Though these kinds of clean ups are not our main selling points, SERVPRO is still equipped to handle these losses. 

  • Bloodborne Pathogens
    • SERVPRO removes and disposes of bodily fluids, tissue and other potential pathogenic substances resulting from accident, trauma, crime or death. Technicians thoroughly clean, disinfect and deodorize the structure.
  • Methamphetamine Labs
    • Many of the chemicals used in the production of illegal drugs such as methamphetamine are volatile and can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. SERVPRO follows federal and state guidelines to properly clean all surfaces.
  • Crime Scene Residues
    • From fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals to tear gas and pepper spray residues, SERVPRO can clean and restore your property and contents.
  • Arson & Vandalism
    • SERVPRO is recognized as leaders at helping property owners recover quickly from fire and water damage. We also provide general cleaning and deodorization services for situations resulting from vandalism including graffiti, egg, spoiled foods and human or animal waste.
  • Sewage Backup
    • Sewage backups and back water intrusions are more than nasty, smelly deposits - these damages also introduce harmful microorganisms into a structure. SERVPRO removes the sewage, contaminants and moisture, disinfecting as they clean.

Biohazard Emergency Trauma Cleanup Trauma, Crime scene clean-up.

At SERVPRO® of Lexington-Bedford, our goal is to provide an emergency response whenever we are needed. Emergency situations include:

  • Standing water to be extracted (especially sewage)
  • Fire scene that needs to be secured
  • Biohazard

We have a production manager and crew on call through the night and over the weekend in order to respond to these emergencies as they arise.

Evening Trauma Scene

For example, a local property manager recently called us to a trauma scene at the end of the workday. Her tenant had fallen down a flight of stairs and through a plate glass window. Upon arrival, Production Manager Tim Owens found a mess of glass and blood that needed immediate attention. This situation presented not only a health risk for building occupants but also a horrific scene for them to observe.

After confirming the police investigation was complete, our crew began cleaning the debris and safely disposing of it as a biohazard. Instead of heading home for dinner with their families, they donned their personal protective equipment and contained all of the debris for proper disposal. This task lasted until nearly midnight, but our crew managed to get the site sanitized and safe for occupation.
