Trauma Cleanup

November 19, 2019 by David Scott


There are some services most people don’t think about—or even know they exist—until the time comes that they need it. In the case of Bio-One, we offer services that we hope you’ll never need, but we’ll be here for you if you do.


Our trauma clean up helps to return your home or business to a clean, safe state following an unattended death, suicide, homicide, or other situation that leave biohazard materials behind.


Since most of our customers have never heard of trauma cleanup before the night they required our services, many have questions about what we do. Here are some of the most commonly posed questions and concerns.


Why Can’t I Handle the Cleanup on My Own?
Only specially trained people are able to properly handle the cleanup of blood and other biohazard materials. The laws regarding blood cleanup are quite strict, and it’s easy to understand why when you consider the potential dangers.


E coli, MRSA, and other dangerous bugs can live outside the body for weeks. Unless the blood is cleaned up correctly, there is a real danger of exposing all who enter the home to serious health risks.


How Much are Death Scene Cleanup Services?
The cost of suicide cleanup, homicide cleanup, and similar services varies based on several factors, so there is no one price to suit every situation. Most of our customers don’t end up paying anything out of pocket as insurance covers 95% of the jobs we do.


It’s also worth noting that we don’t discuss collecting payment until after the job is done. Following a traumatic event, our focus is on providing the services you need to help return your home to a safe state.


How Fast Is Your Response Time?
Emergencies don’t happen only during normal business hours. That’s why you can reach the owner of Bio-One—not a voicemail or answering service—24/7. In most cases, our team will be on the job within an hour of receiving your call.


How Long Will it Take?
Most of our death scene cleanup services are completed within just a few hours. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that we have the proper licenses and certifications to properly dispose of blood and other biohazard materials in a way that is safe and meets all regulations.


I’m Worried the Cleanup Crew Will Judge Me.
That’s not something you ever have to worry about with Bio-One. We handle dead body cleanup, hoarding situations, and other scenarios in which the homeowners needs professional help to restore the safety of their home and many have endured a tragic situation.
