Our Professional Crime Scene Cleanup Techniques
Our fully trained personnel are not only qualified to handle the removal of biohazards, but they also understand the methods used by law enforcers during and after the event of a crime. For instance, sometimes techniques such as teargas can be employed to overpower the perpetrators. The tear gas canisters can leave a lot of toxic materials. Also, fingerprint dust and other materials left by law enforcers can pose considerable health risks to you and your family. It is therefore recommended to ensure all the elements are removed for safety. Our team is qualified to assess the scene, remove all the hazards and discard them properly to guarantee maximum safety.

Most homeowners and business owners are hesitant to start the cleaning process immediately. However, our team consults with the relevant bodies to be given an official go-ahead to begin the cleaning process. Starting the cleanup processes without the formal approval can interfere with the evidence and hamper investigations.
Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms present in the blood or other body fluids such as mucus. These pathogens can cause spread and cause diseases. Any human body fluid in a crime scene is considered to be a carrier of diseases and other pathogens. Fluids that are secreted in the usual way such as urine and others that are not like vitreous humour can significantly contaminate the crime scene.
Currently, there are over twenty viruses that can be transmitted through the fluids found in the human body. However, some of the most common include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV among others.
Pathogens can spread beyond the specific scene of a crime. Therefore, it is not advisable to assume other areas are safe for occupation. Even though surrounding surfaces may appear clean, pathogens can still be present. Germs that may cause severe health implications can persist in areas you might not even suspect. The longer the surfaces remain disinfected, the more chances the present pathogens risk of developing diseases. This is the reason why hospitals clean surfaces on a regular basis due to the spread of germs.
HBV virus that causes Hepatitis B diseases can survive for weeks in dried blood. Infection is likely to occur through cross-contamination when a person comes into contact with a contaminated surface. Therefore, any surface in your home or business premise can potentially hide disease-causing pathogens. You and your family risk exposure to serious health implications by merely touching a contaminated surface.
If there is a person involved in the crime, there are high chances that pathogens may be left behind. The presence of pathogens on the crime scene increases if there is death involved. The pathogens may still be present even if blood and other body fluids are not visible.
There are several measures you can take to protect you and your family from contracting diseases from the contaminated surfaces. The first step is to arrange for a temporary stay elsewhere for a period of time. Secondly, coordinate with the law enforcement on the scene to contract cleaning services personnel that are trained to handle bloodborne pathogens and other dangers involved in a crime scene.
Even though the HIV virus cannot survive for long outside the body compared to Hepatitis B, it is possible for it to survive for weeks. Research has shown that the virus can survive in dried blood at specific temperatures, especially in a dark environment. Living viruses have been recovered in corpses for more than two weeks.
