Aftermath Best Practices Revealed
Aftermath is the only truly specialized nationwide provider of crime scene, trauma and biohazard cleanup services. And because of our commitment to high standards of quality and safety, we’ve been an industry leader since 1996. Local teams are dispatched 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with lightening fast response times from call to scene in most US states. We do not subcontract; our mobile regional offices are corporate owned and operated. Moreover, our people are what make the difference: highly trained, discreet and committed to helping in traumatic situations.
Last month, Aftermath was featured on the television program Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. The spot aired December 16th, 2015 on the Discovery Channel and is now available for viewing on Vimeo. Among the topics discussed, the episode highlights what we like to call our Best Practices, things that we do that set us apart from the competition.
When a tragedy occurs, you may not have time to evaluate all options thoroughly. For this reason, we’ve organized a checklist to help you look for important factors you may not otherwise consider. A more concise and user friendly guide will be available soon, but in the meantime we’ve highlighted some of the most important aspects in this article for you to consider. Take a look:
We Are Nationwide and Dedicated
Biohazard cleanup is all we do. We don’t clean carpets, we don’t remediate mold, fire, or water damage, we don’t perform restoration or asbestos abatement. We are not a janitor or house cleaning service. After years of research, we have designed uniquely specialized and proprietary cleaning agents, safety equipment and cleaning methods that are expressly for use by our technicians.
We are Process-Oriented in Everything We Do, From Cleanup to Support
Because we are a nationwide company and not a franchise, we maintain a Center of Excellence control room for field support and communication, standardized work procedures for containment and cleaning, surface testing pre-and post-cleaning, and consistent communication procedures and documentation. An average of six people will support your job as a team, at HQ and on the scene, to ensure no detail is left unfinished.
We are a Licensed, Bonded, and Insured Company
Our offices are fully insured, partnering where necessary with licensed medical waste facilities and other certified and insured partners, to help mitigate your risk. We follow OSHA regulations to the letter, as well as best practices from NIOSH and other regulatory advisers.
We Maintain Great Relationships With Our Customers
Many of our customers share their personal experiences with us in letters or emails, telling us how much they appreciated our compassionate and thorough assistance. We also maintain a verifiable list of our previous clients, so you can feel rest assured that you are making the right choice when trusting Aftermath with the health and safety of your home or business.
Crime Scene Cleanup Employees Are Not Certified…They’re Trained
Finally, Aftermath employees are trained rigorously in our proprietary methods and adherence to federal, state, and local safety regulations and laws governing disposal of biohazards, PPE protection, bloodborne pathogen safety, and more. Because we are a nationwide company that does not use subcontractors, every employee is trained to meet the most stringent state requirements. We are also proud of the hiring decisions we make; each technician is professionally screened and drug tested as part of our on-boarding process.
Considering these points, it’s no wonder Aftermath Services is the industry’s leader in crime scene cleanup. We’re immensely proud of what we do, and the expertise we exhibit in every job we undertake. To share what we’ve learned, we also host special information sessions on topics such as crime scene clean up, bloodborne pathogens, and how to effectively use personal protective equipment in the wake of a biohazard emergency. If you’re interested in having a local technician or company leadership provide education for your public conference or private safety program, please contact us at 630-551-0735.
As always, if you require biohazard cleanup or have questions about our services, contact us at 877-872-4339. Technicians are on call to assist 24/7.
