Crime Scene Cleanup Cleaning
Homicide (Murder) and Other Violent Crimes Cleanup
Violent death is quite possibly the most traumatic form of death and leaves families feeling both traumatized and victimized. Just dealing with the loss of a loved one and the circumstances of their death can be overwhelming for a family. In addition to dealing with the emotional fallout of a traumatic death in the family, surviving members need to make funeral arrangements, deal with insurance issues, contact family and friends and locate wills. On top of that, with violent crimes the media and police are involved. All this can quickly overwhelm a family.
A.C.T. Remediation Services can help remove one burden; dealing with the gruesome murder cleanup or crime scene cleanup. We will work quickly and efficiently while being sensitive to your grief, thereby allowing you to deal with more important matters.
Self Inflicted Death or Attempts (Suicide) Cleanup
We may never understand why someone would take their own life, but it happens, and is always devastating for the family. When firearms (handguns, rifles and shotguns) are involved the scene is especially disturbing and leaves a crime scene that no one should ever have to witness. It can be ghastly, resulting in family and friends experiencing additional emotional trauma such as Critical Incident Stress Syndrome. By hiring professionals to clean this scene you can reduce the emotional stress on the family. A.C.T. Remediation will work as discreetly as possible to protect the confidentiality of the victim and family.
Unattended Death Cleanup
After a death, nature immediately begins the process of breaking down a body. This process begins right away and signs of biological decomposition can appear in as little as a day. As decomposition continues, biological fluids begin to seep from the body. These fluids are rich in nutrients that are desirable to bacteria, insects and mold. In addition to promoting the growth of bacteria, insects and mold, these fluids release a 'death' odor. The visual and olfactory components of this decomposition can overwhelm senses. In addition, unattended death scene can be dangerous due to the bloodborne pathogens, bacteria and mold spores. While most people understand the risks of exposure to bloodborne pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis there are additional risks associated with the cleanup of this type of scene. Exposure may result in flu-like illness or attacks on the respiratory system. As such these scenes are better left to professionals that specialize in blood and bio fluid remediation
Automobile/Vehicle Blood Cleanup
Violent activities such as shootings, self inflicted wounds and stabbings can occur inside cars and trucks as well as homes. An unattended death which occurs inside a vehicle can be quite gruesome. Biological decomposition is often accelerated inside a vehicle. This results in a large volume of body fluids being released. Complete recovery of all the fluids and sanitizing the vehicle are critical to restoring the vehicle to a suitable state
Accidents and Injury Blood Cleanup
Just because someone survived an injury or accident does not mean that the scene is any less difficult to clean. Industrial accidents can have a traumatic personal effect on employees. Besides the potential emotional damage one can feel cleaning up after a colleague, friend or family member, retrieval of body fluids by janitorial staffs (even those with bloodborne pathogen training) can quickly mount into more than the untrained professional can safely handle. Let professionals deal with these types of cleanup.
