Dealing With The Homicide Or Suicide Area

Even something less traumatic like poisoning or suffocation, where the body remains largely unaffected can still be a very traumatic thing to behold. Especially if the person was a friend or a family member. The time of death can also have its own gruesome consequences.

In the case of an unattended death, the decomposition can also have a major impact on the scene. In the case of a stabbing or death by gunshot, biological contamination can also be a major factor as blood and other bodily fluids can affect the area.

Who Is Responsible For Suicide Or Homicide Cleanup?

From a legal standpoint, the state is not required to clean up the scene of a suicide, homicide, accidental death, or another crime scene. This responsibility falls directly on the shoulders of the property owner. Clean-up can only begin after law enforcement If you happen to own the property where the death occurred you might think about cleaning it yourself.

Can I Clean Up The Scene Of The Death?

This is usually not a good idea. Most of the cleaning products and equipment available at the consumer level simply aren’t effective for the thorough removal of blood and other biological substances. At the same time, you likely don’t have access to the necessary personal protection equipment or the training to affect a complete cleanup and sanitation of the area. Not to mention the emotional impact of trying to clean up the death of a loved one.

Affordable Remediation’s Professional Cleanup Process

Once the local authorities have removed the body of the victim and given permission to start the cleanup process, our technicians will go to work. We start with a thorough assessment of the scene to determine the extent of the problem, identify all effective areas, and evaluate the measures needed to completely restore the affected area. This is all translated into an effective cleaning, sanitation, and deodorizing remediation strategy.

The Affordable Remediation Biohazard Cleaning Process

We use industry best practices and commercial grade personal protection equipment including:

  • Goggles, face shields & other protective eyewear

  • Mask or respirators when needed

  • Aprons, smocks, or other protective outerwear

  • Disposable gloves

Removal Of All Affected Materials

We start by removing any physical biohazards, tissues, and existing fluids as well as affected materials in the area like carpeting or upholstery. All contaminated materials will then be disposed of according to standards established by organizations like OSHA, the EPA, or the Centers for Disease Control. As needed our technicians will use hydroxyls or ozone to ensure all trace odors have been eliminated.

Once all contaminated materials have been removed and biohazards are eliminated, we start the sanitation phase. This calls for using commercial-grade cleaning products and equipment to completely eliminate the presence of any potential on-site pathogens.

Deodorizing & Sanitization

Deodorizing also plays a critical role in cleaning up the scene or death. Oftentimes there is a “Stench of Death” lingering in the air. This might be related to the decomposition of the body, bacterial gases release from the abdomen, or the loss of bowel control at the time of death.

Affordable Remediation’s technicians have access to commercial-grade deodorizing agents that have been approved by the EPA. They have the training, and experience to deploy them to effectively eliminate all unpleasant odors.

Professional Documentation & Certification Upon Completion

As needed we can provide you with detailed documentation of the cleanup process. This will include the items and materials that were cleaned and sanitized or removed. If you prefer, we can coordinate with your insurance company to send this information directly to them, in hopes of expediting the claims process.
