With lockdown from covid the suicide rates in Dallas Texas have seen a rise due to increase mental health issues. It is important in this troubled time that we continue to check on the people we care about, friends and family. However sometimes things happen that cause people to take their own lives. When this happens it is important to mourn the loss of a loved one but it is also important for Dallas residents to know about the other dangers of a suicide in a home. We sat down with a leading crime scene cleanup company in Dallas Texas to discuss some of these dangers.
Luke Wilson is one of the lead supervisors of a team of crime scene cleanup Dallas TX. According to Luke his company has seen a increase in suicide related fatalties in the area. When they have been called in to lend a helping hand with the blood cleanup he has found that many families have been attempting to clean the room a suicide occurred in. This is a big no no according to Luke. What tends to happen is an overwhelmed family will make many rookie mistakes at cleaning up blood. The most common mistake is that they think the blood being cleaned up can be wiped up. This tends to increase the affected surface area. According to Luke what everyone has to realize is that blood, even from a loved one and family member, is still a biohazard. If you remove the appearance of blood you may still have lingering infectious disease elements left behind.
A better way to deal with the aftermath of a suicide is to contract a professional. Although a suicide is nto a crime scene it is similar in the format it is cleaned in. For this reason a crime scene cleanup service in Dallas Texas can also help cleaning after a suicide. Secondly to the cleaning the crime scene cleaners will also handle the legalities of disposing of the biohazard. Again it is hard to think of the suicide as a biohazard but technically that is what it is. So as a biohazard it can not be just disposed of in the garbage or landfill. It will have to be incinerated at a designated facility. Luke’s crime scene cleanup is available to help navigate these problems for residents in Dallas and the surrounding area.
We will continue to follow this story and update you with additional information on how crime scene cleaners in Dallas are helping people cope during the pandemic.
