Our Beginnings

SCU Services started through Brandon Catchen who had been working in his family funeral business for over a decade in Northern Kentucky. Through numerous and various opportunities in working in this field, Brandon saw the importance of his work and how he could be of service to families in times of need.

As knowledge of his expertise grew, grieving families often approached Brandon with assistance to clean up a decomposition, homicides, and/or suicides. Thus, SCU Services was created to be that answer in 2019. We believe that no one should clean up a loved one and have that be someone’s last memory.

SCU started to grow its reputation and quality of services in Northern Kentucky as Brandon continued to work in the Funeral Home during the day and SCU at night.

In Fall of 2021, Brandon and Eric Northrup, an entrepreneur with a knack for growing businesses, started having conversations of what SCU could be not just in Northern Kentucky but expanding into Cincinnati. Both decided to use their complementary skill sets to dream and grow a business that values people and provides consistent and quality work.

Our Mission

The mission of SCU Services is to redeem life’s tragedies one job at a time. This statement is integral in who we are, what we believe, and how we do our job. Redemption means to repurchase or restore worth back into a person or situation. We seek to provide hope and mercy to a grieving family assuring them that we will remediate and redeem this tragic event for the next person or family that would live there.

This is not a job to us. This is a calling to care and love the broken hearted.

Our Vision

The vision of SCU Cincinnati is to establish ourselves as the leading biohazard company in Greater Cincinnati and the surrounding areas. Our focus with each customer is to relieve, remediate and restore hope and mercy after a tragic situation.

We relieve by offering sympathy and care from our first interaction to the last, assuring the customer of the clean up process and our active involvement with their insurance allowing them to grieve appropriately. Next, our certified and trained professionals quickly and efficiently remediate all harmful substances in the affected area with state of the art chemicals in the industry. The job is not done until we can effectively restore the tragedy to its original condition.

CORE Values

These are the VALUES that our company runs on, we never compromise on these commitments for ourselves and to our customers. You can rest assured that when SCU Services is working for you that the job will be done to the highest degree of integrity. That’s a guarantee!
