What is Crime Scene Cleaning?

Crime scene cleaning, also known as forensic cleanup, or trauma cleaning, is the removal, cleaning and disinfection of surfaces containing blood and other bodily fluids from areas surrounding the deceased. Importantly, crime scene cleaning is not the removal of dead bodies, and cleaning companies play no role in this. It is also crucial for individuals immediately involved in a crime scene or trauma incident not to touch the afflicted region. Crime scene cleaners utilise PPE and specific chemicals to disinfect and neutralise pathogens transmitted by body fluids, such as viruses and infectious diseases like hepatitis and HIV. It is also essential to remember that crime scene cleaners only operate on crime scenes once the investigation has concluded. Anyone reporting a crime scene should contact the police directly.

Bodily Fluid Spill and Blood Cleanup

Blood and body fluids pose serious health hazards, thus it is advisable to avoid contact with the afflicted region. Professionals who clean up blood and other body fluids at crime scenes do so while wearing protective gear. Contrary to common opinion, crime scene cleaners do not remove corpses or put up forensic tents, caution tape, or other warning materials; the police are responsible for these tasks. As one of the leading crime scene cleaning firms in the United Kingdom, CICS works closely with law enforcement to clean jail cells, police cars, and emergency vehicles such as ambulances. With many years of expertise in trauma cleaning, cleanup after death, cleaning up after violent crimes, biohazardous material cleanup, and sharps removal, we are uniquely qualified to help you with decontaminating, disinfecting, and restoring crime and trauma-affected areas.

Trauma Cleaning Services

Trauma scene cleanup is oftentimes a sensitive and personal circumstance where the remediation of a body can occur in a home, public area, or workplace. Trauma scene cleanups, like crime scene cleans, involve bodily fluids, blood, tissue, and other biological contaminants so it’s important not to touch the affected area without wearing the correct PPE. We highly advise the use of a professional crime scene or trauma scene cleaning company who specialises in these areas. When blood other bodily fluids make contact with surfaces they seep deep into the surfaces. At CICS we remove this trace biological material and residue from beyond the surface of where the incident took place. We using swabs and ATP testing to ensure that the affected area is clean and hygienic.

Who Is Responsible For Cleaning Crime Scenes?

Once a crime scene has been processed for evidence and released by police or the coroner’s office, it is the responsibility of the property owner or management to ensure that it is thoroughly cleaned.

This job must be performed in accordance with the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act and the 2002 Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations.

There is a legal obligation for property owners and facility managers to ensure the health and safety of workers and anyone who have access to the property. This is the reason why they should hire professionals to clean up the crime scene.

As part of a health and safety strategy, all incidents involving biohazards should be documented. The plan should assess the risk of infection from exposure to bodily fluids and include the process for decontaminating the space and eliminating hazardous material.

In addition, it is essential to do a risk assessment to determine how probable it is that your property may need crime or trauma scene cleanup, and then to respond accordingly.

When Does Crime Scene Cleaning Commence?

 

Typically, crime scene cleanup occurs after forensic investigators have concluded their examination. Handling hazardous biohazards, such as body fluids or blood, is one of the most critical duties of crime scene cleaners. To do so properly, all health and safety rules must be adhered to in order to safeguard the general public from concealed threats.

Once the deceased has been removed from a crime scene, bioremediation professionals will enter the property and create barriers to avoid cross-contamination. Next, they will eliminate any biohazards by cleaning the area of dirt, blood, and other fluids. After disinfecting the area, they employ a deodorizer to ensure that no unpleasant odours remain.

What Do Crime Scene Cleaners Do?

 

After an incident, crime scene cleaners, also known as forensic cleaners or bioremediation professionals, are responsible for sanitising and decontaminating the site.  The cleaning procedure should begin as soon as feasible to reduce the danger of cross-contamination, maintain company operations, and reduce the emotional pain of family members. However, crime scene cleanup cannot commence until police and detectives have concluded their inspection of the area. Before the cleaning procedure may begin, a member of the police force must submit confirmation in writing.
