Bio Recovery Expectations

Tri State Bio Recovery, working outside of the NYC metro area, is dedicated to helping you begin the rebuilding process following a tragic event, such as a homicide or suicide. As a professional crime scene cleanup company, we know how hard it is for families or business owners grappling with a recent tragedy to manage crime scene remediation once the investigation is over and the police are gone. There is no reason to take on this burden alone.

Our technicians are experts at providing full crime scene cleanup services following a forensic team investigation. We are trained to handle potentially infectious materials, as well as understand the emotional stresses that accompany such an event. We will get your home or business back in order, while offering sensitivity and compassion to all involved in the process.

Family members or friends should not have to take on the emotional burden of crime scene cleanup, nor should they put themselves at risk by potentially mishandling potentially infectious materials. As you process a tragedy, the last thing you should be concerned with is cleanup or the cost of our services.

Tri State Bio Recovery’s team of highly-professional experts is ready to jump in and handle the cleanup properly – we will even manage insurance claims on your behalf. Most home owners or business insurance covers cleanup for these tragic events. Crime Scene Cleanup is covered by most insurance companies under victim’s compensation. If you’re not sure if your insurance covers our services, we will gladly help you find out.

We aim to restore your home or business as close as possible to its original condition so that you can begin the healing process in a risk-free, thoroughly disinfected environment.

The Crime Scene Cleanup Process

At Tri State Bio Recovery, we use a systematic approach to cleaning that ensures that each and every crime scene meets or exceeds hospital-grade disinfection standards. Our fully trained technicians are skilled in removing all types of harmful biological contaminants. As remediation specialists, our primary goal is to preserve your property and return your home to a safe, livable condition. We’re able to accomplish this by through four steps:

1) Establish Control Areas

For control over areas with harmful contaminants, our team uses proven sanitation procedures that establishes three zones. These zones allow us to separate the affected area from other parts of the building to prevent cross-contamination. These zones include:

  • A Control Zone which is the affected area
  • A Buffer Zone where our team puts on personal protective equipment
  • A Clean Zone which is where tools and equipment are stored

Every crime scene is treated as though it contains a life-threatening infection. We do this because some of the worst viruses are able to survive in blood and biological materials.

2) Crime Scene Cleaning

Our team starts by removing all traces of dirt, chemicals, blood and biological materials from the control zone. Personal property that cannot be remediated is disposed of properly and treated as medical waste.

3) Sanitization

After cleaning, technicians treat the control zone with disinfectants by spraying surfaces. Following treatment, the crew wipes all surfaces manually a second time before testing the area to ensure it reaches the right sanitation level.

4) Deodorization

In the final step, we use a deodorizer to eliminate the possibility of any lingering odors.

It’s also important that we note that in many crime scene cleanup scenarios, we need to remove contaminated objects that could pose a threat to your physical well-being. In the case of an unattended death, there’s much more to crime scene cleaning than just removing a mattress or another part of a room. Our team is trained to also remove carpets, hardwood floor, tile floor as well as sub flooring, walls and ceilings to ensure that all contamination that has penetrated the structure is eliminated.

Types of Crime Scene Cleaning


Homicides are devastating events that leave a bio-hazardous mess for the family or loved ones of the victims to negotiate following a police investigation. Tri State Bio Recovery will remove that burden from the grieving by providing thorough cleanup and proper sterilization. Our technicians are compassionate and sensitive to the emotional challenges that often follow violent crimes. Removing painful visual reminders is the first step in the healing process. We will restore the environment to cleanliness, while also providing thorough decontamination and safety from future hazards.


We know how hard it is for families once the police and medical examiner leave after a loved one takes their own life. The feeling of being left alone to deal with the aftermath is something no one should ever have to experience. We are here for you 24 hours a day 365 days a year. After the authorities leave, don’t be overwhelmed-call us. We will take the first steps towards restoring your home so that you can make arrangements and gain support from your friends or family during this difficult time.

Bodily Fluid and Blood Cleanup

Special precautions need to be taken to protect against bloodborne pathogens. Biohazard situations involving bloodborne pathogens, can expose people to bloodborne viruses such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, and other harmful pathogens. Depending on the environment that the pathogens exist in, they can potentially stay in a deceased person for two weeks. Tri State Bio Recovery works to alleviate these infectious materials and restore your home to the way it was.
