When a violent death occurs in someone’s home, the family typically doesn’t move out of the house. The cleaners’ job is to remove any sign of what happened and any biohazards that result from such an incident. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 these substances are required to be cleaned by trained professionals. Regulations deem all bodily fluids to be biohazards, so any blood or tissue at a trauma scene is considered a potential source of infection.
A trauma clean-up is a term we use to describe any crime scene, accident or trauma that has occurred and involves and requires the service of biological cleaning. Trauma events could include homicides, suicides and human decompositions. A crime or trauma scene may involve a single blood loss event following an accident, burglary or homicide. We also clean up unattended deaths.
