Who is responsible for Crime Scene/Trauma/ Suicide/Homicide Clean up in Louisiana?
Many are surprised to learn that EMS, Law enforcement or the coroner are not responsible for the clean up of the crime scene. Once a crime scene investigation is completed and released by the detective, the cleanup is left to the owner of the property to find a professional biohazard clean up company. Most of the time, crime scene are left with dangerous substances, bodily fluids and/or blood pathogens that may not even be visible to the naked eye. Sadly, many family members are left to relive the horror by viewing remanence of the traumatic event with the aftermath of the scene.
Unfortunately, there are property owners/landlords that do not clean the crime scene properly claiming to “save” costs and or only “wash away” the visible blood or bodily fluids from surfaces with regular home detergents and equipment, not understanding the dangers of lingering blood pathogens and bacteria that are not visible to the human eye and most likely seeped into all surfaces it was exposed to.
