Bad events happen to people every day and unfortunately there are times when trauma cleanup is needed. A trauma scene may contain blood, toxins, bodily fluids, forensic residue, and other biohazardous or chemical waste. Potential biohazards should always be avoided, but if this kind of unexpected situation occurs on your property, do not attempt to clean it up yourself. Instead, contact an experienced and reputable biohazard remediation company to safely and properly remove the biohazard from your property. Cleaning up after a trauma requires a very specialized set of skills as well as certain permits and training. The following outlines the different types of trauma cleanup.
Trauma Scene Cleanup
Crime scene cleanup
Suicide, homicide, and unattended and accidental death
Airborne pathogen and blood cleanup
Infectious disease, viral, and microbial site disinfecting
- Bodily fluids and tissue cleanup
Some typical kinds of residues left at trauma scenes might include traceable evidence like (gunshot residue, paint residue, broken glass, unknown chemicals, drugs), impressionable evidence like (fingerprints, footwear, tool marks), and bodily fluids like (blood, saliva, vomit). The cleanup process involves detecting, disinfecting and removing all traces of hazardous materials. Once the scene has been completely cleaned, sanitized, and all potentially hazardous materials have been removed, a final inspection is performed.
Some common kinds of pathogens that require the cleaning and disinfection of infectious germs, viruses and bacteria include MRSA, Listeria, Hepatitis A, B & C, HIV, Norovirus, Coronavirus and Histoplasmosis. The eradication process involves an Ultra Low Volume (ULV) misting of certain affected areas, an Electro Static Spray application which ensures total coverage of surfaces in the affected area, and surface wiping of critical contact areas.
Unattended Decomposition Cleanup
This type of cleanup involves removing human remains. Decomposition presents a variety of different issues and inherent dangers with regard to blood and bodily fluids. Strong, unpleasant, and sometimes noxious odors are also common under these circumstances. Complete detection and eradication of fluids is a necessity in order to return affected areas to their previous condition.
