We are not just cleaning the scenes of unfortunate events; we are ensuring that those who come in contact with the scene at a later date are safe. When cleaned incorrectly, a homicide scene can present major liability to a property or business owner. Tenants or employees who become sick due to an improperly cleaned crime scene can raise legal issues down the road. Not only does this homicide scene need a complete cleaning where the majority of the crime took place, but there’s also a need to decontaminate the adjacent areas which may contain a bloodborne pathogen risk.
Maintenance crews are not trained and do not possess the proper equipment to completely disinfect a homicide scene.
