Sanitization, disinfection and remediation: what do they mean?
Dealing with a body means dealing with the possible spread of diseases, some of which may be life-threatening. Swine flu, E. coli, MRSA, hepatitis — all these diseases are bloodborne, and some of them can stay in affected environments for years before they become active. Protecting you from them is our responsibility. That’s sanitization and disinfection.
Because even small traces of biological contamination can present these risks, we don’t stop until a scene is safe, even if that means the removal of sections of carpet, flooring, or other materials. Also, emergency services are under no obligation to help you remove traces of fingerprint powder, broken glass, or any other foreign material at a crime scene — but we are. That’s remediation.
Aftermath takes our responsibility to sanitize, disinfect and remediate your home, business or vehicle very seriously, and we communicate how and why we’re doing so throughout the whole process. That’s why we’re the nation’s premier crime scene cleanup and biohazard remediation company. Call us at 877-872-4339 for 24/7 emergency service. When you need to deal with an unattended death and you’re asking yourself, “What now?” — trust Aftermath to answer the question.
