If you’re here at BioRecovery.com, it’s likely that you’re in immediate need of a company specializing in biohazard cleanup. You’re not sure exactly what it is we do or how much it will cost, and you want to make the right choice in selecting a company you can trust to restore your property to its pre-trauma condition.
Our industry is often referred to as “crime scene cleaners“, and while we do indeed handle many crime scene cleanup cases—often referred to us by compassionate law enforcement agencies familiar with our reputation—we also intercede in a variety of situations requiring special handling of bloodborne pathogens and bodily fluids.
Situations that you don’t want to—and shouldn’t—handle on your own.
In addition to crime scene clean up, BioRecovery specializes in these hazardous, unpleasant, and emotionally difficult cases:
- Suicide Cleanup
- Hoarder Cleanup
- Unattended Death Cleanup
- Workplace Violence Aftermath Cleanup
- Traumatic Injury Cleanup
- Infectious Disease Cleanup
We also handle other specialty biohazard and chemical abatement cases in the private, industrial, corporate, municipal, and government sector.
How to Seek Assistance
Your property has just become the scene of a crime, suicide, unattended death, or another traumatic event. Once the injured or deceased has been removed, and any investigations completed, you’ll want to contact your property insurance provider. In addition, local victim’s advocacy groups might be able to help with costs. They can determine how much coverage you’re entitled to for biohazard remediation and “back-to-before” property repairs.
If you have supplemental insurance, be sure to contact your agent; depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a cash payout for any expenses incurred after an injury or death in the family.
By now, you may have called your personal support network or professional advisors. If you were involved in the trauma (and this includes being a witness who was otherwise not harmed physically) you may want to ask for help reviewing policies and contracts; you’re likely shaken, and it’s important to look after your own well-being.
We also provide informative articles on our blog with more in-depth descriptions of our services and resources for trauma survivors.

What to Expect When BioRecovery Steps In
We can work directly with your insurance company, who may opt to send an adjuster to survey the property damage. We’ll provide a thorough estimate of our trauma aftermath cleanup services and give you a timeline for completion. Once we begin, we’ll keep you posted on our progress.
BioRecovery is discreet. You don’t want your neighbors to see our crews walking in and out of your home or business wearing hazmat suits. We set up a “clean room” inside the property where our technicians change in and out of their protective clothing (PPE) as necessary, further protecting your property from secondary contamination.
Our technicians use special solutions and equipment to identify, deep clean, and remove all traces of bodily fluids and tissue from carpeting, furniture, fixtures, and window treatments. Sometimes this involves disposal of porous materials, including subflooring and textiles, for your safety.
We also clean ventilation systems and inspect all exposed surfaces for microscopic biohazards. At your discretion, we can make cosmetic and structural repairs to damaged areas of your property after pathogenic portions of drywall, molding, and subfloors are removed.
Cleaning houses after unattended deaths requires special attention to secondary issues, including pervasive odors, pests, and pest residues. These are also present in hoarding cleanup cases, and given that certain insects and rodents are vectors for harmful pathogens, and their odors can attract future infestations, it’s imperative that all remnants of pest infestations and bodily fluids are completely eliminated.
We work efficiently and quickly so you can return to your property when you’re ready to do so, with the peace of mind knowing that your home is free of airborne and bloodborne pathogens.
Just as important, your property will once again be a place of comfort and safety.
