What Is a Crime Scene?
A crime scene is where a violent crime takes place. Coto de Caza is mostly a residential community, with a few public places as well as nearby wilderness areas and parks. Eco Bear assists residential, commercial and industrial property owners with crimes scene cleanups.
A crime scene may involve a small area, such as one room in a home or retail building. It’s common for a crime scene to include several areas of a home or building, such as a kitchen, bedroom and living room or a break room, office and bathroom. A crime scene could include outdoor areas, too. An attack might start on the front porch and move into a home’s living room, or it could start in a store’s parking lot and proceed into the retail space.
Our experienced cleaners have the knowledge and professional-grade disinfectants and equipment to clean indoor and outdoor crime scenes of all types. We understand that your privacy is important. When we perform a crime scene cleanup on your property, we do everything possible to maintain your confidentiality, privacy and trust.
When Can a Crime Scene Be Cleaned?
When Orange County law enforcement officers are made aware of a violent crime in Coto de Caza, they arrive on scene to begin their investigation. Their evidence collection and processing procedures may take a few hours for a simple crime scene or a few days for a more complicated situation. Once they’re finished dusting for fingerprints and collecting other types of evidence, they’ll turn the scene over to the property owner or next-of-kin. This is when you should contact Eco Bear to schedule crime scene cleanup services in Coto de Caza. The sooner the blood, body fluids and tissue are cleaned and the scene is remediated, the better.
Why Prompt Coto de Caza Crime Scene Cleanup Is Important
Most violent crimes result in a large amount of blood, body fluids and tissue at the scene. These organic materials seep into porous surfaces and damage them. Bacteria break down these organic materials and release foul odors. If the scene isn’t promptly cleaned, the liquids could seep into the sub-structure of the home or building. This would require more extensive removal of materials, repairs and remediation.
Prompt cleanup of the crime scene is also important to your emotional well-being. It’s one less thing for you to worry about. The residents or employees who live or work in the home or building may need to access the scene for personal items. If a violent crime happened in your home, you may want to return to as normal of a life there as possible. Even if you decide to sell your home, it will need professional cleaning, disinfection and remediation after a violent crime.
