Facing traumatic events that require services of a trauma cleanup company is incredibly difficult - as is dealing with the reality of cleaning. However, it is a reality that cleanup has to take place, and it is safer to hire a professional than to clean a potentially contaminated site on your own. A trauma and crime scene cleanup company can help you clean up after a tragedy so you can focus on the grieving process. Aftermath provides these services, and is a leader in the industry with nearly 20 years of crime and trauma scene cleanup experience.
Once police officers and other law enforcement officials have processed a crime scene, the crime scene cleaning process can begin. While it is often perceived that the police officers or crime scene investigators clean up the crime scene once it has been processed, the reality is that law enforcement officials do not have the means to perform this sort of specialized service. Therefore, the responsibility of cleaning and restoring the crime scene is left largely to that of the family.
In cases of unattended death, restoration is required in order to return the affected area back to a livable condition. Depending on the amount of time that passes between death and when the body is discovered, bodily fluids can seep past carpeting and porous materials and into the home’s structure.
With Aftermath expert cleaning service, you can be confident in our ability to return your home to a healthy and livable state without concern for potential diseases or odors from this tragedy.
Aftermath has joined with industry leaders to provide customers with any of the additional services that may be needed following the crime scene cleanup process.

For the family affected, dealing with an unattended death and clean up can be a grim, taxing experience.
