When blood spills occur in small amounts, like a cut finger or a scraped knuckle, we don’t really consider any cleanup from the incident to be “blood cleanup” it is just a minor mess that we can handle without a second thought. However, when a significant amount of blood is lost, in a major household accident or industrial accident, it is no longer just a little thing or a minor mess to be cleaned up.
There are a couple of reasons for this. First, in this case it is not normally our own blood we are cleaning up, but someone elses as that person is most likely in the emergency room or hospital. Beacuse of the fact the blood in not your own, there are concerns over potential for bio-hazardous contamination from blood borne pathogens or other illnesses that the cleaner could be exposed to if the proper precautions are not taken. Second, usually a major blood spill involves an area that is no longer small and contained but can encompass the walls, the floor, furniture or other items. In this case, there are special methods for removing blood from more pourous materials or determining if an item is salvagable (meaning the blood can be safely removed completely so the item is entirely clean and safe again). There is also a certain amount of knowledge and expertise involved in knowing where blood may seep into and how to get to it all.
These issues usually mean that it is better to let a professional service who is trained in crime scene cleanup and blood cleanup handle the job. The professionals from a crime scene cleanup company such as A.C.T. Remediation Services have the knowledge, background and equipment to clean the premises safely, efficiently and effectively. This way you will know it is done right and safely. You don’t want to take chances with this type of spill.
