Death Decomposition Cleanup Service

Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard cleanup of decomposing death scenes in Florida.  When someone dies, the body goes through many rapid changes and the decomposition process starts almost immediately.

When a person’s heart stops beating the cells and tissues stop receiving oxygen. Brain cells are the first to die, usually within seven minutes after the heart stops (bone and skin cells can survive for several days). Blood begins to drain and pool in lower-lying portions of the body. This pooling causes blood leakage that requires professional death scene cleanup. As a body’s cells die, bacteria begins to break them down causing the appearance of the body to change dramatically and smell.  Decomposing death cleanup requires biohazard remediation practices that should only be performed by professionally trained company.

Once the body is well into the decomposition process, insects are usually present. These insects not only feed on the decomposing body but are able to multiply in mass quantity. This is especially dangerous because these insects can carry contaminated biohazards to other areas and potentially other people.  If you are unfamiliar with cleanup practices for a death scene you are putting yourself and others at risk for possible contamination. If skin and bone cells can live for several days after death, that means the bacterial and other potentially dangerous pathogens can live even longer.

Because of the location, it’s very common to receive calls for decomposition cleanup services all throughout our service areas.  Many of the rural areas experience increased numbers of people dying at home who many not be found for some time after they’ve died.  Discovering someone’s death is traumatic enough, but an untrained individual attempting to deal with the cleanup of a decomposing body is most often more than they can emotionally handle.

If you find yourself being responsible for the cleanup of a friend or loved one, contact the professionals at Bio Scene Clean Up. We provide 24 hour emergency dispatch for death and decomposition cleanup service. Our technicians are professional and compassionate and have experience in dealing with the emotional aftermath experienced by our clients.

Workplace Accident Biohazard Cleanup

Bio Scene Clean Up provides biohazard remediation and disposal from workplace and industrial accidents in Florida.  When most people think of biohazard cleanup they think of chemical spills or other toxins that are environmentally related.  Biohazards in the workplace can come from all sorts of incidents especially when there is a presence of blood, tissue and bodily fluids that affect an accident area.

Cleaning biohazards in the workplace is an especially sensitive issue as most workplaces involve many people confined to a specific area and the chances of biohazard contamination are increased because of this. Anytime an industrial accident has a presence of blood or other potentially dangerous biohazards it becomes crucial to hire a professional biohazard cleanup company like Bio Scene Clean Up. OSHA requires that strict protocol be followed when cleaning or disposing of biohazard in the workplace. Blood biohazard cleanup is one of the strictest protocols we must follow when a trauma occurs.

Many workplace accidents occur because of misuse of equipment or negligence of the victim in some form.  When these accidents occur, Bio Scene Clean Up technicians are able to dispatch emergency cleanup technicians to discreetly remove and dispose of all traces of blood or other biohazards found at the accident scene.  Emergency personnel will frequently leave biohazard materials at a trauma scene, especially when the accidents are life threatening and immediate medical transport is necessary.

Business owners or managers are left with the responsibility of cleaning up the accident scene and protection of other employees or individuals who may come in contact with the biohazard area. When trauma or accident scenes contain blood the potential for bio contamination is significantly increased. Blood, in various forms, can become a huge potential in the compromising of someone’s health if they are exposed, ingest or have contact by other means.  The responsibility of the safety and protection of other employees, clients and individuals is the responsibility of the business owner and should not be taken lightly. 

Even if your company has established biohazard cleanup protocols, it is always best to employ a certified biohazard cleanup company to perform the cleaning. Not only will it eliminate your liability, it helps ensure that the job is done properly and that all areas affected by the trauma will be biohazard free and a safe environment for your staff and clients.  Contact our staff immediately if you experience an industrial accident.

Trauma Scene Clean up in Tampa, FL

The police, fire and other rescue departments play a crucial part in handling the many tasks after a death or suicide.  These crucial professionals however, do not clean up the trauma scene. Trauma-scene clean up is a niche market within the cleaning industry and many clean up steps following a trauma must adhere to strict regulations for handling decontamination and materials.

Special equipment, chemicals and materials are necessary when performing this type of clean up as it involves dangerous and most often contaminated materials that cannot be cleaned up using conventional house cleaning methods. Depending on the location of the trauma scene, different precautionary practices become applicable to ensure safety.

Some different types of Trauma Scene Clean Up can be:

Death Clean Up  (Resulting from natural death, an accident or a violet trauma such as murder)

Florida Death Cleanup Services

Bio Scene Clean Up offers death and body decomposition (unattended death) cleaning in Tampa, Florida and surrounding cities. Bio Scene Technicians are experienced in removal, sanitizing, decontamination and deodorizing sites where deaths have occurred. 

Cleaning death scenes can be a difficult task but our technicians maintain the certifications and professional equipment necessary to perform death scene cleanup services in Florida.  Death sites that require professional biohazard cleanup are common in Florida, many of which are also unattended death scenes or sites where a death had been undiscovered for several days or weeks.

When a person dies and the heart stops pumping, the cells in the body begin to die from lack of oxygen and the decaying process immediately begins.  Death leads to rapid changes in the appearance of a body and the body can become unrecognizable in a very short time if not discovered.  After death the body will also release toxins and bacteria that create horrific odors and become airborne pathogens that are harmful to anyone coming into contact with them. These pathogens and bacteria are easily spread and are in most cases not visible to the human eye or an untrained person.  Improper cleanup practices can create potential health hazards in death scenes for weeks to even months after the death has occurred.

Because the risks of biohazard contamination are so high and the emotional trauma can be damaging to friends or family members of the deceased you should never attempt death scene cleanup on your own. Hire a professional company like Bio Scene Clean Up.  Our team can remediate the areas directly affected by the death scene with our certified biohazard cleaning techniques.  Our death scene cleanup services ensure that any health risks associated with blood or biohazards are eliminated.
