What Are Crime Scene Cleaners Trained to Do?

Oftentimes, accident and crime scenes have biohazard and blood contaminants that pose a serious health risk. For this reason, it is necessary to ensure that the affected area is kept clean and restored to a safe and clean state. Crime scene cleanup involves so much more than just cleaning body tissues and fluids that are left behind after a violent assault or homicide. As a matter of fact, there have been many terms used to describe this industry. One such term is “biohazard remediation”- a term used to show that crime scene cleanup involves cleaning a wide range of contamination issues. Discussed below are some of the many projects that fall under the job scope of crime scene cleaners.

Biohazard Cars

When a car is referred to as a biohazard, it may mean residues of blood and other body fluids have been found inside. Such residues reduce the car’s resale value since nobody wants to buy a pathogen-carrying car and put themselves at risk. Regardless of the amount of air freshener you use, the bottom line is you will need professional biohazard cleaners to help with thorough cleaning and deodorization.

Industrial Accidents

Workplace deaths and injuries can happen anytime and to anyone. Such traumatic events can damage the mental state of coworkers and additionally, most employees lack the knowhow on how to manage such complex cleanup procedures. Various residues and blood spills can spray into inventory containers, ventilation systems and machinery parts. Due to this, ensure you look for certified cleanup and restoration technicians that are compliant with OSHA regarding the cleanup of biohazard worksites.

Mold Cleanup

Any property with a water source can rapidly become infested with mold and pose a great health risk to the occupants. Mold produces irritants and allergens that can cause serious respiratory problems if left unattended. If you suspect your home or property is infested with mold, act immediately and contact certified mold remediation specialists to get your property restored thoroughly and quickly.

Unattended Death

An unattended death refers to an occurrence where a person unexpectedly passes on outside a doctor’s supervision. This could be due to homicide, an accident, suicide, or natural causes. When this happens and the body is not discovered for a long time, it starts decomposing releasing unpleasant tissue and fluids that need to be cleaned up. In this case, cleaning might require removal of drywall, subflooring, or carpet to reach leaks embedded within the structure. SERVPRO of Hoboken/Union City technicians will properly and thoroughly sanitize your property to prevent pest and mold infestations.
