Our Approach to Crime Scene Cleanup
Initial Assessment and Planning
In order to provide the most effective and efficient cleanup service, we start by conducting a thorough initial assessment of the crime scene. We take note of any biohazardous materials, damages, and any other factors that may impact the cleanup process. This allows us to create a detailed plan to address every aspect of the situation while adhering to local regulations and safety standards.
Sanitization and Restoration
Once a clear plan is in place, our team of professionals begins the process of sanitization and restoration. We implement various techniques and utilize specialized equipment to:
- Clean and sanitize affected surfaces, removing any traces of blood, bodily fluids, and other contaminants.
- Remove affected materials, such as furniture, flooring, and walls, when they can not be properly cleaned.
- Use air scrubbers and deodorizers to eliminate odors and provide a neutral atmosphere.
In every step of the process, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients and employees while ensuring the area is returned to a safe and habitable state.
Disposal and Documenting
Proper disposal of biohazardous materials and contaminated items is crucial to prevent health risks and complications. We follow all legal guidelines and regulations when disposing of these materials to ensure the utmost safety and environmental responsibility.
Lastly, our employees will meticulously document every aspect of the cleaning process. We maintain a detailed record of the services provided, along with any pertinent information to assist in insurance claims and other relevant situations. This commitment to thorough documentation demonstrates our dedication to providing a transparent and professional experience for our clients.

Health and Safety Measures
Professional Protective Gear
Our team of experts considers safety and health as our top priority. We take all necessary precautions to protect ourselves as well as the occupants of the affected site from harm. Wearing professional protective gear ensures our team’s safety during the cleanup process. Some of the protective gear we use includes:
- Gloves: Nitrile or latex gloves that are resistant to chemicals and punctures
- Respirators: N95 or higher efficiency masks to protect from airborne contaminants
- Goggles: To prevent any bodily fluids or chemicals from entering the eyes
- Coveralls: Disposable, chemical-resistant suits that protect from blood, biohazardous materials, and other contaminants
Use of Approved Cleaning Agents
To ensure effective removal of contaminants, we use approved cleaning agents that are specifically designed for homicide and suicide cleanup. Our selection process is based on the following criteria:

- Safety: The chemicals must not pose any health risks to our team or the site’s occupants.
- Environmental impact: We prioritize using eco-friendly and biodegradable products to minimize harm to the environment.
Some examples of cleaning agents we use are:

- Enzymatic Cleaners: These cleaners break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates present in biohazardous materials, making them easier to remove and sanitize the area.
- Antimicrobial Disinfectants: Used to eliminate any harmful microorganisms from the affected surfaces.
Along with these approved cleaning agents, our company follows strict protocols for the proper disposal of biohazardous materials in accordance with regulatory guidelines.
