Crime & Trauma Scene Clean Up
No one can ever anticipate a traumatic event occurring in their home or business. Such events that involve blood or other biohazards pose major safety risks, and improper cleanup of these hazards may result in serious consequences, including possible disease outbreak. Rapid response to such events can also limit damage to personal contents and the structure of your home or business. Biohazard remediation refers to the removal, cleaning, and disinfection of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially harmful pathogens in affected areas after a death, accident, or communicable disease outbreak. Because of the high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens, biohazard remediation is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing. Improper cleanup and even the slightest exposure can result in the transfer of blood-borne pathogens like HIV, Hepatitis B or C, MRSA and more. Bloodborne pathogens are any type of virus, disease, or bacteria that can be found in the bodily fluid. We’ve outlined a few basic do’s and don’ts for you until we arrive on the scene.
Handling a crime scene at your property presents a lot of difficult situations, but clean up shouldn’t be one of them. Here’s a list of what to do if you ever find yourself in this terrible situation.
Step 1: Call the Authorities – Calling 911 should always be the first step in dealing with any crime scene.
Step 2: Shut off Access to the Scene – Be sure that you, your tenants or customers don’t enter or alter a crime scene.
Step 3: Cooperate with the Police Investigation – Once help arrives, cooperating with the proper authorities is a must. While the length of this stage may vary depending on the investigation, you may be forced to shut close your facility or relocate tenants.
Step 4: Call Our team of highly trained professionals that will help you quickly, safely and discreetly get you back to normal while working with your insurance company.
An unattended death is when the body of a deceased individual is found days, weeks or even longer after they’ve expired. The processes of decomposition, which includes insidious bacterial growth, is as unpleasant to clean as it is to witness. Such bacteria can permeate carpeting, wood flooring, clothing, furniture, essentially the entire home in only a few days.
The cleanup of an unattended death is very difficult and could pose many challenges. As the body goes through the various stages of decomposition, bodily fluids and other potentially infectious materials are released which can cause the homeowners and the remediation technicians serious illnesses. Attempting to clean up these type of losses isn’t suggested, nor is allowing an inexperienced company who isn’t properly trained and certified either.
Each case of unattended death is quite different than the other, but one thing is for sure; only a certified and insured company should handle these types of cleanups. There are various dangers allowing anyone to clean up an unattended death and this type of mitigation should not be taken likely. If a family member or friend unexpectedly dies, it is a very trying time, but be sure to remember that unattended death cleanup should always be handled by a trusted company who can arrive promptly and assure the property is safe of any future hazards.
