It’s a sad fact of life that car accidents, suicides, homicides, and other tragic events can happen to our loved ones. It’s also an unfortunate fact that, after the police leave the scene of a heart-breaking event, families or other loved ones are charged with handling the trauma cleanup.

Here are some situations where you will find it beneficial to give us a call for our compassionate, discreet, prompt, and professional services:
- Suicides and Unattended Death Cleanup: Not only is it incredibly emotionally and mentally difficult to tackle the cleanup after this happens, it may be too physically challenging. That’s because decomposition – a natural occurrence during which organic materials break down into liquid – quickly begins after death.
- Homicides and crime scenes: Understandably, police officers don’t clean up a crime scene after the body has been removed and evidence has been collected. That job is left to loved ones or property owners. Crime scene cleanup involves removing blood, other types of fluids and biological materials, plus fingerprint dust or other chemicals used by crime scene investigators.
- Car Accidents: A contaminated car or other type of vehicle is not safe to drive until it has been fully cleaned and sanitized. The small structure of a vehicle, coupled with an inconsistent climate, creates a need for immediate and thorough cleanup.
- Blood: There is the potential for exposure to blood-borne pathogens and infectious microorganisms in each of the above tragedies. Examples of blood-borne pathogens include hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. Depending on the temperature and surrounding environment, blood-borne pathogens can survive for up to 16 days after a trauma, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Immediate cleanup is imperative.
