After-Death Cleanup: Leave It to Us
Today might likely be the most horrible day of your life. Perhaps your loved one passed away days before her body was discovered, or you personally witnessed a violent homicide or suicide. You may be feeling like nothing is within your control—not even your home. Whenever a death occurs outside the care of a doctor, it is classified as an unattended death, and often treated as a crime scene until law enforcement is satisfied that no crime occurred.
At some point, the realization hits: You are the one who is responsible for cleaning up a crime scene—not the police or fire department. In fact, first responders attending the death scene might refer you to a trusted biohazard remediation company, which is probably how you found us. You’re technically responsible, but that doesn’t mean it’s up to you to personally handle the unpleasant task of death cleanup.
Let professionals relieve the burden of a death cleanup
Our teams are trained, equipped, and psychologically prepared to clean up after death so you can regroup and recover. We understand that after a loved one has died, you have many difficult decisions to make, many of which will be complicated by your emotional and possibly physical distress. One phone call to Bio Recovery can remove the most unpleasant task from your list: Cleaning the aftermath of the tragedy. If you provide us with your property insurance information, we can work with your agency to arrange payment for our services. Auto insurance may also cover biohazard car cleaning costs if the person died in a vehicle, boat, or RV. We can also help you access victim services assistance, or arrange an alternate payment plan.
Once we’re given the green light, we’ll just need access to the premises and, depending on the scope of the death scene, we’ll be able to return your home to you in its pre-trauma condition within hours—safe, sanitized, and free of harsh chemical odors.
We encourage our customers to look after their own mental, emotional, and physical well-being following a tragedy. The earlier a person seeks care after experiencing a trauma, the less likely they’ll suffer PTSD and other trauma-related anxiety. Think of the time we’re saving you as time reserved for self-care and grief counseling.
No death cleanup situation is beyond our capabilities
Biohazard cleanup after death is more than just “dead body cleanup”. We don’t handle the deceased—only the biological residue left behind after a violent death or decomposing body. We also handle forensic cleanup, eliminating the compounds and chemicals used in the process of locating DNA and fingerprints, and other signs of a crime scene: Pepper spray, tear gas, smoke grenades, and gunpowder residue.
The following are just a few of the trauma cleaning services we offer our clients:
- Accidental death cleaning
- Electrocution death cleanup
- Decontamination of bloodborne pathogens at the death scene
- Cleanup after firearm accidents, suicides, or homicides
- Pool sanitation after drowning
- Blood and body fluid cleanup from subflooring, ceilings, and wall voids
- Removal of decomposition odor and gas
- EPA, OSHA, and municipally-compliant disposal of biohazardous wastes
- Referrals for or coordination of restoration construction professionals
- Mold abatement
- Hoarding cleanup, regardless of whether an unattended death cleanup is required
No job is too big… or too small. A professional, experienced trauma cleanup company will save you the mistake of spreading stains and contamination or missing unpleasant materials that could later be found in unexpected places. Our comprehensive checklist protects our clients from emotional retraumatization, and we hope our reputation and ethical standards will make you feel confident in choosing our services.
