Trauma cleanup is a difficult task. Between the risks involved and the highly technical nature of trauma cleanup, it’s important to appoint an experienced firm, such as ServiceMaster DSI in Prairie Village, KS.
Not every trauma cleanup scenario is the same and our experienced technicians are trained to identify the nuances of individual scenes and determine the best way to clean the area.
Experienced technicians are able to select the right cleaning solutions, appropriate disinfectants, most effective cleaning procedures, and wear required personal protective equipment. Let’s go through all the details in the following sections.
Choosing the Most Effective Cleaning Solution
In certain trauma scenarios where bodily fluids are involved, it can be difficult to identify which materials have been contaminated, especially if the materials are dark or patterned.
To ensure all bodily fluids are removed, experts utilize their experience to select the right cleaning solution that will make it easier to locate and clean hidden fluids.
For example, to identify blood, experts use hydrogen peroxide, which foams when it comes into contact with blood, making it easy to identify and clean.
Use of Industrial Grade Disinfectants
Trained trauma scene cleanup professionals ensure the disinfectants they use are strong enough to kill any pathogens that may be present, such as mycobacterium tuberculosis or TB.
TB in particular is very difficult to kill in comparison to other fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Not properly disinfecting a trauma scene can result in a serious outbreak. That’s why our experts only use EPA approved disinfectants.
Odors can occur in a variety of trauma scenarios, necessitating odor removal. First, experts will remove any items emitting an odor from the scene and treat them to remove odors. Next, they clean the area, including the HVAC system to ensure odors are completely eradicated from your home.
Use of Personal Protective Equipment
The risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens is ever present at trauma scenes. To protect themselves, experts utilize industrial grade personal protective equipment (PPE).
A few of the important PPE trauma cleanup experts wear include:
- Full-face respirators that contain pathogen filters
- Biohazard suits
- Heavy-duty rubber boots
- Chemical resistant gloves
