Crime Scene Cleanup
Crime scenes require professionalism and sensitivity for safe and thorough cleanings. We're the people that clean up after a crime scene takes place. Call Bio Recovery for 24/7, nationwide crime and trauma scene cleanup today.
When blood and biohazard spills aren’t properly sanitized, there’s a high risk of spreading pathogens, especially those that survive outside of the body for days, weeks, or even months.
When a tragedy occurs on your premises, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone on the property. At no point should you ever attempt to clean, disinfect, or remediate a crime scene or trauma scene yourself due to the dangers of blood-borne infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, HBV, HBC, and VHF’s, not to mention the mental toll this can take on the untrained.
We are a crime scene cleanup company with more than 20 years experience cleaning up after trauma, homicides, and countless other biohazard contaminations. We’ve maintained an outstanding customer rating and are proud to share recent testimonials.
We rely largely on customer referrals, many of which are passed along to surviving crime victims and their families by sympathetic first responders, insurance companies, property managers, and funeral directors. At Bio Recovery, we’ve maintained the respect and trust of clients in the private, commercial, industrial, and government sectors.

Who We Are
We’ve established ourselves as an industry leader through our two decades in the field of crime scene cleanup services. We are in service nationwide, and have worked with every situation from private homes and businesses to police stations and hospitals, and more.
How We Clean Up After a Crime Scene
The crime scene cleanup process can vary depending on the condition of the affected area. However, the crew will enter the home or business in approved hazmat PPE to document and assess the trauma scene.
The property will be assessed based on the square footage of the area, the amount of time since the incident has passed, the conditions in the area, supplies and equipment such as PPE, how long it will take to remove the debris, and disposal. You will have the option of what you would and would not like for us to remove before we begin work.
Listed below is a brief rundown of our cleaning process:
We walk through the site to document all affected areas. We then isolate the work areas with hazard signs and yellow tape. Ensuring that the areas are not disrupted is of the utmost importance. It's also important to isolate the areas to prevent accidentally tracking or spreading biohazards.
During the initial assessment, photos and notes will be taken of the scene. Photos and notes are used to quote accurate estimates and help us to restore work areas to their original condition.
An initial assessment will go over the square footage of the house, the condition of the house, and the entire scene. Per OSHA standards, cleaners will enter the house wearing PPE approved for enveloped viruses (e.g. disposable gloves, protective eyewear, a N95 mask, and approved suits).

Additional Crime Cleanup Services
Cleaning crime scenes is extensive and generally involves several subservices. While each individual case varies and it’s best to ask the estimator you’re working with, our crime scene cleanups can include the following services:

Pricing & Payment Plan
We make the payment process as simple as possible. If the situation is covered by insurance, we deal directly with your insurance provider. If not, we offer various other payment options.
*A very large percentage of the crime scene cleanups that we perform are fully covered by insurance.*
Insurance sometimes covers cleaning costs. We’ll work with the claims department of your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance on your behalf.
Direct Payment Options
We’re flexible with our direct-payment options, and can help you determine the best financing plan based on your out-of-pocket costs and policy payouts.
We can help connect you with the most appropriate funding sources to help with coverage gaps, deductibles, or out-of-pocket expenses.
