If you or someone in your home or business has suffered a medical emergency or trauma, you have a lot of unyielding issues to deal with. The last thing that you should have to worry about right now is the cleanup. Fortuitously, there are cleaning services that are devoted specifically to cleaning up the aftermath of a medical emergency or trauma. Here are some of the common questions that people often have in this situation.
Will the police clean up the trauma scene?
No. Once the police have completed their investigation and released the crime scene, it becomes the responsibility of the family or property owner to have it cleaned.
Who will pay for medical emergency and trauma cleanup?
If a suicide, homicide, crime scene or accidental death has occurred in your home; your homeowners insurance will likely cover the cost of trauma cleaning services.
Do I have to use the medical emergency and trauma cleaning service recommended by my insurance company?
No. You have the right to choose whichever cleaning service you prefer, and your homeowners insurance company cannot require you to use a particular company.
How soon will trauma cleaners come out to clean up the blood or trauma contamination scene?
Forensic Cleaners who specialise in cleaning up after crime scenes, medical emergencies and traumas will typically come out to the location quickly, within 24 hours.
Why should I call a trauma cleanup service instead of just cleaning it up myself?
If you have just experienced a medical emergency, violent crime, or other trauma, you are undergoing a lot of stress. Attempting to clean up the repercussion of that situation will place pointless emotional stress on you that you shouldn’t have to deal with. There is no need to go through that when there are people who are specially trained to deal with these situations for you.
Are there health hazards involved in cleaning up the scene myself?
Yes. When you attempt to clean up after a trauma or crime scene by yourself, you are exposing yourself to biohazard waste, including blood borne pathogens. For your own health and safety, it is best to leave the trauma cleanup to trained, experienced and knowledgeable technicians who have the proper safety equipment to handle the job.
Will it be safe to enter the scene after the team finishes the cleanup?
Yes. Melbourne Forensic Cleaning technicians want to return your home or business to its original condition and leave it just as it was before this trauma occurred. We will make sure that it not only looks clean, but is also sanitised and free from any odours.
If I can’t see any blood, does that mean that the site is clean and safe?
No. While removing visible evidence of a trauma is a start, there could be blood or other fluids that leak into fabrics, cracks and crevices in the area and surrounds. We will remove all visible and invisible traces of the trauma and sanitise the area to a safe and biohazard free zone.
Why should I choose a company that specialises in medical emergency and trauma cleanup?
