When you think of SERVPRO, you probably think of Water, Fire and Mold. There is so much more that SERVPRO can do!

Did you know that SERVPRO also handles biohazard situations?

Crime scene cleanup being one of them. Here are some crime scene cleanup facts!

Crime scene cleanup is a term applied to forensic cleanup of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious materials.

CTS decon is a market within the cleaning industry, and it involves cleaning up dangerous material.

It is also referred to as biohazard remediation, and forensic cleanup, because crime scenes are only a portion of the situations in which biohazard cleaning is needed.

Incidents which may require this type of cleanup include accidents, suicide, homicides, and decomposition after unattended death.

This could mean the biologically contaminated scene of a violent death (homicide, suicide or accidental), the chemically contaminated scene of a methamphetamine lab, or the residues left from a crime scene.

Crime-scene cleaners come in and restore the scene to its pre-incident state, also known as remediation.

Some of the cleaning services include:

  • Fingerprint powder and evidence-gathering chemicals
  • Tear gas and pepper spray residues
  • Fire extinguisher residue
  • Blood, bodily fluids, and tissue remnants

After the police have completed processing a crime or accident scene, the cleaning and restoring can begin.

SERVPRO of Lebanon/Hanover/Littleton will respond immediately with a crew that follows OSHA and EPA protocols and is specially trained and equipped to safely clean crime scenes.

If you find yourself in need of this service and need some help with the cleanup, call 603-298-6942.
