5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Crime Scene Cleaning Companies

5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Crime Scene Cleaning Companies
  • 1. Primarily Small, Locally Owned Enterprises
    Despite being affiliated with well-known franchise brands, most crime scene cleaning companies are small, locally owned businesses. Franchises operate independently, emphasizing the local ownership and community-oriented nature of their operations. This local ownership allows for personalized, attentive service tailored to the needs of each community.

  • 2. Specialists in Handling the Unthinkable
    Crime scene cleaners tackle the jobs no one else dares to—removing blood, bodily fluids, and other biohazards that carry serious health risks. Their work goes beyond mere cleaning; it involves meticulous biohazard remediation. Technicians are extensively trained and certified, using personal protective equipment (PPE) and specialized equipment to safely eliminate biohazards and odors, ensuring a thorough and professional cleanup.

  • 3. Driven by Personal Experiences
    Many who enter the biohazard cleaning industry are motivated by personal tragedies, such as experiencing the loss of a loved one through violent means. This unique perspective fosters a deep understanding and empathy towards others undergoing similar distressing situations. It's not uncommon for individuals with backgrounds in law enforcement, or who have faced traumatic events themselves, to seek out this line of work as a way to offer support and assistance to others in their community.

  • 4. A Wide Range of Clients
    Contrary to the misconception that these companies are extensions of law enforcement, crime scene cleaning services are independently operated businesses catering to a diverse clientele. This includes not only working closely with law enforcement and first responders, but also serving individuals, families, and businesses in need of their specialized cleaning services.

  • 5. Offering More Than Just Crime Scene Cleanup
