Case Study

A triple murder in a Chicago apartment caused severe blood and human pathogen contamination.  EGSL was contacted to determine the cleaning protocol and immediate damage control. EGSL prescribed the use of the disinfectant CDC 10 and the based demolition of all contaminated areas.  Once the demolition was completed, EGSL performed microbial testing and analysis to determine the success of the remediation.
