Biohazard & Trauma Scene Cleanup Company In Phoenix

Do you need bio-cleaning after a traumatic event?

Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards. Sanitizing a trauma situation involves eradicating microscopic particulates such as bacteria and viruses to ensure a clean and healthy space. HRS Disaster Restoration follows IICRC s540 standards, providing the highest industry standard of trauma and crime scene clean-up. Our highly trained technicians will decontaminate your property, working in coordination with fire departments and police to help you through this process as efficiently and quickly as possible.

Bio-Cleaning & Trauma Services

Bio-cleaning is necessary for trauma scene cleanups such as homicides, suicides, hoarding, and mold removal

HRS Restoration Services’ bio-cleaning team of professionals swiftly and expertly analyzes the hazards at hand, cleans and removes debris, disinfects, and reconstructs or makes repairs when necessary. 

Surface level cleaning only removes visible evidence of the incident whereas sanitizing reduces the occurrence and growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Disinfecting is the highest level of cleanliness since it kills microscopic organisms that you can’t see that can be harmful to your health. 

Our bio-cleaning services will eliminate all biohazards and pathogens and then our biohazard restoration team can return your home or office to a safe and livable condition.

 

Crime Scenes

Crime scene cleanup follows a chaotic situation. You may have property or structural damage, bullets embedded in walls, or even the presence of tear gas. 

Once law enforcement has wrapped up their work, HRS Restoration Services can complete trauma scene cleanup.

 

Unattended Deaths

An unattended death is when someone dies but their body is not found for days, weeks, or even longer. 

Once decomposition occurs, bodily fluids and potentially harmful bacteria are released, which can negatively impact a person’s health as well as the surrounding environment. The HRS Restoration Services’ team will clean, sanitize, disinfect and remove noxious odors.

 

Homicides

Blood, bodily fluids, and property damage may be present in your home or office following a homicide

HRS Restoration Services will contain the affected areas to prevent cross-contamination, remove all traces of blood and biological materials, disinfect and deodorize, and test to make sure the area is pathogen-free.

 

Suicides

Along with homicide, suicide presents damage that goes beyond your property. 

Our trained and experienced team will clean, sanitize, disinfect, and utilize the latest technological advancements to restore your home or office to a safe and welcoming environment.

 

Mold Removal

Mold can be particularly dangerous to those with underlying health problems and pre-existing respiratory issues. Mold spores are not always visible on the surface and can lurk within your walls and under your flooring. 

HRS Restoration Services’ mold remediation and restoration team has the technology to hone in on the hidden, noxious mold and ensure it’s gone for good.

HRS Restoration Services – Phoenix

When disaster strikes, HRS’s 24 hour restoration services are here for your emergency cleaning and professional restoration needs. In addition to water extraction and water damage restoration, HRS offers the following emergency restoration services:

Water Extraction & Water Damage Restoration

Discovering water damage in your home or business—whether from a flood, a dishwasher malfunction, or a sewer backup—can feel devastating. And it can be a serious problem if not dealt with properly. In addition to causing damage, water can also spread contaminants that may lead to disease. A quick response to water intrusion is imperative due to the invasive properties of moisture:

  • Within minutes, moisture-sensitive surfaces swell and disfigure. Paper goods (books, documents, pictures) can be ruined and stains from furniture start to appear on carpeting, which can be permanent.
  • Within hours, drywall softens and warps, and wooden furniture can be permanently damaged. If carpet becomes delaminated (the primary backing separates from the secondary backing), it can cause irreparable damage.
  • Within days, fungi and bacteria begin to grow and spread. Foul odors start to permeate your property.

HRS’s IICRC certified clean-up crews are composed of expert technicians—including Master Water Restorers—who will ensure you receive the highest quality water removal and water clean-up services. Once the cause of the water emergency is mitigated and clean-up has been completed, our construction team can provide the building services you need—such as drywall, painting, flooring, electrical, and plumbing—to return your home or business to its original state.

