Who Cleans Up a Crime Scene?
When there is a major accident, serious injury, or death, many people assume that local authorities handle the cleanup.
While it is true a coroner or law enforcement may remove a body or crime related evidence, the scene is still left a mess. The responsibility to clean up a crime scene then falls on the property owner or close relatives.
This is why it’s important to contact a crime scene cleaning service in addition to any relevant authorities when you discover a crime scene on your property.
A professional crime scene cleaner will have the expertise, safety equipment, and special training (such as bloodborne pathogens training) needed to clean up any biohazards.
What Kind of Jobs Do Crime Scene Cleaners Take On?
The team of professional crime scene cleaners at ServiceMaster by Replacements has experience in handling jobs such as:
- Unattended deaths
- Infectious disease
- Meth labs
- Major car accidents
- Tear gas
- Chemical spills
- Animal filth
While some of these cases may not seem like crime scenes, police are often first called to the scene to perform a formal investigation.
Do Crime Scene Cleaners Wash Away Evidence?
At the scene of a homicide, unattended death, or similar crime scene, law enforcement will only allow cleanup to occur after their investigation is completed.
Once all evidence has been collected and every detail has been documented, police notify the property owner the scene is free to access and clean.
Our crime scene cleaners at ServiceMaster by Replacements take great care to cooperate with local authorities. We report any findings to the police if it may be relevant to the investigation.
What is the Hardest Part of Crime Scene Cleaning?
It may seem like the sights and smells would be the most challenging part of cleaning a crime scene.
However, the true hardships stem from the emotional aftermath. Every crime scene has a story and an affected family or loved ones around it.

We are also experienced and trained in providing and recommending console to affected families, friends, and other parties closely involved in an incident.
