Crime Scene Clean-Up
Our Crime Scene Clean-up Services:
Microtech Environmental Services Corp. provides meticulous and thorough crime scene clean-up (CSCU).
We treat, decontaminate, clean, package, and remove the aftermath.
- Decomposing body (decom)
- Blood (serum, plasma, etc.)
- Body parts (organs, tissue, bones, skin, appendages, etc.)
- Bodily fluids (saliva, breast milk, vomit, tears, sweat, nasal secretions, sputum, urine, feces, etc.)

Since 1992, Microtech has become the leader in biohazard and toxic hazardous waste cleanup in the Metro New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut area.
Our Crime Scene Cleaners have undergone specialized crime scene clean-up training and certification (e.g. “OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens 29 CFR 1910.1030″, “Cleaning Biological Contamination in the age of Ebola”, etc.).
We restore the area to a safe, clean environment.
After the medical examiner is finished, our crime scene cleaners (technicians) decontaminate the area. The process usually takes 3 hours to 2 days to complete (massacres can take weeks), depending on whether it is surface cleaning without blood or extreme cleaning with blood, bodily fluids, organs, tissue, and/or waste.
