Who Cleans Up Crime Scenes?
There are many reasons to hire professional crime scene cleanup companies. Crime scenes, regardless of whether you have ties to the crime, are emotionally charged so this responsibility is best handled by a third party.
Homeowners and commercial property owners are responsible for making sure crime scene cleanup is done. If a property owner hires a professional biohazard cleaning team, their insurance company will likely cover payment.
Crime scenes contain biohazards such as blood, bodily fluids, and potentially infectious material.
A professional trauma/crime scene cleanup crew knows how a crime scene is cleaned and has the proper training, experience, and PPE to ensure these biohazards are properly removed and disposed of.
Professional trauma/crime scene cleanup teams can perform structural cleanups such as fingerprint dust residue removal, graffiti removal, stain removal, debris removal, odor control, and temporary protection and board-up.
HRS Restoration Services’ professional team has been cleaning up crime and death scenes for nearly forty years. They’re discrete, available 24/7, and work with law enforcement so you can return to a pristine home or business ASAP.

Why Proper Crime Scene Cleanup Is Important
We hope you never need to know how crime scene cleanup works.
However, if your home or business is at the scene of a crime, we’re here to make sure the cleanup process is done properly. Since crime scenes may contain blood, bodily fluids, or infectious biohazards like Hepatitis B & C and HIV, it is important to hire a professional with the experience and equipment to ensure their removal.
A crime scene may also include tear gas, smoke, graffiti, and damage to the exterior or interior of a home or business. A professional team that cleans up crime scenes should also be able to mitigate these structural concerns.
Finally, crime scene cleanup crews are able to work alongside law enforcement to ensure any physical evidence is preserved.
Prevention Of Health Problems
The presence of blood, bodily fluids, and other infectious pathogens at crime scenes is a serious matter. If the scene is not properly cleaned, you risk the chance of infection and the spread of disease.
A crime scene cleanup crew uses EPA and industry-grade cleaners to clean, disinfect and sanitize the area.
Mitigation Of Structural Damage
Beyond the health risks of crime scene cleanup, you may also be faced with property damage, odor control, and smoke and stain removal. A professional crime scene cleanup crew can address all of these issues.
Beyond cleaning supplies, a crime scene cleanup crew is equipped to repair structural damage, remove odors and other evidence of a crime using the latest technologies.
Avoid Interference With Investigation
In addition, a team that cleans up murder scenes knows how to preserve DNA and fingerprint evidence for law enforcement purposes.
They have the experience and training to understand what the police need to conduct their investigation.
