At Biohazard Response in Orlando, FL, we specialize in the complete cleanup, remediation, and restoration of sites where a death or accident has occurred. Our crime scene cleaners have extensive experience and training in unattended death cleanup services, suicide cleanup, crime scene cleanup, and the safe and effective removal of biohazard waste, including bodily fluids, biological material, and more. When someone is going through the pain and stress of dealing with an unattended death in the family or at the workplace, they shouldn’t also have to handle the logistics of a full biohazard cleanup. This is why we offer comprehensive death cleanup services in Orlando, FL, including a 24/7 response line.
Unattended Death Cleanup Services
The crime scene cleaners that handle our unattended death cleanup services are experienced, trained, licensed, insured, certified, and compliant with all OSHA regulations. Our staff is compassionate and knowledgeable, and our unattended death cleanup services include professional, full-service cleaning and remediation services for biohazard materials, as well as odor elimination, disposal services, and restoring the site to its previous condition. Because our crime scene cleaners are working with biohazard materials, there are very strict regulations as to how the site can be cleaned, how things can be disposed of safely, and how to make the site inhabitable again.
The Need for Unattended Death Clean-up Services
Unattended death cleanup services are necessary when a person dies alone and the body isn’t immediately discovered. Whether the death is due to natural causes, suicide, or the result of a crime, the decomposition of the body will play a role in determining the extent of the cleanup required. Police, fire, and ambulance services do not include death cleanup services, so that burden falls to the family members of the deceased. Because there are such stringent regulations surrounding the cleanup of biohazardous materials and decomposition, crime scene cleaners must be educated, trained, certified, licensed, and insured in order to provide this service. We make the process as pain-free, expedient, and compassionate as possible. Without unattended death cleanup services, the site will not be safe to inhabit and your health and safety may be at risk.
Selecting the Best Company to Handle Death Clean-Up
When choosing a crime scene cleaner for death cleanup services in Orlando, FL, you should consider the following factors:
- Are they licensed, insured, and certified? There are a few certifications that crime scene cleaners in Florida need in order to do business, including biohazard cleanup and blood cleanup certifications. They must also follow federal regulations governing death cleanup services to ensure they are protecting the health and safety of the community. A crime scene cleaner should also be API Worksafe certified and have a crime scene cleanup decontamination certificate, odor control certificate, and code of safe practices certificate from OSHA.
- What training have they had? All crime scene cleaners should have extensive training and knowledge of every area of death cleanup services, including safely cleaning and disposing of biohazardous materials. They are also trained in specialized equipment and cleaning products used, as well as customer service training that focuses on post-trauma care.
- Do they offer 24/7 services? Crime scene cleaners who offer 24/7 services will be available to you as soon as you need them, so you won’t have to wait for a callback.
- What are the out-of-pocket costs for their death cleanup services? In most cases, your insurance will cover crime scene cleanup services. We can assist in filing a claim with your insurance company, or we can bill them directly. We can also work with victim services on your behalf.
