Case Study: Commercial Biohazard Cleanup in Massachusetts

Old State House in Boston, MA.

Every day, businesses across the US are faced with the difficult prospect of biohazard cleanup. Even though the apparent physical dangers in some industries are minimal, it’s quickly becoming standard practice for retailers, manufacturers, transportation providers and hotel chains to establish a contractual relationship with a professional crime scene clean up company, so that when an incident occurs assistance is immediately available.

In 2012, a Massachusetts business was faced with the difficult prospect of remediating a public restroom following a tragic suicide.  The incident occurred over the weekend when the building was closed to most traffic. There was no blood present due to the non-violent manner of death, but to avoid unnecessary risk, administrators wanted the affected area cleaned, disinfected and deodorized before the building reopened on Monday.

By having a plan in place and calling Aftermath immediately, management was able to avoid putting additional strain on the business, including both clients and staff. Aftermath’s service technicians arrived promptly and performed the remediation over the weekend to return the building to a safe and sanitary state before reopening the location to the public at the regularly scheduled time.
