Death and crime scene clean up (also known as "bio recovery") after suicide, homicide, violent crimes, and accidental or unattended deaths,  presents very particular issues that require specialized prioritization, procedures, cleaning products, and equipment.

The person or company responsible for the project must ensure that bio-hazard contamination is contained and removed, evidence (if any) is preserved intact for law enforcement, and property is properly cleaned, disinfected, and restored to its former use and condition. Timing is important as relates to each of these considerations.

The biggest risk and challenge in bio recovery is that any biological substance (blood, saliva, urine, feces, semen, etc) is considered a potential threat. Biological substances may harbor virus', bacteria or toxins that can impact the health of people who are cleaning up the scene and those who will use it after the job is done. These threats include but are not limited to HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis A & B, Salmonella, Tuberculosis, and more. In order to protect people from these bio hazards, it is vital to understand how to remove and discard biological substances, and how to clean and disinfect the materials the substances have touched.

On a less threatening level, but nonetheless very important to the success of the clean up, is knowing how to remove stains and odors. Many stains and odors caused by biological substances require specialized knowledge and products to successfully remove them.

Crime scenes are often accompanied by violent acts that create property damage and Clean Earth Restorations is uniquely qualified, as licensed general contractors, to fix or replace damaged items such as carpeting, drywall, windows, ceilings, and paint.
