When your home is the center of a crime scene, you may not know what to do. Because you may be in shock, it may be even harder for you know what steps to take. To help you through the process, we’ve answered a few questions below that you may be struggling with.
Who is responsible for the cleanup?
After these types of situations occur, the first thing on your mind may be getting things back in order. However, you may not be sure who should be doing the cleaning up. More often than the responsibility for cleanup falls to the owner of the property or to the friends and family of the victims.
When can cleanup start?
Although you may be eager to get started as soon as possible, you need to make sure you are cleared to do so. Do not try to clean up anything before the police arrive. The crime scene should remain untouched until the police have had a chance to collect any evidence. Wait for them to tell you that you can start cleaning.
Who can you call for help?
Because of OSHA and EPA regulations, there are certain processes that need to followed when you are working with biohazards, such as blood and other bodily fluids. For that reason, you should always choose to hire a professional cleaner that understands the processes necessary to thoroughly clean your home and meet all regulations.
