Who’s responsible for cleaning up trauma or crime scenes?
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.
