Crime Scene Cleaners Can Handle It
Crime Scene Cleaning Company in Arizona, Nevada, Southern California
Crime scene cleaners handle the horrible task of dealing with the aftermath of blood spills and other biohazard removal. A crime scene cleaning company relieves the family or property owner of a job they really aren’t prepared for. Professional cleaners understand what’s at stake and are specially trained for biohazard remediation. Aside from its gruesome nature, forensics cleaning demands complete decontamination and sanitization using commercial and hospital grade cleaning products; disposal of biohazardous waste must follow strict regulations.
For Southern California forensics cleanup, the team to call is Sterile Pros. For cleaning large blood spills in a commercial or industrial setting, there are additional employee protection guidelines which require the person to have been trained in blood-borne pathogens, safety equipment (PPE) and hazardous communications protocols. We must cordon off the area and restrict it from access until all materials have been removed or cleaned and fully sanitized.
Step One: Control the Contamination
For maximum control, our technicians use proven sanitation procedures, by establishing three zones using plastic sheeting and bio-tape to separate the contaminated area from other parts of the building. This prevents cross-contamination from occurring between clean and affected rooms:
- The Control Zone is the contamination area, where work will take place.
- The Buffer Zone is where technicians put on personal protective equipment, and fill disposal boxes.
- The Clean Zone is designated to store tools and equipment, in order to prevent cross contamination.
During all stages of the sanitation process, Sterile Pro technicians are fully protected by Personal Protective Equipment, including respiratory gear, a double layer of gloves, and hazmat suits designed especially for biohazard recovery.
We treat all crime scenes as if they contain a life threatening infection, because some of the worst viruses are known to survive in blood and biological materials. Statistics from the CDC show that 1 in 24 people has either HIV, Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C.
Step Two: Biohazard Cleaning and Structural Removal
- Cleaning: Sterile Pro technicians start by removing all traces of dirt, chemicals, blood and biological materials from the control zone. Personal property that cannot be remediated must be disassembled and disposed of as medical waste.
- Sanitization: After cleaning, technicians treat the control zone with disinfectants by spraying surfaces at precise intervals. Following treatment, the crew wipes all surfaces manually a second time before using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, the same technology used by hospitals to verify sanitation level.
- Deodorization: In the final step, Sterile Pros uses a deodorizer to eliminate the possibility of lingering odors.
