Death, although a natural part of life, can be one of the most traumatic events in the life of a family member or loved one. Death can also be a potentially dangerous event for family members or loved ones because of the presence of biohazards. Bio Clean Services provides death cleanup services in Erie, PA and surrounding cities.
After death occurs the breakdown of the human body happens rapidly. At almost every death scene cleanup we perform there is the presence of blood and other bodily fluids and matter that can contain biohazards that may be extremely harmful to anyone that may come in contact. Blood, after leaving the body, will begin to dry and flake. Flakes can become airborne and may be easily ingested but others. Because you may not know the entire health scenario of the deceased, you have to handle the death cleanup process as though it contained potentially fatal biohazards.
When a death is discovered, or after authorities and medical personnel have left, whomever owns the property is usually responsible for the cleanup. If you are untrained in biohazard handling and disposal, you put yourself and others at risk of contracting diseases or other microorganisms that can harm someone’s health.
Bio Clean Services maintains all certifications and special equipment necessary to completely remediate a death scene and return the site to a safe and biohazard free area. We also maintain all of the required permits for proper handling and disposal of any materials or matter containing biohazards. Frequently people attempt to cleanup blood and other trauma scenes themselves not realizing that these biohazards and organisms can survive outside of the human body for a long period of time. Inadequate cleanup can cause horrific odors, the presence of bugs and other harmful bacteria to appear sometimes weeks after the trauma occurred.
If you do not hire a professional death scene cleanup company like Bio Clean Services, it may be very difficult to have these areas restored to a safe environment in the future. Because many of the biohazards are not visible to the human eye, it is often necessary to remove any materials that were in direct relation to the trauma. This may mean walls, flooring and other structures affected. The cost of cleanup after an inadequate cleaning is tremendous and most often the total costs become the responsibility of the property owner or family member. Protect yourself and contact our office immediately for death scene cleanup assistance.
