The importance of Crime Scene Cleanup

Most people only see crime, death and trauma scenes on TV shows like “CSI”, “Law & Order” and many others where only post death scenes are shown. For hundreds of Americans every day, crime and trauma becomes a harsh reality.  Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard decontamination for death, trauma, crime, suicide and many other forms of biohazard site cleanups.

Death, especially in a violent manner, are messy and almost always contain blood and other bodily fluid spills. Once investigators have completed their jobs, the victims family, friends or the property owner becomes responsible for cleanup and decontamination.

The same scenario applies to crime scenes, even non-violent crimes. There is always fingerprint dust, luminol and other materials used by investigators that are nearly impossible for untrained individuals to clean up. If there is glass breakage there is always a potential for the presence of blood that may not be seen by an individual who attempts to clean the site on their own.

Bio Scene Clean Up maintains proper equipment that is necessary in the discovery of blood and other biohazard materials. Our technicians are qualified to handle and remove the biohazard materials and decontaminate the site returning it to a pre-incident condition.  When you are faced with these situations it is important that you know what could happen if a site is not properly cleaned:

• Undiscovered blood can cause horrific odors, attract bugs and potentially spread communicable disease

• You or the property owner could be held liable for inadequate cleaning if someone’s health becomes compromised or a communicable disease is spread.

• You may end up paying thousands of dollars to restore areas that a professional company like Bio Scene Clean Up could have been able to salvage.

These are just a few examples. Every situation is different and requires a specific cleanup  protocol.  If you or someone you know has experienced a crime, death or traumatic incident, call us now. We offer fast 27/7 emergency services to assist you with proper clean up.

Blood Cleanup Procedures

Blood and other bodily fluid spills that occur inside or in an outside environment need to be decontaminated to prevent the possible transmission of communicable disease and other health risks. Bio Scene Clean Up provides blood cleanup and other biohazard decontamination services in the Tampa Bay and Sarasota Florida areas.
Even a tiny drop of blood, if splashed, can cover a large surface area so it’s important that you hire a professional biohazard cleanup company to assist you in restoring the site to completely safe condition quickly. Our technicians maintain specific bloodborne pathogen training and are familiar with the practices of safe biohazard handling and removal.

We frequently receive calls related to death, trauma, suicide and even violent crime scenes that contain the presence of blood and other biohazards. Once investigators or emergency personnel leave the site, it then becomes the property owners responsibility to have the aftermath cleaned up. Police and emergency personnel do not clean these area. They often times leave behind medical waste, blood soaked materials, fingerprint dust, luminol and other materials used in their investigation or on site treatment. Bio Scene Clean Up offers 24 hour emergency dispatch to help clients who are in need of biohazard decontamination.

These sites should not be cleaned using normal household chemicals. Chemicals not designed for biohazard cleanup can actually make the site much harder for professionals to re-clean. Our technicians work with specific equipment that will detect even the smallest traces of blood and we make certain that the scenes are completely free from any biohazard materials that could potentially affect the health of others.  This diminishes the risk of potential transmission of diseases and the liability of the property owner for not having it properly cleaned.

If you or someone you know has experienced an accident or traumatic event that requires biohazard cleanup, contact our office immediately for assistance.  We are familiar with all Federal and State biohazard cleanup regulations and can offer our assistance in helping file insurance and other financial assistance claims.

Our technicians work discreetly to remediate the site following strict OSHA guidelines and protocols set by State and Federal agencies. Cleanup teams are compassionate and experienced in working in workplace environments.


Traumatic death is emotionally overwhelming to the victims families and loved ones. These types of death sites pose a high risk of infectious disease and other biohazard contaminations from the presence of blood, bodily fluids and the microorganisms that are associated with decomposition. We suggest that you always hire a licensed professional company like Bio Scene Clean Up to perform these tasks. We maintain necessary equipment and use industrial chemicals to help clean and remediate the site. Household products used in this type of cleanup can only temporarily mask the biohazards that remain putting property owners and others health in jeopardy.


Traffic accidents occur frequently and most always require some form of biohazard cleaning. Some accidents are fatal, others leave the victims critically injured. Emergency response personnel arrive at accident scenes and once they’re gone, usually leave behind medical waste and other materials that contain biohazards. Since the injured person’s medical conditions are not known, there is a high risk for potential transmission of infectious diseases and other microorganisms that can be harmful to someone’s health if not handled properly.  Our technicians also provide vehicle cleaning services to remove blood and other materials from automobiles involved in accidents.  If these vehicles are not properly cleaned the owner can experience terrible odors, bugs and other types of health risks associated from an improper cleanup.

Bio Scene Clean Up provides many other biohazard services as well, please visit our website at for complete information or contact our office to get immediate assistance in cleaning your biohazard site.

Biohazard Cleanup form Prison Worker Suicides

Bio Scene Clean UP receives many calls for aftermath cleanup from suicide scenes.  When people hear suicides they usually think of depressed, emotionally challenged individuals alone at home or in some remote areas. This is true in many cases, however suicide victims can be someone with emotional disorders, professionals in high stress industries, someone with financial problems or even children with relation to crimes, drugs, gangs or even bullying.

