According to a 2019 USA Today report, Louisiana leads the nation in number of murders for the 30th year in a row with an average of 12.4 murders for every 100,000 residents. Of which, 10.5 of them were committed with a firearm. With such a large number of murders occurring annually, the need for efficient crime scene cleanup is very important.
If you or a family member has been affected by a trauma or crime requiring specialized clean up in your home, you may be tempted to begin cleaning the trauma scene once the investigators have allowed you back into your space. While it’s understandable you’d like your space cleaned quickly so you can begin to heal, here are 4 reasons why you should have a crime scene cleanup company clean your home correctly:
1. Crime Scene Cleanup Technicians Are Highly Trained
After such a traumatic event occurring in your home, you want your home and your property treated professionally and cleaned effectively. Crime scene remediation technicians are well-trained in cleaning up blood, body tissues, and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). They can also clean up and remediate any pepper gas, tear gas, or fingerprint dust used during the police response.
2. Crime Scene Cleanup is Available 24 Hours a Day
Rather than trying to have friends or family clean up your areas as their time allows, oftentimes taking much longer than originally planned, a crime scene cleanup company can respond at any hour, day or night. They will tackle the problems quickly and correctly, with your safety being their first priority.
3. Crime Scene Cleanup Personnel Understand Tragedy
With expert experience and sensitivity, trauma remediation personnel understand tragedy and the delicate issues you are facing. Whether it’s a homicide, suicide, untimely death, or car accident, they will be thoughtful as they approach the cleanup, and help to prevent the spread of blood-borne or communicable diseases.
When you are dealing with tragedies such as murder or other crime clean up issues, you’re sure to feel overwhelmed and not sure where to begin. Be sure to contact a trauma remediation company to help you along the way to make the crime scene clean up easier.
4. Crime Scene Cleanup is Covered by Insurance
Your homeowner’s insurance or full coverage automobile insurance covers loss from a crime scene and all repairs associated with the cleanup. And Xtreme Cleaners handles the claims for the impacted family from beginning to end. Therefore, the family does not have to endure the tragedy again and again by explaining what happened.
