Vehicle Decontamination Services in Los Angeles

When would you call a professional crime scene cleaning company to clean blood out of a car? When it’s a really valuable car, or a professional commercial vehicle that justifies the cost of remediating the biohazards inside. Thankfully, many auto insurance policies cover the cost of remediation so business owners and auto owners can get help with the financial impact of a major blood spill or a suicide in an automobile.

Proper remediation is difficult enough in wide open spaces; the nooks and crannies of a vehicle makes cleaning blood from a car tougher. Literally every surface inside the car must be wiped down with a cleaning solution—even the tiniest crevice must be cleaned of all surface dirt and material in order to facilitate proper sanitization, or odor and risk of disease will occur. Some cleanups involve accidents with injuries or vehicle break-ins, where a careless perpetrator was injured during the crime.

RR0913_Reifsteck_img1_s-300x171If you use your car every day, as many of us do, it’s important that the interior environment remain safe and clean. As with all remediation projects, vehicle biohazard situations vary widely, from simple to complex. If a mechanic offers to clean your vehicle as part of a repair service, remember that this only eliminates visible dirt and debris. You may experience recurring odor, or worse – such as infectious biohazard.

Tear Gas Removal in Los Angeles

One of the most daunting cleanup tasks experienced by professional remediation companies like Sterile Pros is a tear gas cleanup. It does more than make a person cry; it will cause violent physical reactions and can be extremely difficult to completely eradicate from a home or commercial structure.

maxresdefault-1-300x225Complete tear gas remediation of a home or business following the use of pepper spray or tear gas requires particular equipment and trained service technicians. Improper remediation by inexperienced cleanup crews may result in inadvertent exposure to these irritants, causing rashes and allergic reactions which affect the mucous membranes and respiratory system. Medical research also suggests that exposure can also cause permanent damage to the heart and liver.

Using state of the art technology and strict control procedures, Sterile Pros provides professional cleanup for your home or business. We perform structural remediation to remove damaged walls, floors and surface coverings, and carefully wash affected surfaces in the home to restore safety.

Accidents and Injuries Cleanup in Manufacturing, Commerce and Transportation


Due to potential health risks from bloodborne pathogens, OSHA regulations require that blood and other biological fluid be cleaned and disposed of in medically approved containers by trained employees wearing personal protective equipment. Most companies don’t have the resources required to properly train or manage their own staff on these important aspects of cleanup, so hiring a professional cleanup company like Sterile Pros is a cost-effective method of dealing with trauma scene cleanup.

Accidents can happen anywhere. Although much of our work is performed in traditional homes or other building structures, Sterile Pro crews are frequently asked to clean up vehicular and mechanical contamination in manufacturing operations, industrial plants, construction and transportation.

Lockout Tagout Services in Santa Clarita

img1-300x169Lockout-tagout (LOTO) or lock and tag is a safety procedure which is used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work. It requires that hazardous power sources be “isolated and rendered inoperative” before any repair procedure is started.

For example a typical industrial machine may contain things like hot fluids, moving presses, blades, propellers, electrical heaters, conveyor belts with pinch points, moving chains, ultraviolet light, etc.

Disconnecting or making safe the equipment involves the removal of all energy sources and is known as isolation. The steps necessary to isolate equipment are often documented in an isolation procedure or a lockout tagout procedure. The isolation procedure generally includes the following tasks:

  1. Identify the energy source(s)
  2. Isolate the energy source(s)
  3. Lock and Tag the energy source(s)
  4. Prove that the equipment isolation is effective

Crime Scene Cleanup in Santa Clarita

crime-scene-tape-3-300x200Sterile Pros employs a systematic approach to cleaning that ensures each and every trauma scene meets or exceeds hospital-grade sanitation standards. Sterile Pros employs trained service technicians who are skilled in removing harmful biological contaminants, as well as any lingering odors. As remediation specialists, our primary goal is to preserve the customer’s property and return the home to a safe, livable condition.

Step One: Control the Contamination

For maximum control, our technicians use proven sanitation procedures, by establishing three zones using plastic sheeting and bio-tape to separate the contaminated area from other parts of the building. This prevents cross-contamination from occurring between clean and affected rooms.

Step Two: Biohazard Cleaning and Structural Removal

  • Cleaning: Sterile Pro technicians start by removing all traces of dirt, chemicals, blood and biological materials from the control zone. Personal property that cannot be remediated must be disassembled and disposed of as medical waste.
  • Sanitization: After cleaning, technicians treat the control zone with disinfectants by spraying surfaces at precise intervals. Following treatment, the crew wipes all surfaces manually a second time before using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, the same technology used by hospitals to verify sanitation level.
  • Deodorization: In the final step, Sterile Pros uses a deodorizer to eliminate the possibility of lingering odors.
