What is trauma cleanup?
You might be sitting there on the couch watching criminal minds or another favorite show and think, ‘What happens to all the blood spots after they are done?’ or ‘I feel sorry for whoever has to clean up that mess’ and you would be right in saying that, because someone does have to clean that. This is exactly what trauma clean-up is. It is a highly trained team that deals with cleaning, sanitizing and restoring a home or business to its state prior to a trauma incident. Trauma incidents can encompass many different events including suicide, homicide, blood spills, undiscovered death, tear gas and any other incident exposing an area to harmful chemicals or bodily fluids.
