Trauma, Accident and Crime Scene Cleanup
We are here for you.
Biohazardous Materials Cleanup
Biohazardous materials can include chemicals, viruses and bacteria, blood-borne or other types of pathogens, as well as bodily fluids and soiled personal items. Special precautions must be taken with biohazardous materials during the entire cleanup process, including transporting it from the site and proper disposal.
Biohazards can cause serious health problems for anyone coming in contact with them, which is why cleanup should always be conducted by certified, trained professionals. Proper cleanup involves special equipment and chemicals, protective safety wear and skilled techniques by trained and licensed pros.
You should never attempt to clean up a trauma or accident site on your own, as exposure to any biohazardous substance or environment is extremely dangerous.
Unattended Death or Suicide
Loss of a loved one is painful and something for which no one is ever truly prepared to experience. Unexpected loss can be even more devastating. Every 911 KDS technician is taught to always remember the emotional trauma that accompanies a physical one.
Going through the nightmare of losing a loved one is hard enough. It’s even worse when no one was there at the time of death. These are the times you need compassion and understanding the most.
If you’ve lost a loved one, we feel your pain. Having lost family members ourselves, we understand better than most what you’re going through. We’ll do all we can to help and best serve you during your time of deep emotional upset.
Crime Scene Cleanup/Blood and Bodily Fluids Cleanup
Crime scene cleanup and blood and bodily fluids cleanup are terms often used interchangeably, since crime scenes will often have blood and other bodily fluids that much be cleaned up and properly disposed.
Crime scene cleanup can only begin once the police have finished their investigation and released the scene. Proper equipment and safety gear must be used as precautions against exposure to any dangerous or infectious substances.
This is why it’s imperative to use a professional crew like 911 Knoxville Decon Services. We’re trained and highly skilled in the delicate techniques of handling and cleaning up hazardous substances.
When someone’s personal vehicle is involved in an accident, a crime, a suicide or some other tragic event, the cleanup operation can be quite challenging. The same is true when the vehicle is an ambulance or police cruiser, as they must be frequently decontaminated. Buses, RVs and commercial trucks can also be involved in circumstances that require professional cleanup operations.
Vehicle cleanup carries the same risks as biohazardous cleanups in a house or commercial facility, but are even more difficult and should never be attempted by anyone but trained, licensed professionals.
OSHA Compliance Cleanup
OSHA stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Until 1970, there were no standard regulations for safety in the workplace or protection against potential health hazards. Passing the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 ensures that working conditions are always safe and healthful. 911 Knoxville Decon Services maintains 100% OSHA compliance in every cleanup operation.
