Property managers know that just about everything that occurs on their properties, including maintenance issues and property damage, is legally their responsibility. If you own or manage a property in which a violent crime has taken place, reacting to the situation is your responsibility as well.
Restoring a Crime Scene on Your Property
The scene of a violent crime generally contains biohazard materials such as blood, tissues, and other bodily fluids that can easily spread disease and infection among your tenants. The first thing you should do is talk to your tenants about what happened and if any of them are in danger from the biohazard materials at the scene, it is your responsibility to relocate them to a safe place.
Once your tenants have been taken care of, you should immediately turn your attention to containing the biological threat of the scene and beginning the crime scene cleaning process. Because you are legally responsible for restoring a crime scene to a safe, liveable condition, you should call trusted professional crime scene cleaners to handle the restoration.
Why Professional Crime Scene Cleaners are Required
Professional crime scene technicians have the right cleaning equipment, products, and experience to handle crime scene clean up for even the most intense scenes. Crime scene clean-up services involve the containment of the scene followed by the removal of all biohazard materials, decontamination of the scene, and deodorisation to remove offensive odours. After the property is biologically remediated, your tenants will be safe to return with no physical biological and nasty evidence left of the violent crime that has occurred.
Crime Scene Clean Up technicians at Crime Scene Clean Australia offer professional crime scene cleaning and remediation to remove all biological hazards including fingerprint dust, blood, bodily fluid and bacteria resulting from a death, suicide, traumatic event or assault.
