Stumbling upon the aftermath of a traumatic accident or violent crime is upsetting at best and terrifying at worst. Everyone thinks it won’t happen to them, but it happens multiple times every day across the country, so it’s important to know what to do in case you find one. The main rule is to call 911 immediately. The area may be considered a crime scene, so it’s vital to leave it undisturbed. Even moving a small object can derail an investigation. Never try to clean the aftermath by yourself. Biohazard materials like blood and tissue can carry disease and ordinary household cleaners aren’t strong enough to remove stains or sanitize the area. These items can’t legally be disposed of in household trash.

Why Biohazard Materials Are So Dangerous
Trauma scenes usually contain tissue, blood, and other types of bodily fluids. These materials are considered biohazards because they can easily spread infectious diseases. Law enforcement and other first responders don’t provide cleanup services. This type of remediation can’t be handled by ordinary cleaning products and equipment because they can’t provide the necessary levels of cleaning and sanitation. These materials can’t legally be thrown away in regular household trash either, and without wearing the proper protective gear, it’s easy to spread bacteria and other hazards throughout the area and beyond. This is usually a job most people would prefer not to do themselves, even if they didn’t know the parties involved.
