After the call to 911, when police or the coroner have come and gone, who do you call to help put things back in order, even when things will never be the same again?

When a tragedy has occurred, and your life has been turned upside down, place your trust and property in the hands of Advanced Bio Treatment’s experienced, trained professionals specializing in crime, suicide or accident scene cleanup and site remediation.

We understand you’re calling us in the aftermath of a terrible event, one that has likely left you reeling and confused. We will always treat you and your family in a way that demonstrates that we understand the pain and the difficulty of everyday life that the loss of a loved one can result in.

As part of any scene cleaning in the wake of the unthinkable, we will remove and decontaminate the blood, tissue and bodily fluids this tragic incident has left behind. We also make sure that all biohazardous material is correctly disposed of, using specially designed bags to contain any dangerous pathogens which can pose a significant risk to human and animal health. This is one reason why it is so important to hire only those who are knowledgeable, certified and experts in the field, like those at ABT.

We strictly adhere to OSHAs regulations and API Worksafe guidelines, as well as deploying only hospital grade, EPA registered cleaners and disinfectants to ensure the safety of current or future residents.

Some of those who need our help, particularly, are those who are struggling with the confusion, shock and overwhelming grief caused by the loss of a loved one at their own hands, as that which recently claimed the life of the much beloved star of screen and stage, the irreplaceable Robin Williams, 63.

Dealing with the heartbreak and unanswered questions that remain after a suicide, is enough of a burden. You shouldn’t attempt to add on the terrible task of cleaning up your home or property as well. These scenes can be hard for families to see, for obvious reasons, and trying to put a home back to order after a suicide can be a potentially damaging, traumatic event of its own aside from everything else already going on. At Advanced Bio Treatment, we always perform suicide cleaning services with not only your environmental needs in mind, but also the welfare of your emotional needs.

I was recently contacted by the mother of a young man who had unfortunately made the decision to end his young after he had endured a deeply profound bout of depression caused by the combination of being sexually assaulted in his school locker room by a coach and the very intense public humiliation, shame and bullying by some members of the community that had followed.

She had called to tearfully thank us for the work we had done to restore her home in the aftermath of her son’s suicide. The residence was located in a very upscale, charming neighborhood just outside of Fredericksburg, Maryland, near Baltimore, on a quiet street in a family focused community.

Thinking back, I recalled images of blood soaked carpet, and bloody walls… the young man had chosen to use his father’s antique revolver to do the deed. It had done it’s job thoroughly. We had to be just as thorough in our work.

Even though the boy had been discovered just moments after the fatal gunshot, the blood from a head wound is immense. We had to strip away the carpet, and remove blood all the way down to the sub flooring. After we had cleaned the flooring in its totality, including replacing the wood beneath the carpet padding and then the carpet itself, we had to start on the walls.

We used special lighting to track every drop of blood, from the largest glob to the tiniest pin drop, so that complete removal was carried out. Though not necessary in this case, many times we will strip the room to its bare bones to replace entire panels of dry wall. We are that serious in our determination to not only eliminate hazards, but to erase all signs of the horrible night.

Finally, we put up a fresh coat of paint and then replaced the furniture and art. By the time wee had finished, there was absolutely no evidence that anything like a suicide had taken place in the home, save for the many bouquets of flowers and sympathy cards that occupied nearly every bit of free space.

Our job is one that many people find repugnant and could never imagine doing. But who else do you call when you need a helping hand and a fresh start in the aftermath of something as heartbreaking as a suicide? No one else but Advanced Bio Treatment.
