Who Cleans Up A Crime Scene?

Whether you are facing a residential or commercial blood cleanup, you are likely asking yourself the following questions:  Who cleans up a crime scene? Will my insurance cover this? Can my family or employees clean up blood? Should they?


In Pennsylvania and Ohio, there are currently no regulations that would prevent you from cleaning up a minor blood spill at your home.  However, the general guideline is that anything larger than a dinner plate should be remediated by a professional biohazard cleanup company.  


If the trauma occurs at a commercial property, the rules change dramatically.  OSHA has very strict guidelines about what an employer must provide to employees who clean up a crime scene or blood spill.  The employees are required to have annual training and PPE (personal protection equipment).


In the case of a suicide or trauma in which a family member cleans up the scene, the rate of adjunctive depression and thoughts of personal harm skyrockets.  Consideration must be taken for the emotional impact that a biohazard cleanup might have on those who are involved.

What Does Crime Scene Cleanup Cost?

Homeowner’s insurance, in most cases, covers the cost of remediation and replacement of materials.  Since dealing with that aspect adds another layer of stress to an already difficult situation, Steri-Clean personnel are more than happy to facilitate that process on your behalf. Let our professional and efficient staff ease the burden you find yourself with during this terrible time.


Regardless of where the trauma has occurred – at home or your place of business, or even in your automobile – technicians can be there quickly, and we can effectively carry out necessary remediations of biohazard material to eliminate any danger to the public. In many cases, commercial and automobile policies cover the associated costs, so that you won’t be stuck with the bill for a major cleanup operation.

When our Steri-Clean Pittsburgh representative comes to your location to evaluate the situation and formulate remediation strategies, we will arrive in unmarked vehicles, which do not announce to the whole neighborhood that something traumatic has happened.


We thoroughly understand that people who have to deal with the aftermath of a traumatic event are already badly shocked and emotionally distraught, so we do our best to avoid compounding the discomfort of the situation. We are quick, convenient, and efficient - getting you back to your normal life as quickly as possible!
