Death and Trauma Scene Cleaning throughout The Borders

When a death or traumatic event happens unexpectedly, most property owners lack the knowledge and equipment to safely and permanently clean up and decontaminate the scene.

Sometimes when violence has been involved there are unfamiliar difficulties in cleaning up an area that everyday cleaning services will not be trained to deal with.

Biohazard Remediation

Trauma scenes frequently contain biologically infectious waste including blood and body fluids, viral pathogens such as HIV or Hepatitis B, bacterial pathogens or even hazardous chemicals.

Clean-up should not be  carried by the average local house clearance firm.

Border Extreme Clearance’s team of trauma and crime scene cleaning specialists are on call 24 hours day 7 days a week providing rapid response to these difficult and traumatic situations.

Most house clearance and cleaning companies will not approach a scene that is contaminated with a significant amount of blood or body fluids. For the employees of a typical company, this situation is outside the scope of their training as material that has to be removed is classified as hazardous waste.

If a house clearance company agrees to clean the scene, ask for insurance details, training details, references from similar clean-up jobs. Cleaning a scene exposed to blood and bodily fluids, human waste matter, bird faeces, mould and other biohazards and toxins is a service that many clearing companies could NOT accomplish satisfactorily.

Death and Crime Scene Cleanup in Carlisle, Cumbria from Border Extreme Cleaning

Crime and Death Scene Cleaning Cases

Whether it is a fatal accident in Carlisle , a suicide or crime scene in Dumfries, or an unattended death in Penrith , each of these situations are extremely difficult to the individuals, families and friends involved. The last thing on their mind is the potential hazardous bodily fluids and airborne bacteria that could be present.

It is a widespread perception that the emergency services will organise and complete the safe clean-up of a crime scene or trauma once they have provided their individual services. However, this is inaccurate and very untrue! The cleaning and disinfection of the scene is left to the landlord or owner of the property, land or vehicle to organise.

There are strict rules surrounding the cleaning of crime and trauma scenes once the law enforcement aspects have been dealt with and police officers have allowed access back to the scene. This is due to the nature and type of hazardous bodily fluids that are present and the possible risk to health. Viruses such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV can be transferred via bodily fluids. Therefore, the treatment of contaminated areas is essential to prevent the spread of infection. Border Extreme Cleaning follow these strict rules.

In addition to fatal accidents, suicides, crime scenes and undiscovered deaths, we also can clean up blood, body fluids, urine, faeces and vomit from public areas, workplaces including clubs, pubs and bars. We also sanitise police vehicles, taxi cabs and public transport vehicles in Cumbria and Dumfries & Galloway.
