US is experiencing an increase on vehicular suicides

Recently, leaping in front of automobiles has become a very common trend for suicides. Even a simple auto accident can cause contamination if there is a presence of blood and other fluids in or on the vehicle. Every scenario is different and the process of cleaning and restoration can range from a simple high steam cleaning of the exterior to a complex disassemble of the interior and replacement of affected components.

Vehicles that contain blood saturation most always need to be brought to the Bio Clean Service facility where our team of professionals can dismantle the components in a clean, safe environment, properly clean and disinfect the areas and install the new replacement components to restore the vehicle to a safe condition. 

In regards to interior clean up, you cannot simply extract blood using steam extraction methods. Fabric areas affected by blood will need to be completely replaced. If even trace amounts of blood are not removed the site will remain hazardous, have extreme odors and attract bugs & insects.

Another misconception pertaining to auto accidents or vehicular suicides are contaminants found on a vehicles exterior. Frequently, these accidents involve pedestrians and animals and can leave behind huge amounts of bio-hazardous contaminants on and underneath the vehicle. These incidents must be handled the same way as an interior restoration and a full assessment must be made to determine the proper methods of cleaning.

Bio Clean Services warns consumers against attempting to clean a vehicle that contains these types of materials. If proper procedures are not taken to restore the vehicle, it is often times extremely difficult for a professional to restore components that have been improperly cleaned or disinfected. This leads to additional costs and replacement of components that may not be necessary if assessed and performed by a professional immediately after the accident.
