Crime scene clean up is a niche market within the cleaning industry. It involves cleaning up dangerous material. This could mean the biologically contaminated scene of a violent death (homicide, suicide or accidental) or the chemically contaminated scene of a meth lab. Advanced Bio Treatment’s specially trained technicians come in and restore the scene by removing any source material, and disinfecting affected areas.
You need special knowledge and the ‘know how’ to safely handle bio hazardous material and to know what to look for at the scene. For instance, if there’s a one-inch in diameter size bloodstain on the carpet, there’s a good chance that there’s a 2-foot-diameter bloodstain on the floorboards underneath it. You can’t just clean the carpet and call it a day. The thing about crime scene cleanup is that the scene has to be truly clean, not just apparently clean. In addition to the infection that can result from blood borne pathogens, any bodily fluids that remain in floors, carpets, baseboards or walls can lead to mold, bacteria and fungus, which can cause sickness months or years later. In a worst case scenario the owner of the property can be held liable.
