It isn’t uncommon in the United States for severe accidents and violent crimes to happen as they do occur every day. Despite its commonality, a lot of people won’t ever be in or witness such a scenario. However, you should still know what to do if you come across such a scene. You always start by calling 911 to alert emergency personnel. When you encounter the scene, stay away from any blood, bodily fluids, and other biohazard materials. These materials may cause disease and/or infections, so you don’t want to put yourself at risk. Licensed professionals are the only people who can safely remove and clean biohazard materials in a way that eliminates the potential for disease and infection.
At ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell, we provide trauma scene cleaning services in Pasadena, CA, to conduct safe cleanup of scenes that include biohazard materials. Our professional technicians have the proper licensing and equipment to conduct biohazard cleanup safely. Additionally, we are always sensitive and considerate of those who have lost a loved one.
Trauma scenes usually contain biohazard materials including tissues, blood, and other bodily fluids. These biohazards contain bacteria and other harmful substances, so being exposed to them can cause disease or infection. Knowing this, cleanup of biohazard materials is best left to professionals. Doing the cleaning yourself is simply too dangerous.
With our specialized cleaning products and equipment, our technicians can conduct safe cleanup of the biohazard materials. To prevent infection and disease from spreading, we also disinfect the affected area. Our technicians protect themselves from the biohazard materials and the potential health concerns they can cause with personal protective equipment (PPE). Once the biohazards have been removed from the scene, we transport them for disposal at a medical waste facility.
Within our biohazard and trauma scene cleaning services, we conduct the following steps:
- Cleaning and removal of all biohazard materials from the scene
- Cleaning and disinfecting the scene so infections don’t spread
- Transporting biohazard materials to be disposed of at a medical waste facility
- Complying with government regulations at the local, state, and federal levels
While it’s already difficult to handle the aftermath of a violent crime or severe accident, it can be even tougher to handle if you’ve also lost a loved one. Friends and family will be grieving, which is why we will be compassionate and sensitive in our work. We come to the scene in an unmarked vehicle, protecting your privacy, and we work diligently to restore your property. When the scene concerns a crime, we cooperate with law enforcement, working without disrupting the ongoing investigation.
In the event that you come across the scene of an accident or crime, do your best to stay calm. Keep your distance from the scene and call 911 right away. Then call (626) 386-8834 to get in touch with ServiceMaster by T.A. Russell for the trauma scene cleaning services we offer in Pasadena, CA.
