My California suicide cleanup services come with a written guarantee.This means that I will return to the suicide scene if at some time a family or business finds something they find disagreeable.

I never ask families or business to sign off on my work. I know that some this I cleanup companies ask families to sign off on their work when they say that they "completed" the task at hand. In this way they manage to wiggle out of future responsibility for any oversights or mishaps that may occur during their work. This is absolutely NOT acceptable in any type of death cleanup work.

There are reasons that you are family members may not want to take part in a suicide cleanup following the death of a loved one. Some people say that there are recurring psychological problems arising from the cleanup itself. It's hard to say whether or not this is true because family members are so grief stricken anyway from the loss of a loved one. Nonetheless, if a family has that discretionary income or homeowners insurance to cover a suicide cleanup cost, and it's probably better to use that discretionary money.

Should you cleanup after a suicide by a family member in your home or theirs?

With that said some types of suicide cleanup are not really all that terrible. In fact, in my 15 years experience in the biohazard cleanup business, I have found suicide scenes in which the remains of the act were no more terrible to clean after then vomit. It's a matter of what a family knows before hand and experience the family may have from blood cleanup work to begin with. In some cases there are spiritual reasons that create a foreboding sense of impending doom simply by the death of a loved one by suicide. In some cases there is a belief that the asthma floats in the air above the death scene. Contaminated air is believed to have some sort of vital force within it that may cause illness or even death.

Science tells us that the hazards within a human cause biohazard cleanup scene arise from blood-borne pathogens and other infectious materials (OPIM). Most often we think of these blood-borne pathogens as human immunodeficiency (HIV) or one or more of the hepatitis virus is like hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and even hepatitis C (hepatitis C is the most deadly).

A suicide death scene may contain more than the externally encountered debris from a violent and deadly bodily force. As noted above, human blood will contaminate the scene. Other potentially infectious materials like synovial fluid (spinal fluid), Other sorts of tissue, and human feces may also contaminate the area along with human urine., Even professional suicide cleanup practitioners like myself. For me it's added income to my biohazard cleanup business.

For family members, it's a horrific task. Most people would not choose to do it. Most would not do a suicide cleanup given the discretionary income to choose otherwise.


In such cases I recommend that families call me and I can get some sort of direction for cleaning. I cannot take responsibility for my information, and I can say that it may make your work less horrific, more safe, and less stressful.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Suicide

PTSD is a fact of life. It's something at our species is dealt with historically since beginning of our use of language and experience of death. Only in the 20th century did the idea of posttraumatic stress disorder appear. Once known as "shellshocked" and help to explain the disoriented behavior displayed by soldiers from the combat experience and witnessing of horrific death scenes.

PTSD is said to arise from stressful situations other than combat. Now in the 21st century you may be interested know that psychologists have more to say on this active the human condition. Battered wives also experience PTSD. The children of battered wives may also experience PTSD. We know that traffic accidents causing spinal injuries will create a "muscle memory" type of PTSD. For example, the classic "whiplash" which means injury to the neck from sudden, forceful impacts from behind cause muscle injuries. As a result recovery from these injuries may take many months.

What happens in the case of severe whiplash is that even after muscles have recovered, more or less, they may heighten and cause pain at certain times. For example, when I have my whiplash from being hit from behind, it took over a year to recover. In the beginning I could not hold my head up without a neck brace. I mean that I could not hold my head up,. Without some sort of support for my hands or neck brace, my head amounted to the weight of a bowling ball on top of my shoulders and my neck did not have the muscles to hold it up.

After I was "recovered" I heard a car skid behind me while I traveled down the Interstate 5. The car did strike the car in front of the, which was the car directly behind me. Just the same, my neck muscles tight and I felt the pain which was so similar to the pain I had suffered during recovery. I attribute this to a type of PTSD muscle memory.

No what's this have to do with suicide and suicide cleanup question mark it is my theory that when PTSD becomes part of a families life following the loss of a loved one to suicide, at PTSD will interfere with their own mind, their interactions with one another and people beyond their own family constellation. This is to be expected. It's just that we never had terms like PTSD to help explain those terrible forms of grief we experience following the death of a loved one. In my mind, here's three conditions that will add to the PTSD that a family may suffer following the death of a loved one by suicide:

Simply being told that a loved one has died from the suicide may create PTSD.

The act of performing a suicide cleanup for a suicide victim in the family may create PTSD for some people.

Witnessing the suicide of a loved one quite possibly create PTSD.

