Losing a loved one to suicide is one of the hardest and most devastating events that families and friends may face. Unfortunately, though, in the hours following a suicide, when a family is dealing with great emotional turmoil, there are practical issues that must be handled, including suicide cleanup.
Not only should a family member or friend not have to deal with the emotional turmoil of cleanup, the reality is that you need professional biohazard remediation services to ensure that the space is restored to a safe condition. The BioClean Team can provide you with discreet and compassionate suicide clean-up in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California.
We have helped families across Southern California handled the issue of suicide cleanup, as well as helping landlords after a tenant has died. Our team will arrive in discreet vehicles and quickly provide you with the services that you need.
How Much Does It Cost?
This is typically the first question people will ask us. After a loved one has died, there are so many arrangements to handle, and funeral costs can be quite exorbitant, but you can rest assured that the cost of suicide cleanup will not be prohibitive. In most cases, property insurance will cover the cost of our services, so you won’t have to worry about the cost.
Our team has been trained to handle cleanup services as well as all of the accompanying paperwork. We have worked with all major insurance carriers, as well as private insurance adjustors, and we can handle the paperwork for you. We will file the claim on your behalf and submit any necessary documents. If you don’t have insurance, we can provide you with a free estimate, and will assist you in any way we can.
When Will Your Team Arrive?
The BioClean Team is available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. You can contact us at any time, night or day, and we will send out an experienced team of biohazard remediation specialists. We can arrive quickly and provide suicide cleanup in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
It is important the suicide cleanup occur as quickly as possible to mitigate any health risks, and we arrive typically within an hour or two to thoroughly clean and decontaminate the area. As soon as first responders and coroners have left, we will be able to come in and provide you with suicide cleanup services.
What Occurs During The Cleanup Process?
While the emotional impact of a suicide is traumatic enough, the grim reality is that any blood or bodily fluid left behind poses a serious health risk to anyone else on the property.
Upon arrival, our team will assess the situation and carefully inspect the area to identify all areas where biohazards may be present. We will clean the area with special chemicals, and carefully remove any contaminated bedding, furnishings and carpeting, etc.
These tasks must be completed by a licensed, certified cleanup team with expert knowledge in biohazard remediation. As an example, while a small blood stain might be visible, what you might not see is that the blood has seeped below carpeting and spread to a wider area. We understand that not all biohazards are immediately visible, and that all biohazards must be removed carefully and securely.
The Emotional Component
The BioClean Team was founded by a nurse with more than 10 years of emergency room experience. Her goal is not just to provide fast, efficient and thorough biohazard cleanup services, but also to provide her clients with a dose of compassion.
She’s helped hundreds of people during some of the most emotionally trying times of their lives, and has trained her team to provide caring and compassionate services. It’s not just about the cleanup; it’s about providing some measure of comfort after a horrible tragedy has occurred.
