VIVA Environmental, Inc., a company that provides highly technical and customized training opportunities for environmental cleanup personnel, utilizes Blue Life Environmental as a subcontractor.

Headquartered in El Paso, TX, Blue is a full-service emergency-spill response contractor that provides a full spectrum of services via numerous divisions and staff members. Blue mobilizes to clean up hazardous-material sites across the country. Thriving on delivering effective solutions to our clients’ challenging, complex obstacles.
Blue Life provides serves in cleanup and disposal of trauma scenes, infectious diseases and viruses, and biohazardous materials. Additionally, Blue has the manpower and expertise to handle hazardous materials/chemicals, clandestine lab materials, oil, and non-hazardous materials, following all guidelines set by the state, city, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Moreover, Blue’s team has provided trauma-scene cleanup services for the United States Federal Government for 30 years. The sensitive nature inherent within these experiences has helped Blue develop a very specific and efficient process of cleaning and disinfecting, as it is often difficult to determine the infection exposure of deceased individuals.

Together with our in-house experts in the field of biological science, in conjunction with our environmental remediation subject material experts, we've developed Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for cleaning and decontamination protocols directly associated with COVID-19.
While Blue Life has created an SOP in disinfection and preventative cleaning, we individualize all our client’s situations and produce a Best Management Practice (BMP) study and aid fully implementation at your facility.
SOPs establish any proactive core needs for establishments at increased risk of contamination or simply taking the appropriate actions to protect their clients, tenants, or employees.
While BMP applies to any location that suspects or has verifiably been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Developing two sets of procedures helps us maximize the effectiveness of the cleaning or decontamination while reducing any unnecessary cost.
Both our preventive services disinfecting and sanitizing procedures include professional cleaning protocols as well as the applicable disinfectants and decontamination methods.
