Crime Scene Cleaning & Forensic Cleaning | Nationwide Services
Understandably, the death of someone close to you such as family or colleague in your work is a very traumatic event. The scene that results often must be cleaned properly to reduce the risk of biohazard contamination through contact with bodily fluid that spreads in the household or office.
The task of cleaning up a death scene, trauma or crime scene is not like any ordinary clean. It is a far more complex and specialised type of cleaning that requires specific training and experience. Crime scene cleaners are experts in their field and are able to identify the biohazard dangers in a crime scene and know how to correctly clean the area and eliminate the biohazard danger and restore your house to a safe and habitable state. What looks like some trace of blood on the carpet can turn into a very large bloodstain that has soaked in underneath the floorboards and into the substrate beneath. If the blood hasn’t been correctly cleaned and removed, it can pose health hazards to future occupants of the house.
Quite often this can involve the removing and disposal of furniture, carpets, tiles and other household items. Every Trauma, Death or Crime Scene is different, and the difficulty can vary greatly. Let professionals handle the hazardous and difficult tasks for you.
What is involved in Crime Scene and Forensic Cleaning?
Crime Scene Cleaning and Forensic Cleaning is a term used to describe the arduous and highly specialised task that biohazard technicians undertake to clean after an assault, crime, homicide, suicide or any traumatic accident involving blood or body fluids occured in a property or outside.
After a death, trauma or accident, the risk for disease and illness rises exponentially if the hazard is not mitigated and remediated as a priority. As such, Crime Scene and Forensic Cleaners are tasked with the mitigation of loss and potential additional contamination caused by pathogens, bacteria, contaminants and chemicals present at the scene.
