Fingerprint Dust Removal

In criminal cases, forensics will dust a crime scene with fingerprint powder in search of evidence. Fingerprint powder more commonly known as fingerprint dust is extremely difficult to remove and if left on internal surfaces and contents will cause staining.

The reasoning behind fingerprint powder being so difficult to remove is due to its particulate size. To understand and gain a perspective on fingerprint dust size, it must be known that particles are usually described in microns, a metric unit of measure. One micron is one-millionth of a metre. Fingerprint dust is less than 10 microns. This combined with its components, Licopodium, Zinc Sterate and Carbon Black, allows for easy adherence to most surfaces and can be easily lodged in near-microscopic places illuminating the complexity of its removal.

As professionals in the field, it is recommended that a qualified and competent company is contacted if fingerprint dust needs removal. The self-removal of components of fingerprint powder may streak, smear and stain surfaces such as painted items, fabrics, porous wood and non-vinyl wallpapers, especially if it is smeared or pushed into the surface.

Juvenaire is qualified in fingerprint dust removal and with the combination of specialised training and the right chemical components, are able to sufficiently and effectively remove all remnants of fingerprint powder.
