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 majority of Crime Scene/Trauma Scene worksite areas run the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Adhering to proper training and safety rules, regulations and procedures is critical for the personal safety cleanup crews and any persons who will occupy the property after the biohazard cleanup has been completed.

PuroClean will perform the following tasks with absolute sensitivity to privacy and confidentiality: Removal and disposal of bodily fluids, tissue, and other substances that result from the accident, trauma, crime, or death on your premises. We also perform these tasks in strict accordance with government regulations. You can be positive that our trained professional technicians will clean, disinfect, and deodorize your project and bring that area back to its pre-accident form.

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.
