Crime scene cleanup refers to decontaminating scenes of homicides, murders, rapes, residential accidents, industrial accidents, suicides, decomps, e.g., scenes where humans (and/or animals) have died and decomposed. The proper term for this industry is Crime and Trauma Scene Decontamination, which stands for crime and trauma scene decontamination. A person who performs this work is known as a CTS Decon Biorecovery Technician (generically called a crime scene cleaner).

You will also hear it referred to as trauma scene cleanup, bio-recovery, forensic cleaning, death scene clean up, blood cleaning, etc. All these terms refer to the same industry and even though it is generically called crime scene clean up, the majority of the jobs are not crime scenes. Think of all these terms as referring to a biologically contaminated site that needs to be properly cleaned and decontaminated and that will help you understand all these terms better.

Crime scene cleaners are many times also involved in hoarder property cleaning and meth lab cleanup because many of the work principles, supplies and equipment, techniques, paperwork and regulations are common to the three industries of crime and trauma scene cleaning, meth lab decontamination, and hoarding cleanup.

Why would anyone want to get into this industry?

Because it is very rewarding. It can be very emotionally rewarding to help others who are dealing with a terrible event in their life and it can be very financially rewarding at the same time.

The largest CTS Decon job we ever handled was $267,000.00. While that is not large compared to some fire/water damage jobs it is very large for a crime scene cleanup company. An interesting note is that this job was out of our geographic service area so we passed it on to one of our students. That turned out to be a great job for him!

If you are an employer seeking to train employees, but don't want them to know any of the business aspects of the business, then you want to be sure to check out our 21-Hr. Employee Crime/Trauma Scene Clean Up course.

What about on-site hands-on training?

So what about hands on? Here's what we have to say about that:

If Michael called you up and said,

"I have a shotgun suicide (or meth lab or hoarder property) to go to and I want you to come with me.

You're going to stand right next to me for the entire job from the beginning to the end.

I'm going to tell you what we're going to do, why we're going to do it, and then we'll do it right before your eyes so that you can see everything in fine detail.

I'll take my time and teach you everything, step by step. When we're done you'll know everything I know about working a scene from beginning to end!"

You'd think that was a once in a lifetime opportunity, wouldn't you?

You'd drop everything you were doing to jump at this offer, wouldn't you?

Well, our training is no different from that. The only thing you don't have to do is get all hot and sweaty!

We learn with our eyes, ears, and mind.

Don't believe the myth that says we only learn by doing it with our hands. That myth was created 50 years ago before we had the technology of today.

Do you really need to block a week out of your life, fly cross country, get a hotel, get a rental car and drive to a building just to put on a suit and be shown how to use a sponge? Of course not!

You might be saying to yourself, "What if I have a question? It's not like I can raise my hand and get an answer."

Believe us, we have trained students in over 25 different countries and all the students had the same questions in every single class. All of your questions will be answered if you just take the course as designed. All we ask is that you jot down your questions as they come to you and continue studying the course. Typically you will find that when a question pops up in your mind it's getting ready to be answered if you'll just continue studying the course. Your questions will be answered.

But what happens if you really do come up with a question that has never been asked before? It's easy: You email or call us and we'll discuss it. We are available to you and it's really just that simple.

Want to get into the industry? Take our courses. It's really that simple.
