Our name is Bran “decon“. This is what we do. We decontaminate biologically or chemically contaminated scenes and restore the scene to its pre-incident state. We remove any sign of what happened and any biohazards that result from such an incident. Federal regulations deem all bodily fluids to be biohazards, so any blood or tissue at a crime scene is considered a potential source of infection.
You need special knowledge to safely handle biohazardous material and to know what to look for at the scene — for instance, if there’s a thumbnail-size bloodstain on the carpet, there’s a good chance that there’s a 2-foot-diameter bloodstain on the floorboards underneath it. You can’t just clean the carpet and call it a day. You also need permits to transport and dispose of biohazardous waste. We have all of the necessary permits, training and, perhaps most important, willingness to handle material that would send most of us running out the door to throw up in the bushes.
It is illegal to require an employee to clean up blood and bodily fluids without proper certification. Due to the hazardous nature of such work, anyone who does not possess the appropriate training and equipment may contract a communicable disease. Call Us! We’re here to help.
Business owners, take note: the worst action you can take in the event of a crime scene or accidental death is to assign the job to the on-duty maintenance crew or another employee.