It's hard to say how long the effects of PTSD will remain. It's hard to say what form they will take. It's hard to say that PTSD will even become part of the experience following the suicide of a loved one. In fact, there are cases where a family gains relief from the suicide of a loved one, strange as it may seem. But it is a fact, were a male resident of a home is basically a bully and abuser, the abuser suicide creates a momentary relief. Simply living with such a male bully in the house of will create PTSD in some cases. But the loss of such males may reap feelings of grief and guilt, and not from the suicide itself. These feelings of grief and guilt arise from knowledge that what is filling guilt because they wanted the tyrant did in the first place.

There are steps and strategies to help prevent and deal with suicidal thoughts and feelings. Whether or not the steps and practices actually do a whole lot to stop a committed suicide, we will never know. We can say this much about suicide. Some people begin thinking about suicide from a very long age. In fact one psychologist once wrote, "suicidal ideation may begin as early as six years old." We don't know why this may be the case, but it's assumed that at about the age of seven human beings begin to differentiate between that egocentric self, their sense of being the only object in the universe, and all that other stuff "out there." It's the discovery that there's something out there that may cause harm to the self; it's the discovery that there are forces out there and seen in these unseen forces threaten those powerful beliefs of the six-year-old.

So we may have a sense that committed suicide's have years of tucked away suicidal thoughts. It may be that they never think about their suicidal act until much later in life. In fact some psychologists believe that once the suicide as a possibility arises, even times and dates are set for the act itself. Then or sometime in the approximate time, date, and place, the suicide ideation begins again.

Sylvia Plath's Suicide

At times people who commit suicide will have practice committed suicide. The famous story of Sylvia Plass suicide gives us moments to pause and think. Sylvia Plath was a great writer and poet. She had genuine grievances for social relationships, especially with her male counterpart. But what we consider a "serious grievance" would probably be considered meaningless to people in another time, place, and social situation. Some would say that Sylvia Plath was living on "easy Street" and and nothing to complain about. Whether she did or not will never know. But we do know for real that Sylvia Plath contemplated suicide many times throughout her life. We also know that she practice at suicide a number of times. We know that Sylvia came close to succeeding, and then was saved either by her own powers of the powers of others to intercede. We know that Sylvia Plath died by accident while playing at suicide.


When it comes to suicide cleanup Sylvia Plath suicide did not leave much work. What happened was that Sylvia lived in a London apartment. In this apartment she had one of those old time natural gas ovens that were deadly because the gas caused unconsciousness and then death.

Sylvia had arrange for it) to visit her when Sunday afternoon. She turned on her oven, but ensured the gas would not ignite. At a prearranged time and with the oven full of the deadly gas, Sylvia checked to see if she can see her visitor within sight of her apartment. She looked out the window and we surmised that she saw her friend walking toward the apartment. But Sylvia did not see was that her friend stopped speak with a passerby on the street. For just a few moments in time, the issue of Sylvia's life hung in the balance while Sylvia had expected her friend to walk into the apartment and find her with her head placed in the deadly oven, her friend talked with someone else outside. In those few moments Sylvia fell dead to the gases. She was practicing we believe because she knew Fran would walk in and savor, but for the intervening conversation.

Sylvia Plath story just brings our attention to people who practice suicide to the forefront. What about other types of behaving and sticking your head in an oven, replacing a handgun to the head and pulling the trigger when knowing that the hammer will fall on an empty chamber? What about riding a motorcycle in the dark, in the rain, or on ice covered roads? When I riding a motorcycle.? Isn't that a typo suicidal behavior? What about cigarette smoking? Isn't that a type of suicide we just putting off the debt for the long-term, or short-term for that matter? What about mountain climbing? What about parachuting for fun? And what about the military and some of those risky military occupational endeavors? We can see that there may be some suicidal ideation and everything from our chosen types of transportation, chosen types of recreation, and chosen types of occupation. It just hard to say what types of behaviors lead to practice at suicide.

I know for a fact some California biohazard cleanup companies claim that families would quote cannot cleanup blood from others in their own home." This is absolutely false. Especially in the case of a suicide in a family's residence or in the residents of a family member, families have every right in the world to cleanup blood from their loved one. Blood cleanup need not cause exceptional biohazardous contacts when done properly. More, most blood-borne pathogens (biohazard) become inert after exposure to the elements.

When a family does not have the discretionary income to hire a suicide cleanup company like my company, they're welcome to call me.
