Navigating Biohazard Cleanup in an Automobile

Mar 18, 2024

As a professional biohazard company, we often encounter scenes that require expert remediators to restore the vehicle’s safety. The primary reasons we’re called for automobile incidents are self-inflicted injuries, such as suicides or drug overdoses. These situations are fraught with grief and guilt as loved ones mourn and contemplate the vehicle’s future steps.

Challenges in Automobile Cleanup 

Cleaning up after such incidents demands careful handling of biohazard materials like blood and drug paraphernalia. Our professional cleanup crews adhere to strict protocols to ensure safety and restore a clean environment. Every nook and cranny of the automobile must be addressed to guarantee proper remediation, reducing the risk of contracting bloodborne pathogens for you or your employees. 

When dealing with a deadly fentanyl overdose, extreme caution is necessary due to the potential harm even small doses of fentanyl on the skin can cause. At SCU Services, we utilize state-of-the-art chemicals scientifically proven to disinfect fentanyl.

Does Insurance Cover?

In our experience, most auto insurance policies do not cover self-inflicted wounds or drug overdoses. This is primarily because the vehicle was stationary when the tragedy occurred. However, at SCU, we advocate on your behalf, presenting the incident’s facts and pictures to maximize your chances of securing coverage. We understand the odds are about 50-50, but we promise to do everything possible to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Our goal is to assist you without pressure, respecting your readiness for each step.


At SCU Services, we comprehend the emotional and logistical hurdles of biohazard cleanup following self-inflicted injuries or drug overdoses in automobiles. Our top priority is to provide compassionate and thorough cleanup while prioritizing safety. Despite the complexities, we commit to advocating for you and striving to secure insurance coverage. Our mission is to alleviate your burden and restore the vehicle to a safe condition, supporting you every step of the way.
