Specific to you – General Info
- There are many agencies and organisations that provide support to families of, and victims of crime. You may be able to receive assistance during this difficult process.
- Some or all of the cost of remediating the site of the incident may very well be covered by insurance – either yours, or the owners’. It is worth your while to investigate. Forensic Clean provide detailed reports for insurance purposes when required.
- You do not have to know every detail of the clean-up or remediation process. You are very welcome to have a copy of the report, but this is not expected.
- When you engage Forensic Clean you are given information about what to expect, and about how the process works. You have already had a nasty shock, and we don’t want any more coming because of our work.
- Because we are attending the location of the crime or trauma (or having the vehicle delivered to our workshop), we are often able to locate important items for you, such as keys or papers, so that you do not have to when you may be in a vulnerable state.
- Our sister company Superhero in Disguise, is able to offer a complete and complimenting domestic cleaning service, which means that all of the property is intensively cleaned from top to toe, and is stripped of reminders of the crime and trauma. This makes your re-entry much easier than it would otherwise be. We also work with a raft of skilled tradespeople to offer complete renovating services. We find that often our clients want to repair or improve a property either for sale, or reuse, after a crime or trauma has occurred there.
- We feel honoured to serve our clients in this time of stress, grief and emotional turmoil, and our actions reflect our passion to provide excellent service, when you need it most.
