Domestic Violence in Florida – Some things you should know

In this line of work we often get calls for biohazard clean up where there was a presence of domestic violence.  Over the past decade the amount of domestic violence cases has drastically increased and the severity of these crimes often ends in a tragic death that could have possibly been avoided.‎

If you know someone who is a victim of domestic violence or are a victim yourself, there are resources that can help. Agencies like Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence have programs that can help victims of domestic violence.  There is a common misconception that domestic violence only happens against women. These cases can include children and men who are involved in volatile, abusive relationships.  These agencies have programs that can offer assistance, counseling, emergency housing and other services. There are also legal representatives that can assist you in the process of taking legal action as a victim.

Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard clean up from these types of crimes, death, suicide and other accident scenes.  Anytime there is a presence of blood and other matter that needs to be remediated from these scenes, you should always protect yourself and the health of all people involved by hiring a certified cleanup company to properly clean up these biohazards.  Sadly, many domestic violence cases turn into violet murder crimes or suicide scenes and these are the most common scenes we are hired for.

We provide information like this in effort to promote stopping domestic violence in Florida.  If you or someone you know needs help, we urge you to contact the appropriate agencies for your safety.  Domestic violence charges in Florida carry stiff penalties and most all cases involve imprisonment. If you are reading this article and feel as though you are in a situation that is even “questionable” contact the agencies above today. If you are a victim and in need of our services, please contact our office for more information on our biohazard clean up services and other resources to help.
