If blood is not cleanup up immediately, the blood will begin to spread and will be absorbed by porous materials, such as: concrete, asphalt, drywall, carpet, sub floor, grout, studs and floor joists. To help prevent unnecessary contamination and increased structural damage, it is imperative that you contact a company trained in blood cleanup as quickly as possible.

Any type of crime scene cleanup or blood cleanup involves a comprehensive and detailed procedure to detect, disinfect and completely remove all traces of bio-hazardous materials, to include but not limited to; blood, bodily fluids, tissue & bone matter, contaminated clothing and household goods, hypodermic needles, razor blades and other items that may pose a risk of injury or death. For your safety, and the safety of your family and friends, it is vital that all traces of these elements be removed from a scene, whether a crime has been committed or not.
