What does a crime scene cleaner do?

What is the role of a Crime Scene Cleaner?

The role of a crime scene cleaning technician is to sanitise scenes affected by blood, biological fluids and other biological hazards. The main objective is to remove any blood-born pathogens, returning the scene to a clean and odour free state. As part of a crime scene cleanup, any affected possessions and contents deemed non-restorable will be disposed of. This may include removing carpet, tiles, floor boards and walls depending on the level of contamination. 


Who needs the services of a Crime Scene Cleaning company?

Crime scene cleaning companies generally perform a range of forensic cleaning services that involve the clean up and decontamination of scenes affected by:

  • Death & Suicides
  • Blood & Trauma
  • Urine & Faeces
  • Needle & Syringe Removal
  • Infectious Disease Control
  • Gross Filth & Dilapidated Property Cleaning
  • Cat, Possum & Dog Urine
  • Mice & Rat Infestations
  • Rotten Food (Fridges & Freezers)
  • Meth Lab Decontamination
  • Sewage Leaks


Who cleans up a Crime Scene?

If is often the belief that police clean up after the scene of a crime. This unfortunately is not the case, instead this is left up to the property owner or occupier to arrange. This is often a difficult time for those involved without adding on the difficult task of cleaning up a scene contaminated with large amounts of blood, bodily fluids & fingerprint dust.
