Call at any hour, any day for a crime scene cleanup consultation without obligation. Our services often exceed our competitors' efforts. Our services often cost less than our competitors' fees.
We offer thorough cleaning with safe chemicals. We believe no chemical, no tool, and no piece of equipment cleans well without an enthusiastic cleaner's efforts. Put another way, it's not the stuff of cleaning. It's the cleaners' attitude toward cleaning.
Our cleaners' attitude for crime scene cleanup has no equal when it comes to professionally rendering bloodborne pathogens safe. Biohazard cleanup has no match, no equal in New York, we believe. Give us a call and see for yourself.
Blood cleanup must follow a safe, patient, and planned approach. Because of bloodborne pathogens, germs, we must clean carefully.
A bloodborne pathogen resides in our blood following contamination bay a microorganism (or other bodily fluids).
Bloodborne Pathogens include the following:
OSHA administrates a bloodborne pathogen standard as a means to protect workers from Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and Human immunodefiency.
Besides blood, other potentially infectious body fluids include fluids contaminated by human blood. Even semen becomes infectious if contaminated by blood. Vaginal secretions with blood mixed in also become risky for contaminating anyone in close contact. We can see how unprotected sexual activities may contribut to the spread of bloodborne pathogens in New York
At least saliva, urine, feces, and vomit do not become infectious unless infected by blood. If they did we would have some serious worries.
Employees with a chance of contacting blood need bloodborne pathogen training. Such training may be found on the Internet or, as I recommend, can be taken at the American Red Cross. Crime scene cleanup technicians, as well as other employess, must have their bloodborne pathogen train renewed every year.
Bloodborne Pathogen Training:
Hepatitis B (HBV)
About 1.25 million US residents contracte HIV. Their symptoms include jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, and vomiting. They do not feel very well.
Hepatitis C (HCV)
In the US, our most common and cronic bloodborne disease is Hepatitis C.
Sometimes its symptoms include jaundice with fatigue and abdominal pain. Even loss of appetite with intermittent nausea and vomiting may follow.
Sometimes hepatitis C leads to chronic liver disease and death. Infected persons must live a clean lifestyle. Good food, adequate rest, and moderate exercise help.
Bloodborne pathogens enter the body in a various ways. These include contact with or mucous membranes located in the eyes, mouth, and nose. Even broken or cut skin may lead to innoculation by these viruses.
Everyone should use universal precautions designed to prevent contaminating others with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and other bloodborne pathogens.
Everyone should consider all blood and body fluids as potentially infectious for HIV, HBV and other bloodborne pathogens.
Protective garments, including gloves, face, and skin protection help shield workers from blood and other potentially infectious material.

Always wash hands or other skin surfaces thoroughly if contaminated by blood,
Always wash hands after removing gloves. Washing hands throughout daily activities helps protect agains other viruses and pathogenic microorganisms not mentioned.
Whichever New York hospital we arrive at birth, microorganisms soon begin to land on our skin. Once arrived, they migrate over our tiny body making their way between our tiny toes, into our mouths and noses. Within oure first hour of birth, 10 microorganisms per square inch gain a foothold on our tiny bodies. Within two days this number becomes 100,000 per square inch.
Without the microoscope, humanity lived with these tiny germs unnoticed.
Even now as readers consider these words, a distant generation from those first to invade our noses go unnoticed, moving in and moving out as we breath.
Likewise, at first our noses and neural olfactory nerves fail to distinuish our environmental fragrances. Most of these fragrances go unnoticed until a meaning attaches to them. This learning, at first, involves simple pain and pleasure cues. Hunger and pleasure will do for pain and pleasure.
We learn about fragrances as we learn about only about positive and negative reinforcers in our environment. When we become hungry, some fragrances come to mean food. Other fragrances remain absent until a meaning attaches to their presence, like the meaning of burnt wood's smoke leading to fire, cooked food.
Automatically, from near zero, we begin placing verbal symbols on more and more fragrances, odors. Our brains begin noting these new odors, catalouging each in a pain or pleasure schematic outlining neural pathways. Some fragrances take an instant to become meaningful. Others may take days or weeks for meaning to manifest.
We begin connecting the meaningful dots as biologial, social and cultural acts, events and situations arise. Pleasure and pain once reduced to neural synapses grow with verbal symbols resembling our environments rewards and punishments.
In New York's crime scene cleanup work, crime scene cleanup technicans soon become familiar with the death odor, too familiar. Sometimes they become so familiar with this odor it becomes harder to detect. Now they work with a disadvantage. It happens that male crime scene cleanup technicians, generally, have fewer neural olfactory nerves for detecting odors. As a result, female crime scene cleanup technicans remain more sensitive to the all important death cleanup odors.
Our noses' sensory nerves begin their work with similar shocks as as a few, objectionaable fragrances assult nerve endings. Usually "objectionable" fragrances, death's odors, include sulfur and uric acid odors.
For some crime scene cleanup technicians, horrific crime scenes permiated by death's odors become part of an overall scheme of things. They begin missing death's fragrances after many hours in crime scene cleanup environments. Besides thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and sealing, there's no way to ensure these offensive odors no longer remain.
Enter the unsuspecting noses. Finding a family or friend of violent crime scene death offers an opportunity to test the crime scene for its cleanup qualities. Both young eyes unfamiliar with the scene, and young (female) noses lead to the truth. Has the crime scene met its last test, the death odor recoginition test? and repute life's known fragrances for a moment. For many, the first moments associating these horrific odors with their loved one's violent death become part of their lives.
