Don't Do It Yourself - Call the Pros!

Crime scenes can be complex and messy. The proper way to process a crime scene must be done strategically in order to preserve evidence. Once police officials have completely processed a crime scene, the need to hire a professional trauma and crime scene cleanup team would be recommended to properly ensure cleaning and restoring of the area. With health risks associated with blood or toxic particles, Uptown area SERVPRO professionals can effectively remove these elements efficiently.

Uptown business owners and residents, SERVPRO of Ravenswood teams have the expertise, resources and training to safely cleanup crime scenes. Crime scenes can completely alter your space, which may leave you feeling hopeless. Plus, those related to trauma can leave behind many dangerous particles and chemicals that you will want to cleanup in the fastest and best way possible. Our cleanup teams are certified and knowledgeable in OSHA and EPA guidelines. This means they have the ability to restore an unsafe and contaminated environment, allowing you to return home or to your business.

Some common dangers of crime scenes related to trauma include the exposure to:

  • Bloodborne pathogens
  • Toxic chemicals
  • Residues as a result of crime scene chemicals

Leaving these elements behind can greatly increase the chance for more contamination as well as negatively impact your well-being. SERVPRO of Ravenswood’s cleanup services, especially those in the Uptown area, work in the way to ensure that your space is returned to normal following any type of crime scene. Some of the following are typical services that an Uptown crime scene cleanup team may provide: 

  • Blood, fluids and other tissue remnants
  • Tear gas
  • Pepper spray
  • Fingerprint powder
  • Fire or water damage

Residues left behind by a team of investigators can be toxic if not cleaned up properly. Police officers may dust areas for fingerprints to thoroughly conduct an investigation of the area. Remnants of fingerprint powder and other evidence-gathering chemicals can be harmful to you and your surroundings. If there were injuries or casualties, there may have been blood or fluid spillage. Exposure to blood and bodily fluids can increase your chances of contracting viruses and disease. Say that police seized a lab that was known for producing illegal drugs such as methamphetamine aka meth. These labs are saturated in harmful chemicals whether through touch or inhalation. All of these different scenarios are ones that the professionals at SERVPRO can provide to Uptown residents and businesses, when searching for cleanup service who carry the experience in handling such cases. We will work to sanitize and deodorize the environment, returning it to normal as much as possible.

Crime scenes, especially those involving trauma, can leave behind negative experiences. However, it does not mean that there is no hope in restoring the space back to its original standing. If you are in need of cleanup from a team that experienced and knowledgeable, you should contact SERVPRO of Ravenswood who services the Uptown area; 773-878-5200.
