Blood Clean-up Service for Major Trauma and Accident Blood Spills
We are often asked, “When should we call Aftermath in a blood spill situation?” We have a standard rule of thumb we offer: if it’s smaller than a plate, a person can clean it themselves if they are wearing proper protective equipment and using legally approved disposal methods.
If it’s in a commercial or industrial setting, there are additional employee protection guidelines which require the person to have been trained in bloodborne pathogens, safety equipment (PPE) and hazardous communications protocols. Cordon off the area and restrict it from access until all materials have been removed or cleaned and fully sanitized.
If it’s bigger than a plate, call Aftermath.
We are typically called in for major blood spills and trauma situations such as industrial accidents, homicide/suicide, active shooter (mass trauma), medical situations such as gastrointestinal bleeding, and transportation accidents. All we do is blood and biohazard. Unlike a typical general purpose cleaning company or carpet cleaning company, we approach biohazard remediation with a full scientific process to contain, decontaminate and remediate fully all potential bloodborne pathogens and visible blood stains from homes and property. It’s the first step in helping to restore a home to normalcy, removing traumatic evidence and eradicating future damage from untreated bio.
Sorry, We Don’t Clean Blood Out of Carpets
Contrary to popular belief, you can’t actually “clean” blood from carpet or other porous materials – at least not to a level that we would consider sanitized. In fact, many standard carpet cleaning companies will not clean blood because of the potential contamination of their equipment and cross contamination to other homes.
We will remove blood spills via a combination of meticulous cleaning, structural remediation, biohazard removal (we’ll cut away affected carpet and flooring and remove them via legal medical waste transportation), and surface sanitization of affected and adjacent areas. When we finish, the cleaned areas are tested for 100% sanitization levels to ensure no bio is left to cause damage or odor.
