FAQ: Crime Scene Cleaning Costs
How much does crime scene cleaning cost? The answer to that depends on the crime and the severity. If a crime is committed in your home, you’ll be surrounded by police and emergency personnel. But after they all leave, you’re left with a crime scene that you must clean up. Aftermath understands how difficult this time can be for you, and we work with homeowners insurance and other financing options to return your home to the safe haven it once was.
Each situation varies so widely that we cannot provide an exact number for you. However, Aftermath does provide a no-obligation written assessment after they assess a site, which will help you gauge the cost of cleaning.
What Types of Services Does Aftermath Offer?

- Communicable disease sanitization

What Contributes to the Cleaning Costs?
Each trauma scene we treat varies. Larger cleanups or sites that need a fast turnaround time may be more costly than smaller scenes. Some pricing factors that can contribute to the price are:
- The number of affected rooms
- The level of damage to the home’s structure
- How long the victim was left unattended
- Unanticipated complications (e.g. hoarding, machinery, large amounts of personal property)
Our rates are competitive with industry pricing tools, such as Blue Book and Xactimate. Our disinfection process is backed by 20 years of research and experience, and we take the highest measures to ensure our technicians’ safety while they clean, disinfect, and restore your home.
What are Aftermath’s Payment Options?
The amount of coverage you receive from your homeowners insurance provider can vary. Though we cannot make any guarantees, most homeowners insurance providers cover the cost of Aftermath’s services.
If you do have coverage, Aftermath can work directly with your insurance provider to submit the bill and fully document the scene before and after we clean. All you will have to worry about is paying the deductible.
If you don’t have coverage, you still have options. We have several payment options available and we also assist with third-party sources of funding, if you’re eligible to receive it.
Aftermath is available to help you move past this tragedy by taking care of the crime scene cleaning. Don’t go through this alone. Contact us at any time, on any day. We’re ready to help.