Recently the awareness of personnel in America’s prison systems has noticed an increase in the amount of staff suicides. Primarily the thought is that there is a direct relation between the dismal environment that workers endure and the feeling of hopelessness that is associated with prisoners, especially ones that have been sentenced to life without parole.  These workers typically work long hours and in most cases are confined to one specific area and never see the outside world once they report for duty.

These workers deal with violent fights, suicides, murders and many other scenarios inside prison facilities so it’s understandable that it can take an emotional toll on workers.  Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard cleanup services for police jail cells, prisons and other secure facilities where biohazards such as blood, urine, feces and other bodily fluids are present.  We are skilled in handling and removal of biohazards in a discreet, safe manner and restoring these scenes to a safe sanitized environment. 

Agencies and prisons often contract our services due to liabilities associated with the biohazard cleanup. It is too costly and time consuming for prisons, police departments and some emergency transport services to maintain the proper permits and certifications needed to perform the cleanup job. The risks associated with the cleanup process are simply too great for these agencies. Our company is experienced, insured and we maintain all of the necessary permits to handle biohazard cleanup jobs.

Servicing the Tampa Bay and Sarasota FL areas we offer 24 hour emergency dispatch to serve our clients. Depending on the type of incident, we have staff accustomed to working in maximum security facilities and are familiar with the privacy protocols associated with these incident scenes. Contact our office to learn more about contracting our company for your commercial or agency needs.

Children dying in hot cars is on the rise this summer.

Summertime temperatures in every region of our country have risen over the past several years. With global warming and other environmental elements, the temperatures seem to show a steady increase.  Double the hot temperatures and an automobile with windows rolled up and you have a fatal scenario for children and even elderly that are left alone in hot cars. If an average outside temperature is 90 degrees in a closed car it can reach in excess of 110 degrees in as little as 30 minutes. Children, elderly and even pets left alone in a closed car in this extreme heat are literally dying from heat strokes.

Bio Scene Clean Up provides cleanup services for death, crime, trauma, suicide and many other biohazard incidents.  We receive calls frequently for cleanup of automobiles that contain biohazards from blood and other potentially dangerous bodily fluids after someone had been in an accident, committed suicide or expired in a vehicle.

There are currently huge controversies all across our nation regarding parents and caregivers leaving children in locked cars during extreme heat.  Not that it’s acceptable to do it at all (most people’s opinion), but  there is too much public media and awareness of this for someone to claim they didn’t know. In most cases it is later determined that the parent or caregiver was suffering from emotional disorders, addictions and other problematic scenarios that attributed to the death of these victims.

Bio Scene Clean Up is experienced in cleanup of aftermath from biohazard scenes like this. Our company is certified and licensed for biohazard handling and disposal. Our teams consist of discreet, compassionate professionals who are experienced in dealing with clients during the cleanup of traumatic events and death scenes.  Servicing the entire Tampa Bay and Sarasota areas of Florida, we are able to provide emergency dispatch to meet our client’s needs.  If you, or someone you know experiences a traumatic event and biohazard cleanup is necessary contact our office immediately.

Violent Auto Hijacking Crimes and Biohazards

Over the past decade violent carjacking crimes have steadily been on the rise. Bio Scene Clean Up provides cleanup services for death, trauma, crime, suicide and many other biohazard incidents.  These violent carjacking crimes frequently require cleanup from gunshots and other bodily injuries where there is a presence of blood and bodily fluids.  Our technicians are experienced in the cleanup and decontamination of blood from these vehicles, returning them to a pre-incident state. We are certified and trained in the removal and disposal of most biohazards and follow strict Federal and State regulations associated with biohazard handling.

Often times with automobile crimes we find that we have to remove and replace parts of the automobile to ensure that the vehicle is completely free of all biohazard materials. This may include removal and replacement of seats, carpeting, dashes, consoles and other pieces. If as little as one or two tiny blood drops are missed during the cleanup may cause infectious pathogens that can affect the health of anyone that may come in contact with it. There is also the possibility of bad odors and the attraction of bugs and insects that are extremely difficult to remove.

Bio Scene Clean Up also receives frequent calls to provide the same cleaning and sanitation services on police transport and other emergency vehicles. Any time these transport vehicles contain biohazards such as blood, vomit, feces, urine or other biohazards, they must be removed from service and properly cleaned and sanitized before they can be used again.  Police and other emergency departments are now employing professional companies like ours to perform these cleanup services as it is too costly to maintain personnel and certifications for staff members to perform the cleanup.  They have also found that there is less liability in hiring a professional cleanup company like Bio Scene Clean Up because we are specifically trained for what we do, maintain all necessary permits and certifications and can offer the assurance that these vehicles are safe and returned to service as quick as possible.

If you or someone you know is the victim of a violent carjacking crime or you need professional biohazard cleanup services, contact our office immediately. We offer 24 hour emergency dispatch to serve our clients.
