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 methamphetamine (meth) 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 methamphetamine 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.

Federal Regulations and Standards
In the 1970’s, waste disposal legislation was poor or non-existent. The 1965 Solid Waste Disposal Act encouraged states to develop waste management programs. The Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act had required installation of pollution control devises. These Acts did not directly dictate where the waste was supposed to go nor the processing of the waste prior to disposal.
State Regulation and Enforcement
Under the Texas Administrative Code, 16 titles cover a broad subject group in categories related to the oversight agencies that administer and enforce the codes. California, in relation to Texas, has gone even further to document the required permits and processes, enforcement guidelines, and has created more detailed definitions related to the components of the industry.
The economics surrounding cleaning and restoring an environment affected by a traumatic event not only include the inputs required to complete these projects but also the pressures of the environment that impede progress towards project completion. Inputs such as labor, chemicals, regulated biohazard medical waste, equipment, personal protective equipment, and conventional waste are relatively easy to track and to communicate during the accounting process.
In both the direct and indirect assessment of traumatic event remediation, there are unknowns to those assessing the environment. These unknowns include but are not limited to the extent of the contamination plume penetration through layers of material, the difficult task of odor removal in a structure or vehicle, the volume of affected material...More.
