Many people don’t realize that if their business or home has been the scene of a crime or trauma, that they’re responsible for the cleanup. This is not something that’s included in the duties of law enforcement. The home or business owners are left alone to deal with what happened, as well as cleaning it up. Thankfully, there are professional restoration and cleanup companies that can help with this. That’s why ServiceMaster of Baltimore offers specialized services to help customers navigate a trauma cleanup.
Why Trauma Cleanup is Important
No one thinks their home or business would ever be the scene of a crime or trauma, but unfortunately these events do occur. Aside from the negative effects on your mental wellbeing, trauma scenes can become dangerous, requiring a trained professional to clean them. Many deadly viruses and bacteria can become present in an environment that’s been affected by blood, bodily fluids, and biohazards. A professional service will help you navigate the cleanup by properly sanitizing the area and disposing of items that were contaminated.
Some examples of traumas that require professional cleaning include:
- Crime scenes
- Homicides, natural deaths, and suicides
- Hoarding and uninhabitable residences
- Trauma accidents
- Industrial accidents
