Crime scene cleanup is only the beginning

June 16, 2010
BILOXI, MS — After the meticulous process of crime-scene investigation comes another detail-oriented process — crime-scene cleanup, according to the Sun Herald.
That''s where Rachel Hanson steps in: Her Biloxi-based company, Bio-Clean Inc., cleans up crime scenes, including homicides and residual meth labs, in addition to suicides, natural deaths, accidents, distressed properties and hoarding situations, the article stated.
Sometimes people will attempt to clean up crime scenes on their own, exposing themselves to biohazard contamination and additional emotional distress as well as possibly breaking the law by incorrectly disposing of bodily fluids, the article noted.
Hanson said many people aren''t aware insurance usually covers most of the cost for the cleanup services which range from about $450 to several thousand dollars, depending on the situation.
According to the article, cleaning up residual meth labs is the most common business for her company, working about seven residual meth lab scenes to every other scene.
