Mark Fagala, the founder of Fagala Biohazard Specialists, LLC has been serving the Carolina’s since 1988. Mark and his father Otis ran the mortuary division providing transportation & embalming service to funeral homes as well The North Carolina State Medical Examiner’s Office. After years of serving as a contract agent for the State ME Office the same questions were being asked.

Family members and property owners mistakenly thought that the police and the medical examiner would clean up after a traumatic death. After being told that these authorities did not clean these scenes, families had no recourse but to do it themselves. After Mark’s father past away he expanded the business and started offering crime scene cleaning (bio-recovery). Mark went to Ohio and took the American Bio-recovery Association’s course & test in 2004. ABRA is a nonprofit organization which promotes education, proficiency, and ethical standards for bio-recovery services. Members are sworn to uphold the highest levels of industry performance. This young industry is basically unregulated and is populated by companies with varying degrees of knowledge and abilities. That is why it is so important to know as much as possible about the companies that you may be referring, or contracting with.


I give my highest recommendation to Fagala Biohazard Specialists (FBS) in assisting with any needs regarding hoarding circumstances. My family and I will be forever grateful to Mark and his team for their outstanding services.

I just want to really thank you for what you did for me after my daughter, Brittany Bridges, was murdered last August. It is so overwhelming when something happens and one has no idea what you are supposed to do. Thank God for people like you who come in and clean up the reminders of the tragedy left behind.

I was so pleased with the service from Mark and his team! They were there when I needed someone the most! Wish I could give more than 5 stars.
