How is payment handled? Will my insurance pay for your services?
Many remediation jobs are covered by homeowner’s insurance or the equivalent (e.g., insurance held by a landlord or business owner). For example, crime scenes, unattended death, medical traumas, and damage from animals like raccoons and skunks are generally covered by insurance. In these cases, On Call Bio New York will take the insurance information, complete the remediation, and work directly with the insurance company to submit the claim. The insured will only be responsible for their insurance deductible.
When work is not covered by homeowner’s insurance, or the insured chooses not to use homeowner’s insurance, On Call Bio New York will provide a cost estimate. Before work begins, On Call Bio New York requires a 50% down payment. The remaining payment will be collected after the work is complete. Remediation of mice droppings, cat urine, and hoarding is generally not covered by insurance.
When should I call professional trauma cleanup company?
In general, the answer is “if you do not feel comfortable or safe cleaning it up yourself, you should call a professional cleanup company.” In so many instances, family members and friends cannot emotionally handle cleaning up after a traumatic event.
Equally important, employees, family members, and friends generally do not have the right tools—or experience–to ensure that blood and other biohazards are cleaned properly. If they are not cleaned properly, odors and diseases/bacteria can linger as unwanted reminders of the traumatic event. If proper protection is not used, individuals doing the clean-up, and others with whom they come into contact, can be in danger of being injured or becoming ill.
Whether the situation involves tear gas, suicide, accident, unattended death, hoarding, or a communicable disease, calling a professional trauma cleanup company can provide the peace of mind that the situation has been handled properly. Let On Call Bio New York help you clean-up properly!
What type of cleaning process does On Call Bio New York use? Is it safe?
On Call Bio New York’s treatment process depends on the situation at hand. In most cases, we use multiple specialty products to clean, sanitize, and deodorize the affected property. While they are powerful cleaners, these products are also safe for the environment and the people who are in the property.

Do I need to present while you work?
That is entirely up to you! Some individuals find that they cannot return to the home until after it has been cleaned up. They may ask a friend or relative to be present instead. Others want to be at the home or office during the remediation. Whether or not they observe the cleanup, they feel more comfortable being present themselves. Still others are in and out, working or attending to other pressing tasks. On Call Bio New York is comfortable with whatever is comfortable for you.
