Whether it is a crime or trauma scene, sewage backup, or a meth lab, we have a dedicated team of professionals that are specially trained to not only clean up the biological contamination or infectious waste, but to also create a setting that is both compassionate and respectful to all of those involved.
Homicide, Suicide and Violent Crimes
Following a death, the surviving family is often overwhelmed with emotions and grief. These scenes can be terrifying, resulting in family and friends experiencing additional emotional trauma. ODR can at least help remove the burden of dealing with the aftermath. We have experience to respond with sensitivity and compassion while maintaining our objectivity to begin the restoration process.
After a death in which the body is unattended, the scene can quickly become very dangerous due to the biological fluids, bacteria and mold spores. The odor can be overwhelming. Most people understand the risks of exposure to blood borne pathogens, such as HIV and Hepatitis, but other risks are associated with these scenes. Bacteria, insects, and mold can also become severe obstacles in the remediation process. These scenes are better left to professionals that specialize in blood and biological fluid recovery and odor control utilizing personal protective equipment and approved procedures.
Accidents and Injuries
Just because someone survives an injury or accident does not mean the aftermath is any less tragic. These scenes can be just as traumatic for family and friends. The same physical and emotional hazards still exist.
Violent activities often occur in a vehicle. Due to the environmental factors and the limited space, biological contamination can be much more dangerous. Proper decontamination and sanitation are key to restoring the vehicle to a usable state.
We often perform this type of cleaning service for those people who have been unable to take care of their property due to physical or mental limitations. Often, garbage, pet waste and other items with little obvious value accumulate to the point of rendering the dwelling unsafe. This creates issues such as fire hazards, odors, bacteria and mold colonies, insect or rodent infestation and decline of property value. ODR’s trained professionals can help by cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing what is salvageable and then safely removing and disposing of the excess.
There are many volatile chemicals used in the production of narcotics such as methamphetamines. The types of chemicals used are constantly changing as law enforcement cracks down on the manufacture of these illegal drugs. These hazardous chemicals are very dangerous and leave harmful residues throughout a structure leaving it unsafe for occupancy. ODR can help you assess the severity of the damage and determine what is necessary to make it fit for human habitation again.
Other Crime Scene Residues
Sometimes law enforcement is forced to use tear gas or pepper spray in order to protect the public and take control of a dangerous situation. It takes a specially trained professional to safely remediate the property after such an incident. Exposure to these irritating substances can cause severe allergic reactions and respiratory concerns.
In addition, law enforcement must use certain evidence gathering substances, such as fingerprint powder, in order to properly investigate a crime. ODR can help clean and restore your property after a crime scene investigation.
When someone breaks into your home or business, you may feel violated, or even unsafe. Not only do you have to deal with these emotional issues, you may have a mess to clean up through no fault of your own. ODR can help clean and deodorize to return your property to pre-loss condition.
Bird & Animal Feces
Those loveable creatures, whether they are pets or wild, may sometimes create a hygiene problem that is overwhelming for a property owner to deal with themselves. The trained technicians at ODR can help you clean and disinfect and take control of these difficult issues.
Water damage alone can be a difficult event to deal with. However, when you add in the bacteria and other contaminants associated with sewage, a trained professional is needed. ODR can help to safely remove the sewage contamination and make certain the structure is properly cleaned, disinfected and dried.
We Give You the Full Scope
Unless you have personally been involved in a process such as this, it is difficult to understand the full scope of what a family goes through. Each situation can be fully devastating to the family involved. At ODR we do not lose sight of this, and are sympathetic to their needs. We understand that the reason someone calls us is generally not for the biohazard aspect, it’s because they cannot emotionally deal with cleaning it up themselves, nor should they have to do it alone.
