Tucson is located in southern Arizona within Pima County and has a population exceeding half a million residents. As in any densely populated metropolitan area, instances of residents passing away alone and unattended are not uncommon.

BioteamAZ is a family-owned and locally operated biohazard and death cleanup company, servicing Tucson and all four corners of the State of Arizona since 2011. We’ve spent our lives trying to help people, which has led us to a niche field in which we get to help people through some of the darkest moments of their lives.
We’ve made it our mission to provide our clients with the absolute best possible care. You can count on us to demonstrate compassion and discretion throughout every step of the death cleanup process. With the rise of numerous unlicensed and unprofessional cleanup companies, we’ve made sure to hold ourselves and all our technicians to the same professional standards:
Death scenes can not only be traumatic, but also pose numerous health risks to those in the vicinity. Due to the health risks associated with dead bodies, most first responders will recommend that you consult with a professional biohazard cleaning company. The highly skilled death cleanup specialists from BioteamAZ have been extensively trained in the standards set forth by ANSI, IICRC, and OSHA to ensure we return your property to a safe and habitable space.
Unattended Death Cleanup – Occasionally there are instances in which a person passes away alone in their home, vehicle, or other location, and they are left undiscovered for an extended amount of time. This is known as an unattended death.
Suicide Cleanup – For many, death by suicide is a subject they are aware of but have never had to deal with. For those families who are not so fortunate, suicide is a word that can barely begin to describe the loss and trauma they have experienced.
Homicide Cleanup – Homicide is defined as the act of one person killing another person. This general term indicates that the “homicide” can occur in any place, with or without reason, and regardless of the cause of death.
The specifics of someone’s death can provide valuable insight regarding the methods of cleanup and disinfection necessary to ensure the area is safe from bloodborne pathogens, bacteria, and viruses. Some of the details we may ask for include:
Traumatic incidents are hard enough to deal with without extra worries over cleanup and insurance, so our Tucson crew conducts complete pre- and post-cleaning assessments, gathers important documents, and supports you through the whole insurance claims process to lift those burdens.
Bacteria & Germ Testing
On an average day, if a person sees something that looks clean, they assume it is clean. However, we know that a visual inspection is only the beginning. Our technicians at BioteamAZ perform ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) tests at the beginning and end of our cleanup service. The ATP test allows us to measure the presence of actively growing microorganisms (bacteria). This helps us assess the impact of viable bacteria and organic debris on the property.
Any porous or semi-porous items that have come into contact with bodily fluids will need to be properly treated and, most of the time, will need to be disposed of at an approved biohazardous waste treatment facility. This document is supported by photographs to show proof of loss of the items. This is especially important if you need to show proof of loss of personal property to your insurance company.
Paper is highly porous. If it has been directly impacted with blood or other potentially infectious materials, it must be transported to a medical waste facility for destruction. If we discover that any important documents have been damaged, the senior technician will discuss with you the procedures that need to be taken in order to salvage as much information from the documents as possible.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards and upon request will provide a post-remediation certification to you, property management, or your insurance company. We want to provide you with peace of mind that the property is safe to return to once we have completed our final evaluation.
Once we can get access to the home, you do not need to be physically with us for any step of this process. We can work with you remotely regarding any necessary paperwork, and can coordinate with you regarding returning keys, personal property, etc.
We are prepared to help you out no matter the situation. If there are illicit drugs on the premises, we can assess and properly treat the impacted areas to neutralize any trace amounts or residue that is left behind. Our standards and attention to detail mean you can feel safe and secure in your home or property at the completion of our service.
You may not need biohazard services at that point, but it is still good to have us come out and provide a free consultation. We can help you assess any areas that may need to be disinfected to reduce the risk from other potentially infectious materials or future odor issues related to the homicide.
Unfortunately, it is a common occurrence. However, with the increased connectivity of people through technology, the instances seem to be decreasing. Additional focus during the COVID-19 pandemic on the health and wellness of others around us may have reduced the frequency as well.
That will ultimately be a conversation between you and your insurance company. If an unattended death occurs in a vehicle, it is likely that the entire interior of the vehicle will need to be stripped out to ensure we can disinfect and deodorize every square inch. We will work in conjunction with your insurance company and your vehicle repair facility.
If this occurred in a property covered by insurance, we will work with you to start an insurance claim. In many cases, the insurance will cover the cost of the biohazard cleanup as well as the rebuild and replacement of items removed due to contamination (where applicable).
Our team consists of claims specialists, and an attorney to assist you with all needs that may arise from beginning to end. We are available 24/7/365.
Biohazard cleanup goes beyond crime scenes or unattended deaths. Homes and businesses often face situations like blood from injuries, bodily fluid spills, or unsanitary human waste. Our professional biohazard cleanup team has the training and experience necessary to safely remove these materials and remediate the affected areas.
Managing the aftermath of a crime extends beyond mere blood and bodily fluids. Whether arising from a violent incident or a non-violent offense, the implications of such scenes often require specialized cleanup, ensuring thorough restoration of your Scottsdale property.
Biohazardous events and accidents can pose additional health risks within homes. From mold infestations to water damage, our specialty cleanup services encompass various situations, including Hoarding Cleanup, Vehicle Cleanup, and Water Damage Cleanup.
A horrific event took place less than two weeks ago when a Tucson gunman killed three people and injured three others. In a series of senseless, violent acts, countless lives were shattered and heroes stepped forward to help those in danger at risk to themselves.
Accidents and violence can happen anywhere and anytime. Knowing this, BioteamAZ is always available around the clock to dispatch teams of professional biohazard cleaners to anywhere throughout the Avondale area and the larger state of Arizona.
