Crime Scene & Trauma Cleaning
If you have suffered a terrible loss or trauma, please accept our sympathy and our promise to be considerate of your feelings as we do our job. Our goal is to make your surroundings clean and safe again so you can focus on getting your life back together.
When a homicide, suicide, violent attack or break-in occurs, police, fire fighters and crime scene investigators perform critical tasks at the scene. However, they don’t usually clean up anything. That task is left to you – the family or business owner – at a time when you are least able to handle it.
In cases of death, human injury or industrial accidents, improper cleanup can pose serious danger to present and future inhabitants as well as those performing the cleanup. To protect yourself, your loved ones and your employees, never try to perform such a cleanup on your own.
The importance of immediate, professional cleaning
Death and human injury normally leave behind hazardous biological materials called biohazards. Such substances require immediate, expert attention to prevent dangerous contamination.
At the scene of a death, biohazards are everywhere, often invisible to an untrained eye. A single drop of blood, for example, can spread infectious diseases such as AIDS, HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, E-coli and more.
If too much time elapses after death or injury or improper cleaning techniques are followed, biological fluids can seep into carpets, subflooring and other parts of the house, potentially contaminating the entire house for months or years to come. In addition, the scene itself can be dangerous because of air-borne pathogens, bacterial and mold spores.
Proper cleanup requires hospital-grade disinfectants to neutralize biohazards and odors, and cleaning technicians must follow strict EPA and OSHA-approved handling and disposal methods.
Even if a crime scene involves no death, cleanup crews must properly deal with remnants of fingerprint dust and chemicals such as tear gas that can produce long-lasting, negative effects on a home or an office.
At XSI Disaster Services, we have teams of technicians trained to follow the strictest safety cleaning procedures to return scenes of crime and trauma back to normal as quickly as possible.
