Suicide Cleanup Service Overview
For many, death by suicide is a subject they are aware of but have never had to deal with. For those families who are not so fortunate, suicide is a word that can barely begin to describe the loss and trauma they have experienced. According to the CDC in 2020, Arizona was ranked as having the 19th highest suicide rate in the United States relative to its population size. Nearly 1,400 people chose to take their own life, and in doing so drastically affected the lives of the people around them.
Discreet Suicide Cleanup Services
In the event of a suicide, a professional biohazard cleanup service is necessary to ensure your home or property is safe from any bloodborne pathogens or infectious diseases. Our staff and technicians at Bioteam work tactfully, professionally, and—most of all—with compassion. Cleanup is not complete until when we can ensure your home has been cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected to our strict standards.
Suicide Cleanup Process
Death by suicide can occur in many ways. The cause of death will dictate the type of remediation that we will need to perform. In many cases, we require that the family vacate the home during the time we are working. If it is not possible to stay with friends or family in the area, we will provide lodging nearby at no cost to the family.
Upon the discovery of someone who has ended their life, the first step is to contact the police department and follow their instructions.
Once the area has been cleared by the police department, a senior technician will be on-scene to assess what has happened and provide guidance on the services that will be required
While we are not grief counselors, we do work closely with professionals to ensure we provide the utmost care and consideration in every interaction.
Once we have access to the home, we will begin the biohazard removal and clean-up process. This can often be completed within a day or two.
Infectious Disease Cleanup
Certain diseases can be present after a person has passed away. If a person was suffering from a specific illness when they died, there may be additional steps needed to eradicate that pathogen. We are trained and equipped to ensure your family is safe to return to their home.
There is no way to know when or where someone will make the decision to take their own life. If this has occurred in a vehicle, our team will work with your insurance company and the assigned repair shop. We will make sure the vehicle has been disinfected to the highest standards before the mechanics start their repair work.
Frequently Asked Questions
