In many cases, crime scene clean-up also has a biohazard component, while there are biohazard situations that aren’t really covered by crime scene clean-up. A common example that we see involves a deceased person who dies of natural causes and may not be found for an extended period of time. While not a “crime scene”, situations like this require specialized training and specific equipment.
Another situation that we respond to involves a suicide where law enforcement have released the scene back to the family and/or owner. While funeral service providers deal with removal of the body, we can deal with all the necessary clean-up.
We have found that these situations need to be addressed as quickly and as professional as possible. Our goal is to remove as much remnants if the incident as rapidly as we can, while providing the family with the respect and space they deserve. We understand that the incidents are extremely difficult times for families and friends, and we have the experience to deal with these situations in a professional and expected manner.
