What many people don’t realize is that when the crime scene tape comes down, and everyone is gone, family members or friends are left to deal with the scene.

Certified Professional Crime Scene Cleanup Services
While all death and trauma can be difficult to process as a friend or family member, dealing with an unattended death might be the most difficult. Often, these types of deaths go unnoticed for a long period. Bodies start to decompose not long after death and go through various stages. It is often that unattended deaths are discovered about 10 days after the initial death.
The home will have a variety of hazardous materials present including blood, bodily fluids, and noxious odors. The biohazard remediation must be conducted by a professional due to the hazardous materials. All of the professionals at Rock Environmental wear protective equipment including full hazmat suits, boots, gloves, and goggles.
Often in these cases, not just the body needs to be removed. Usually, the carpets, flooring, and other materials within the home need to be removed and professionally cleaned and disinfected. Strong odors tend to seep into furniture and other belongings as well as other rooms making it difficult to remediate certain personal items.
Blood is considered a biohazard due to the risk of spreading infectious diseases and bacteria. When it comes to cleaning blood from a trauma or crime scene, you should not try to clean it up with your regular cleaning materials, like a mop and bucket.
It could just make matters worse and not fully clean and disinfect the area. Large areas of blood should be cleaned by a professional who has been trained in handling biohazard materials.
If you do have a room or area with a large amount of blood present, it would be best to close off the area and limit the amount of time and contact with that space. Blood cleanup isn’t restricted to just a home or business, it might also be in a vehicle.
There have been plenty of times in which our crews have been called to remove blood stains from vehicles.
Homicide & Suicide
When tragedy strikes and you are trying to process the death of a loved one by homicide or suicide, the last thing you should have to worry about is how to clean up what’s left behind. There is a flurry of law enforcement officials coming and going all the time, handling phone calls and other matters making the days go by in a blur. When the dust settles, what should you do?
Calling Rock Environmental for homicide or suicide cleanup should be one of your many phone calls. Our team members provide compassion and professionalism when working with the families of the deceased. In these situations, we work with law enforcement teams to ensure the scene has been released for cleanup to ensure there is no removal of evidence. As with other biohazard cleanups, don’t try to take care of it yourself.
It’s always horrible when somebody breaks into your home or business, but it is even worse when they take any of your belongings. When law enforcement comes, they may use a black powder to try and lift fingerprints.
This powder can end up on everything and be difficult to clean up. While it is not a biohazard, it can be a reminder of what happened in your home causing further trauma to you or your family.
Biohazard or trauma cleanup isn’t always from someone dying. Accidents around the home or other incidents such as assault may also require a biohazard cleanup companies’ professional help.
There are also times that these types of accidents or traumas will involve a vehicle (taking someone to the hospital) and these need to be cleaned and disinfected as well.
Accidents that happen on the job are often not considered a crime scene, but still should be treated as one. Many businesses have cleaning companies come in for regular cleaning, but many are not trained in biohazard removal.
Accidents like these often include heavy machinery and equipment like cranes and forklifts. Having a professional biohazard company come in to clean up after the accident can help you restore the area and equipment promptly so things can get back to business.
