Traumatic events can be shocking and difficult to deal with, but they are unfortunately a part of life that cannot be avoided. After the paramedics or police have left a trauma or crime scene, there is usually still bio-hazard materials left behind that needs to be cleaned up by professionals. Blood and other bodily fluids can contain infectious diseases and are considered bio-hazardous materials by federal regulations. For this reason, trauma and crime scene cleanup should only be handled by professionals who have received proper training in decontamination and trauma cleanup.
Often, what you see on the surface is only a small portion of the actual contamination. A spot of blood that appears small on a section of carpet will sink through to the floorboards and is typically much larger underneath. A simple carpet cleaning will not remove all of the bio-hazardous material from your floor. Proper professionals will be able to assess the situation and evaluate which parts of your home need extra attention below the surface. Everything touched by any type of bodily fluid needs to be expertly cleaned, disinfected and deodorized.
One of the trickiest parts of this job is handling the materials and waste that needs to be thrown away. Because materials from trauma scene cleanup are considered bio-hazard waste, they cannot simply be put in a garbage can and left at the end of a driveway on trash day. Disposal of anything deemed as bio-hazard waste is closely monitored and must be properly handled by a licensed bio-hazard cleanup specialists.
