Why do we have Crime Scene Cleaners?

In brief, other types of cleaning businesses do not approach cleaning like the crime scene cleanup companies approach their type of cleaning, biohazard cleaning.

Looking to the history of crime scene cleanup, families and businesses experiencing a violent death from a crime or suicide would rather not clean after the traumatic death. Until recently, within the last 30 years, carpet cleaners and morticians filled this crime scene cleaning need for the few families with discretionary income.

Others began to specialize in this new "crime scene cleanup" industry because of its income potential. When congress passed its bloodborne pathogen legislation, it then created an inevitable crime scene cleanup industry.

A sense of caution grew as bloodborne pathogen knowledge reached the general public. Blood exposure now meant exposure to bloodborne pathogens like HIV. Long held cultural taboos also followed crime scene cleanup technicians to the field. Without formal biological training their family and peer knowledge of blood gave direction to their fear of blood. These two elements, legislation and the unkown of crime scene cleanup accounted for those early, extraordinary crime scene cleanup fees.

In fact, even today some newer crime scene cleanup technicians exaggerate the biohazard risks, which creates a problem for education around genuine concerns.

Keep in mind that bloodborne biohazards give way to frequent hand washing, but needle stick and other puncture wounds should give rise to caution. Inhaling dried, flaky blood also requires special caution when begiming a crime scene cleanup job. Because wet and moist blood present possible Hepatitis C infection and other illnesses, we consider wet and moist blood, as well as dried, flaky blood, among the biohazard waste materials.

So the risks of physical injury persist throughout crime scene cleanup as in any other field, but magnified by blood's dangers. The risk of physical injury during demolition work exists as in any construction trade, but for blood's dangers. Crime scene cleanup technicians now wear biohazard cleanup clothing for their environment. This "protectice personnel equipment" remains hallmark of biohazard cleanup.

Because death begins the decomposition process when the heart stops beating, contamination of the environment soon follows. Hepatitis C, with its long life expectancy in the wild, requires forethought, distance, and care when cleaning.

For those unfortunate infected few, healthy living, exercise, and other worthwhile hygiene habits help to slow Hepatitis C's destructive destiny, and little else works to stop it.

HIV carries the second most concern for crime scene cleanup technicians. Known as AIDS in its advanced stage of development, it carries much less risk for the cleaner than Hepatitis C. Today we accept AIDS as a terrible disease that kills many people from many different backgrounds.

When it comes to crime scene cleanup of biohazards, we prepare well in advance to confront blood and bloodborne pathogens (blood carried germs) in the wild.

For crime scene cleanup, certification in bloodborne pathogen training is found quite cheaply and quickly through the American Red Cross.
