How Crime Scene Activity Affects Your Insurance Policy

Insurance policies have many variables; while Crime Scene or Biohazard cleanup is often covered, it is very important that you consult your insurance broker or agent to determine your specific policy coverage.

Accidental Injuries or Fatalities

Strictly adhering to OSHA and American Petroleum Institute (API)’s occupational safety and health standards, as well as observing all applicable local, state, and federal guidelines is very essential. This is even more vital with accidental injuries or fatalities at an industrial job site or commercial location, which normally can present a wide array of unusual challenges that go beyond the existence of fatalities or injuries. Furthermore, you may have to manage the varying and unique logistics that factor in when you’re working with insurance agents or accident investigators.

Bloodborne Pathogens

The risk of bloodborne pathogen exposure is often involved in Crime Scene/Trauma Scene events. It is crucial to follow proper training and safety guidelines and procedures, to protect the personal safety of the cleanup technicians along with those who will live and/or work at the premises once the biohazard cleanup is finished.

Our PuroClean technicians will remove and dispose of bodily fluids, tissue, and other substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime, or death according to governmental regulations and with absolute sensitivity to privacy and confidentiality. You can rest assured that our trained professionals will clean, disinfect, and deodorize your property to bring it back to its pre-incident condition.

Illegal Drug – “Meth” Labs

Chemicals used to produce illegal drugs such as “meth and fentanyl” are volatile and can leave behind harmful residue. Our technicians follow federal and state guidelines to effectively clean all areas contaminated by chemicals related to illegal drugs.
