Unattended Death Professional Cleaning
Unfortunately, death is not always peaceful and the scene of a death is not always clean and easy to clean. The emotional stress for the victim’s family makes suicide clean-up work more suitable for a certified crime scene clean-up technician. A technician understands the sensitivity of the situation. But he or she is not emotionally involved. A professional can therefore properly and legally clean up biohazardous waste and possibly infectious diseases.
Rapid Restoration technicians respond quickly in the event of suicide or death. They understand the sensitivity and work discreetly to protect the confidentiality of the victim and their family. Our technicians clean, decontaminate, remove, and properly dispose of all potentially infectious furniture. They always restore the scene to its original state.
