Why trauma cleanup is really not a DIY job
Biocleaning professionals have the training and experience to handle all the factors above safely and thoroughly. We clean up and sanitize the trauma scene, removing any potential dangerous bloodborne pathogens. This ensures the area has no traces of contamination and is returned to a biologically safe condition. As specialized cleaners, we respond to all types of scenes, including hoarding situations, homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, and accidents.
This is not a job suited for everyone. Because of the nature of the work, a cleaning technician undergoes extensive training to understand the dangers of bloodborne pathogens and exposure, to gain the skills necessary to clean them, and to know how to dispose of contaminated items safely. Becoming skilled is a prolonged process that requires experience and years of commitment.
On top of the grueling nature of the work, biohazard cleaners also must be empathetic and compassionate. They encounter a wide range of tragic circumstances where they are providing support and comfort to the families or co-workers who are going through a terrible situation. They also often become advocates for helping deal with insurance claims.

The risk exposure for crime scene cleaners
At trauma scenes where individuals have been injured or worse there is a danger of blood and other fluids carrying infectious diseases and pathogens such as HIV. Not only does the location need to be properly cleaned up, but it also needs to be sanitized to ensure you have a safe environment going forward.
This is one of the most serious issues overlooked when dealing with biohazard remediation. Often individuals prefer clean up the scene themselves completely unaware of the risks and dangers involved. But doing it yourself could put you, your family, or your employees at risk. If the cost of specialized cleaning and sanitizing is a concern, we recommend you check with your insurance agent to see if you are covered. Depending on the nature of the situation, the use of a professional biohazard cleaning service may be covered by property or vehicle insurance.
Even if you aren't covered by insurance, a specialized cleaner is really the safest and best way to handle cleaning up the scene. We use personal protective equipment including breathing gear, suits, gloves, facial protection, and footwear. Each technician at Mayken™ Hazmat has extensive training and follows safety protocols to ensure that not only are we protected while doing the crime scene cleanup, but also that all associated dangers are eradicated from the scene to ensure your protection going forward.
Illicit drugs complicate crime scene cleanup
In situations like break and enters and vehicle break-ins the perpetrators are often involved in criminal activity due to drug use. They break into buildings or vehicles looking for a “safe space” to get high before moving onto their next victims. Once these individuals enter a building or vehicle, they often leave drug residue from earlier use or in many cases drug paraphernalia such as:
- used needles
- sharp blades
- other items like pipes, spoons, chemicals, etc.
Finding and disposing of these items is a highly risky venture for any individual. The potential remaining drug residue can create an even bigger risk after the fact.
Mayken™ uses specific protocols developed through years of experience to search for drug paraphernalia systematically and thoroughly. We also use specialized testing equipment to detect potential contaminants and dangerous substances that need to be removed to restore your environment.
Importance of disinfecting a trauma scene
Our sanitization procedures neutralize any blood or airborne diseases left behind by the individuals and ensure that any harmful drug residue is also removed. We not only clean up the complications left behind at a trauma scene, we also provide complete sanitization to protect you, your family, and your staff going forward.
