Crime Scene Cleanup Lakeland, FL

Bio Scene Clean Up has been providing Crime Scene Cleanup in Lakeland, FL and surrounding cities for decades.  Crime Scene Investigations are much more complex than what most of us see on popular television shows like “CSI”.

When a crime occurs, responders who perform the investigation appear and isolate the crime scene to look for evidence.  This process can take hours, days or even weeks depending on the nature of the crime. Investigators sometimes comb every inch of a scene looking for evidence that will help prove what actually happened, especially if there are no witnesses to the crime. In searching for these clues the potential for scattering dangerous biohazards occurs. In some instances, what starts off being a small area can become an expanded scene with many different types of biohazards.

If blood or other bodily fluids are present as a result of a crime, the chances of spreading biohazards to other parts of the scene are likely.  Pathogens from a crime scene can be redistributed by footsteps, medical waste being moved, dried blood becoming airborne particles and more.  These types of scenes need professional crime scene cleanup services provided by Bio Scene Clean Up.  Once investigators and emergency personnel have completed their investigation, the scenes are usually then turned over to the person who owns the scene or a friend or family member.

Investigators and emergency responders do not clean up these crime scenes. If you are not experienced in crime scene biohazard cleanup, call the professionals at Bio Scene Clean Up. We maintain all of the necessary equipment and certifications to perform safe, thorough crime scene cleanup in Lakeland or surrounding areas.  Even if the crime scene doesn’t appear to have biohazards, fingerprint dust and other methods used for the purpose of investigating a crime scene may be potentially harmful. Bio Scene Clean Up technicians are experienced in the safe cleanup and remediation of crime scenes and through the use of specialized equipment and cleaning process are able to discover even trace elements of biohazards that may not be visible to the human eye.

It is not possible for untrained individuals to know about all of the possibilities of biohazards associated with crime scene cleanup. The services we provide are meant to help protect you and others who may be involved with these types of scenes.

Blood Biohazard Cleanup Services Tampa Palms, FL

At some point during our lives it’s inevitable that we must deal with blood clean up from a trauma, death or some form of accident. Bio Scene Clean Up provides blood cleanup service in Tampa Palms, FL and surrounding cities.

When blood leaves the body it eventually dries. Depending on the type of surface that the blood is on depends on how long the drying process is.  Blood leaves the body in liquid format and then begins clotting where the potential of particles flaking can create serious biohazard risks. Clotting can happen in as little as fifteen minutes and the dried flakes can become airborne (depending on the blood scene scenario) spreading potentially dangerous biohazards to other areas away from where the blood spill occurred.

In most cases the medical conditions of the person who’s experienced a trauma or death causing blood spills are not known. If you are the person responsible for blood cleanup services, it’s important that you know the risks associated with cleanup and hire Bio Scene Clean Up, a Tampa Palms Blood Cleanup company to safely clean and sanitize the biohazard area.  Once blood leaves the body, there are many factors that cause blood to quickly become a dangerous biohazard.

How to get rid of a biohazard mattress?

Frequently we receive calls from clients asking about mattress disposal and what exactly constitutes a biohazard situation that would require professional disposal.  Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard cleanup and waste disposal in Lakeland, Florida.

Most people don’t understand that anytime blood or bodily fluids come in contact with a mattress there is the potential for a dangerous biohazard situation.  Blood, urine, fecal matter and other bodily fluids can all contain infectious diseases that must be properly cleaned.  Blood and bodily fluids once dried can become airborne and are able to be ingested by normal breathing by anyone in the affected area.  Because these scenarios are usually related to trauma, crime or medical circumstances, you cannot just sit a mattress out for normal garbage collection.  Doing so risks the health of the workers who collect garbage, the area where the mattress is stored while waiting for garbage pick up and even the disposal site.

Blood and bodily fluids can cause horrific odors and attract the presence of bugs and insects for weeks after an incident occurs.  Bio Scene Clean Up uses industrial chemicals to properly clean and disinfect these types of scenes.

Proper mattress disposal would include our cutting away the area affected with the biohazard, sealing the waste in proper biohazard bags or containers and taking the waste to a facility that is certified in the proper disposal of biohazard waste, usually be incineration.  Because biohazards are found in many forms related to the human body, it is always best to consult with a biohazard cleanup company like Bio Scene Clean Up to ensure that mattresses are properly disposed of.

