In the event of a death or suicide, the authorities will remove the body of the victim, but the remediation of the physical scene itself is actually left up to family members or property owners. So do you know what to do if you ever find yourself in this unfortunate situation?
Crime scene clean up is quite different from any other restoration job. It requires the right mental capacity to emotionally detach one’s self from the situation and a pretty strong stomach. Trauma scenes, accidental deaths, homicides, suicides, and the like can be quite disturbing.
In addition to that, crime scene clean up also requires certain skills and restoration knowledge similar to other remediation efforts. These skills include:
- A working knowledge of sterilization and disinfecting techniques
- Familiarity with state and local government guidelines and regulations
- Restoration of carpets, walls, and furniture
- Clean up of biological hazards
While the federal government does not regulate trauma scene clean up on a national level, state and local governments often have their own set of guidelines and requirements for these type of situations involving bodily fluids, and the storage, transportation and disposal of hazardous materials.
Because of all of this, we recommend using a licensed and trained professional, like ServiceMaster of Baltimore, for all of your crime scene clean up needs.
