Why We Do Crime Scene Cleanup in Florida
When a family has a relative die due to a homicide along with the loss of life they face the need to clean the home from the crime scene debris. The aftermath of a homicide leaves a family with blood and human debris which needs to be cleaned. This blood and bodily fluids is considered a biohazard making it that much more difficult to find proper cleaning. To answer this problem we formed our crime scene cleanup division. By calling us our customers can access our vast experience in cleaning homes after a death. We have licensed trauma cleanup technicians who know how to provide fast and efficient crime scene cleanup services at homes located in Florida. By contacting one of our offices in Florida we can provide same-day scheduling.
What Happens in a Crime Scene Cleanup
We take a number of steps to safely clean and restore a home after a homicide or a crime scene. Most notable is to attempt to clean and remove any of the biohazards and restore the home to a safe and sanitary condition. Each crime scene we clean has its own set of circumstances and difficulties to overcome. Below is an outline of some of the steps commonly taken to clean a home after a death. However, to find out what we will do at your home it is important that we first schedule your property for an onsite evaluation. By doing this one of our trauma cleanup technicians (crime scene cleaners) can take a closer look at what damage has been done to the home. We will then develop a plan for your property that will outline what areas are affected and what would be the best way to get the house back to you in a sanitary condition.
Professional trauma cleanup technicians at FloridaCleanIt are skilled and trained individuals who specialize in cleaning and sanitizing crime scenes, accidents, and other traumatic events. Our work goes beyond regular cleaning as they deal with biohazardous materials, blood, bodily fluids, and potentially infectious materials. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of how we may clean and sanitize a crime scene:
- Assessment and Planning: Before any cleanup begins, the technicians assess the scene to understand the extent of the contamination and plan their approach. We will identify areas that require the most attention and determine the proper cleaning agents and equipment to use. This is focused on ensuring that we attempt to account for all blood splatter and bodily fluids at the property.
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Technicians don full personal protective equipment to ensure their safety during the cleanup process. This typically includes gloves, masks, goggles, full-body suits, and respirators to prevent exposure to hazardous materials. At FloridaCleanIT our technicians take safety as a priority. We do not know what we will encounter when cleaning a crime scene and it is paramount to proper decontamination to make sure our technicians are not put in harm’s way.
- Containment: Our trauma cleaners will set up a containment area to isolate the affected zone from the rest of the space. This prevents cross-contamination and ensures that potentially harmful materials do not spread to unaffected areas When cleaning starts it is important that no biohazards or blood will spread to unaffected areas, so this is a vital step for any crime scene cleanup we work on in Florida.
- Removal of Biohazardous Materials: Our hazmat cleanup technicians carefully remove any biohazardous materials, including blood, bodily fluids, and tissue, using specialized tools and equipment. These materials are placed in designated biohazard containers for proper disposal. In many cases, it will involve the removal of affected furniture, flooring, and other surfaces that can not be cleaned and thus need to be removed to eliminate any health hazards.
- Cleaning and Disinfection: The technicians use hospital-grade cleaning agents and disinfectants to clean all surfaces that have been contaminated thoroughly. They scrub, wipe, and sanitize surfaces such as walls, floors, furniture, and other affected items. The goal is not only to remove visible traces but also to eliminate potential pathogens. However, if the surfaces are not adequately sealed or permeable they may need to be removed. Please ask our customer service about what can and can’t be done for any particular cleaning we do.
- Deodorization: Unpleasant odors often linger after traumatic events. The FloridaCleanIt technicians may use specialized deodorizing agents to neutralize these odors and restore a more pleasant environment. The longer the scene is left before cleaning the more the odors can begin affecting other rooms, so it is important to get our crime scene cleaners to do this as soon as possible.
- Verification: After the cleanup is complete, technicians may use testing kits to verify that the area is free from biohazards and pathogens. This step ensures that the space meets safety and health standards.
- Biohazard Disposal: Hazardous materials are collected in special containers that adhere to strict regulations for disposal. These containers are transported to authorized facilities for proper treatment and disposal. Commonly they are sent to the nearest incineration facility or biohazard waste disposal center in Florida.
- Documentation: Thorough documentation of the entire cleaning process is maintained. This includes photographs, reports, and other records that may be needed for legal or insurance purposes. Typically insurance claims are filed before any cleaning begins. When you call we can help submit any insurance claims or contact the insurance adjuster to find out what coverage is available for the crime scene cleanup.
