Traumatic events can lead to the spread of diseases and bacteria and pose a threat to others. If you’ve experienced an accident, unattended death, or other trauma on your Olathe, KS, property, contact the trauma scene cleanup professionals at ServiceMaster DSI. We’ll ensure the affected area is properly cleaned to prevent the spread of contaminants.
Let’s look at how our trauma scene cleanup technicians clean bodily fluids from different surfaces of a trauma scene.
Cleaning Bodily Fluids from Smooth Surfaces
Our priority is preventing contaminants from spreading to other areas. To remove excess fluids from smooth surfaces, we use fresh paper towels to soak up the excess.
Wiping up excess fluids isn’t enough to clean the area; we also need to disinfect. Our trauma scene cleanup technicians are trained in choosing the right cleaning solutions depending on the type of fluids left behind. For example, we wouldn’t use the same cleaning solutions on vomit as we would on blood.
Also, we don’t just use cleaning solutions to wipe away fluids. For maximum effect, we allow for a dwell time, during which the solution sits on the affected area to thoroughly disinfect it. Once the dwell time has passed, our trauma scene cleanup technicians wipe down the area.
Any materials we use to clean a trauma scene need to be properly disposed of to prevent contamination. We follow all local requirements for biohazard disposal. We discard waste items in leak-proof plastic bags that are completely sealed to prevent contamination and the bags are properly disposed of.
Tackling Fluids on Rugs/Carpets
We are also able to treat bodily fluids on carpets or rugs by taking the following steps:
- First, when tackling any type of trauma scene, our trauma scene cleanup technicians wear protective clothing and gear to keep themselves safe
- Next, the affected area is covered using paper towels to soak up excess fluids
- Finally, we use a specialized detergent disinfectant and steam cleaning to thoroughly disinfect and clean the area
