Our Trauma Cleaning Promise

As well as cleaning the obvious trauma/crime scene area that has been contaminated, we also perform a thorough deep clean, especially in areas that the untrained eye would not see such as grout, cement, wood flooring and sub flooring.  These areas all have the potential to emanate death odors if they have been contaminated due to the decomposition of human body fluids / blood, and tissue. We use professional-grade decontaminant to make safe potential biological hazards.

Our speedy response from our head office in Glasgow means we can also help a grieving family by dealing with the Trauma and Crime Scene clean up quickly, compassionately and effectively. Our Specialised Balmore Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning team are sensitive to a family’s grief, and will thoroughly explain the process that may be required for their particular situation.  While it is never a pleasant situation, knowing what we are doing and why it needs to be done is an important aspect of what we do while in your home or office space.

Our cleaning team can work with an agent (a friend or family member) so the suffering family need not be involved in a significant way.  We have worked in the trauma and crime scene cleaning sector for long enough to know that along with providing a thorough cleanup service, working in a dignified and professional way that impacts you in the least possible way is the best course of action.


Frequently Asked Questions about Trauma and Crime Scene Clean Up

Who is responsible for Crime Scene Cleanup?  It is generally assumed that emergency services in Scotland will organise cleaning services for trauma incidents and crime scene cleanup.  Sadly this is not correct and the responsibility lies with the property owner to arrange for hazardous cleanup etc that needs to be cleaned.

How quickly can we provide Trauma/Crime Scene Cleanup?  Our trauma clean up team is on call throughout the year.  To discuss your requirements and possible times, please call our Glasgow office on 0141 370 4038

Are your Trauma/Crime Scene Clean Up Team trained in this kind of thing?  The Balmore Contracting Trauma Team undergo specialised training to provide a quality cleaning service that ensures that all biological matter is fully cleaned, the scene is sterilized and nothing is damage.  Our Clean Up Team are both discreet and compassionate to what they have to do and we promise that the scene will be fully cleaned with the minimum possible disruption.

Why can’t I just clean it myself?  The health hazards of not cleaning trauma and crime scenes properly is a significant one and we strongly advise that these kind of clean up situations are carried out by trained professionals.    Viruses and diseases can be easily missed if not dealt with by a trained professional.  Viruses such as Hepatitis B, Hapatitis C and HIV can all be passed by bodily fluids so the effective and professional cleaning of these trauma and crime scenes are vital

Being environmentally friendly throughout our processes is of huge importance to us. We only use cleaning chemicals that do not cause harm to humans or animals and that are bio-degradable. Through taking these measures and many more we aim to reduce the effect on the environment and also minimise the size of our carbon footprint.
