Crime Scene Cleanup Services

What Our Crime Scene Cleanup Services Can Do For You

The history of crime scene cleanup as a professional service is relatively recent, emerging in the latter half of the 20th century. Prior to the development of specialized crime scene cleanup companies like Californiacleanit, the responsibility for cleaning up crime scenes often fell on the family or property owners, law enforcement personnel, or even public health departments.  This was a huge undertaking for many of these people and likely caused many psychological problems as the trauma scenes that are cleaned can be very traumatic and dangerous if you are not trained and prepared. 

In the 1960s and 1970s, as concerns about bloodborne pathogens and the risk of infection grew, the need for professional crime scene cleanup services became apparent. The realization that the cleaning and decontamination of crime scenes required specialized training, equipment, and adherence to strict protocols led to the establishment of our company and others like us.  By having the proper training the hazardous elements at a crime scene can be more effectively discovered, cleaned, and sanitized.  In addition to this, the rooms can be deodorized and the biohazard elements such as blood and bodily fluids can be safely transported and disposed of and a registered biohazard waste disposal and incineration facility in California.

During a crime scene clean-up, the following steps are typically undertaken:

  1. Assessment: The cleanup team assesses the scene to determine the extent of contamination and the required resources for cleanup. They identify biohazards, areas of concern, and any potential risks.
  2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Cleanup technicians don personal protective equipment, including gloves, masks, goggles, and full-body suits, to minimize the risk of exposure to biohazards.
  3. Containment: The area is cordoned off and contained to prevent cross-contamination and maintain the safety and privacy of the surrounding environment.
  4. Removal of Biohazardous Materials: Any biohazardous materials, such as blood, bodily fluids, or tissue, are safely and thoroughly removed from the scene. Specialized tools and techniques are employed to minimize the risk of exposure and properly contain the materials for disposal.
  5. Cleaning and Decontamination: The affected area is meticulously cleaned and decontaminated using professional-grade disinfectants and cleaning agents. Every surface and object is thoroughly cleaned to ensure the removal of potential pathogens and contaminants.
  6. Disposal of Waste: Biohazardous waste is carefully packaged, labeled, and disposed of in compliance with local, state, and federal regulations. Californiacleanit’s trauma cleanup technicians follow specific protocols for the proper handling and disposal of biohazardous materials.
  7. Odor Removal: If necessary, odor removal techniques are applied to eliminate any lingering smells associated with the crime scene. This may involve the use of specialized deodorizing agents, air purifiers, or other odor-neutralizing methods.
  8. Restoration: Once the cleanup and decontamination are complete, the affected area can now be restored to its pre-incident condition as much as possible. This may involve repairing or replacing damaged structures, surfaces, or materials which may take outside resources to do as not all crime scene cleanup processes involve the restoration and some homeowners want the restoration to be done by carpenters familiar with the style of home they live in.  This can be discussed when you call one of the locations we offer services and find out what is best for your particular situation. 

Throughout the process, crime scene cleanup technicians work with professionalism, discretion, and respect for the individuals involved and the sensitive nature of the situation.

It’s important to note that the specific procedures and protocols may vary slightly depending on the nature of the crime scene and what our technicians can do due to the extent of damage when providing the cleanup services. However, the primary focus is always on ensuring the safe, thorough, and compassionate restoration of the crime scene.
