Michael Nestved

Director of Operations

Michael is one of the few individuals in the United States with more than 20 years experience in the cleanup of crime and trauma scenes. He began his career in the cleaning industry in 1987. He performed what would be the first in a long list of biohazard cleanups in 1988. In 1989, Michael opened his own cleaning and restoration service and for the next 14 years performed blood, crime and trauma scene cleanups along with these services. Recognizing the need for a full time biohazard clean up service in Central Florida, he assisted Carmen with the opening of Biohazard Response, Inc. in 2003. In 2008, he closed his cleaning and restoration company and brought his 20 plus years of experience over to Biohazard Response, Inc., where he now serves as Operations Director. Michael is a Nationally Registered Bio Recovery Technician.

We are an emergency first responder company, specializing in the remediation of biohazards resulting from accident, crime and trauma scenes.
