Nothing but a Bloody Mess Left Behind
Blood Cleanup: This was an interesting scene to clean, to say the least. The poor body of the unfortunate victim in Florida lay dead for so long that her skull started to decontaminate, crusting her skin and hair to the floor.
I almost feel bad talking about it, but this stuff is the truth, ladies and gentlemen. We see more blood and guts these days than we do pretty women dressed up for the ball.
The blood and everything has had enough time to set which meant this job was going to require some extra time, hands, and equipment. Time to put on my suit and get scraping!
During a cleanup, you can start feeling awkward just because of the situation you are in. I mean, it was a normal Wednesday night for this victim.
Nobody knew the poor woman had passed until she didn’t show up for work and the next thing you know, here we are! It can be tough cleaning up scenes sometimes.
The Truth and Reality Behind Blood Cleanup
Let’s discuss the truth and reality behind cleaning up a crime scene such as the one above. First and foremost, blood and all that comes with, can carry serious toxins and carcinogens that should be handled in a serious matter. DO NOT just grab a soap and towel and call it clean.
Call in the professionals to fully decontaminate the area who follows the proper OSHA requirements. That’s us, by the way!

Blood cleanup involves the removal and cleaning or disposal of items that have been contaminated with body fluids, blood, or tissue matter, but does not stop there. Those trained in blood cleaning are adept at tracking down and remediating areas that have been contaminated – areas that the untrained eye would not see.
When a firearm is used, there is often as much bio-hazardous material that you cannot see as there is that is visible. For the safety of a blood cleanup technician, and of future inhabitants, it is most important that this bio-hazardous material be decontaminated as well.
