Gun Crimes Lead To Dangerous Biohazard Scenes

No matter where you live in the United States, gun crimes are still a reality that we face daily.  From large metropolitan areas to rural small towns, Bio Scene Clean Up receives frequent calls from authorities and property owners requesting crime scene, death and blood cleanup services. In many of these cases, shootings were accidental but there is still a major volume of violent gun crimes committed each year.

Several factors attribute to these crimes and many times involve domestic disagreements, murder/suicides and people who are subject to illegal drug use or anti-depressant medications.  Though statistics of the individual causes aren’t known, the same common biohazard denominator is true in all scenes involving shootings.  Blood, bodily fluids and other matter is present in these scenes and it must be professionally cleaned and removed in order to ensure a safe environment for everyone involved.

Some authorities make referrals of professional crime scene cleanup companies like Bio Scene Clean Up but many leave the responsibility up to the victims, family members and property owners to find a certified biohazard cleanup company.  We possess the qualifications and necessary certifications to properly clean up death, murder, suicide and crime scenes and also provide services to decontaminate illegal drug scenes (meth labs) or the biohazards from hoarding and gross filth conditions.

Depending on the state you reside in, each municipality has their own regulations and protocol for the handling, removal and disposal of biohazard waste.  Although there are some federal regulations, it’s important to know these protocols and regulations. Any individual attempting to clean up these types of scenes who isn’t certified and does not follow these protocols could very easily find themselves liable for improper clean up practices and may be putting the health of themselves and others in jeopardy.  Whenever there is a presence of blood, tissue, fluids and other biohazards special industrial chemicals and equipment are needed to ensure the scenes are free from biohazards and completely decontaminated.  If a scene is improperly cleaned it’s possible to have horrible odors and the presence of some dangerous pathogens or biohazards can remain present for weeks or months after clean up is performed.

If you experience any of these types of scenarios, please contact our office immediately. The cost of professional cleanup services is far less than the liability you face from improper cleanup of these dangerous scenes.
