Crime scene cleaning, also known as forensic cleaning, includes crime scenes, accidents and situations where a traumatic event has occurred. In the aftermath of a violent crime, family and friends of the victim are devastated. During this time of grief, they have to arrange to have the crime scene cleaned. It’s very stressful. That’s why for crime scene cleaning, you want a crime scene cleaning service that is compassionate, professional and ethical. And they need to have experience.
Forensic cleaning requires special training—organic matter like blood and other bodily fluids pose a health hazard and need to be addressed safely. Crime scene clean up is not just about cleaning up blood. These scenes are prone to infectious biohazards and are dangerous. For your forensic cleaners in Sydney or Brisbane, make sure they are trained in handling blood, bodily fluids, and other types of bodily matter to ensure they are properly—and safely—cleaned.
When you are hiring crime scene cleaners, make sure they are trained to the highest standards for biohazard and forensic cleaning restoration through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certification (IICRC) and have completed all aspects of general services—Health & Safety, Carpet Restoration, Hard Floor Services, Flood Restoration, Drug House Restoration, Upholstery & Leather Cleaning. It is also very useful if they have completed the American BioRecovery Association (ABRA) approved Bio-Recovery course (Forensic Cleaning), which covers forensic cleaning, biohazard cleaning, sewage, disease management & infection control—all of which are situations they may encounter when performing a biohazard clean up. In addition, the NSW Police offer courses on forensic training and crime scene management, inclusive of legal issues, which will further qualify the team to handle anything they encounter at the crime scene.
