Blood Cleanup

Experienced Blood Cleanup Professionals

The blood cleanup professionals at Crime Scene Clean-Up® are licensed experts in blood cleaning and biohazard remediation resulting from death, accidents or communicable disease outbreaks. We tackle all situations with the same care and attention to detail to ensure the health and safety of you and your loved ones.

Is Blood Cleanup Dangerous?

Yes, blood stains and spills absolutely can be. Did you know that there are 400 million people worldwide living with chronic hepatitis B, and most people do not even know they have been infected? Blood transmits diseases and you can’t always say with 100% certainty if a relative, a friend, a house guest or a coworker is not infected with a communicable disease. Treat all blood or bodily fluid as if it is potentially infectious material.

Risks & Training Associated with Cleaning Blood

Biohazard situations involving blood and bodily fluids present major health, safety, and compliance challenges. OSHA regulations state that, before an employee can safely clean up blood or other potentially infectious materials, he or she must undergo:

 

  • Yearly bloodborne pathogen training
  • Have access to personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Be given appropriate instruction prior to use of PPE
  • Be vaccinated for Hepatitis B
  • Have a method to remove, package, and properly store biohazardous waste in labeled containers
  • Know the locations of approved sites to properly dispose of biohazardous material

Furthermore, the blood cleanup company must have a bloodborne pathogen exposure control plan and maintain written records of any incidents.

Exposure to blood spills or other potentially infectious materials puts blood cleanup professionals at risk for infections from pathogens like:

  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • MRSA
  • Measles virus

Government agencies can also levy hefty fines on businesses for improper blood spill cleanup or illegal disposal of biohazardous materials. This is why it is critical that blood spills from a trauma, death or disease outbreak be remediated by highly trained, licensed, and experienced professionals.

How Do We Clean Blood Spills?

Due to the high exposure risk to bloodborne pathogens, blood cleanup is a specialty service that requires proper training, equipment, certification, and licensing. Proper blood cleanup requires a 10-step remediation process and consists of using heavy duty cleaning agents formulated to disinfect and protect the health and safety of our customers and our crews. We adhere to the highest standards in biohazard remediation and stand by our work with a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.

Our systematic cleaning process allows us to contain the affected areas to prevent cross-contamination, remove all traces of blood and biological materials, disinfect and deodorize, and test to confirm that the affected areas are free of bloodborne pathogens and other bacteria. We are thorough in this process because we recognize the importance of health and safety for you and your family.

Cleaning Blood Off of Clothes and Other Porous Materials

Removing blood stains is no easy task, but there are a few steps you can take. Consider the type of fabric you are dealing with and the size of the blood stain. Often a quick rinse or soak with cold water will remove the stain before it sets in. If blood has set for too long you may have to use an enzymatic cleaner.

Before attempting blood clean-up yourself, recognize that the job can be dangerous and legally risky, due to the hazards of bloodborne pathogens. Blood stains are not easily removed or disinfected from most structural surfaces—if you’ve ever tried to get it out of clothing, you can attest to its staining and staying power. Porous materials are almost always disposed of because of the inability to safely and completely disinfect the blood from permeable materials. Don’t be fooled into thinking bleach will remove and kill all germs resulting from blood stains and spills.
