Yellow crime scene tape blocks the entrance to a commercial property. We provide crime scene cleanup services 24 hours a day in San Diego.

Although we are better known for restoring fire, water, storm, and mold damage, our technicians are also trained to provide a full range of specialty commercial deep cleaning services, including crime scene cleanup. Our local San Diego City, South West team is trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industries.

Crime scene cleaning services, often referred to as biohazard remediation or crime scene cleanup, are essential for several reasons after a crime scene investigation is completed:

Health and Safety: Crime scenes can be extremely hazardous due to the presence of blood, bodily fluids, chemicals, and other potentially infectious materials. Cleaning professionals are trained to handle these biohazards safely and effectively, reducing the risk of exposure to harmful pathogens and contaminants. This helps protect the health and safety of both the cleaning technicians and anyone who may enter the area later.

Legal Compliance: Crime scene cleanup must adhere to strict regulations and guidelines set forth by various local, state, and federal agencies. Professional cleaning services have the knowledge and experience to ensure that all legal requirements are met, preventing potential legal issues for property owners or law enforcement agencies involved.

Thorough Cleaning: Crime scene investigations can leave behind not only visible stains and debris but also hidden biohazards that may have soaked into surfaces or materials. Cleaning professionals have the expertise and specialized equipment to thoroughly clean and decontaminate the area, ensuring that no traces of biohazards remain.

Restoration of the Scene: In many cases, a crime scene may be a business, public space, or home that needs to be restored to its pre-incident condition. Cleaning services can help with the restoration process, including repairing or replacing damaged items, repainting walls, and eliminating any lingering odors.

Psychological Impact: The aftermath of a crime scene can be emotionally traumatic for those affected by it. Professional cleaning services understand the sensitivity of the situation and work discreetly and compassionately to minimize the psychological impact on victims, witnesses, and property owners.

Proper Disposal: Biohazardous materials must be disposed of in accordance with strict regulations to prevent environmental contamination and protect public health. Crime scene cleaning professionals are trained to handle the safe disposal of biohazardous waste materials.

Time and Efficiency: Crime scene cleaning is a specialized task that requires the right equipment, cleaning agents, and techniques. Professional cleaners have the experience and resources to work efficiently and effectively, reducing the time it takes to clean and restore the scene.

Evidence Preservation: During a crime scene investigation, evidence may be collected and documented. Cleaning professionals are trained to avoid tampering with or contaminating potential evidence, ensuring that the integrity of the investigative process is maintained.
