Crime-Scene Cleanup Procedures

In the event of a violent crime or death, blood and other bodily fluids may be present. Such jobs require special handling for safe disposal of contaminated materials. Federal regulations deem all bodily fluids as biohazards and potential sources of infection, which is why crime scene cleanup is most often performed by professionals who possess the necessary training and permits.

Professional crime scene cleanup crews often provide services for cleaning more than just fatal crime scenes, including hoarding situations, dead animal/carrion removal, or fentanyl and methamphetamine lab cleanup. Incidents of vandalism may require special cleaning precautions as well.

From cleansing an area of tear gas to cleaning fire extinguisher residue, professionals who handle this sort of work are not your everyday cleaners. Get tips on how to deal with these tough jobs here:
