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

Industrial site or commercial property accidental injuries or fatalities, unfortunate in their own right, often present a number of different and unusual problems that go way past the presence of injuries or fatalities. This includes the contrasting and unique coordination that comes into play when needing to work with insurance agents and accident investigators. It is vital to adhere to OSHA and American Petroleum Institute’s (API) occupational safety and health standards. It’s equally important to observe all local, state, and federal guidelines.

Bloodborne Pathogens

Proper training and adhering to safety guidelines and procedures is imperative for cleanup crews and future tenants of the property after the biohazard remediation is complete. The majority of Crime Scene/Trauma Scene events involve the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

Rest assured that our PuroClean trained technicians will clean, disinfect, and deodorize your affected areas and return those premises to their pre-incident condition. We will perform the removal and disposal of bodily fluids, tissue, and other substances resulting from crime, trauma, accident or death, while adhering to government regulations. PuroClean vows to perform this work confidentially and with extreme sensitivity.

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.

Suicide Cleanup

Experiencing the loss of a loved one by suicide is a very traumatizing experience. Compounding the loss of a loved one with having to deal with first responders can take a toll on family members. PuroClean technicians are trained to relieve your family of the burden of ensuring the property is properly cleaned, disinfected, and restored to its pre-event condition. We provide swift, confidential deep cleaning service with compassion.

Traffic Collision Cleanup

We understand that a traffic accident that involves accidental death or personal injury can be very traumatic. Our trained technicians will provide quick and compassionate service to clean vehicles and contents. We will eliminate blood and other biohazards to restore the accident scene and vehicles.
