Our trauma cleanup professionals at ServiceMaster DSI of Olathe, KS, have treated a variety of different cleanup scenarios and are highly trained. Whatever unique challenges your trauma cleanup situation may present, we’re prepared.
Let’s explore some of the unique challenges that trauma cleanup presents and how we overcome them to provide effective cleaning.
Decomposition and Strong Odors
Strong odors are a natural by-product of decomposition. These odors can be absorbed by the walls and other items in your home, causing the smell to linger long after the body is removed. Decontaminating everything and removing lingering odors becomes a challenge that we combat with scrubbers, HEPA filters, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines for the complete removal of odors from your home.
Trauma cleaning often involves cleaning up tissues, fluids, blood, and other biohazardous materials. These materials can spread infection and disease, making disinfection a critical part of cleaning. To effectively clean up biohazardous materials, we use specialized cleaning equipment, disinfectants, and solutions to make sure the area is safe again. We identify all spots, shards, or splatter points to ensure everything is decontaminated.
If left unattended for a long time, some body tissues can harden, making them difficult to remove. If that’s the case, we utilize enzyme cleaners to soften tissues enough to remove them.
Danger and Contamination
Because of the dangers involved in trauma cleanup, it’s critical to hire professionals. Improper cleaning or disposal can result in serious health issues or even contamination within a community. Our professionals are trained to keep themselves and the community safe during cleanup.
To protect themselves, our technicians use personal protective equipment (PPE) that is specially made to prevent contact with biohazardous materials. All of our technicians are also trained in local regulations for handling and disposing of biohazardous materials. This prevents the materials from coming into contact with others or getting into the ground water.
