Police & Prison Cell Cleanup

It’s common for police holding cells and prison cells to become contaminated with various biohazardous substances such as blood, urine, vomit or something else.

These create a high risk of infection for those exposed to them and they, therefore, need to be cleaned up by an appropriately trained forensic cleaning team.

In some cases, detainees use what’s known as “dirty protests”. To do this, they defecate or urinate within their holding cell, not using the toilet or other facilities. Sometimes, blood and vomit can also be present.

Although you may not be aware of it, bodily fluids such as these can harbour various infectious diseases which can easily be transmitted to anyone who comes in contact with them.

In particularly bad cases, the walls, ceiling, fixtures and other areas can be affected, and the mess isn’t always contained within a single cell.

Bodily Fluids Can Carry Various Harmful Diseases

There are numerous different types of infectious diseases that can be transmitted through untreated bodily fluids. Two of the most common present in Australia are:

HIV – HIV/AIDS is caused by a lentivirus that is easily transmitted through blood and other bodily fluids. Infected individuals can suffer from a severely depressed immune system, placing them at higher risk of cancer and serious, life-threatening infections.

Hepatitis C – Another common blood-borne illness is Hepatitis C. This virus causes liver infections that can lead to fibrosis and other long-term liver problems. One of the major problems with it is that people don’t always realise that they’re infected. Symptoms can be very minor, and it doesn’t often lead to jaundice like Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. The virus can be transmitted via blood and other bodily fluids.
