Crime scene cleanup is considered a biohazard situation because of the residue left by the crime. Often times there is blood, and other bodily fluids left over by the victim. Any and all of materials that are affected by the bodily fluids are in need of decontamination and removal. This often a time consuming and potentially hazardous since these fluids are contaminating the area.  One of the requirements of dealing with a biohazard is removal of all contaminated material.
