Dealing with the assault or death scene of a loved one or working as a manager of a property which had become a crime scene is never easy. If the shock, anger, trauma, and grief were not enough, there is a large chance that you were left behind to deal with the process of wiping up blood spill and/or tissues from the site. But did you know that you there’s no need for you to do this task on your own?

WHEN THE FIRST RESPONDERS LEAVE: WHAT HAPPENS DURING A CRIME SCENE CLEANUP?
When the first responders (law enforcement officer, coroner, etc.) leave, it is the signal that crime scene cleanup specialists need to get to work. Our crime scene cleaners will assess the situation, and bring out the gears and tools necessary for the cleanup. Personal protection equipment is essential for every job. This includes a single-use protective suit, a respirator, gloves, and protective boots. Although it’s not your common cleaning procedure, regular cleaning tools, such as rags, mops, sponges, brush, and buckets, will come in handy. Durable plastic bags and containers will be brought in for proper waste disposal. Depending on the case, specialized equipment, such industrial-strength disinfectants, specialized deodorizers, shovels, enzyme solvents, and more will be used to remove whatever may be spilled on the carpet floor.
Aftercare crime scene cleaners do more than clean—they deep clean. Depending on the amount of tissue or blood left behind after the deceased is taken to the morgue or the medical examiner’s laboratory, the cleaning process can take an hour or could stretch for many days. During the cleanup, all traces of blood and other biological matter will be wiped or scrubbed away from all hard surfaces. Any bloodied portion of a carpeted floor will be removed. In cases of massive blood spatter, the entire carpet will need to be removed. Mattresses, pillows, curtains, sheets, and upholstery soaked with blood and other bodily fluids will be properly bagged and disposed of. Any solid debris, such as fragments of bones or teeth, will be removed from nooks or crannies of the property. These fragments will then be bagged and given to the medical examiner if necessary. The area will be disinfected and deodorized as necessary.
