A: When someone dies, has an accident or falls victim to a crime, investigators will come to the scene to gather any evidence or information they need. Once investigators release the scene and leave, what’s left behind can be quite disturbing, including blood and other bodily fluids, as well as fingerprint dust and tear gas remnants. Biohazards like blood, tissue and bodily fluids, if not cleaned and disposed of properly, can pass on illness and pathogens. To prevent this, home and business owners should call professional crime scene cleaners who can remove contaminants safely and effectively.

A: In some instances, insurance companies pay for crime scene cleanup. If this is the case, you’ll have to pay the deductible stated in your insurance policy. Once you meet your deductible, your insurer pays the remaining costs. Not all policies offer this coverage, however. If yours doesn’t, you could have to cover the cost of cleanup yourself.
Fortunately, some states do offer assistance with cleanup costs. Some of these programs are quite generous, especially if you’ve been the victim of a violent crime. Specific programs vary by state, so you’ll need to talk to representatives in yours to learn how much help is available to you.

A: Crime scene cleanup is an important job, but it’s not for everyone. In order to work as a cleaner, you must be comfortable working around blood and other bodily fluids.

Crime scene cleanup requires a strong stomach but a tender heart. Crime scene cleaners work with people who have lost a loved one or experienced an equally traumatic event. It’s important to walk people through the cleanup process kindly and with compassion.
A: When crime scene investigators dust for fingerprints, they use special graphite powder. They opt for graphite because it spreads easily and sticks tenaciously to everything it touches. While this makes graphite great for finding fingerprints, it makes it very difficult to get rid of when the fingerprinting is done. Those who attempt to remove it themselves often find they’ve simply spread it around and made the problem worse. It’s always best and easiest to hire a professional cleaner to remove fingerprint powder with specific chemicals made for the job.
