As a homeowner, business owner, or property manager, you do everything you can to keep your property safe and secure. But no matter how hard you try, accidents and emergencies may still occur. This is why technical cleaning services exist.
If an unattended death, blood spill, suicide, or violent crime has occurred on your property or a property of a loved one, calling a professional technical cleaning company is the most effective and efficient way to clean the affected area and make your space safe once again.
Most people, however, probably wonder: what exactly are technical cleaning services? How do I know when I need these services? In this blog, we answer these questions and more to help you know when (and who) to call in the aftermath of an emergency on your property. Many are surprised to learn that, following a violent crime or death on your property, police and paramedics have no responsibility to clean the affected area.

WHAT ARE TECHNICAL CLEANING SERVICES?
Technical cleaning services provide sanitation and decontamination for jobs that standard cleaning companies aren’t equipped to handle. Your standard cleaning service is designed to clean everyday messes and can make your home or office look like new. However, they generally don’t have the tools, experience, or protective equipment to confront jobs when biohazardous materials and other potential hazards remain present. In these scenarios, you need the expertise of a technical cleaning company.
WHEN WOULD I NEED TECHNICAL CLEANING SERVICES?
As you can see, technical cleaning services respond to dire situations that everyday cleaning services can’t. Your standard cleaning company won’t have the necessary tools, personal protective equipment (PPE), or experience to safely and effectively sanitize areas exposed to blood, bodily fluids, or other biohazardous materials. This is when you need to call in the experts.
But when exactly would you require these professional services? To help guide you, we’re outlining some of the most common scenarios when someone would need to call in professional technical cleaning services:
1. Violent crime.
If a violent crime takes place on your property, the police secure the area and gather evidence, but they don’t assist in cleaning or repairing your damaged space. While these events might be rare, you shouldn’t have to worry about cleaning and sanitizing your home or office after a traumatic occurrence. Let a team of technical cleaning professionals do that for you.
2. Unattended death.
If someone dies alone and the incident isn’t reported, the body will quickly begin to decompose. Decomposition can pose a serious health risk as someone encountering the body will be exposed to bodily fluids and potential bloodborne pathogens. As time passes, the decomposition only grows worse, which is why you should never attempt this type of cleaning on your own.
In the tragic event of a suicide, loved ones should never have the responsibility of cleaning the aftermath. The emotional burden of losing someone close to you is enough. If you’re faced with a suicide, calling a technical cleaning company for suicide cleanup will ensure that the affected area is cleaned, sanitized, and returned to its original state so you can focus on healing.
4. Blood spill cleanup.
Following a violent crime, death, or accident, your property may be exposed to contaminating materials such as blood. These contaminating materials can compromise your furniture, walls, and carpet. Even if you clean the visible blood from your property, there still remains an unseen risk: bloodborne pathogens. Pathogens in human blood can transmit various diseases, including HIV and hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
According to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), hoarding refers to a condition when people “excessively save items that others may view as worthless.” While this may at first seem harmless, over time, hoarding can make a space completely unlivable and even pose health and safety risks. To safely and thoroughly clean a hoarding space, you need to call in professionals who have experience with this type of work.
6. Emergency board up.
Crime, vandalism, and extreme weather can cause extensive damage to your property. To protect your property and prevent additional damage, you may need emergency board up services. Our certified technicians will secure your property by boarding up windows and other vulnerable areas. They can also provide some guidance on the repairs you will need.
7. COVID-19 contamination.
2020 was a year unlike any other. Still reeling from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, life is slowly starting to return to normal for many homeowners and office managers. With employees gradually returning to their workspaces, it’s critical to ensure that your space has received a professional and thorough COVID-19 decontamination. Technical cleaning services can give you and your employees the confidence to safely return to the office.
8. Biohazard cleanup.
All of the prior scenarios call for professional biohazard remediation, which refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood and other bodily fluids that pose a health risk. However, this service also covers more cleaning scenarios as biohazard cleanup also covers meth lab contamination, chemical spills, animal waste or remains, and other substances that could pose a risk to your, your employees, or your family. In these scenarios, you’ll want a team of experts on your side.
