Forensic cleanup and restoration might sound like something from the set of the hit show CSI. That’s because many forensic cleanups and restorations occur at the scene of murders, suicides, and other traumatic events. The cleanup for these situations is often more complex than a basement flood or kitchen fire. While there are health risks associated with fire damage restoration and water damage restoration, the forensic cleanup presents many unique health risks.
Forensic cleanups do not only occur at the scene of a murder or death. There are several scenarios where a forensic cleaning service might be needed. We’ll discuss the different situations and the risks they pose below.
As we discussed above, forensic restoration or cleanups can be needed in a variety of situations. Aladdin’s is certified through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as well as a proud member of the American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA). We are experts in cleaning and restoring these traumatic scenes.
Not all deaths are murders or suicides of course. Often, there are accidents which cause the loss of blood. Also, even peaceful deaths can result in biomedical fluids being expelled at the scene. There are so many potential health risks in cleaning these situations, that it is imperative to contact the Forensic Cleanup experts at Aladdin’s.
Much like all deaths are not murders, not all crimes are murders either. Vicious crimes like rape or assault can leave behind blood and other bodily fluids that can transmit diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, and more. Our team is certified and trained in disease transmission prevention, so Aladdin’s can be your go to if you have a crime scene on your hands.
While society jokes about the “crazy cat lady”, there are numerous times that homes are overrun with pet waste. This can just a easily be a health risk. While it may seem simple, it can be a huge transmitter of diseases. Aladdin’s forensic cleanup teams can handle this kind of forensic restoration as well.
A broken pipe can bring more than simple water damage. Often, raw sewage can enter the home or office, causing more than wet carpets. Sewage can be a harbinger of many diseases and infections, and should be cleaned by a forensic restoration team, such as the team at Aladdin’s.
Aladdin’s Forensic Restoration Division will clean and dispose of bio-hazardous material from trauma, crime and natural causes of death or injury scenes. Services are available for industrial sites, vehicles, private and commercial or residential properties. We clean, sanitize, deodorize and prepare the contaminated area for renovation. All contaminated materials collected are properly sealed, labeled, removed and transported to medical waste facilities in accordance with all OSHA regulations.
