Many property owners assume that police or emergency responders clean up hazardous materials. As difficult as it is to deal with a crime, trauma or accident on your property, cleaning up the aftermath is your responsibility.

Every situation is different. We can’t give you a timeline for completing our process without first assessing the extent of contamination. We outline a schedule for disposal of all biohazards, complete cleanup and any necessary restoration.
Yes. We specialize in homicide cleanup for Chicago properties, but we take care of all types of trauma cleanup. Our teams clean sites contaminated with blood, bodily fluids and biohazards resulting from any type of crime.
Safely dealing with dangerous materials resulting from a death or accident requires special training and equipment. Hazmat cleanup is extremely dangerous work.
Trauma scenes are often contaminated with bloodborne pathogens that cause serious illnesses such as hepatitis B and HIV. Meth lab environments contain high levels of volatile chemicals. Don’t ever attempt biohazard cleaning on your own.
All our technicians are industry certified in processing hazardous cleanup scenes. Here are more reasons to bring in specialists:
1. BIOHAZARD CLEANUP IS DANGEROUS
Regardless of the type of crime or trauma scene on your property, most contaminants are the result of body tissue and fluids. The organic debris can carry blood-borne pathogens capable of transmitting disease days and weeks after the initial incident. The material poses a serious health risk to everyone in the affected area.
When tissue and fluids come in contact with interior and exterior surfaces, materials absorb contaminants that quickly decompose and produce overwhelming odors. Professional forensic cleaning crews respond to your emergency and address dangerous biohazards immediately.
2. IT OFTEN INVOLVES CHEMICAL CONTAMINATION
A crime scene can also present health risks that you can’t see. Pepper spray and tear gas can permeate walls, carpets and furnishings. During an investigation, police use special powders and various chemicals, and the resulting residue compromises indoor air quality.
Meth labs are especially dangerous sites presenting unique challenges to landlords and hotel managers. Until your property is thoroughly decontaminated, toxic chemicals can invade its plumbing and HVAC systems and remain serious health hazards indefinitely.
3. FORENSIC CLEANING REQUIRES INTENSIVE TRAINING
When professional cleanup teams arrive on a crime or trauma scene, all members put their industry certification and rigorous training to work. They follow EPA and OSHA protocols as well as state and local regulations. You’re assured of a safe, efficient cleaning process that adheres to industry standards.
Forensic cleanup technicians maintain certification by mastering the latest advances in crime and trauma scene cleaning. This includes ongoing educational training that keeps them at the top of their field.
4. IT TAKES SPECIAL EQUIPMENT AND PRODUCTS
Biohazard cleanup can’t be taken care of with mops, buckets and bleach. An established crime scene cleaning contractor uses state-of-the-art equipment to detect hidden problems, sanitize surfaces and purify the air. Ultra-sensitive moisture meters, heavy-duty HEPA vacuums and ozone generators are just a few tools of the trade.
Cleanup technicians wear full-body protective gear and full-face respirators. They decontaminate and deodorize your property with a range of agents that clean, absorb and disinfect. Every piece of equipment and every product is designed or formulated for crime and trauma scene cleanup.
5. YOU KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT
It’s very difficult to deal with the aftermath of an accident, crime or suicide on your property. Home and business owners are often caught off guard by the fact that they’re responsible for cleaning up a crime scene or meth lab site. When you bring in professional help, you know what to expect.
A forensic cleaning contractor immediately responds to your call and explains the process. When the technicians arrive at your door, they quickly inspect the affected areas. You’re given a detailed project assessment that includes firm estimates on both the time and cost involved in cleanup.
6. YOU CAN COUNT ON THE RESULTS
By following carefully established protocols, a reputable cleaning company scrubs and sanitizes your property from floor to ceiling. Technicians disinfect surfaces, remove stains, eliminate odors, dispose of hazardous materials and take care of necessary repairs and reconstruction.
Whether the cleanup happens at your home or business, you know you can count on complete property restoration regardless of the situation. By following a few guidelines and trusting your common sense, you can hire a crime scene contractor who guides you through the initial confusion and helps minimizes the trauma.
