Beyond the Police Tape: How a Crime Scene Cleanup Works

Have you ever watched CSI: Miami?

The show follows Crime Scene Investigator Lt. Horatio “H” Caine as he attempts to solve grisly murders in the Miami area by using various traces of physical evidence.

Aside from a proclivity for pithy lines, Horatio is fond of removing his expensive sunglasses before locking up baddies for their unspeakable misdemeanours.

However, away from the razzle-dazzle of the small screen and the Sunshine State, the reality of a crime scene, particularly for property owners, is decidedly unglamorous.

It’s difficult to comprehend, but in the aftermath of a crime or trauma, and to prevent airborne bacteria presenting a health risk, it’s actually left to the owner of the property to arrange the cleaning and disinfection of any debris and hazardous bodily fluids.

Understandably, for those affected by these types of incidents, reaching for their rubber gloves, mop and bucket, and cleaning products, will be the last thing on their mind – but this is where we come in.
