If the popularity of television shows such as CSI and NCIS are any indication, crime scenes are pretty fascinating to the general public. Investigators get to do interesting stuff like collect evidence, take photos of the scene, and try to piece together the events of horrific crimes to solve the case.
But what happens after evidence is gathered, detectives are back at the lab, and life as we know it has to go on? Someone has to clean that up, and detectives working the case have more important things to do. Still, crime scene cleanup requires more than your standard housekeeping service. “Training is exhausting due to the fact we must be aware of all of our surroundings when walking into as many homes as we do,” says James Michel, President of CrimeSceneCleanup.com.
