Crime Scene Cleanup: Leave it to the Pros
In TV shows like “Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda”, which had an impressive 9 seasons, the blood and other substances crime scenes are toned down quite a bit to make them tolerable for viewers.
However, if your facility is unfortunately the site of a real-life crime, you’ll be left with a ghastly scene that needs to be cleaned up before you can re-open.
What could need to be cleaned up at a crime scene? The possibilities depend on the type of crime and can include:
- Residual fingerprint powder
- Toxic irritants like tear gas residue
- Fire extinguisher residue
- Blood spills
- Biohazard contaminants
- Bodily fluids
- Tissue fragments if a person was injured or there was a death
- Any drug paraphernalia
Is any of that something that you really want your usual cleaning staff to have to handle? Do you have the proper covering for them, including shoe covers, clothes covering that’s liquid permeable, goggles, and protective gloves. Standard rubber gloves won’t work due to the potential of blood-borne pathogens on the scene like Hepatitis B or C or HIV or needles that might be hidden at your crime scene.
