Crime Scene Cleanup

The mess left after car accidents, death, and crime is tough to handle. Businesses exist whose sole function is to take care of the aftermath.

For anyone who's watched Law & Order in the last two decades, the scene is recognizable. Detectives show up at a crime scene. They find evidence. They theorize what has occurred. Detectives magically appear at another location to begin building a case. Part of the story is missing. Doesn't anything happen after the cops leave? The answer is cleaning.

No one watches a program to witness deep cleaning in action so it's obvious that we don't see it on TV. But there's another reason why crime scene cleanup isn't shown on your TV shows: the police (often the main characters on a show) aren't responsible for cleanup; the victim's family must clean the scene. The thought of family cleaning up after a loved one's suicide, car wreck, or murder is unseemly. Luckily, there are businesses that specialize in bio hazard cleanup companies Zionhill PA.

This industry formed out of necessity. A family shouldn't have to cleanup after the death of a loved one. They specialize in making the area livable.

To clean up a crime, these specialists rely on these tools:

  • Everyday cleaning supplies such as mops and buckets
  • Long scrubbing brushes
  • Putty knives
  • Truck-mounted steam-injection machines
  • Enzyme solvents to kill bacteria and liquefy blood
  • And more

The job isn't pretty, but someone has to do it while the victim's family copes with their loss.
