Undoubtedly, suicide has a devastating impact on family, friends and the wider community across Australia. According to ABS data, reported suicide deaths in Australia equates to more than eight per day. Just as alarming, for every death by suicide, it is estimated that as many as 30 people attempt to end their lives or approximately 65,300 suicide attempts each year. For those left to cope with it, a suicide is an unimaginable trauma. In addition to the extreme emotional challenges, there is also the matter of cleaning the scene at which it occurred.

Our compassionate and discreet suicide clean up technicians will handle everything so that you can focus on taking care of yourself and your loved ones.
The Importance of Professional Suicide Cleaning
It may not be easily apparent, but a suicide scene may pose significant health dangers. Blood and other bodily fluids may be contaminated with pathogens, and that contamination can spread around the area. Only experienced professionals have the skills and knowledge needed to ensure that the entire area, including furnishings, flooring and structural elements, is completely disinfected and made safe again for occupants.
Biohazard Cleaning technicians are trained in deodorising, sanitising, and cleaning up any biohazards that may be present, such as microscopic bacteria and viruses. While it is a dangerous task, bodily tissue and blood may contain dangerous pathogens such as HIV, MRSA, Hepatitis C or Hepatitis B, so every trace of biological material must be removed. If the deceased was not discovered for several days or more, the unattended death increases the possibility of additional clean-up concerns that advanced decomposition can pose.
