A Task You Shouldn’t Try to Do On Your Own

We understand that dealing with the unexpected death of a loved one is difficult. To make a trying time even worse, many families are often surprised to discover that police and emergency medical technicians don’t assist with the cleanup that follows an unattended death on a property. So what can family members do to not only restore their properties, but also not have to handle the task of cleaning up after an unattended death?

Cleaning up after an unattended death is not something you should ever attempt to try on your own. Aside from the emotional effects something like this could cause you, cleaning up after a trauma or unattended death requires specialized equipment and training. Crime scene cleanup companies can help restore properties where an unattended death, trauma, or even homicide or suicide has occurred. Our disaster and biohazard cleanup care team is experienced in cleaning, sanitizing, deodorizing, and restoring properties where unattended deaths have occurred. During the cleaning and restoration process, we pledge to offer you the upmost privacy and respect, even using unmarked vehicles while our care team works on a property.
Most insurance companies will work with you to help cover the cleaning costs incurred by this type of service, and we work with your insurance company directly to alleviate any additional stress during this trying time period. 

Even if a site appears clean, you run the risk of exposing yourself to potentially harmful bodily fluids or fluid-borne disease if you try to restore the property on your own. Don’t put yourself through additional trauma by attempting to do this on your own. Contact us during your time of need. We offer the following services throughout the state:

What Happens After the Crime Scene Tape Comes Down?

Images of crime scenes and the aftereffects from an unattended death, suicide, or murder are often included in popular shows and movies, but what really happens after a death on a property? After more than 20 years of Law and Order episodes and the growing popularity of crime scene dramas such as CSI and Dexter, have you ever wondered: What happens after the police leave? Do they have a crew that cleans up what remains after law enforcement officials have finished their investigations?

To many people’s surprise, forensic crews and other professionals who work on crime scenes don’t clean up what remains after a homicide, suicide, or unattended death on a property. The family members or property owners are often referred to companies that handle crime scene cleanup and these companies come to the properties and remove the biohazard waste. Accident Cleaners was one of the first crime scene cleaning companies in the state of Florida and has more than a decade’s worth of experience in crime scene cleaning. The care team at Accident Cleaners meets all state and federal regulations for the treatment, removal, and disposal of biohazard waste. Our qualified services include the necessary training, equipment, and certification required to properly deodorize and sanitize properties where an unattended death or homicide has happened. Our care team will work around the clock to restore properties to the condition they were in prior to the unattended death or homicide.

Unlike other disaster and homicide cleanup companies, we work directly with insurance companies to help decrease the financial burden placed on family members coping with an unattended death, suicide, or homicide in the family. Our services are available throughout the state of Florida in the following areas:

Our crime scene cleaning crews are located throughout these areas, allowing us to offer prompt response in the event of an unattended death or homicide on a property. In the event of an unattended death or trauma, let our team of professionals restore your property and provide you with peace of mind.
