Auto Decon – Forensic and Bodily Fluids

Forensic clean ups includes the removal and decontamination of surfaces affected by blood, faeces, urine or other bodily fluids. Vehicles can become contaminated with bodily fluids after a motor vehicle accident, self harm incident or other accidental defecation incidents (human or animal). If bodily fluids are left unattended, they may release protein odour. Protein odours can be difficult to eliminate and the sooner they are attended to, the greater the chances are of removing them.

When restoring vehicles contaminated by bodily fluids, a stringent procedure has been created to protect technicians from possible contraction of pathogens such as HIV, Hepatitis B or C. If the contamination is at a high level, surfaces that have been affected may need to be removed, wrapped for incineration and instantly disposed. In some instances and depending on their porosity, surfaces may only require a thorough clean with enzyme technology products. Enzyme based products allow for the proteins in the contaminant to be digested leaving the surface clean and safe. These products are only effective on hard and non-porous surfaces.

Auto Decontamination Sharps 

As part of Juvenaire’s Auto-Decon service, every vehicle will undergo an initial assessment for the identification of the type and level of contamination and undergo a thorough sweep for sharps. This sweep is necessary to comply with Workplace Health and Safety; to provide a safe work environment for the technicians involved in the project. Every project will have this stringent safety protocol initiated before any further works are undertaken.
