When someone takes their life, those who knew and loved them are nothing short of crushed. The last thing that anyone is thinking about is suicide cleanup. Most times people are in utter shock and then deep sorrowful sadness. Suicide can be prevented, and when it isn’t, it hurts beyond words.
Unfortunately, tasks like disinfecting the area and cleaning up remains/blood are important after such an event. Pathogens can infect others and cause harm to those left behind at the scene. Restoring a space to a safe condition is imperative.
And what is most unfortunate about this chore is that it is usually left to the family of the deceased or the owner of the home/apartment/business building to do. It’s an unthinkable thing to have to conquer on your own. Those who are put in this position usually call people like us— a professional biohazard remediation company.
Hiring a Suicide Cleanup Crew
A biohazard remediation company is a licensed organization of professionals with expertise in cleaning up biohazardous materials. Biohazardous materials include anything from chemicals, to sharp objects, to human remains and blood.
Some instances of suicide can be quite violent, with small particles of blood reaching in far places. When you hire a suicide cleanup crew, they will understand this and anticipate finding blood in interesting places. Licensed suicide cleanup crews know what to look for and what to expect.
For instance, what might seem like a small mess of blood on carpet to an uneducated eye could very well be a threat to someone who knows the danger of pathogens. That small patch of blood could have seeped to the subfloor of the carpet and expanded to farther places underneath.
If that blood is left unattended and not cleaned up, serious illness can come from it. That’s why it’s incredibly important to hire a suicide clean up crew after a suicidal event.
But First, Compassion
When the BIOClean Team is called to a suicide cleanup, we practice discretion and professionalism in every step of the way. If loved ones are still on-scene after our arrival, we will first always express our deepest condolences.
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.
Compassion is always important, but it is especially crucial in the first moments after losing a loved one to suicide. Suicide is devastating and unthinkable. We understand that seeing a cleanup crew come to clean up your loved one’s blood and remains can also be traumatizing in and of itself.
Next, we will ask everyone to clear the scene so that we can get to work. We will investigate the area and learn about the incident and how the event happened. Learning about what happened allows us to anticipate where we might find any biohazardous materials.
We will then use special chemicals to disinfect and clean out the site. We will carefully thumb through and remove infected materials like carpets, rugs, cushions, furniture, etc. Removing these items ensures that there are no lingering pathogens after we leave the site
The specific chemicals we use not only disinfect any bacteria left behind, but also ultimately allows for the space to be habitable again by people and animals.
