Bio Shield Tech Brings The Best Trauma Clean Up Supplies

For all the difficult jobs there are in the world, one that tops the list of most dangerous and emotionally-trying is that of a trauma clean up agent. In addition to being on the scene of any number of unfortunate circumstances, a trauma crew must maintain their personal safety and the safety of others while being confronted with sights and smells most of us will hopefully never encounter. A traumatic event can include incidents ranging from a car accident to a murder scene, and in each scenario there will not only be potential physical dangers, such as weapons or sharp objects, but also the dangers of the things that can't be seen, such as blood-borne pathogens. We can't stress enough how much we appreciate the work crime scene cleanup crews perform, saving friends and family from having to tackle a task that hits much too close to home. And we are proud to offer a powerful variety of trauma clean up supplies that help those working in this field stay safer and perform their jobs effectively and efficiently. Trauma clean up goes by many different names, including crime scene cleanup and the more specific CTS Decon, which stands for Crime and Trauma Scene Decontamination. The term "decontamination" is an important qualifier when distinguishing the differences between what a trauma clean up crew's duties would be compared to that of someone disinfecting a hospital, for example. While a medical facility requires a complete disinfection, the requirements for trauma clean up are such that the scene must be returned to its condition prior to the incident. This is not to underscore the labor and attention to detail that must go into assuring this is done, rather to distinguish between the two. Certainly, in most instances, cleaning the crime scene will prevent a much more difficult task as the care and consideration for cleanliness that is constant in a medical environment would not be the same as that of a trauma scene. Before trauma clean up even begins, the area to be cleaned must be secured, and the crew must suit up in protective gear. This gear includes, but is not necessarily limited to: protective coveralls like our Kleenguard Coveralls and DuPont Tyvek Coveralls, and protective gloves like our Ansell Gloves. Once the agents are ready to clean the scene, they rely on professional grade cleaners and disinfectants designed to kill harmful bacteria and viruses that may be present. Our top recommendation for cleanup agents is DuPont RelyOn MDC. DuPont RelyOn MDC is a powerful cleaner and disinfectant in one, which effectively protects against an extensive variety of human pathogens including MRSA, VRE, HIV-1, and Hepatitus A, B and C. Available in powder and tablet form, RelyOn MDC can be mixed with water at the trauma clean up scene, making it easier to transport while lightening your load of gear. These concentrated powder and tablet formulas also afford a longer shelf life and lower cost than many pre-mixed cleaners and disinfectants. Add to that the benefit of cleaning and disinfecting in one step, and it's easy to see why we consider DuPont RelyOn MDC the best trauma clean up cleaner and disinfectant on the market.
