What is Biohazard Crime Scene Clean Up?


Biohazard crime scene cleanup companies specialize in removing potentially harmful contaminants, such as blood or other body fluids, and odors from crime scenes. Blood and body fluids can contain bloodborne pathogens and potentially cause diseases. When blood and body fluids get trapped in floors, walls, and even ceilings, these potential bloodborne pathogens can cause people to become sick months (and even years) later.

Aftermath is a biohazard crime scene cleanup company that specializes in trauma cleaning and biohazard removal. Our cleaning process is thorough and effective, ensuring you and your family can return to normal as soon as possible.  

The Aftermath Process For BioHazard remediation

Aftermath uses a two-step process for biohazard crime scene cleanup to protect you, your family, and anyone who comes into contact with your property after the crime is committed.

Step 1: Control the contamination

Our team of professionals uses disinfection procedures aimed at preventing cross-contamination. We set up three zones, the control zone, the buffer zone, and the clean zone.

  • Control zone – contaminated area where the biohazard removal and cleanup process occurs
  • Buffer zone – area where our technicians put on personal protective equipment and dispose of contaminated materials
  • Clean zone – clean area designated to store tools and equipment in order to prevent cross-contamination

Step 2: Biohazard cleaning and structural removal

After our team establishes the three zones, we will begin cleaning by removing any dirt, debris, and biological materials, such as blood and body fluids, from the area. Any surfaces or objects that cannot be cleaned will be removed and properly disposed of.

After disinfecting, our team uses a adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence test to ensure the area is free of contaminants. Finally, we use a deodorizer to get rid of any lasting odor.

When a crime or violent death occurs, the last thing family and friends should have to worry about is the biohazard cleanup process. If you are in need of a biohazard crime scene cleanup company, contact Aftermath anytime for assistance.
