Nobody deserves to witness a crime that leads to death or severe injuries, no matter who they are, where they live, or where they come from. It’s painful; it’s traumatic; it’s almost impossible to get through the situation unaffected. The minute you experience it, you want to forget it ever happened, but this isn’t possible. If you’re scared and don’t know what to do, or you want to be prepared for the future, we hope the following information will help, particularly when it comes to crime scene cleanup. If you have any questions or need more information/advice, don’t be afraid to call ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration at (610) 524-8003.
Call the Police
The first task you need to do after experiencing a crime that lead to death or severe injuries in your home is call the police. No matter how much you might want to avoid it, and no matter how badly you might want to sweep the situation under the rug and move on without a second thought, you need to immediately call the police. The longer you take, the harder it will be to get justice for the victim.
Stay Away from the Crime Scene
It might be tempting to crawl around the crime scene and try to clean up or find something that will implicate the criminal involved, but this is a terrible idea. You’ll make it harder for justice to be served, particularly if you wipe away important fingerprints, and you might expose yourself or your loved ones to hazardous materials.
Call in Professional Biohazard Cleanup Experts to Help
Calling a regular cleaning service that specializes in vacuuming carpets or wiping windows isn’t the best idea in traumatic situations. The company won’t have the equipment or know-how necessary for cleaning up a crime scene. Cleaning up the scene yourself is also a bad idea because of possible harm to your mental and/or physical health. Instead, call a company that specializes in cleaning up hazardous areas. You’ll get better results with a crime scene cleanup company like us.
