Anaheim Board Up Leads to SERVPRO Cleaning Up Blood

7/27/2016 (Permalink)

Using the proper safety equipment, SERVPRO of Anaheim West is always prepared for whatever disaster is thrown our way.

Recently SERVPRO of Anaheim West was called out to a pretty standard emergency board up as part of our building services we provide. A drunk driver had driven his vehicle into the garage of a random home owner in his neighborhood. These damages from the impact caused the entire garage door to come off its railings and required a board up for the entire two car garage. Upon arrival, the vehicle was being towed; the drunk driver was being cuffed and, to SERVPRO's surprise, bandaged up. It would appear that this board up was more than just the garage; it would seem that we were now stepping onto a biohazard crime scene.

After talking with the home owners, our onsite technicians were able to explain that the needed cleaning for the blood that the driver had dropped sporadically throughout the garage, was indeed needed to be cleaned up by professionals. Blood Borne Pathogens can cause some of the highest health risk, and improper cleaning of blood can leave behind these said risks. Given that the driver was completely drunk, the alcohol in his system made his blood thinner, and it cause it to spread and spill more than the average non-inebriated citizen.

SERVPRO of Anaheim West cleaned up the blood with our pet friendly and environment friendly chemicals and upon leaving also made friends with the officers on site so if they should need our services in the future, we will be just one phone call away. We at SERVPRO provide a variety of cleaning services, and it is always an option when dealing with a variety of emergency conditions.
