When dealing with blood cleanup, you need a professional. Steri-Clean® Utah is the industry leader in blood cleanup.
First responders, police, EMTs, and coroners do not clean up blood spills and biohazard situations at crime scenes or accidents.
Many people don't realize this. When everyone has gone and they are left standing in the scene left almost as they found it, the stark reality sets in. Suddenly the task of cleaning up is hanging heavily upon them, compounding their grief, pain, and shock.
But blood spills don't always come out of horrific, painful situations. Home births are also a common source of blood spills. Most of the time the midwife has helped to prep the area so that all fluids are contained, but things happen, and spills occur.
Midwives don't do blood cleanup either.
Blood spills are biohazard spills. Cleaning up blood is not as simple as wiping down your counters with a household disinfectant or common bleach. There's a lot more that is required.
In order for blood cleanup to be done safely and thoroughly, you need to hire a company that does just that.
You need to call Steri-Clean Utah.
What Happens When There is a Blood Spill?
There are a number of reasons why a blood spill may occur. A workplace accident, home accident, homicide, home birth, pet injuries, suicide, amputation, trauma, and death scene are some of the many reasons you may need cleanup for a blood spill.
Blood is a liquid, so it does not stay put where it is spilled - it travels. It seeps into cracks and crevices, it permeates porous surfaces, and if the right cleaning treatment is not used, it can even remain when no blood is visible.
If the blood is contaminated with a pathogen, it can spread to others in the area, even those who are trying to clean it up. This means that not only do you need special cleaners and disinfectants to clean a blood spill, you also need special safety gear and equipment.
Blood begins to clot in about two minutes and the longer it sits, the thicker it gets and the more difficult it is to clean. It will thicken and eventually dry, sometimes bonding to more porous material.
In other words, blood becomes increasingly difficult to clean in a fairly short period of time. The longer it sits, the harder it is to clean.
A blood cleanup company like Steri-Clean has the special equipment and products necessary to clean a blood spill safely and easily. They can avoid contamination and even clean blood that has been sitting for several hours.

Cleaning a Blood Spill
You should always approach a blood spill with the expectation that it is contaminated with a bloodborne pathogen.
That is the first and most important step in managing any type of blood spill.
It is not advisable for a person who is not properly trained or who does not have the right equipment and products to attempt to clean a blood spill.
However, if you must handle a blood spill cleanup, even if it is just to move something to contain the area, it is vital that you wear disposable gloves. Avoid tracking the blood outside of the containment area, and wear protective gear (eyewear, overall, booties, etc.) to protect yourself.
