Crime scene cleaning refers to the cleaning and sanitizing of homes, businesses, and vehicles after homicides, suicides, industrial accidents, and other traumas while demonstrating compassion toward those receiving services. It is undertaken with an emphasis placed on helping families and colleagues recover by relieving them of the burden of clean-up and return to them a home or workplace that is completely clean and sanitized.
The affected areas are cleaned using special cleaning agents to remediate situations that typical cleaning services cannot. Some of these situations include:
Tear gas clean-up. Tear gas is sometimes used by law enforcement at the scene of a crime and can be difficult to clean afterwards. Until all of the chemicals are remediated, a building will remain unsafe and should not be inhabited.
Unattended death clean-up. One of the most challenging situations that crime scene cleaners face is an unattended death. Many people underestimate the detrimental effects that an unattended death can have on the home and do not realize that it can impact both the safety and well-being of future occupants if not completely restored.
Suicide and accident clean-up. Cleaning up blood and other biological matter should be handled with extreme caution. A crime scene clean-up crew – unlike a general cleaning crew – possesses the tools and knowledge to remediate a scene thoroughly and safely.
