Suicide Cleanup: Why you should hire professionals

Suicide Cleanup: Why your mental health will benefit from hiring professionals

Cleaning up after a suicide is physically exhausting and emotionally overwhelming. It also requires a level of training the average person does not possess. The physical threats to your health are well documented - blood, body fluids and cross-contamination. What is not so evident and written about is the impact on one's mental health. 


There are a few things in life that can not be unseen or forgotten. The sight, smell or touch of a loved one's body after suicide is one of those things. For many years to come memories of happier times will be clouded with visions of that gruesome sight.  


Many people mistakenly believe that because they are avid outdoors men or are not bothered by gory movies and violent video games, they will be able to clean up after the suicide of a family member or friend. We can absolutely guarantee you this is a false assumption. Experiencing the scene after a suicide, whether a loved one or even stranger, can result in permanent psychological and emotional scarring.


You are not alone during this tragic time and instead of taking on the burden of cleaning up after a suicide, hire professionals so that you many spend this time with family members and friends grieving and memorializing your loved one, as well as seeking out professional mental health if needed. There are many studies and articles regarding the long-term impact of suicide, including increased incidence of depression, anxiety and PTSD. Call and let the trained experts at Bio-One Raleigh help during this time, so you and your family can begin a healthy and proactive grieving process.
