Serious accidents and violent crimes that cause death or major injuries are a daily occurrence in the United States, but these incidents are so few and far between that many people may never witness or experience this type of situation. However, it helps to know what to do if you encounter such a scene, especially because these scenes can be emotionally overwhelming and dangerous. You should always call 911 first and make sure you keep your distance because biohazard materials like blood and bodily fluids may be infectious. Only a licensed professional can clean up biohazard materials safely while eliminating the risk of infection or disease. ServiceMaster of Aurora provides trauma scene cleaning services in Aurora, IL to safely clean up scenes contaminated by biohazard materials. We are licensed and equipped to effectively remove biohazard materials and our technicians are sensitive to the emotions of those who have lost a loved one.
It is common for biohazard materials like blood, bodily fluids, and tissues to be found at trauma or crime scenes and exposure to these materials can lead to infection or disease because they may contain bacteria and other harmful substances.
