Crime and Emergency Service Scene Decontamination

Crime scene cleaning services typically donít surface the mind of individuals until a tragic incident occurs. Relieve the stress of cleaning a hazardous area by reviewing four important steps delivered directly from the professionals.

1) Call the authorities

Law enforcement is here for your protection. Take advantage of this public service and dial the local authorities. Officers dispatched to the address will arrive promptly to the scene of the incident. Investigators will perform the proper procedures to determine who the perpetrator(s) are and make sure an arrest is the outcome. Do not attempt to salvage items from the home before detectives have thoroughly processed the scene because you can accidentally contaminate the evidence. There are several other items to consider before you pick up your own cleaning supplies.

2) Hazards

The crime scene can pose dangerous side effects that homeowners need to be aware of as they exit the home. Diverge the attempt to clean the scene yourself because long term exposure to certain toxins can result in contracting HIV, H1N1 and other bloodborne pathogens, along with a list of unwanted medical issues that trained professional know how to avoid through their routine protocols. Another point to consider is permits are needed to transfer and dispose of biohazardous materials, which each qualified emergency service cleanup technician will come equipped with. After the initial cleanup is complete, disinfectant and deodorizing treatments are instituted in order to restore the normalcy of the place. If parts of the home, such as the carpet, become unsalvageable, the clean up company will typically replace the area.

3) Coverage

Many insurance companies cover trauma scene decontamination. You can make a quick call to your own insurance provider to determine if coverage is plausible and to understand the extent of the type of claim you will need to file.

4) Types of clean up

You may be wondering about all the situations that a biohazard contractor should be contacted for, thus weíve provided bullet points!
  • Aftermath of violent crime(s)
  • Accidental deaths (i.e. car accidents)
  • Decomposition of the human body
  • Trauma Scenes
  • Hoarders
  • Infestation of animals
