It only takes a moment to change someone’s life forever

It only takes a moment to change someone’s life, whether it is the permanency of death, or an event that that will haunt them the rest of their lives.  A simple moment of chaos, followed by the cacophony of sirens, flashing lights, and fire or police responders is a brief moment in the whole event.  What remains is the aftermath of the place where a crime was committed.  Just a short time before, it may have been a home, a car, a business, but now the signs that a traumatic event has taken place is a bitter reminder that someone’s life has changed forever.

Real life isn’t like the movies

When tragedy strikes, many of us haven’t considered what happens next.  Movies and television are thankfully the only window people have witnessed the scene of a violent crime or even a suicide.  For those who have had an up close and personal moment that has changed their lives, as well as forever marring the place it has happened, they know full-well that no one is there to call “Cut!” There are no craft services trucks, actors’ trailers, or crew to come in and reset everything for the next take.

Reality hits hard for those who are left behind to pick up the pieces.  The scene of a violent crime or suicide is a landscape of confusion.  From broken glass to blood, biohazardous waste and body fluid to hazardous materials, you can expect nearly anything to be a part of the crime scene.  But life does go on, and just because something terrible has happened in a crime, we can’t simply cordon off the area forever and ever and forget it ever happened.  Homes will be reoccupied.  Workplaces will continue on.  The city continues to carry on, nearly indifferent to what has happened in this spectacle of human drama.  And you might find yourself having to pick up the pieces and carry on with it.  The sirens will fade away, the emergency lights will be replaced with the dawn of a new day, and there is only one thing to do next: move forward.

The experience and tools you need

Most regular people aren’t equipped with the right training, tools, or gear to safely clean this scene.  Due to potentially harmful pathogens in blood or body fluid, the presence of harmful materials, caustic solvents, and the mess that remains you need to hire a professional crime scene cleanup team in New York.  Taking on this task is potentially dangerous, not only physically but maybe even emotionally.  You may have been close to the victim, or a victim of the crime yourself by association, and the mental trauma you would be subjecting yourself to is not healthy.

Industrial cleaners specifically designed for blood, fluid, and tissue contamination requires adequate training.  Household cleaners are not powerful enough or effective enough in many cases to do the job right.  Cleaners such as bleach could not only damage the surfaces you are trying to clean, but potentially threaten your health and safety if used incorrectly.  Burns, inhalation danger, and neurological damage are serious, and best to be avoided entirely.
