The generic terms for “crime scene cleanup” include trauma cleaning, crime and trauma scene decontamination (” CTS Decon”), biohazard remediation, biohazard removal, blood cleanup and crime scene cleanup.
Crime scene cleanup includes blood spills following an invasion, murder or suicide. There are various sub-segments, named primarily after additional collateral, contingency, or preconditions, regarding the presence of non-blood borne organics, toxic irritants (tear gas, crystal velvet powders etc.) or disease vectors.
The crime scene cleaners’ work starts when the coroner’s office or other official, government body releases the “scene” to the owner or other responsible parties. Only when the scrutiny has completely terminated on the soiled scene may the cleaning companies begin their task.
Standard operating procedures for the crime scene cleanup field often include military-like methods for the decontamination of internal and external environments. Universal precautions recognized worldwide are the cautionary rule-of-thumb for this field of professional cleaning.
Cleaning methods for removing and sanitizing biohazards vary from practitioner to practitioner.

We are aware of how challenging things are at a time like this, and we’ll communicate with you ever step of the way.
Aside from blood and bodily fluid clean up, our experts have the proper training to completely clean and remediate a scene after police or crime scene investigators have left tear gas, fingerprint powder, or luminol spray (to detect the presence of blood). These chemicals can leave toxic remains that may stain or sicken future occupants.
we know it can be extremely tormenting and overwhelming to take care of the trauma of losing a family member, coworker or friend to suicide. Our professionals are compassionate people who want you to understand that you’re not alone.

When our team turns up, we will evaluate the problem and provide a written plan. In many cases, homeowners insurance will cover the cost of our services even in a suicide situation. You may get approved for other financial assistance as well. We will find time to discuss everything that needs to be done and how long the process will take. Once you accept the proposal, we immediately begin the suicide clean-up process.
Our experts in blood spill clean up resulting from mass trauma, suicide, workplace accidents or accidental death. Before attempting to clean up blood yourself, realize that the job may be dangerous and legally risky, due to the hazards of blood-borne pathogens.
Blood is not easily cleared away from most structural surfaces– if you’ve ever attempted to get it out of clothes, you can verify its staining and enduring power.
What you may not know is that blood and other bodily fluids are looked at to be biohazards. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), all direct exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials places individuals at risk for infections from pathogens such as HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, MRSA, or the measles virus.
We provide effective and compassionate cleanup services following a homicide on your property, car or business. We are often the second call to the scene, after law enforcement or first responders.
After the initial impact wears off, most survivor or property owners don’t know where to turn. It’s not the responsibility of law enforcement or the city to cleanup after a murder or other crime. Most of the times, it’s encouraged to hire a specialist team to help restore the property to its pre-tragedy state. Our can help, and we have financial assistance programs to make it feasible so you don’t have to clean it yourself.
When a homicide occurs, the area should be cleaned and decontaminated professionally. Any blood or bodily fluids may contain blood-borne pathogens that can continue to spread odors and disease. For their own safety, our homicide cleanup teams follow OSHA regulations and wear full safety gear, including facemask and respirator. They are qualified and experienced in using our proprietary cleaning, disinfection and deodorizing chemicals, according to a strict protocol that prevents cross-contamination.
Sometimes a cleanup job goes more than just surface deep. In those cases, even when all obvious traces of blood and waste have been removed, a place still must undergo bioremediation to remove any minute pathogens that could subject citizens to dangerous infections.
Only companies that concentrate on biohazard clean up and waste disposal genuinely understand the science behind the process, along with the equipment, processes and criteria required for compliance with regulations.
Our technicians will remove floor coverings, drywall and other surfaces to clear out and disinfect all traces of blood and bodily fluids that may have soaked under or behind them. All porous materials, such as carpet and cloth, should be removed because they can not be disinfected. The removed products plus the used cleaning cloths must all be handled as biohazard waste, logged and transported legally and safely to an approved disposal center.
Biohazards at a clean-up site may involve blood-borne pathogens, such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, H1N1 (bird flu) and other pandemic diseases. These pathogens may live for as long as 16 days outside the human body, depending on the environment.

Putrefaction poses particular risk to health and property because of bacterial growth and fluids which may move into baseboards and secondary rooms. Insect activity and high temperatures will exacerbate the damage, which can affect entire homes and all porous personal property.
As with all death cleaning jobs, our trauma clean up team will put on personal protective gear and respirators, so as to safely clean up and remove any biohazard materials. This is not a “mop and bucket ” job, and strict removal of all blood and bodily fluids is why a professional death cleanup service is so important. Blood-borne pathogens may be present, and these must be entirely cleaned and disinfected to prevent odors or contamination, making the home livable again. Unless all biological material is removed, the risk of odor and staining is a potential outcome.
We are a biohazard clean up company you can trust to disinfect your home, business or automobile following a blood spill, homicide, unattended death, or hoarding situation.
A biohazard is any biological substance that leads to a threat to human health. Biohazards include human or animal blood, waste or bodily fluids; human or animal remains; and medical waste, like used bandages or needles (sharps). Biohazards can contain pathogens, such as HIV, hepatitis C, MRSA, and the H1N1 flu virus, which can spread toxic diseases.
Though biohazards may be invisible to the naked eye, they may be inhaled, eaten or absorbed through cuts in the skin. Because of this, biohazard clean up should not be attempted by anyone without personal protective gear, a full facemask respirator, and proper training in their use.
The process of bio-recovery and disinfection takes place in two steps. First, the area must be cleaned of all visible blood and biological material. Sometimes biohazards may have trickled into porous furniture or under floorboards, so these must be cut up and removed. Once the area has been completely cleaned, any non-porous surface areas within the area must be disinfected, in order to remove any remaining microscopic pathogens and eliminate odors.
professional removal of tear gas, sometimes called OC spray, which may have been used in a home or business by police to suppress violent individuals. We can also clean pepper spray and similar substances.
The term “tear gas” can actually refer to several different chemical compounds, every one of which irritate mucous membranes and cause tearing, coughing, sneezing, pain, rashes and even temporary blindness. Long-term exposure can continue to cause symptoms, which are especially damaging to persons with COPD or other respiratory problems. For this reason, no one should enter a structure containing tear gas until our highly trained and experienced Our technicians safely restore the facility.
It’s difficult to clean. The tear gas particles themselves are like fine talc, and it gets all over! To remove tear gas, we carefully wash all affected surfaces, using plastic sheeting and duct tape to seal off cleaned areas and prevent cross contamination as we work. It may take several passes to remove it all, especially if there are craggy or porous surfaces (e.g. exposed brick walls, paneling).
Our staff uses personal protective gear and skilled restoration equipment and supplies to make sure the highest quality of service while always sticking to OSHA, EPA and State Health Department criteria and procedures.
we work directly with police, medical examiners, and other agencies to return your home or business to a safe, sanitary condition after a homicide, suicide, assault, or other crime. Crime scene decontamination involves removing blood, bodily fluids and other biological materials, as well as and any additional chemicals used by law enforcement.
While working a crime scene, sleuths may use fingerprint dust, which sticks to furniture and carpets. They may also spray Luminol or Fluorescein to detect latent blood evidence. To avoid possible liability from the use of these toxic chemicals, agencies may have to contract with a forensic clean up company such as Our.
Crime scene decontamination sometimes includes removal of tear gas and pepper spray, which may be used by law enforcement to alleviate a tense situation at a crime scene. If improperly cleaned, residual traces of these chemicals can cause rashes and or even respiratory ailments– even after a scene has been remediated.
