What Cleaning Up Crime Scenes Is Really Like
With a decade of experience behind us, at Slime & Grime we’ve probably seen every crime scene imaginable. Of course, many people have watched TV programs that make these situations look exciting and dramatic, but what’s it really like?
It Can Be Dangerous
In many cases, the reason for a professional contractor to be called in is because of the potential risk to public safety. If there’s drug paraphernalia on site, such as used hypodermic needles, they need to be collected and disposed of safely. If there has been a traumatic incident, there is often the presence of blood, which in itself can be harmful to anyone who comes into contact with it as it could carry bloodborne diseases such as Hepatitis B or C, or HIV.
It Can Be Distressing
Unfortunately, when dealing with a crime scene, it’s likely that either a person(s) or property has been injured, damaged or destroyed. In any situation, family members, friends and emergency services workers may be present on the scene, so it’s important that the cleaning contractor works to the highest standards while respecting the people around them.
