Defining Forensic Cleaning
Forensic cleaning is the removal, cleaning and disinfection of surfaces containing blood and other bodily fluids. Forensic cleaners are brought in to ensure that place or setting is entirely safe and habitable following traumatic incident (a crime scene, suicide, unattended death), or indeed any other violent incident that produces bodily fluids and other biohazardous elements.
Strict COOSH guidelines need to be followed and you are advised to contact specialist forensic cleaning company rather than attempting to clean the containment area yourself. To disinfect and neutralise pathogens spread by bodily fluids, such as viruses and infectious diseases like hepatitis and HIV, forensic scene cleaners employ PPE and specialised chemicals. Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that crime scene cleaners only work on crime scenes once the investigation is finished. A crime scene should only be reported to the police directly.
Forensic Scene Cleaning Services
For a rapid, efficient, and comprehensive disinfection after a traumatic incident, our package includes labour from a specialist NACSC (National Association of Crime Scene Cleaners) trained cleaning technician. We offer the following services.
With many years of experience in cleaning, biohazard cleanups, and bioremediation we are the perfect business to partner with for ongoing work or for once of work. As members of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), we are experts in responding to and managing bio-risk situations. The staff at CICS are trained not only in bio-redemption but also in disease control and disinfection. We work carefully, for instance, in disinfecting areas that are a risk of COVID 19. That same careful methodology of ATP and swab testing is applied to our crime, police, emergency services, and trauma cleaning services.
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 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 that specialises in these areas. When blood or 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 use swabs and ATP testing to ensure that the affected area is clean and hygienic.
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.
Here are some characteristics of CICS LTD UK’s crime scene cleanup service.
We shall always show respect for victims and empathy for impacted employees and members of the public.
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.
