Windsor Crime Scene Cleanup

7/2/2018 (Permalink)

We have seen and heard of a lot of crime in the Sonoma County area due to the Valley Fire and other natural disaster distractions. However, there can also be other instances of crime that involve biohazards, vandalism, and arson. Local law enforcement, including police and sheriff, have contacted us personally during the instance of a homicide, suicide, vandalism, meth lab explosion, or discovery of a marijuana indoor growing operation. These are sensitive situations, and require our complete, 100% devotion and care. We wouldn’t want to be careless and put our crew, or the homeowners, in danger!

 We are known as a Windsor crime scene cleanup company! These types of jobs are unique, and not an everyday occurrence, thank goodness, but we are around if and when needed!

Geyserville Sewage Cleanup

Biohazard Geyserville Sewage Cleanup We figured a close up shot would be a little nauseating-this is before clean up, most of the damage was in the shower.
 

Gross, disgusting, icky-who's going to deal with it?

While most people can physically clean up a sewage mess-despite how unsettling it can be-doesn't mean the area will be clean. Just because the mess is done, doesn't mean the germs are. Geyserville sewage damage jobs are one of our most tedious (yet still performed) services. We follow health protocols, drying requirements, and want to make sure the area is sanitized and odor-free.

Geyserville sewage cleanup project

A very distraught homeowner called us after their sewer line backed up through their shower and toilet, leaving an incredibly dirty mess. Water from the mess traveled down the hallway (water travels through most materials, such as carpet, wood, and sheet rock), and the smell was unbearable.

Not wanting to risk anyone's health, the homeowner called SERVPRO of Sonoma County NE by the advice of their insurance agent. Call us today at 707-571-8333

Sonoma County sewage damage

Our sewage cleanup services

Typical sewage damage is due to a backup in a toilet. Sometimes, the backup can affect the bathbub due to the plumbing design. We always sanitize after every sewage damage clean up job, ALWAYS. We don't recommend anyone clean up sewage that doesn't have proper cleaning equipment such as high grade cleaner or PPE-if you have to ask what these are, you need to get a professional from SERVPRO.

Different categories of contaminated water

There are three levels of contaminated water-Category 1, 2, and 3. Category 1 deals with clean water, such as a leaking faucet or broken water supply line/pipe. Category 2 deals with mildly dangerous bacterial infested water, like toilet or dishwasher overfluw (no feces involved). The last category, Category 3, includes "flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth."

Healdsburg sewage cleanup: bacteria dangers


Bacteria buildup due to a sewage backup or spill not only smells repulsive and will leave scars on your nostrils, but the absorbtion of bacteria is very harmful on the human body.


If you have a sewage spill, cleaning it up yourself is NOT recommended. Raw sewage contains bacteria, parasites, and viruses which are incredibly harsh and possibly deadly. Gloves, body suits, and glasses are recommended to wear to avoid exposure.


Discard items contaminated


Any items that become contaminated by sewage or flood waters must be thrown out properly, not just in a standard dumpster or garbage can. To make things simpler and more thorough, contact SERVPRO of Sonoma County NE. We will work with your insurance company, as well as potentially any utilities who caused the sewage backup (this problem occasionally happens), so your home can be properly cleaned and sanitized. Healdsburg sewage cleanup workers are hard to come by; no one wants to deal with this type of mess. We are happy to make the sewage mess, smell, and frustration "Like it never even happened."

Cloverdale Biohazard Remediation

Biohazard Cloverdale Biohazard Remediation We rescued this bird while cleaning up animal remains and mold in an attic. Poor thing must have been terrified!

Most common biohazard remediation requests


The types of biohazard jobs where we get the most requests for clean up include: bodily fluids and waste, blood pathogens, homicide/suicide scene, sewage backup, accident scenes, and animal remains. 


What other kind of biohazards can we clean up?


Well, believe it or not, meth labs are given to us when they blow!  It's dangerous stuff, and illegal-for many reasons. We can also deal with homes where hoarders or squatters lived, tear gas clean up, chemical clean up, and anything else that you wouldn't want to touch without PPE (personal protective equipment)


We can perform any type of biohazard remediation, and perform it safely. 


Many people are at a loss of who to contact; 537-6635 is our direct number and we are available 24/7 for anything that happens.
