Auto/Vehicle Biohazard Cleanup

AUTO / VEHICLE BIOHAZARD CLEANUP

Vehicle biohazard remediation is necessary when cleanup requires more than a surface wipe down of visible biohazards and debris. Vehicles require a thorough chemical treatment to properly disinfect lingering pathogens and prevent recurring odors.

If situations like homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, or disease outbreaks occur inside a vehicle of any kind, biohazard remediation is needed to thoroughly disinfect the affected areas. This often times requires removal of porous materials inside the car to ensure proper disinfection from any lingering blood, feces, urine, vomit, and other body fluids.

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

HOW DO WE CLEAN BIOHAZARD OR CHEMICAL DAMAGE IN A CAR?

Aftermath handles auto and vehicle remediations like any other biohazard remediation. We do more than just wipe down surfaces — we remove, clean, and disinfect blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident, or 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.

The remediation process begins with technicians putting on personal protective equipment (PPE) for protection against biohazardous substances. Our technicians contain the affected area to prevent further contamination beyond the site and then remove visibly stained items. Sometimes this requires cutting away affected porous items like car seats, and removing personal items unable to be saved or remediated. Clearly marked biohazard bags are used to remove soiled materials.

Our crew then disinfects surfaces using proprietary cleaning agents and methods to ensure no biohazardous materials remain. Once the remediation is complete, we go the extra mile by using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing to check if any organic matter is left on a surface. We double check our work so you can rest easy knowing the job was done right.

For more than 20 years, Aftermath has 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.

"I had no clue what to do, especially as I was overwhelmed with grief. Hooper and Weaver in Grass Valley, CA, recommended your company. As it was a Saturday, I honestly expected to have to wait a few more days to have it cleaned. But from the moment I contacted your company, I received both professional & compassionate help. While I would never wish this experience on anyone, it was good to have such a professional company & compassionate people when I needed them. I just want to say thank you to your three employees and let you know that you have some wonderful people working for you."
