Crime Scene Cleaning Equipment

It is very important to be suited up before going to the scene. A crime scene may pose many dangers (spread of diseases like Hepatitis, HIV)

This is the reason why a professional needs to have the following.

1. Personal protective gear - a non-porous, one-time-use suit, gloves, filtered respirators and chemical-spill boots
2. Biohazard waste containers - 55-gallon heavy duty bags and sealed, hard-plastic containers
3. Traditional cleaning supplies - Mops, buckets, spray bottles, sponges, brushes, etc.
4. Hard-core cleaning supplies - Can include:
• Ozone machine (to remove odors)
• Foggers (to thicken a cleaning chemical so it can get all the way into tight places like air ducts, usually for odor removal)
• Hospital-grade disinfectants (bleach, hydrogen peroxide)
• Industrial-strength deodorizers
• Enzyme solvent (to kill bacteria and viruses and liquify dried blood)
• No-touch cleaning system (to clean blood-coated surfaces from a safe distance -- includes heavy-duty sprayer, long scrubbing brush, wet vacuum)
• Putty knives (to scrape up brain matter, which dries into a cement-like consistency)
• Razor blades (to cut out portions of carpet)
• Shovels (in about two hours, large amounts of blood coagulate into a Jell-O-like goo that can be shoveled into bags)
• Truck-mounted steam-injection machine (to melt dried brain matter that cleaners can't remove with putty knives)
• Chemical treatment tank (to disinfect and store matter sucked up by vacuum systems)
5. Carpentry/restoration tools - sledgehammers, saws, spackle, paint brushes
6. Ladders
7. Camera (to take before-and-after shots for insurance purposes)
8. Van or truck for transporting all of this stuff (and hauling waste to disposal site after clean-up)
