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?

Jacksonville Tragedy

Jacksonville Tragedy Suicide Cleanup: There had been a lot of partying the weekend that Jane D. shot herself in the head.

Others say it has no smell but I’m saying it does have a distinct odor, especially after it has been in a decomposition state.

Some of these murder suicides…
