The tragedy of a homicide or suicide is a painful and traumatic experience. After the sirens fade, you’re left with a home affected by blood, body fluids, and sometimes property damage. Aftermath is committed to quickly and safely cleaning and disinfecting your home to help you move past the tragedy. We are mindful of the emotional trauma, so we arrive in vehicles that are discreetly marked to protect your confidentiality and privacy.
How Do We Clean?
We adhere to OSHA regulations concerning bloodborne pathogens and practice universal precautions to protect our employees and customers. Our science-based process ensures that we contain the affected areas to prevent cross-contamination, remove all traces of blood and biological materials, disinfect and deodorize, and test to confirm that the affected areas are free of pathogens. We are diligent and thorough because we understand that the health and safety of you and your family are on the line.
To many, biohazard remediation (and its commonly used alternative, crime scene cleanup) sounds like standard cleaning. In reality, the two services couldn’t be more different. Biohazard remediation refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident, or communicable disease outbreak. Because of the high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing.
Aftermath has designed a 3-step remediation process and developed a line of cleaning agents to protect the health and safety of our customers and their property. For more than 20 years, we have adhered to the highest standards in biohazard remediation to ensure that our customers and employees are fully protected. We stand by our work with a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.
The Aftermath Remediation Process
We complete an initial walk-through and OSHA-mandated employee-safety hazard assessment of the scene.
We use OSHA’s recommended cross-contamination protocol to control the affected area by securing and separating it from other parts of the structure.
We remove all visible traces of blood and biological materials from the affected area. This is the most dangerous step of the remediation process.
After removal, we clean, disinfect, and deodorize affected surfaces using EPA-rated disinfectants.
Upon completion, we use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing technology to guarantee hospital-level standards of disinfection.
