We partner with police, local governments, communities, and other groups to clean up crime scenes, even after a death or trauma. We have a professional team that is fully equipped with the proper supplies, tools, and training. These experienced and certified employees will remove any health risks, including potentially life-threatening diseases that may be present.
When beginning to clean up a crime scene, certain biohazards may expose people to potential bloodborne pathogens. These may include COVID-19, Hepatitis-B, Hepatitis-C, HIV, Clostridium Difficle (C. Diff), and MRSA.
At CWF Restoration, we have a professionally trained team to sanitize and disinfect areas exposed to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Check out our COVID-19 disinfection services page for more information.
There is also concern about exposure to airborne pathogens, which can be extremely dangerous due to their invisible nature. All cases should be treated as if the above risks were present. You have nothing to worry about; trust our cleanup professionals to ensure that all biohazards are eliminated from the crime scene!
We have provided our service to different individuals during their time of need ranging from homeowners, government agencies, and businesses.
We are rated as the best emergency restoration company in the area. Our crews are OSHA HAZWOPER and OSHA BBP certified; and they’re always prepared for any situation. That’s how we stack up against the competition.
Step 1: Damage Assessment – We use our three-dimensional room mapping camera and technology called “Matterport” to do a pre-scan.
Step 2: Establish Three Main Zones: The first is a control zone, where the incident occurred, the second is a buffer zone to avoid cross-contamination, and the third is cleaned to prepare the necessary tools.
Step 3: Biological Removal – Biological fluids will be removed from the structure within the control zone and properly disposed of.
Step 4: Content Manipulation – To allow access to the structure within the control zone, the content will be moved.
Step 5: Surface Preparation – All remaining obstructions within the control zone are removed in preparation for the 3-step biological wash.
Step 6: Pre-ATP Test – Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a test to be performed before the 3-step biological wash. The ATP pre-test will measure the residual organic matter that is still present in the structure within the control zone.
Step 7: Biological Wash, Phase One – The structure within the control zone shall be thoroughly washed in preparation for the disinfection phase.
Step 8: Biological Wash, Phase Two – The structure within the control zone shall be thoroughly disinfected, allowing for appropriate wetting/drying times.
Step 9: Biological Wash, Phase Three – The structure within the control zone will be thoroughly washed one last time, removing any chemical residue or odor.
Step 10: Post-ATP Test – A post-ATP test will be performed to ensure that all residual organic matter present in the pre-ATP test has been removed within the control zone. The result will be zero.
Step 11: Path of Egress (POE) – After the control area has been thoroughly cleaned, the hard surfaces inside the POE will be disinfected.
Step 12: Final Site Inspection and Walk-Through – The final walkthrough will be conducted with the contract signer along with a post-scan using “Matterport.”
We are working with local fire and police departments as a preemptive response measure to the growing threat of the COVID-19 coronavirus. We support these front-line workers who are always serving our community to stay one step ahead!
CWF Restoration understands how difficult and traumatic an event like this can be. Whether at home or your workplace, we are here to help you through the entire process. One of the key ways is with our Victim Assistance Program, providing those who are experiencing a loss.
