Why Death & Suicide Cleaning Biological Cleaning Services are Imperative
In the case of any death, suicide or unattended death clean up, the human body begins to decay only 15 minutes after the heart stops beating, and if left for day or weeks, widespread contamination will occur in the property including body fluid leaching into the flooring, walls, sub-flooring and furnishings. Additionally, an infestation of insects such as flies and cockroaches will occur and lay their eggs in and around the decomposing body that in turn, speeds up the decomposition process.
Many unattended death and suicide cleaning situations pose serious health risks to property owners and occupants, and the biohazard remediation technicians due to the potential exposure to blood borne pathogens. Exposure to blood borne viruses can occur due to direct contact with scratches and sores, accidental injury from biological waste, inhalation and exposure from blood or biological hazardous fluid to the eyes, nose or mouth.
Forensic Cleaning is a highly specialised cleaning and remediation disciple which requires technicians to undergo in-depth training and continuous on-the-job learning to ensure all biohazard and pathogens are removed
Why Use Australian Forensic Cleaning for your Post Death Remediation Clean
Australian Forensic Cleaning has a team of trained specialists Death and Suicide Remediation Technicians who understand the hazards, and techniques best used to remove all remnants, and ensure the area is safe and sanitised for future use. Our clients choose us for our proven expertise and discreet approach when providing prompt, reliable and professional Death and Suicide Clean Up services.
Australian Forensic Cleaning will perform thorough Post Death Cleaning and Remediation to ensure all affected areas are treated, sanitised and all odour removed. Often, this will require removal of porous and permeable materials like bedding, curtains, carpets and unsealed timbers. All contents are assessed for restoration to determine if cleaning will be cost effective compared to disposal. Surfaces are decontaminated and sanitised using industry specific blood removal chemicals and antimicrobial disinfecting agents to ensure any cross contamination that has occurred in the property is eliminated. Bacteria, disease and viruses are passed on through inhalation, oral and puncture or touching a surface that looked clean but was in fact contaminated with biohazard infectious contagions. As a part of this service we offer a fully itemised contents report listing all restored and non-restorable contents if required.
