Unattended Death and Traumatic Environments Cleaning
Environments that arise from biohazardous events such as suicides, murders or homicides, crime or trauma scenes, and accidents produce medical waste. Our fully-compliant trauma scene decontamination technicians are experienced in remediation and will respond with the sensitivity and capability needed to resolve the issues inherent to environments affected by biohazardous medical waste.
We clean property such as apartment and homes affected by drug lab residue and/or include blood from a suicide or crime scene. Our processes will restore use to the environment. We also offer safe needle disposal (Biohazard Waste Disposal) for doctors, dentists, clinics, and funeral homes.
Once the emergency responders such as the police and coroners leave the scene of the crime or traumatic event, the family or property owner is facing the responsibility of the remediation of the affected environment. The police and the coroner are not responsible for the biological material left behind. The task assigned to these first responders is to perform the investigation protocol and remove the deceased should a death be involved.
Trauma Scene Biohazard Remediation
Depending on the violence associated with the event, the remaining biological material will vary in concentration and distribution. Not only are the biological factors important but also factors such as the length of clandestine drug manufacturing or the amount of tear gas canisters that penetrated the area.
We understand the challenges that are inherent, emotional and physical, to these biohazardous environments.

World Health Organization (WHO)
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2000, contaminated medical equipment where found to have caused 21 million hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections (32% of all new infections). In addition, 2 million hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections (40% of all new infections) and a quantitative estimation of 260,000 HIV infections (5% of all new infections) have been documented.
The WHO conducted a scientific analysis in 22 developing countries and concluded that the investigation of health care facilities that do not participate in sanitary waste disposal methods range from 18% to 64%. Management of biomedical waste requires awareness and diligence to avoid the disease transmission linked with poor practice techniques.
