The Life of a Trauma Cleaner

The life of a trauma cleaner

Considering a career as a cleaner? There are lots of options as to which way you’d like your career to go. One of them is becoming a Trauma Cleaner.

Trauma or Crime Scene cleaners need specialist training. They have to deal with the disposal of biological waste and the harsh chemicals often required, both of which could be potentially hazardous. It’s definitely not the job for everyone – you’d need a strong stomach and benefit from the ability to deal with unpleasant smells.

They might be called in to clean up crime scenes or after an accident, and they often have to deal with places where hoarders have lived too.

Sandra Pankhurst has done the job for 20 years, here’s what she has to say about the job.

If you’re interested to read more about Sandra,  you can read an interview with the author of a book about her here. Or, you could find out how to become a Trauma Cleaner in Australia.
