Crime scenes that involve injury or death can leave a host of health hazards behind. Cleaning these scenes requires nothing short of the utmost professionalism and knowledge to deal with biohazard cleanup and the aftermath. Bloodstains and bodily fluids transmit serious diseases if not addressed quickly and with the most up-to-date methods. That’s why having trained professionals like ServiceMaster DSI is so important.
This isn’t the time for anyone to try and be a hero or attempt cost cutting techniques for cleanup. Besides the obvious effects on people when witness to the aftermath of violent crime, their health can be seriously compromised. Because blood and other fluids can remain active threats for significant periods of the time, there’s not a time when it’s “safe enough” for untrained professionals.
The proper handling of these fluids is essential to the health of any professionals that are on the job and for the future inhabitants of the building. Our professional biohazard cleanup technicians have both the experience and the resources to not only clean but safely remove and dispose of any biohazards present.
Examples of biohazardous waste that can be found at crime scenes include:
- Human blood and blood products. This includes items contaminated with blood that will release blood in a liquid or semi-liquid form.
- Human body fluids. Examples of these can include, but are not limited to, vaginal secretions, amniotic fluid, semen, saliva, and pleural fluid.
There is no one federal agency that clearly defines or regulates biohazardous waste. At ServiceMaster DSI in Indianapolis, however, in order to prevent further infection resulting from the crime scene, we handle all biological materials as if they contain an infectious disease. There’s no such thing as being “too careful” when it comes to biohazard clean up.
