8 Qualities To Look For In A Biohazard Company

8 Qualities To Look For In A Biohazard Company

When it comes to cleaning up crime scenes, suicides, unattended deaths, and other traumatic events, you may not be sure who to call or how to know if you are dealing with a reputable business. There are specific traits to look for when vetting biohazard cleaning companies. Choose a company that possess all of the following traits:


  1. Local: It might not seem like an important detail initially, but a local company can respond quicker when you call. Talking directly to someone who lives in your same community without having to leave a message with a call center, then waiting for a call back is a small detail that makes a huge difference.
  2. Certifications: It may surprise you to learn that there is only one state- Georgia- that requires a license to become a crime scene cleaner in the US. Florida and California require permits for biohazard remediation companies, and more states may begin to require a license or permit in the future. Until the industry becomes more regulated, finding companies that have certifications is a good idea. These companies have gone above and beyond to learn the proper cleaning methods and safe handling procedures of biohazardous materials, including removal, transport, and disposal of the waste voluntarily.  T.A.C.T. North Atlanta is licensed for biohazard remediation in the State of Georgia.
  3. Insured: If, during the cleanup process, your property becomes damaged, you want to know that you will not be held liable for the cost to repair the damage. Business insurance is meant to protect you and the company providing the cleanup services if damage occurs.
  4. Experienced: It's important to choose a company with experience in biohazard cleanup. Dealing with traumatic events and hazardous materials requires specialized knowledge and skills that come with years of experience.
  5. Responsive: A reputable biohazard cleaning company should be responsive and available when you need them. They should prioritize your needs and be able to provide prompt assistance.
  6. Helps with Insurance Claims: What happens following a traumatic event can be overwhelming, and navigating the insurance process adds to the stress. A reliable biohazard cleaning company should be knowledgeable and willing to assist you with filing insurance claims and providing the necessary documentation.
  7. Answers Your Questions: A trustworthy company will be open and transparent, willing to address any concerns or questions you may have. They should provide clear explanations of their services, procedures, and pricing.
  8. Provides Valuable Information When Needed: Biohazard cleaning companies that genuinely care about their clients' well-being will offer additional information and resources to help you through the recovery process. This may include guidance on emotional support services or recommendations for professionals who can assist with related issues.

Not many biohazard cleaning companies can say that they match each of these traits. T.A.C.T. North Atlanta is one of the few that can. We work with law enforcement, first responders, business owners and homeowners, providing emergency crime scene cleaning services 24/7.
