If you find yourself dealing with the aftermath of a violent crime or suicide, the last thing you should be worried about is the cleanup. Blood and other biological material are best left to professionals to clean and service. Specialists who are trained to sanitize a crime scene and guarantee a 100% biohazard-free environment once complete.
Choosing A Crime Scene Cleanup Service
Tragedy has no timeline. The best crime scene cleanup services are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As soon as police or other authorities give you permission, you’ll want a professional. They’ll ensure your place is cleaned within hours so you won’t be surrounded by the aftermath any longer than necessary.
Full Compliance Crime Scene Cleanup
A thorough cleanup is only part of the job. It is also important for professional cleaners to comply with guidelines established by local authorities, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Reference Guide for Trauma and Crime Scene Biological and Infections Hazard Cleanup. There are specific procedures for the removal of agents that can leak into the surrounding environment and cause disease. This means a standard cleanup service is not capable of handling the aftermath of death or a severe injury properly.
Biohazards have the potential to induce an array of negative health effects. For example, blood that has stained a carpet will likely soak through the flooring beneath. This biohazard must be removed in a timely and nuanced manner so it does not remain in the carpet or the supporting understructure. Bodily fluids have the potential to transmit diseases ranging from cholera to the flu, H1N1, TB, HIV/AIDS, Type A/B hepatitis etc. A cleanup crew with specialized knowledge and equipment are necessary to remove, safely transport and dispose of all waste materials.
Tools To Get The Job Done Right
Crime scene cleanup and biohazard removal require the use of idiosyncratic tools that the average cleanup crew does not own or know how to use. A crime scene cleaning crew must also don protective gear so they are not exposed to hazardous materials. Some tools can be reused while others must be disposed of after a single use. Specific types of waste must be placed in certain containers. A qualified cleanup crew will understand which chemicals to use and the exact amount required to sanitize the scene.
