Who cleans up after a suicide?

Suicide is a horrible and devastating situation for both the person who loses the battle and the family and friends who are left behind to try and mentally, emotionally and physically rebuild themselves.

In the event of a suicide the Police may want to attend and confirm it was this exact situation, once they have concluded their investigation and the body has been removed it is then down to the family to ensure that what is left is professionally cleaned, disinfected and in some cases decontaminated.

While they have the option to as it is ultimately their choice is not advisable for a family to do it themselves as many things come into play to ensure that it is performed correctly and does not present a danger to themselves or others.

For example after a quick forensic investigation by the cleaning specialist, blood may be removed and look clean but the bacteria and potential viral infection may be left behind, invisible microbes may continue to multiply and small residue may rot and attract rodents, flies and maggots.

As professional forensic operators for ten years we have the advanced technology to remove stains, and kill bacteria and viruses invisible to the naked eye. This technology enables us to project a dry disinfection fog to follow air currents and kill harmful microns of particles in the air, in grates, inside electrical items, air conditioning systems and more.

Our second machine uses electrostatic technology to push the tiny particles of hospital grade NHS validated high spectrum disinfectant underneath the surface where bacteria and viruses can hide completely from spray bottles and cloths.

We also have in place professional partners that we are licensed to remove biohazardous items to for heat treatment and incineration or deep landfill. We retain all legal paperwork after we transfer it for several years and are licensed by the Environmental Department to carry and sign over any biohazardous waste.
