What Does Trauma Scene Cleanup Entail?
Trauma scene cleanup refers to the safe, professional, and certified cleanup, sanitization, and removal of hazardous materials from a crime scene, suicide scene, unattended death, or another type of traumatic event. The exact process depends on various factors, including the type and scope of the traumatic event.
That being said, our Dallas trauma scene cleanup team follows set protocols and procedures for most trauma scene cleanup services. These include:
- Safe and thorough decontamination of the affected area
- Discreet removal of bloodborne pathogens and biohazards
- Proper disposal of biohazards and bloodborne pathogens
- Site disinfection, decontamination, and sanitization
- Secure handling and return (when possible) of personal property and possessions
- Odor removal, including removal of potentially hazardous materials, bacteria, and gases
- Restoration of the affected area to its pre-incident state
In addition to immense emotional and psychological challenges, trauma scenes present numerous physical hazards, including those that could threaten your health and safety.
