Don't Traumatize Yourself Further Death by suicide is hard enough to deal with. Trying to scrub the scene clean is only going to make your memories of the event worse. If the suicide happens in your own home, you don't want to remember trying to get the area clean on your own. If you come in contact with any of the blood or brain matter on your own, you will need to seek immediate medical care.
Personal Protective Equipment And Death Cleanup The protective equipment that needs to be worn during after-death cleanup services involves overalls, disposable gloves, goggles, safety shoes, and respirators. When you are trying to clean up after a suicide and don't have the correct equipment, you will expose yourself to unnecessary hazards. A professional company will have the equipment necessary to stay safe during the process, so that you don't have to worry about it.
Restore Materials That Can Be Used Again If the death scene cleanup involves carpets, walls or ceilings, after-death cleanup services will do what they can to restore these materials back to normal. It takes specific cleaning protocols to remove bodily fluids from carpets, furniture, and walls. Your cleaning company will work hard to remove stains and get your home back in order after a death in your home.
The Removal of Damaged Materials Before your cleaning company gets to work, they will talk to you about the materials in the scene that are damaged beyond repair. They will ask your permission to throw away the damaged materials in an effort to get your room back to normal. Cleaning the scene will begin with removing all material that is beyond repair in order to see what is left to be cleaned. Any items that are removed because they can't be cleaned or used further will be appropriately discarded.
If Bodily Fluids Seep Into the Floor When bodily fluids have seeped below your flooring into the subfloor, it will probably be necessary to remove the area of flooring and contaminated sub-flooring. If the fluids can be cleaned up and didn't get below the surface, the floor will be carefully cleaned and sealed off to protect the floor from further damage. The cleaning protocol involves using a specialized cleaner that breaks up bodily fluid in order for the fluid to be cleaned up properly. There may be a number of items within the death scene that need to be removed because they can't be cleaned. Upholstery, floorboards, drywall, curtains and more can all be contaminated beyond repair. When you have a trauma cleanup to take care of in your home, it's time to call for the help you deserve. You don't have to manage cleaning up after the suicide on your own.
