Blood is a biohazard that contains a range of pathogens that can be harmful to humans. Untrained people who handle blood could expose themselves to hepatitis, HIV, and a range of other dangerous blood-borne diseases. It is also important to clean up blood quickly to reduce the risk of additional property damage. The longer blood sits without being cleaned, the more it is able to permeate flooring and walls and increase the cleanup costs.

Also, crime scene cleanup of blood is important for emotional recovery. Bloodstains can cause traumatic responses in some people and quick cleanup helps prevent these painful responses.
