Most people don’t realize that any crime scene can be hazardous. Even if the victim was a friend or family member, it does not mean there are no dangers present. There are dozens of pathogens and diseases that can be transmitted through blood and bodily fluids during the crime scene cleanup process. Some of these, do not show any signs or symptoms for years so the host carrier may not have even known they were infected. It is imperative that crime scene cleanup is performed by professionals to make sure the scene is cleaned and disinfected thoroughly to prevent exposure to future occupants. Did you know diseases like Hepatitis can live outside the body for weeks and still be contagious? This is even if the blood was wiped away and improper disinfection techniques were used. Don’t Take Chances!
