Summary 

 

SCOPE OF WORKS: FORENSIC CRIME & TRAUMA SCENE CLEANING 

 

SITE ISSUES: EXPOSURE TO BLOOD, BODILY FLUIDS & POTENTIALLY INFECTIOUS MATERIALS

 

DATE: 24th December,2020 

 

OUR SOLUTION: Brooklands were called out by the police on Christmas Eve to clean up the aftermath of a violent crime, we quickly responded and attended the site within 4 hours of the call.

 

Once Law enforcement had finished investigating the crime scene, the site could be handed to us and clean up could commence.

 

The site had blood on the walls, ceiling, floors and doors, a traumatic for the resident and something not recommended for people to carry out themselves. Our background in understanding of eliminating dangerous biohazards allowed us to clean the site quickly, compassionatly and professionally.

 

The blood and body fluids found at a crime scene can carry bloodborne pathogens, including MRSA, HIV, hepatitis B and C, and clostridium difficile (C. diff). So our first job was to make sure the team are fully protected to remove the risk of infection.

Our personal protective equipment included disposable, non-porous gloves, chemical spill boots, filtered respirators, and a protective suit.

We then removed all the visible blood and by fluids putting all the waste into the correct biohazard disposal containers.  The clean up was followed with cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing the surfaces.

Once all the waste is correctly disposed of the property was handed back to the resident with no evidence of blood or debris so they could return home knowing their house was clean and safe.
