At this time more Americans are hiring professional services to deal with hazardous or dirty jobs that either contain environmental hazards or have emotional trauma associated with an event that is both dangerous and emotional. For example a primary work of crime scene cleaners is to handle the aftermath cleanup of a tragedy or even like a homicide or suicide.
In addition to this they deal with other death related jobs such as natural death and any type of blood cleanup that comes as a byproduct of someone losing their life, whether due to a natural occurrence, medical reason, or taking of their life by force. It is a traumatic situation that along with the hazards required a personality that is well trained and suited for handling this kind of event. The blood that must have cleanup is the major reason for professional help.
Blood can contain unseen harmful pathogens that when outside of the body can reap havoc on people around the scene. It is up the crime scene cleaners to make sure that all of this is not only cleaned and picked up but must also have a sanitizing solution on it to decontaminate that surrounding area. Once this is all finished the remediation is not complete, the cleaners must then transport the blood waste to a incineration facility and destroy all remains. In dealing with the aftermath of a homicide or unattended death where a large amount of blood or body decomposition may have been resting at the property for a larger period of time, they must also dispose of parts of the home that needed to be removed.
In many cases they are removing flood boards, parts of walls, carpeting, and other flooring or ceiling materials that were effected and in which the best way to complete the cleanup is by completely removing the items. Cleaning companies can not perform these functions because traditional cleaning businesses do not have the right training or licensing, including blood and waste transport licenses that crime scene cleaners have. Due to this fact about crime scene cleanup, it is essential to the safety of everyone involved, including whoever is cleaning, that the scene be remediated by actual licensed businesses who have the training and knowledge of what to do when dealing with blood from a death.
