Losing a friend, family member, or loved one to suicide is traumatic. Because of the stigma surrounding mental health issues, many survivors blame themselves and wonder what, if anything, they could have done to prevent the death. Even with professional help, many survivors really struggle in the wake of a suicide.
Cleaning up after a suicide only exacerbates that trauma. In most instances, suicides occur in private locations, usually homes. This leaves family members to clean up afterwards. The task is daunting. It is extremely emotional. However, it is also biologically very dangerous. Suicides leave behind bodily fluids that can leave people who are cleaning up afterwards at risk of infection.
The obvious solution is to hire a professional team to clean up after a suicide. At Bio-One, we specialize in biohazard remediation. It is our job to handle scenes with biohazards like blood, bodily fluid, and decomposition. We treat the scene and our customers with respect, while working hard to remove all traces that the suicide occurred. If you are facing cleaning up after a suicide, we are here to help.
Of course, before cleaning can begin, you need to make sure that law enforcement is finished processing the scene. Most suicides are investigated by the police. The investigation may be brief or extensive, depending on the individual circumstances involved. Before you hire someone to clean the scene for you, you want to ensure that law enforcement has gathered any evidence that they need and has released the scene.
At Bio-One, we are proud to do everything we can to help people after a suicide has taken place.
If this all sounds overwhelming, you are not alone. Contact Bio-One to handle the clean up for you. We will do everything we can to restore the area, so that you are not faced with visual reminders of the scene.
