Aftermath offers specialty services for vehicle remediation, tear gas removal, and hoarding cleanup. Each service poses unique challenges that require expertise and experience.

  • Vehicle Remediation: An accident or a blood spill in a vehicle requires more than a surface wipe down of visible biohazards and debris. It requires a thorough chemical treatment to properly disinfect lingering pathogens and prevent recurring odors.
  • Tear Gas Removal: Tear gas causes violent physical reactions and is extremely difficult to completely eradicate. Proper removal requires meticulous planning, experience, and specialized equipment. Without proper remediation, the irritating effects of tear gas can persist for months, making the property virtually uninhabitable.
  • Hoarding Cleanup in Conjunction with Biohazards: Many people do not realize the health and safety hazards associated with cleanups that involve hoarding in connection with biohazards. In addition to moving mounds of material, these hoarding situations are often exacerbated by filth, unknown bacteria growth, and human or animal feces or remains.

In each situation, Aftermath follows a strict protocol to ensure proper removal and disinfection of biohazardous materials while adhering to local, state, and federal regulation. We understand these are sensitive situations, which is why we provide immediate assistance with discretion and care.

How Do We Clean?

Biohazard situations, particularly when they occur in unique settings, present complex health and safety hazards. We adhere to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen regulations 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 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 or business are on the line.

What Is Remediation?

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.

"My father passed away and was left unattended for a few days with His two dogs in the house. We called aftermath on a recommendation from the local police department. John and his team were so helpful, thoughtful and professional throughout this difficult process. They even helped us load my father’s Harley into our trailer because we didn’t have a ramp. John stood with us while his team worked and let us reminisce about our father with him. The team went through everything in the house and saved everything that they could for us. During this incredibly difficult time for us, they put our minds at ease knowing that they would take care of cleaning the house completely and thoroughly. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, john and team. "
