Blood Cleanup in Atlanta, GA

Blood Cleanup in Atlanta, GA

Blood Cleanup: So I walk into this scene that does not look that bloody and gory as usual scenes do. However, it is behind the scenes, or under, that gets the most affected, goes unseen and sometimes not decontaminated properly. With this situation, I know it’s time to start ripping up the place! (Another fun perk of my job; we get to rip stuff up!).

What’s the hold up? I’m ready to slip on my suit and get to ripping up carpet, pulling the base boards up, scrubbing, blowing, spraying, whatever the scene may need. As I start ripping up the carpet, the foul smell really starts to linger.

Sometimes we discover small chips of bone or pieces of teeth as well. As you may know we are always fully covered and protected in our lovely suits, masks, and gloves. No need to worry about the spread of infectious disease with Advanced Bio Treatment; We have all the proper tools necessary to clean-up any dirty job.

Take a Look Behind and Under the Scene

So the truth behind and under the crime. As we ripped up the floor, the more we discovered. Tons more blood, of course, and the blood is thick and seeps through the pores of the wood.

He walks up to the scene and can analyze what happened by the blood spatter. It truly is amazing what you can figure out from the picture of blood.

My crew managed to save the day! We rid the blood contamination, disinfected the area, kindly disposed of all the left over materials, and taped the area off to keep everyone and everything safe.

If you need scene cleanup and decontamination guidance, have questions about your payment options, which clean up and decon procedures your current insurance policy covers or require our scene cleanup services immediately, don’t hesitate to give Advanced Bio Treatment a call at: 800-295-1684.

We offer a referral fee of up to $500.

Double Bloody Homicide

Instant Orphans From Blood Bath

Blood Cleanup: We are just finishing the cleanup here in Nashville, TN from an attempted double homicide. This was a pretty bad situation for the children of the family as both parents have been shot. The mother is hanging on but the father went instantly.

From what I hear the children were not home when the incident occurred so at least they don’t have the trauma of witnessing this to deal with in addition to the loss they are facing. We do a job not many can do or will ever want to do,  but nonetheless, the job is necessary. There are some individuals who will enjoy this job because they seem to have some sort of enjoyment of the gruesome bloody messes, but for the rest of you, leave it to us!

For me, I get a sense of satisfaction comparable to a fireman who put out a fire when I do a clean up. I am a hero, in a sense! The need is here, we fill the need. Otherwise, who would do it? Unfortunately someone not qualified would do the job were it not for ABT (and there are some others who do this type of work, but I have my doubts they are as thorough as we are.)

Every time we witness these situations we know someone is left hurting and suffering. And every time I am somewhat amazed and shocked. This job is not for the squeamish or the weak stomached! This is a job for a professional, empathetic and thorough person who has the self control and patience to see it through to restoration.

The Devastation of the Loss is Enough

The last thing the victim’s family needs to do is to walk back into their home and face this. We hope you never have to face this type of situation but if you do, take comfort in knowing that there are people who are trained and prepared to help.

We have an amazing team of professionals who work together well. We work with first responders and that is important as well to maintain a working relationship with others who are called out before we are.

Blood cleanup must be done by professionally trained blood cleanup personnel in order to protect current and future inhabitants of a property as well as to ensure the safety of those cleaning blood scenes.

Blood cleanup involves the removal and cleaning or disposal of items that have been contaminated with body fluids, blood, or tissue matter, but does not stop there. Those trained in blood clean up are adept at tracking down and re-mediating areas that have been contaminated – areas that the untrained eye would not see.

When a firearm is used, there is often as much bio-hazardous material that you cannot see as there is that is visible. For the safety of a blood cleanup technician, and of future inhabitants, it is most important that this bio-hazardous material be decontaminated as well.

If you need blood clean-up guidance, have questions about your payment options or which crime scene clean up procedures your current insurance policy covers, or require our blood cleanup services immediately, give Advanced Bio Treatment a call at 800-706-1420.






Suicide of an Addict

It all started with a painkiller.

J. Doe had suffered a knee injury and surgery didn’t seem to get rid of the pain. Doctors prescribed Oxycontin and countless other pain pills which did knock the pain but after awhile he was used to it and needed something stronger. At a party he was introduced to heroin which he instantly fell in love with.

Heroin wasn’t hard to come by and he got it for much less than what he had been paying for pills. He had a problem with drinking in his early twenties and  had been going to AA meetings.

The apartment had a few empty bottles of prescriptions for Subtex, also known as buprenorphine, a treatment for heroin addiction that is an alternative to methadone treatment.

Also known as Suboxone, buprenorphine works by blocking the “high” users feel when they do heroin or opioid based pain killers.

The indication was that he had attempted to overcome the Heroin addiction by using the Subtex which blocked the high of heroin which is supposed to help the addict stop.

Sadly, J. Doe must not have been able to stop the usage or just lost hope altogether, and ended up slitting his wrists in the bath tub. His family tried to understand but couldn’t make sense of what had happened.

Heroin addiction is growing at alarming rates and is readily available on the streets. The recent death of Philip Seymour Hoffman brought attention to the rising problem as people were stunned at the amounts of heroin bags found in his apartment.

Suicide is often a horrific and the scene should not be attempted to be cleaned by family members or anyone who hasn’t been trained. The emotional trauma of a suicide is devastating enough without adding to their emotional pain any further.

Imagine the painful unanswered questions this family has and will continue to have in the future.

As cleanup technicians for Advanced Bio Treatment we are trained to be empathetic and provide helpful assistance to the surviving family. As much as we try our words can’t erase the pain or bring back a young woman’s life which has been lost forever due primarily to drug addiction.
