Who pays for the services?
Most home owners, business and auto insurance companies cover the cost of biohazard cleanup, and mold remediation. We have been successful in some circumstances getting meth and hoarding covered as well. If the victim of a crime has no insurance the State victims compensation fund may pay for some or all of the cleanup services. (crime related) There are no “free” entities that will cleanup any of these scenes. You can contact our office for a free quote.
