Many people don’t think a violent crime, accident, or other traumatic event would ever happen on their own property, but it’s possible. These situations, particularly ones that regard a serious injury or death, can be troubling to come across. If blood and other biohazard materials are involved, then it can be especially dangerous.
The first action you should take if you encounter this type of scene is to call emergency responders. Afterwards, you must call a professional cleaning company to handle the restoration and cleanup, as EMTs and law enforcement aren’t licensed to conduct this type of cleanup.

Our technicians are not only experienced and certified to conduct cleanup of such biohazards, but they have also passed a thorough background check. As such, you can trust our technicians to work on your property.
We understand that these situations can be difficult for the affected individuals, which is why we are always respectful with our work.
