British Columbia's trauma & crime scene cleanup specialists since 1998


Crime scene investigators and other law enforcement personnel utilize extremely fine powders to dust for fingerprints.

The fine powder adheres to virtually anything and may cause damage to the surfaces it comes in contact with.

Trust 1st Trauma Scene Clean Up to ensure that your fingerprint dust concerns will be addressed efficiently and effectively, ensuring a clean and safe environment for all.

Difficulties fingerprint powder presents

Fingerprint powder cleanup is a daunting task and can be very messy due to its particulate size of less than 10 microns. (For comparison, a dust mite is 100 microns or 10 times larger). The powder adheres to almost anything, gets stuck in microscopic nooks and crannies, and can cause damage to surfaces it comes into contact with. It can also spread potentially harmful particulates throughout the area, posing health risks to occupants and compromising the overall cleanliness and safety of the space.

Not surprisingly, cleaning up this type of powder can be extremely tedious and requires great care. 1st Trauma Scene Clean Up’s technicians are experts in removing all of the fingerprint powder present. We work discretely to restore the site to its original condition.

In cleaning up any fingerprint powder, we will restore your space while following all Provincial and Federal cleanup regulations for disposal of any hazardous materials.
