While violent crime increased for the second consecutive year, according to the 2016 FBI crime statistic release, a portion of those crimes are likely to occur in residential properties or commercial units. Although the chances of a violent crime or unpleasant situation can seem relatively small or minute, the truth is these situations are occurring more frequently.

Who’s responsible for the cleanup?

Property owners and apartment managers are typically the responsible party for the health and safety of their occupants. The owner and/or operator of these commercial units and residential communities are liable for the cleanup of a site in which a violent crime has left an unpleasant and often uninhabitable scene. Most scenes will be left with biological fluids present, such as blood, bodily fluids, and sometimes other human remnants and secretions. The owners and property managers of these communities are responsible for the health and well-being of the community members when the scene is a result of a death by suicide, natural causes, unattended passing, homicides, accidents, and other violent offenses.

What to do?

The first step to ensuring your residents and community are safe from any blood borne pathogens is to hire a specialized and certified crime scene cleanup company. Should an incident occur in a unit or on a property for which you are responsible, by some state laws, you are prohibited to attempt or perform the cleanup process yourself. However, you are responsible for ensuring that a cleanup does occur, and that it is performed by a skilled and trained biological remediation company.
