What To Do After a Loved One Commits Suicide
Losing a loved one to suicide is one of the traumatizing things that a person can endure. Especially if you’re the first one to find them.
If you’re the first to discover a loved one after they have committed suicide, the first thing you need to do is call 911.
The first responders are usually the first to arrive. They are often associated with the fire department, so a rescue vehicle or fire truck is typically the first on the scene. Next, the paramedics and police arrive. Finally, the coroner will come to pronounce the death.
If the suicide happened in your place of residence, we highly suggest that you begin to make alternate plans of where to stay. It will be emotional and hard to stay in your home while you recover from the emotional trauma of the event.
If it did not happen in your home, contact the individual responsible for the estate of the individual who passed away and make sure they’re aware that cleaning up after a dead body is present in a home is a biohazard, and should be taken care of by professionals.
Let a professional suicide clean up service take care of all that for you. At Steri-Clean each of our licensed techs has undergone rigorous, special training for dealing with these types of situations.
Don’t do this alone.
If someone you love has committed suicide, it is important to know that you are not alone. Talk to your doctor about getting a referral to talk to a grief counselor so you can learn how to cope. This can help you through the grieving process but also help you deal with other feelings that may arise like depression, anxiety, and guild. There are counselors who are trained specifically for this. Don’t try to go through it alone. If you need help, seek help.
Why Professional Suicide Clean Up is Usually Necessary
A suicide scene is extremely upsetting to be around, but it can also be dangerous. Tissue and bodily fluids, especially blood, can carry several deadly pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens can also transmit a number of diseases that, while not necessarily terminal, have the potential to be quite serious.
There is safety as well as sanitary issues that come with suicide cleanup.
This is why a professional suicide clean up service is necessary. The team will go into the home and analyze the scene. They will discuss with the homeowner what they plan to do to clean up the area,
You may not realize,but homeowner’s insurance often pays for suicide cleanup. We will work directly with your insurance company so you can have peace of mind.
We will make sure that the homeowner knows each step that we take and that they understand that some things - even those with sentimental value - may have to be discarded because they are contaminated and cannot be cleaned.