Our local water restoration specialists are standing by 24/7/365 to help you through your water emergency!

Fire Damage & Restoration

A fire can be the most traumatic and devastating experience a home or business owner ever faces. In a best case scenario, it can cause minor smoke damage; in a worst case scenario, it can obliterate an entire structure. HRS will help you navigate these stressful circumstances and bring your property back to a safely inhabitable state.

The fire damage restoration professionals at HRS are available 24 hours a day! By carefully following our proven procedures, we ensure your property is brought back to the safe, comfortable space that existed before the fire damage and smoke damage. This begins with a property inspection to assess the level of structural damage and content damage. We will report our findings to you and answer any questions you may have so you are fully informed and understand what results can be reasonably expected.

In simple terms, returning your home or business to its pre-fire state consists of three general elements: structural damage restoration, content restoration and/or removal, smoke mitigation, and odor mitigation. Making sure your property is structurally sound is a priority. If there are stability issues, our professional restoration team can provide full construction services to rectify the situation. We will also remove any of your belongings that have been burned beyond repair, including items containing synthetic materials. Any items that are salvageable will be repaired and returned both to minimize cost to the home or business owner as well as to help lessen the anxiety of loss; unsafe items will be disposed of. Finally, our disaster clean-up team will remove all smoke residue, including the pervasive odor. Our IICRC certified Odor Control Technicians will use odor removal techniques include thermal fogging, high-level ozone deodorization, and hydroxyl deodorization.

Mold Inspection, Testing, & Remediation

No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues. Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.

Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue. Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations. HRS’s experts will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.

Due to the possible toxicity of the mold in your home or business, it’s important to have mold removal handled by professionals. Our Phoenix mold remediation specialists are IICRC certified in Applied Microbial Remediation, ensuring all aspects of the mold abatement are handled safely.

Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present. However, it’s important to note that in our increasingly global marketplace, many building materials are imported from abroad, and not all countries have the same stringent guidelines as the US. Because of this, it is possible to come across asbestos in newer structures, especially commercial buildings.

The hazardous nature of asbestos abatement calls for professional remediation to ensure safe removal and disposal. HRS will extract all asbestos from your property to bring it back to a safely inhabitable space. Once the asbestos remediation is complete, our restoration team can rebuild the affected areas.

Reconstruction & Restoration

Handling a home or commercial property’s disaster situation requires both mitigating the issue and rebuilding the affected areas of the property. Once the emergency has been taken care of—whether it’s water damage, fire damage, mold remediation, trauma clean-up/bio-cleaning, or asbestos abatement—the property will need to be restored. This could include structural repairs, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and/or landscape replacement … just to name a few. As a fully licensed general contractor, we can provide these services to homeowners as well as commercial properties. Our work ranges from basic repairs to complex, multi-faceted projects.

Our reconstruction efforts extend to your belongings affected by the disaster. Our content restoration program will repair any salvageable items including furniture, clothing, and electronics.

Commercial Restoration

Dealing with a disaster situation at a commercial property type requires an additional skill set. Unlike a residence, commercial buildings have employees and, often, patrons that are affected by an incident such as a water event or smoke damage. HRS will provide the necessary remediation services efficiently and discretely. Regardless of when the damage occurs—during business hours or in the middle of the night—HRS is available to remedy the situation. Water damage … storm damage … mold remediation … fire/smoke mitigation … HRS’s professional technicians are ready to bring your property back to its pre-disaster state.

Even well-maintained properties can experience the need for emergency restoration services. Whether you manage or own a hospital, school, apartment complex, office building, hotel, church, or retail establishment, HRS can handle your situation and our IICRC technicians can give you the peace of mind that your property will be professionally repaired.

Our general contracting services include preconstruction services, value engineering, subcontractor solicitation and management, quality and cost control, change order management, safety plan and inspection, documentation management, status reports and record keeping, and project close out.
