Trauma Scene Cleanup [Photo Contest]


This issue’s photo contest winner is Kenneth Derenzis of Midlantic Restoration LLC in Mt. Vernon, New York for his proper and sensitive trauma scene cleanup of a client’s bathroom. His company will receive a Visa gift card worth $250.

A client called us to an assisted living facility where a gentleman had attempted suicide in his bathroom. His roommate alerted the staff, and he was saved. We mopped our way into the full bath and proceeded to clean the walls with two applications of antimicrobial. The project took a foreman and two cleaning technicians in Tavel suits, rubber gloves, and pipe. The towels were put in triple black bags and put out with the facility’s waste management, and the water was put down the toilet. As you can see, all surfaces responded perfectly.

For an opportunity to win a gift card worth $250, send your images and a brief 100-word description on how you obtained your results to Amanda Hosey, managing editor, at [email protected], or submit via Facebook Messenger at Contest rules available by request.

Though often used interchangeably, sanitizing, disinfecting, and sterilizing are different types of antimicrobial applications. Sanitizers reduce bacteria; disinfectants kill bacteria; and sterilizers kill and reduce new creation of bacteria.
