Basic Fees for Biohazard Remediation Services
We are able to offer affordably priced services more so than the franchised or corporate operators. This is because we are an independently and locally owned biohazard remediation service company. In addition, we offer a 10 percent discount on our services to members of the San Diego Memorial Society. A number of factors come into play when developing an estimate for our biohazard cleanup services.
- Our hourly charge is $250 for a skilled technician.
- Depending on the circumstances, we typically send one to two technicians to a cleanup job.
- Estimations of time likely to be spent on particular types of jobs are presented for your consideration in a moment.
There is a fee for disposal of each 43-gallon red hazardous waste bin used on a job of $250. We must charge the full fee, even if only a portion of a bin is used. Because, we’re not permitted by California law to store bins. The bins must be transported immediately from the cleanup scene to the biohazard waste treatment facility.
Unattended Death Cleanup
Included within our services is unattended death remediation (or undiscovered death remediation). Unfortunately, with sad regularity, people pass on for one reason or another alone. In some circumstances, when they die alone their remains aren’t discovered for a matter of a few days or even a few weeks in some situations.
The trauma of finding or learning of the unattended death of a loved one is significant. Our team at Eco Bear understands that the last thing a person needs in such a situation is additional grief caused by the need to clean up the death scene.
There are two primary factors that come into consideration when determining the cost of an unattended death biohazard cleanup. These are:
- the length of time from death to discovery of the body
- and the manner of death itself
An average unattended death cleanup job typically takes somewhere between six to eight man hours, for a total of between $1,500 and $2,000. Two red bins typically are used to disposed of biohazardous waste. This brings the total cost to approximately $2,000 to $2,500. The rate definitely depends on the two factors mentioned a moment ago – length of time since death and the manner of death. These factors contribute not only to how contaminated a death scene will be but also to the expanse or size of the area.
If there is a considerable amount of blood, bodily fluids, or other biological matter associated with the scene, or if the scene itself is more expansive and incorporates a broader swath of the premises, the cost is likely to be between $2,500 and $3,000 for such a job.
Another challenging situation our team of specialists addresses for our neighbors in the greater San Diego area is homicide cleanup. The two most common instruments of homicide are firearms and knives or blades. Homicide by firearm accounts for about 68 percent of wrongful deaths. Homicide by some type of blade is about 11 percent of wrongful deaths. Consequently, nearly 80 percent of homicides in San Diego will require at least some degree of biohazard cleanup. T based on the instrumentality utilized.
An average homicide cleanup job takes between six to eight man hours, for a total of between $1,500 and $2,000. Two red bins typically are used to disposed of biohazardous waste. This brings the total cost to approximately $2,000 to $2,500. If there is a considerable amount of blood associated with the scene, or if the scene itself is more expansive and incorporates a broader swath of the premises, the cost is likely to be between $2,500 and $3,000 for such a job.
Every day in Southern California, people die unfortunate accidental deaths, oftentimes on roadways but also in their own homes. Our company may be called in to undertake an appropriate cleanup depending on the nature of an accident. This includes the amount of time that elapses from the death to discovery of a deceased individual’s remains. You can trust our company to perform the appropriate biohazard cleanup.
The pricing for an accidental death cleanup closely follows that associated with a homicide. The average man hours involved in this type of job are likely to be similar. The net result is likely to be a total cost of approximately $2,000 to $2,500. If the scene itself is more expansive and incorporates a broader swath of the premises, the cost is likely to rise to be between $2,500 and $3,000.
