Whose responsibility is it to clean a crime scene?
Depending on the type of crime that has been committed, cleaning up a crime scene can be an upsetting and messy job.
Cleaning a crime scene is not a job for the inexperienced, it requires specialist knowledge and equipment to complete the job safely. Many people incorrectly presume that the police or crime scene investigators clean up crime scenes, but this is not the case. Once written confirmation has been issued by the police, it is the property owner’s responsibility to arrange for the area to be professionally cleaned.
Do you need professionals?
Cleaning up a crime scene is a hazardous and unpleasant job that should not be carried out by anyone without specialist training in how to do so safely.
Many crime scenes contain biohazards such as bodily fluids or remains that have the potential to spread infection. There may also be sharps such as needles and blades at a crime scene. These items pose an immediate safety risk and are also health hazards due to the possibility of infection.
Biohazards that may be present at a crime scene include:
- Human tissue
Biohazards can cause serious illnesses in humans as they can carry diseases and infections. Any area that has been contaminated by a biohazard must be professionally cleaned, disinfected, and decontaminated to make it safe and sanitary again.
Here at Slime and Grime Cleaning, our specialist crime scene cleaners have received thorough training in bloodborne pathogens, and the risks associated with biohazards. Our team will always carry out a risk assessment before beginning to clean a crime scene and will wear personal protective equipment (PPE).
We always choose the most appropriate cleaning techniques and equipment to clean up a crime scene quickly, efficiently, and safely, to protect human health and the environment.
