Bio Recovery and Crime Scene Clean Up - What to Do

Posted by Kim Jones on Wed, Feb 06, 2013

When facing the tragedy after someone has died, the last thing you want to think about is how to clean up the scene. But, it's really important that you know what to do and how to handle the situation. Hiring a professional to handle the clean up is usually the best option. Crime scene cleanup is a niche specialty within the cleaning industry. This is specifically referred to as CTS Decon – crime and trauma scene decontamination, which involves:

  • Detailed cleaning
  • Disinfection
  • Deodorization
  • Removal of contaminated material

Bio recovery and crime scene cleanup services can include situations like homicide, suicide, accidental death, decomposition, sewage spills to accidents that include bodily fluids, both human and animal. Our crime scene technicians are highly trained and their goal is to return the affected areas to a pre-incident state.

Federal Regulations
Federal (OSHA) regulations deem all bodily fluids to be a bio-hazard. Any and all blood, tissue or fluids are considered a potential source of infection and contamination. Exposure includes but is not limited to HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis A & B, Salmonella, Ecoli, Tuberculosis, Cholera, Influenza A, H1N1 and more.

Financial Responsibility
When a bio-hazard cleanup has occurred, homeowners insurance, life insurance and/or family members may assume financial responsibility. Insurance companies may reimburse any individual who assumes the obligation to pay. In addition, there are resources available where free financial assistance may be an option. Ultimately, the property owner or estate is legally responsible for any debt incurred as a result of contracting for necessary services to remove any bio-hazard.
