Trauma/Crime Scenes

It requires a significant amount of training and special knowledge to complete crime or trauma scene decontamination properly. This could involve the biologically contaminated scene of a death (homicide, suicide or accidental), or it could just mean cleaning difficult fingerprint dust and glass.  Federal regulations deem all bodily fluids to be biohazards, so any blood or tissue at a crime scene is considered a potential source of infection.  Different states have different requirements, but most don’t have any specified licensing required.  The specialty companies whose technicians perform this work provide their crews with OSHA required bloodborne pathogens training and personal protective equipment as well as recognized methods to effectively remove contamination safely.  CATCO’s crime and trauma scene crews efficiently clean the site and remove any debris while retaining the dignity of the property owners.  If repairs are then needed, CATCO’s construction division can give you a free estimate to complete the work.

Removing the evidence of a violent death is the responsibility of the property owner, who is frequently a member of the victim's family--not the paramedics, the firefighters, the police, nor the coroner’s office. Many first responders onsite know of companies like CATCO who perform trauma and crime scene clean-up.  CATCO’s emergency services staff provide access to this service 24 hours, 7 days a week.  CATCO can also handle any repairs that are needed after the cleaning and debris removal is performed. Our staff can provide you a free estimate for reconstruction to return your property to a prior loss condition.
