Crime Scene Cleanup Services

How We Do Crime Scene Cleanup in Washington 

Crime scene cleanup services our trauma cleanup technicians provide are professional services provided to clean and restore a site where a crime, accident, or traumatic event has occurred. These services are typically offered by specialized trauma cleanup companies like Washington Cleanit that have trained and experienced trauma cleanup technicians. The main objective of crime scene cleanup is to safely and thoroughly remove biohazardous materials, such as blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious substances, from the scene. Additionally, crime scene cleanup may involve decontaminating and sanitizing the affected area to eliminate any potential health risks and restore the environment to its original state.

Crime scene cleanup technicians play a crucial role in the process. Our employers, contractors, subcontractors, and partners have specialized training to handle potentially hazardous materials and possess the necessary knowledge of safety protocols, disposal regulations, and cleaning techniques. The process of completing a crime scene cleanup involves several key steps:

  • Assessment: The trauma cleanup technicians assess the scene to determine the extent of the damage and identify all biohazardous materials that need to be addressed. They develop a comprehensive plan for the cleanup process  This evaluation process is vital to be able to ensure that all biohazards are properly identified.  It is where experience counts the most, as many cleaning companies may not have the comprehensive approach and equipment we use to identify any blood, blood splatter, or human debris and remains. 
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Before entering the scene, technicians don appropriate PPE, including gloves, masks, goggles, and protective suits, to minimize their exposure to potentially harmful substances.  By wearing this equipment our technicians are able to stay safe while cleaning extreme situations as well as protect the air they are breathing in. 
  • Containment: The technicians establish containment barriers using plastic sheeting or other suitable materials to isolate the affected area and prevent cross-contamination.  If this is not done properly you can accidentally contaminate neighboring rooms as biohazards are being removed from the primary affected area.
  • Removal of Biohazardous Materials: Using specialized equipment and cleaning agents, the technicians carefully remove all traces of blood, bodily fluids, and other biohazardous materials from the scene. This process includes the proper collection, packaging, and disposal of these materials in accordance with local Washington State regulations.
  • Cleaning and Sanitizing: Once the biohazardous materials are removed, the technicians thoroughly clean and disinfect the entire area. They use industrial-strength cleaners and techniques to eliminate bacteria, viruses, and odors, ensuring a safe and sanitary environment.  While sanitizing any area it is important that we focus on all surfaces affected as well as subflooring, areas between tiles, door nobs, and other areas that may or may not have been affected by the homicide or death. 
  • Restoration: Depending on the severity of the damage, technicians may need to restore the affected area by repairing or replacing any damaged structures, surfaces, or materials. This step aims to return the site to its pre-incident condition.
  • Documentation and Certification: After completing the crime scene cleanup, technicians provide detailed documentation of the work performed, including photographs, descriptions, and any required certifications or permits. This documentation is essential for insurance purposes or legal proceedings.  You can count on our staff to help you with any questions or concerns that may arise before, during, and after hiring us for any crime scene clean up in your community in Washington. 

Crime scene cleanup requires meticulous attention to detail, adherence to strict safety protocols, and empathy for the emotional impact of the incident. Trauma cleanup technicians provide an invaluable service by ensuring that affected areas are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and restored, allowing for the healing and recovery of those involved.

Can You Hire A Crime Scene Cleanup Company for Other Things?

While crime scene cleanup companies primarily specialize in handling the aftermath of crimes, accidents, or traumatic events, they often extend their services to assist customers with various non-crime-related cleaning needs. Here are some examples of non-crime-related cleaning services that a crime scene cleanup company may offer:

  • Biohazard Cleanup: Crime scene cleanup companies are well-equipped and trained to handle biohazardous materials. They can provide biohazard cleanup services for situations such as unattended deaths, suicides, or accidents involving blood or bodily fluids. These services may be required in residential or commercial settings.
  • Hoarding Cleanup: Crime scene cleanup companies can assist individuals dealing with hoarding disorders or excessive clutter. Hoarding cleanup involves organizing, removing, and disposing of accumulated belongings, while also addressing any potential biohazardous materials or structural issues that may have arisen.
  • Trauma Scene Cleanup: Beyond crime scenes, trauma cleanup technicians can help with cleaning and sanitizing spaces affected by traumatic incidents, such as accidents, industrial accidents, or natural disasters. They can address biohazardous materials, structural damage, and odor removal, restoring the affected area to a safe and habitable condition.
  • Unattended Death Cleanup: In cases where an unattended death cleanup occurred in residential or commercial settings, crime scene cleanup companies can provide specialized cleaning and decontamination services. This includes the safe removal and disposal of biohazardous materials, disinfection of surfaces, and implementation of preventive measures to minimize the spread of pathogens.  Another major component of any of our services where we clean when someone dies is to deal with the odors that permeate the aftermath of a death.  It is bad in all cases but is particularly bad when a corpse was unattended and decomposed. 
  • Odor Removal: Crime scene cleanup companies are equipped to handle the removal of unpleasant odors resulting from decomposition, mold growth, or other sources. They use specialized equipment and techniques to identify and eliminate the source of the odor, ensuring a fresh and clean environment.
  • Suicide Cleanup: If a property has had a suicide then the biohazard cleanup and restoration process should be handled by our professional cleaners. They have the expertise to remove unwanted hazards such as the blood left behind, clean affected surfaces, and restore the property to a clean and safe condition.
  • Emergency Cleanup: Crime scene cleanup companies may offer emergency cleanup services for situations such as sewage backups, water damage, or fire and smoke damage. They can quickly respond to mitigate the damage, remove debris, and restore the affected area to its pre-incident condition.
