Cleaning Up the Body Fluids
Many body fluids need to get cleaned up in trauma scenes. These include semen, saliva, breast milk, and of course, blood. Biological cleaning means containing the spread of any of these contaminants. In addition, there are probably other chemical and pathogens that need to get cleaned out.
If the individual had biological material growing inside of them, then there is also the need to clean up biohazards from organ and neurochemical toxicity, miscarriages, and birth defects.
These biohazardous materials can spread very fast from the crime scene to the people present. Of course, the staff cleaning up bodily fluids are wearing masks and all sorts of protective gear. But when you are living in a home after an unattended death has taken place, you don’t have the same protective measures in place.
That’s why it’s important to do a thorough biological cleaning of the trauma and suicide crime scene. It’s not something that can get done perfunctorily or by someone who’s not a professional at it.
As you can imagine, most trauma scenes deal with blood in some measure or another. In fact, if it’s a crime scene, then blood will rapidly spread from the shot area, and contaminate all the areas nearby. That’s why it’s important to call in professionals to clean up blood so that you can’t see the aftereffects of such a traumatic event.
Also, blood could potentially contain many different infectious viruses, such as Hepatitis B virus and Human Papillomavirus, which can spread to nearby attendees (even people who are at a walking distance can get infected).
If you are planning to live in your house right after the traumatic event has occurred, you probably don’t want to be reminded of the blood or bodily fluids or contaminants after. A good cleanup company will take care of the crime scene so no remnants of the event are left behind. You won’t even know after that anything traumatic took place in that house.
Removing All Stench
Most of us are used to watching crime scenes on television where our visual senses are engaged, but not our auditory ones. That’s why it’s usually quite surprising to most people how much of a stench a crime scene or unattended death scene can emit.
This stench is created due to the metabolism of fat cells in the blood, and it can be quite putrid and unbearable at times.
Of course, suicide cleanup companies give their staff appropriate protective gears and masks so they don’t have to smell anything or take in any contaminants. But you don’t have the same privilege. Also, you don’t want to be walking around with a mask for the rest of your stay in your home.
Death cleanup companies can help eliminate the stench for you, so it smells as pure and pristine as it did before the traumatic event. Out of sight is out of mind, can truly apply in such a situation.
Working in Tandem with the Police
Many a time, crime scenes aren’t as simplistic as they appear and the police might have to come back to the crime scene over again to ensure they catch all details. The great thing about hiring trauma cleanup companies is that they will work alongside the police to ensure that they don’t indelibly erase some important clue or evidence.
They come with advanced technologies that you have probably never even heard of or seen before. They use techniques such as incineration, heat purification, stain cleaning, deodorization, and biohazard analysis to clean every last trace of the trauma from your home. They also ensure that no harmful chemicals get left behind afterward for your family’s safety.
Some companies will also use ice or water to freeze blood and other bodily fluids in case they need to be collected as evidence for future court proceedings. They will safely secure all necessary bodily fluids and items that they know the police might require later.
These are all things that an experienced death cleanup company will be aware of, as they have dealt with crime scenes previously. You are already dealing with a lot. Not only do you have to deal with the physical aftereffects of this trauma, but also the emotional ones. Let biohazard cleanup companies deal with the madness, and you focus on taking care of yourself and your family.
