During the hours and days following a traumatic event or criminal activity in your California home, you need a rapid response from professional trauma and crime scene recovery specialists. This type of cleanup circumstance is like no other, with the potential for you and your family’s exposure to bloodborne pathogens or dangerous chemicals, among other hazards. Exacerbating the situation is the probability that you and your loved ones are also experiencing a range of painful emotions after the events that led to your cleanup challenge.
Professionals must respond to this kind of disaster as there are likely to be specific protocols required with regard to the cleanup and disposal of items and substances. These protocols may be based upon local, state, or even federal statutes, regulations, and rules. Specific personal protection safeguards and containment mandates may come into play, necessitating that those who respond follow strictly enforced steps or processes and use specialized equipment operated safely only by trained and certified experts.
Local authorities who responded to the original emergency may have a list of approved providers in your California community to help you obtain the services needed. Another useful resource for experienced, licensed, and certified restoration and remediation contractors would be your insurance company or state or local boards of health or similar governmental resources.
When seeking an appropriate crime or trauma scene recovery company be aware that a high level of training and expertise is mandatory, but you also need a company that provides their services with compassion and discretion. Ask for references or review testimonials concerning the company or companies you are considering, and make your choice only after you are convinced the tasks needed will be done, professionally and with empathy for you and your family.
The cost of having this type of service performed is frequently covered under homeowners insurance. Also, check with local and state governmental resources in your California area to see if any assistance is available. Take every opportunity to reach out for help during this tough time.
Check for current licenses and certifications when hiring a firm to help with crime and trauma scene cleanup. Expect a dedicated project manager from the company to walk you through the process and provide support at all times.
