Crime scenes present a unique combination of problems for detectives, medical examiners and coroners, but also for those tasked with cleaning the aftermath. Once removed, the body leaves behind both visual and microscopic traces that can prove harmful to those who may come into contact with them. Although the appearance of blood, bodily fluids and tissue warrants a thorough cleaning effort, it requires much more than simply wiping it up.
Crime Scene Cleanup involves a detailed procedure to detect, disinfect and completely remove all traces of hazardous materials, to include but not limited to; blood, bodily fluids, tissue & bone matter, Contaminated clothing and household goods, hypodermic needles, razor blades and other items that may pose a risk of injury. Although a visual inspection of a crime scene may reveal a great deal of blood and bodily fluids about the area, an equal amount will be found by our technicians in areas that cannot be seen or easily accessed. It is vital that all traces of these elements be removed from a scene, whether a crime has been committed or not.
