Cost & Pricing for Crime Scene Cleaning

First and foremost, BioTechs of Houston wants you to understand we are here so the healing can begin.

BioTechs strive to help you in any way possible, providing you with assistance so desperately needed after a tragedy. Our expert team compassionately guides you through each step of our process and explains any associated costs. We handle all insurance matters on your behalf so that you can focus on more pressing concerns, such as the grieving process or supporting affected loved ones.

No Out of Pocket Costs

In most trauma cleanup situations, loved ones bear no out-of-pocket costs.

Your deductible is taken from the remaining repairs allotted to you in the claim’s restoration portion. Our team bills the insurance company directly, and we receive payment from the insurance company.

There are financial assistance resources for crime victims and their family members. To take advantage of these benefits, more information is available please visit our information on Victims of Crime Assistance.

 

Financial Relief With BioTechs

Recognizing that our services are required in times of great stress, BioTechs strives to reduce the physical and emotional strain of our clients by working directly with insurance carriers. This frees those impacted by loss to grieve in ways they see fit.

Although we cannot guarantee coverage, property insurance covers biohazard remediation in most instances. Types of insurances that cover our recovery services include:

  • Homeowners
  • Renters
  • Automobile

Pricing Factors

Every scene is different, and therefore, remediation costs cannot be accurately determined without first assessing the scene. Due to a range of on-scene variables, it’s unwise to discuss the scope of work over the phone. Families are already going through a difficult time, and the last thing they should face is a cost increase.

BioTechs offers assessments of Houston-area crime and trauma scenes at no cost to the client. In this setting, we can precisely pinpoint the cleanup scope and convey what needs to be performed, how long the process will take, and the costs involved. Common pricing factors include:

  • Time lapsed
  • Type of scene
  • Surrounding items in room
  • Type of flooring
  • Temperature
  • Humidity

These are just a few examples of elements that can influence the cost of cleanup. Our pricing is extremely competitive and falls in line with industry standards.

We adhere to OSHA regulations concerning blood borne pathogens and exercise universal precautions to protect employees and customers. Our process ensures that we contain impacted areas to prevent cross-contamination, remove all traces of blood and biological materials, disinfect, and deodorize. Tests are performed to confirm that affected areas are free of pathogens.

The First Step To Recovery

The only thing we need to begin the remediation process is an insurance carrier’s name and policy number. We work closely with insurance adjusters from start to finish.

Part of our services includes initiating the claim on our client’s behalf. This minimizes the possibility of re-traumatization of loved ones when they have to relay details of the tragedy as part of the claims process.

Once the claim begins, we provide the adjuster with your contact information. They will reach out, but you should not have to answer any questions about the details of the scene.

 

Importance of insurance claims during cleanup situations

It is not uncommon for biohazard cleanup situations to require carpet replacement, repainted walls, and structural repairs. Response teams must remove all traces of contamination.

Your insurance adjuster will address any necessary repairs in the insurance claim. Filing an insurance claim often covers our services and the installation of new carpet, paint, baseboards, and anything else required for decontamination.

 

What to do if you don’t have insurance or your claim is denied

BioTechs understands that our services are needed in times of tremendous chaos. We are here to compassionately but confidently walk you through all possible payment options, which eases the emotional and financial strain that tragedy unexpectedly brings.

Filing a claim through the Texas Crime Victims Compensation Program may be an avenue for those without insurance, or when insurance companies deny coverage. Upon qualification, this program pays up to $2,250 to assist families with the cost of crime scene cleanup.

In extreme financial hardship, you may qualify for a Family Crisis Discount offered by BioTechs. This option is available to provide support to loved ones when they most need it.
