Caring & Compassionate Service

Licensed & Insured, Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. responds to incidents requiring crime scene cleanup and blood cleanup services throughout the State of Illinois. Crime scenes present a unique combination of problems for detectives and medical examiners, as well as for the crime scene cleaners who come in after the investigation is complete. 

Once removed, a body leaves behind both visual and microscopic traces that can prove harmful to those who may come into contact with them. Although the appearance of blood, bodily fluids and tissue warrants a thorough cleaning effort, it requires much more than simply wiping it up. This is where our crime scene cleanup technicians can help.

Crime scene cleanup involves a detailed procedure to detect, disinfect and completely remove all traces of bio-hazardous materials, to include but not limited to: blood, bodily fluids, tissue & bone matter, contaminated clothing and household goods, hypodermic needles, razor blades and other items that may pose a risk of injury or death. Although a visual inspection of a crime scene or a suicide scene may reveal a great deal of blood and bodily fluids about the area, an equal amount will be found by our technicians in areas that cannot be seen or easily accessed. It is vital that all traces of these elements be removed from a scene, whether a crime has been committed or not.

Technicians with Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. have received extensive training in crime scene cleanup, trauma scene cleanup, blood cleanup and in the use of various chemicals, all of which are OSHA approved and completely safe. In conjunction with specialized training in the detection and removal of biohazard materials, our technicians will restore your house or place of business to a safe environment.

Please, before you attempt to clean a crime scene or a scene affected by a suicide or decomposition, speak with a trained & certified technician. We have trained personnel standing by 24 hours a day to answer your questions. You will never be charged for your phone call or for asking questions. We are here to help you!

Have Questions?

This is not unusual and in most situations the blood does penetrate the top layer of flooring, whether it is tile, carpet or wood laminate. What we tend to find is blood and other body fluids will run to the seams and then underneath the uppermost layer of flooring. When this happens, we will recommend that our client allow us to pull up the flooring so we can adequately clean or remove the padding and subfloor. This is the only way to ensure all biohazards are removed. Leaving the biohazards will often cause an odor that will not go away until such time that the biohazards (e.g. blood and fluids) are removed.
Every situation is unique; however, in most situations the blood has traveled under or through the cushions and onto the springs and wood frame. Once this happens, we recommend that our clients allow us to completely dismantle and clean the sofa or recliner. However, this process does require us to cut out the affected areas, thus rendering the furniture unusable.
Yes, we will work with you to clean items that can be salvaged.
We can typically be ready to leave our office within about 90 minutes of a call for service. However, we must wait until the scene has been released by either the police department or coroner's office. Depending on the crime it may take a day or two before the scene is released.
Not every job we respond to involves a criminal act. When responding to a homicide or incident that involves trauma inflicted during the commission of a criminal act, the industry term "Crime Scene Cleanup" applies. For any other scene or incident whereby blood or body fluids are present, but a criminal act was not involved, we use the term biohazard remediation.
For nearly two decades our team has maintained a very close relationship with most companies that provide home owner's insurance. If you provide us with the name of your agent and a policy number, we'll make contact to establish a claim and determine what the insurance company will or will not cover. We'll then spend time to fully explain to you your options. Typically, we would simply collect the policy deductible from you and bill the rest to the insurance company.
