Trauma Scene Cleanup

in Scene

In the biohazard recovery business known by the business name crime scene cleanup, the 24 hour crime scene cleaners are the people involved in dealing with any hazards dealing with the cleanup of blood, pathogenic conditions, MRSA, Staph, and death.  The overall business encompasses learning how to make sure as a cleaner you are protected from any conditions that can be passed while cleaning and in addition you will have to remediate the scene from all the waste and issues that need sanitized to prevent exposure to anyone else who might enter the confines of the house, apartment, or office building.

This hazardous business has many problems in it, but one of the worse problems for consumers is the hiring of crime scene cleaners who are not properly equipped, licensed or bonded.  To prevent having this problem, when hiring a service to cleanup blood after a death you will want to work with the people at 24hr.  They have the experience, know how, and understanding of a business that is foreign to most people in need of such service, their representatives and cleaners will guide you through the questions you have and provide detailed information to make sure you can make an informed decision and understand what is involved as crime scene cleaners, what their duty is and what their objective is when coming into your home or the scene of a death.

Once the body is removed a cleaner should be present to begin remediation.  Most people who have never encountered a homicide, murder or suicide cleanup, or any other kind of blood cleanup due to death do not realize that the coroner or medical examiner is only licensed and responsible for removing the actual body, the remains such as body tissue, blood, out line, finger print dust and other hazards for example when apprehending a murderer the police may use tear gas, and when this is used this too requires remediation or tear gas cleanup.  Remediation involves many aspects of decontamination including but not limited to removal of mattresses, bodily fluids, body tissue, floor boards, and other material that was exposed to blood.

Training for this type of cleanup and the general cleanup of blood,  is done by a number of resources however their is no training for blood cleanup that can replace experience.  When dealing with several hundred jobs a year and cleaning crew can become more aware of better ways to cleanup and have more ability to clean a scene faster, which saves on overall costs and manpower necessary to complete the task at hand.
