What exactly is forensic cleaning? 

The process of cleaning and sanitising a property after a traumatic incident is known as forensic cleaning, also known as crime scene cleaning, biohazard cleaning or trauma cleaning. Homicides and suicides, as well as hoarding and unattended deaths, are examples of such incidents. The goal of forensic cleaning is to remove all traces of biological and chemical contaminants from the affected area and to ensure that the property is safe to occupy.  

Further examples of why you may need forensic cleaning include: 

  • Trauma cleaning and crime scene cleaning: when investigating robberies, break and enters, and assaults, chemical techniques, such as fingerprint powder, are used to collect evidence and will need to be properly cleaned.   
  • Crime scene cleaning including scenes of homicide and suicide: scenes involving casualties resulting from violent crime and scenes of suicide.  
  • Trauma cleaning due to accidental deaths: death due to accidents in private or business premises, or terminal illness.  
  • Crime scenes or assaults in public areas: contamination of streets and footpaths by blood because of assaults.  
  • Trauma cleaning involving industrial or commercial accidents: death or loss of limbs by machinery.  
  • Biohazard cleaning of motor vehicles: fatal collisions where fluids, decomposition odours and blood could be present.  
  • Forensic and biohazard cleaning of police correctional facility centres: airborne pathogens, urine, blood, and faeces.  
  • Sharps: needles and other tools that require biohazard cleaning and disposal.  
  • Decontamination of odours. 

There are numerous incidents that will require professional forensic cleaning, otherwise known as crime scene cleaning, trauma cleaning and biohazard cleaning. Each term used involves an extensive cleaning process with trained and accredited technicians.
