There’s good reason to use a professional company that’s experienced in suicide clean up. Suicide, trauma and unattended death scenes are not only visually disturbing; they can also contain pathogens and materials that are a health hazard. Cleaning after a trauma scene exposes people to many potential hazards associated with blood, tissue, and bodily fluids.
Blood borne pathogens are microorganisms in human blood or certain body fluids that cause disease in humans. The most common blood borne pathogens are Hepatitis B and HIV, which causes AIDS. Methods of exposure to blood borne pathogens include ingestion, inhalation, absorption, injection, and direct mucous membrane contact. Blood, faeces, urine, and vomit are all considered to be biohazards and should be treated with great caution and due care.
