While death is one of the most natural parts of life, it is often unexpected. Usually, this is something most people don’t prepare for. Most people don’t like to think about death because it is associated with loss, and usually sadness.
But what if the unexpected happens? What do you do? How do you handle it?
Experiencing a death can be tragic for any family or loved ones involved, which is not helped regarding the particulars of what to do with the deceased once they have passed on. This can become increasingly complicated and stressful for those affected. We can’t tell you how to handle any type of loss, or any situation that involves death. But we can help explain what the next steps are when dealing with the recently deceased.
Typically, when someone expires, whether it is in a business or a home, and whether a crime occurred or not, the police are usually the first at the scene. While they are usually the first responders, they usually don’t handle clean up. In no circumstance should this kind of clean up be handled by the family or those affected by the death. This is where a professional cleaning company, with PROPER TRAINING, comes into play.
We know it can be hard to deal with when a loved one unexpectedly passes. However this is why we at Clean Earth Restorations consider ourselves to be one of the top companies in our field. We’ve had several families contact us regarding the process after a loved one passes. We were there with our highly trained technicians to make sure the home was properly cleaned and sanitized, and to perform in a way that holds the upmost respect for the family and for the departed, ultimately giving the family some closure and peace.
Here are some of the steps to properly handling the clean up where a death has occurred:
- Preserving evidence for law enforcement officials, if necessary (this includes coordinating with law enforcement officials and other officials)
- Containment and the removal of bio-hazardous materials
- Professional cleaning, disinfecting, and restoration of the property where the incident occurred
- Providing, compassion, understanding, and consideration for the individuals affected by the loss
There aren’t many companies who are properly trained and registered with the state of California to perform bio-recovery cleaning services. Here at Clean Earth Restorations, we are properly registered with the state (#391) and are a member of the ABRA (the American Bio-Recovery Association), which is the industry association leader regarding the field of bio-hazardous cleanup. Additionally, we are a member of the Clean Trust, an association which sets most standards for restoration and cleaning industries. This work is in no part considered light or easy, and we work hard to make sure we meet and retain all of the proper regulations and legal requirements to provide seamless work to all of our clients. We pride ourselves in working closely with legal authorities as well as registered and reputable waste transportation companies to give the most efficient and professional service possible.