Contact our office for more information on how are services can keep you safe in the event of a biohazard accident. Our technicians are certified and will be able to help you decide which method of disposal is right for your scenario.

What exactly is emergency response?

Bio Scene Clean Up  provides emergency biohazard cleanup from Crime, Death, Trauma and Blood Scenes.  Each scene we clean has a different set of circumstances, so how do you know what is really a situation that requires emergency response.  The short answer is, almost every case involving blood, bodily fluids and other matter from these types of scenes is a potentially dangerous environment for people.

If you are responsible for the cleanup of a blood or biohazard scene and there are other people living in the home or it’s a workplace with employees in the same area, this would constitute an emergency response need.  If there is a trauma, blood spill or medical biohazard situation in an area that is closed off from contact with anyone, or a scene like an undiscovered death where the area can be quarantined, then it is easier for companies like Bio Scene Clean Up to schedule a non-emergency cleanup.

Any time you are faced with the responsibility of having to have a biohazard scene cleaned and materials removed, you run the risk of exposing yourself and others to potentially dangerous pathogens that can be harmful to your health and in certain cases, even fatal. People who are not certified in biohazard cleanup and removal should never attempt to remediate a scene themselves.  Improper cleaning can easily spread potentially dangerous biohazards to other people or areas.

Out trained, professional staff is experienced in certified biohazard cleanup and we maintain the necessary equipment and cleanup protocols that help protect our clients from these types of liabilities. If you experience a trauma, crime or other blood and biohazard situation, contact us for more information. We will ask a series of questions that will help determine if you need emergency cleanup services or just standard cleaning and biohazard removal.

To answer in short, the owner of a property, or its authorized managing agent is responsible for the cleanup, removal and disposal of any biohazard materials found on their property.  If these biohazards are directly related to an incident involving a tenant, it is still the property owner or managers responsibility. Ordinarily, there are multiple tenants in or around rental properties and it is up to the owner or management of the property to protect the health and well being of the other residents or people who may come in contact with an affected area.

Our service technicians are licensed and specifically trained to clean, remove and dispose of any forms of biohazard found at a property. The typical forms are form Crime, Death, Suicide or violent trauma but can also include illegal drug manufacturing, hoarding and other forms of gross filth and negligence from tenants.  Because biohazards take on many forms, landlords or property owners should never attempt to clean these scenes on their own or have an employee perform the cleanup.  Let’s face it, how many landlords or property owners actually know the health status of their tenants.

If a biohazard situation is discovered, the scene must be treated as though it is extremely dangerous and every precaution taken to protect anyone who may be in contact with the property.  Bio Scene Clean Up technicians are experienced in dealing with property owners and managers to discreetly remediate the property and work hard to eliminate all traces of biohazards quickly and safely.

Hazards on the job

When most people think of biohazard cleanup, they usually associate it with the process of cleaning up blood but there is so much more to what a professional biohazard technician does.  Being a biohazard cleanup expert is a dangerous job and many hazards associated with what we do are not known to untrained professionals.

As a biohazard cleanup professional Bio Scene Clean Up performs blood cleanup services which also entails murder scenes, suicide and violent crime scenes. While these are the most common jobs we perform, we also provide services for hoarding cleanup, junk removal, workplace related accidents, vehicle clean up services and even meth lab or other illegal drug cleanup.

It’s understood that blood cleanup has a huge potential for exposure to infectious pathogens that can be deadly if not handled properly. What’s not considered is the fact that hoarding, drug, junk and vehicle cleanup jobs also contain many hazards that are just as severe.  When cleaning drug scenes there are always chances of infection from contact with needles, explosive or deadly chemicals that could be ingested and even airborne pathogens that contain infectious bacteria from emergency vehicle cleanup jobs.

Because all incidents have a large level of uncertainty about the victims, it is imperative that extreme precautions be taken while handling the cleanup process of these jobs.  If an untrained individual were to attempt to clean up a biohazard scene without following proper protocols and decontamination practices, they may be held responsible if anyone were to become ill or die as a result of the improper cleanup.

If you experience a trauma or tragedy and are uncertain about the type of cleanup that may be needed, it is always best to contact a professional cleanup company like Bio Scene Clean Up who will be able to help you determine the level of services needed.
