Officials are concerned with consumer exposure to blood borne pathogens and viruses will encourage consumers dealing with a suicide, homicide, or unattended death cleanup matter in their home to seek professional hazmat help. The hazmat industry deals with a number of serious and harmful areas but the division that deals with blood clean up is in general terms known as the crime scene cleanup division. There are a number of reasons to hire a crime scene clean up business to help in the removal and cleanup of the decomposed remains of a dead body as well as the blood splatter and spill cases by a suicide or homicide cleanup. Here we will discuss some of the top 3 reasons to hire a crime scene cleanup service to help and why not to do it yourself.
First you will want to hire a cleanup company due to the hazardous nature of blood. Blood is the lifeline of many types of bacteria, viruses, and other microscopic pathogens that when left out in nature can cause many hazards to the home and to the people left to do the blood cleanup if it is not done properly. By utilizing specialized training, suits, gloves, and handling devises, a crime scene cleanup expert is able to safely perform the duties of blood cleanup.
Second you will have to worry about the death cleanup being completed properly. Many do it yourselfers end up with major odor issues because they cleanup what they can see and not what they can’t. When a death occurs in a home, there may be many areas effected that go unnoticed if you do not have a keep eye for this business and the equipment like special lighting devises and blood sniffing dogs that can help determine where exposure has occurred, to make sure that the aftermath cleanup of the death is completed fully.
Third you will need to dispose of this waste. In this particular area many laws come into play. You cannot simply throw the aftermath of a death, such as the blood soaked towels, debris, and decomposed body tissue in the trash. You need to be a licensed transporter of this material and it must be transported to a incineration facility in order to be destroyed. This is in accordance with state laws and federal E.P.A. guidelines.
