receipts for!

Any time the is excretment of any type this is considered an Bio-Hazard...and that is how it shold be treated and removed....
If client will not pay for that then ask them to come do it themselves....
