Using Advanced Equipment
We have access to a whole arsenal of advanced equipment to tackle different crime scene cleanup scenarios. This includes steam vapor machines with advanced modifications such as nano-crystallization for treating hard to reach areas.
These devices are so effective and safe to use that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has categorized them as completely chemical free disinfection equipment.
In addition, our technicians use equipment such as:
- Negative air machines (HEPA filtered)
- Foam applicators (for disinfectants and cleaners)
- Advanced infection control devices
Knowledge of Pathogens
Part of our crime scene cleanup technicians’ training includes education on different pathogens that may be present at different crime scenes. Understanding different pathogens not only helps us to stay safe, but also to select the most effective antimicrobial products that will remove them.
Using Appropriate Disinfectants
Any property can be successfully cleaned when the right disinfectants are paired with the right contamination and materials.
Our crime scene cleanup technicians utilize disinfectants that are registered as tuberculocides with the EPA.
Experts utilize tuberculocidal disinfectants because they’re stronger compared to ordinary disinfectant products. Moreover, they’re versatile and able to clean a variety of surfaces and contaminants.
Additionally, we utilize disinfectants that are capable of killing TB and non-enveloped viruses like parvovirus, rotavirus, norovirus, or poliovirus.
Using Disinfectants That Contain Surfactants
We often select disinfectants that contain a surfactant, which means the disinfectant doubles as a cleaner.
Another benefit of surfactants in a disinfectant is that there are no sticky residues over the surface after it’s cleaned and disinfected.
Disinfectants and the Problem of Unpleasant Scents
Many disinfectants are known for their unpleasant or strong scents. Our crime scene cleanup professionals keep note of this fact and select disinfectants that have a light scent or make use of odor dissipation technology.
When a disinfectant utilizes odor dissipation technology, it has a scent that is designed in such a way that it disappears quickly.
Crime scene cleanup is a complex task and effective results can only be achieved when performed by experienced professionals.
