Crime Scene Cleaning & Pricing FAQs

What sets BioTechs apart from other companies?

BioTechs is unlike any other crime, trauma, and biohazard cleaning company in one simple but fundamental way. We not only remove biohazards from the scene but genuinely care about the families and businesses we help.

We employ professional police officers, firefighters, and EMTs who are highly trained in compassionately communicating with loved ones dealing with profound physical and emotional stress. When you call our company, you will feel our empathy and genuine concern.

Some companies utilize answering services to take initial calls. BioTechs, on the other hand, doesn’t use answering services. We don’t believe anyone should have to explain their crisis to an answering service and await a call back.

With reaching out to BioTechs, you’ll speak with someone who can help you immediately. Your emergency becomes our emergency as soon as you call us.

How quickly can I expect you, and how long does a cleanup take?

Once you are faced with a crisis, every second counts. This is why BioTechs responds to a scene immediately, usually arriving in one 90 minutes or less.

The time it takes to provide homicide, suicide, or other biohazard cleanup services varies tremendously from scene to scene. On average, a scene can require three hours or more to address

Will my Insurance cover cleanup?

Most of the time, homeowners, renters, and automobile insurance coverage covers the cost of emergency biohazard cleanup.

As part of our service, and to make the entire process as easy on you as possible, we invoice the insurance company directly. That way, you don’t have to deal with the financial burden of the cleanup and or hassles associated with insurance company correspondence.

We work on your behalf, which enables you and your loved ones to stay focused on more important matters.

My Insurance company recommended a different company, should I hire them?

The biohazard cleanup company you use is ultimately your choice. BioTechs, however, is recommended by first-responders and insurance companies because of our high standards, fast response times, and customer-first approach.

We use the same pricing software utilized by insurance companies, which enables accurate and smooth communication. Having worked with BioTechs for nearly two decades, insurers understand our quality of service and believe our pricing is fair.

Trusting a company while dealing with loss and uncertainty is extremely difficult, so don’t just take our word for it. Watch the testimonial video on our website to understand how a client who was initially referred to a different company ultimately found the work quality and compassion she needed with BioTechs.

Can I have an employee clean up after blood and other bodily fluids?

As the employer, you are required to provide each employee with the proper personal protective equipment, chemicals, biohazard boxes, labels, and any other items needed to disinfect the scene correctly. They must receive extensive training and get certified per OSHA requirements 29 CFR 1910.1030. If an employee doesn’t undergo training or obtain the personal protective gear required, the employer can face fines from OSHA ranging from $7,000 to $70,000.

All technicians at BioTechs are trained, certified, and have the appropriate chemicals and gear to help families with homicide, suicide, crime scene cleanups as well as other biohazards, including Ebola. We properly dispose of all biohazard waste by a licensed medical waste carrier per the Code of Federal Regulations.

What kind of chemicals does BioTechs use in the cleanup process?

We stay abreast of the latest technology in both chemicals and equipment. Our proprietary chemicals are EPA registered and capable of eradicating potentially infectious diseases.

Although these chemicals will kill HIV, hepatitis, MRSA, and tuberculosis, among others, they are gentle on personal property and don’t cause damage.
