The traumatic death of a family member or close friend can cause emotional pain and suffering that can take years to heal. When that death leaves behind a trauma scene, it can add to the pain and suffering if you or other family members try to clean up the area alone. It is recommended that you use a professional cleaning service to ensure all blood borne pathogens are properly removed and disposed of. ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons is a trusted professional trauma cleanup company in Chicago, IL, and we are available 24/7 to clean up the scene.
Blood borne pathogens are a major concern when cleaning up a trauma scene. Without the help of professionals, you run the risk of leaving behind disease-causing pathogens. Some diseases, such as Hepatitis, can actually live outside the body for weeks, which poses a danger to anyone around the trauma scene.
Blood stained furniture must also be completely cleaned or disposed of by a licensed biohazard facility, which can be arranged by a professional cleaning company. Concrete that is stained with blood can take hours of scrubbing with no results. By utilizing the proper training and techniques, professional equipment, and cleaning solutions, the area can be restored to its prior condition.
Proper trauma cleanup must follow all OSHA regulations. When you hire a professional company, make sure to verify they follow all OSHA regulations and they use a biohazard facility for the disposal of any waste or property. Most reputable companies will disclose this information on their website, but if you have any doubts, call and ask questions.
