Dallas Suicide Cleanup Service

Any situation involving a suicide is a delicate one for many reasons. In addition to the emotional trauma experienced by loved ones, there is also the question of handling the physical space where the suicide occurred. This scene must be cleaned up, and it’s typically best for everyone if this cleanup is handled by a professional company.

We don’t recommend that the loved ones of the deceased handle cleaning up the scene after the event. Not only is this bad for the emotional and mental health of the deceased’s loved ones, but cleaning up the scene of a suicide is not something that should be done without the proper expertise. That’s where the pros at Texas Disaster Restoration come in. We can clean things up in an efficient manner while showing you, your family, and your property the respect and dignity you deserve. We will clean up any biohazards present, as we are certified to do so, and attempt to salvage as much physical property left behind as possible.

Unattended Death

Sometimes, a person’s body isn’t found right away after their passing. Since decomposition begins as soon as the body expires, the scene of the person’s passing can quickly become very hazardous. This is not something any person or family should have to clean up on their own. Luckily, Texas Disaster Restoration has the skill and experience to fully clean up after unattended deaths.

We will completely remove all traces of blood and other bodily fluids, as we are experts in handling and removing these substances. We will treat all surfaces that the body may have touched, as well as provide you with a clear list of items that we were not able to salvage during the cleanup. This list is important, as most of the time, your insurance company will not only cover the cost of our services but also the value of any items lost and the cost of replacing them. Finally, we will be sure to remove any odors associated with the death by deodorizing the affected areas.

Compassionate and Confidential Suicide Cleanup Services

At Texas Disaster Restoration, we pride ourselves on two things: confidentiality and peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions About Suicide Cleanup

1Who is responsible for cleaning up the scene of a suicide?
Unfortunately, the responsibility for cleaning up after a suicide falls on the shoulders of the deceased person’s family members and/or the owner of the property where the suicide occurred. Law enforcement only investigates the scene; it does not clean it up.
2Will my homeowners’ insurance policy cover the cost of suicide cleanup services?
Some policies cover the cost of professional suicide cleanup, but not all policies do. We invite you to reach out to your provider or agent to be completely sure.
3What are the potential hazards of suicide scene cleanup?
Suicide scene cleanup involves numerous hazards. The first is dealing with bodily fluids and other hazardous materials that result from death and decomposition. Please note that if a scene is not properly cleaned up, these materials may linger long after the area appears clean. Any of the materials and the bacteria that result can quickly spread if the area is not treated by a professional. In addition to these physical hazards, there is also an emotional and physical toll that comes from trying to clean up the suicide of a loved one yourself. This is why we urge all families who are dealing with this tragic situation to reach out to a professional to handle the cleanup.
