California Blood Cleanup Narrative - Audio
I'm Eddie Evans. I've been doing blood cleanup work professionally for over 16 years. I've cleaned up blood in 24 states, including Washington DC. So I have a lot of experience, which includes military trauma scene blood cleanup. So I have a lot of experience and cleaning up after homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, and traumatic blood loss events. I guarantee my work. I do not ask families or businesses to "sign-off" on my work, as if to absolve myself from any responsibility for the blood cleanup work completed. I do return and I have returned and I'm not ashamed to admit that in 16 years, if you times I have missed something.
If you choose to do business with me, I will ask for an email, although an email is not required for my services. An email gives us a paper trail and helps me to understand what you need. It also gives you something you can print out and have in your hand for later reference. It guarantees my words in writing. And it's also the means that I will send an invoice for California blood cleanup services. You will not find an email address on this page because email spammers will find the address.
I do blood cleanup for less than my competitors because I do the work myself. I have no employees. As a result I spend less money a blood cleanup work. I accept cash, check, and homeowners insurance.
I write about conditions because most callers for my blood cleanup service may have seen the blood cleanup scene or they may just be reporting with someone said. In either case, most often people knew to traumatic blood loss scenes are unfamiliar with requirements for cleaning. There's a lot more going on than most people imagine, then. Elsewhere I explained some of the details about what does happen, but here it's better left unsaid. The important point to understand is that there are conditions the responsible party may not exist.
On the telephone I will ask a number of questions and I try to keep it short and to the point. No matter if you want my service are you choose to do the work yourself, or perhaps you've already hired another blood cleanup company and simply want to know what to expect from them. I merely answer questions.
Here's questions that I ask about cleaning up after homicide, suicide, unattended death, decomposition cleanup, and other blood cleanup related questions.
- What city are we talking about?
- What type of building, house, condominium, apartment, mobile home, recreational vehicle?
- What room or rooms, bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen?
- What time would you like work to begin?
- How would you like to pay? Who is the responsible party, the party responsible for letting me in the building?
- If you want to use homeowners insurance, have you talked to your insurance company?
- I do my best to arrive on time. I arrive on time for most California blood cleanup projects because they leave hours early. In this way I bypass rush-hour traffic.
- I introduce myself at the door and my business card to the responsible party.
- I into the premises an open the door to the blood cleanup scene and making assessment for the tools, equipment, and chemicals that I will be using. And then returned to my vehicle and gather the needed supplies.
- I will ask if there is a second entrance been I might use to avoid coming through the front door during the cleaning process.
- I will ask the responsible party or someone else present in the building if they would mind walking through the area when I think I've completed my work. I do this because as I say, "I need young eyes to see for me" just in case.
- I will remind the responsible party and I guarantee my work and I will return if there are any concerns.
- I will use over-the-counter cleaning chemicals so that the family can find the scene chemicals on their supermarket or hardware store shelves. In this way they can assure themselves that information related to the chemicals I you is available to them following cleanup. I use household bleach for disinfecting before, during and after cleaning. I also use rubbing alcohol on light switches, door handles, bathroom faucets, toilets, and other areas.
- Parking close to my work is important because I must carry tools, equipment, and cleaning chemicals. There are also security issues at times. Will I need to park in the basement? This is important to know before hand because if I drive a van, my van rides fairly high.
- Time? I'm flexible when it comes to time, but I prefer to work early in the day. By starting work early, I can leave my home early and thereby miss a lot of rush-hour traffic. But I can accommodate families and businesses in need my blood cleanup services later in the day.
- Indoors or Outdoors - - Sometimes it's a good idea to know beforehand if will be cleaning indoors or outdoors. In the past I found that while cleaning outdoors might abuse the power washer in some cases. It's important to know though, that we cannot just flush human blood down the sidewalk and into the street. Although, this was the procedure not so long ago. And it still done by some fire departments across the country.
- Electricity? - - Most often electricity is available, but it doesn't hurt ask. I can bring along a generator to generate electricity if needed. I have in the past clean in the high desert where there was no running water or electricity. I cleaned and abandoned homes that have not had electricity and months.
- Water? - - Just as I've cleaned in high desert without electricity, I've cleaned in high desert as well as low deserts, deep in the mountains, and in buildings four stories high. And all the while I cleaned in these environments without water. So it's important to know before hand so that I can bring water in 5 gallon bottles.
- Working Sewer System? - - It's important to know if there's a working sewer system because I can flush some trauma scene debris down the toilet. It is always my first choice the flush blood down the toilet whenever possible. If you doing it yourself, and I do have a page on do it yourself blood cleanup, then be sure to use the toilet. Just be careful not to cause the toilet to plug up.
- Children, Adults, Animals Present? - - I like to know who's going to be present during cleaning. I prefer to use a side door back door so that I do not disturb residents. It's good to know if pets are in the building two. Pets can become a real problem when I moving in and out that the building.
- Carpet Involved? - - It's good to know beforehand if the carpet is involved. We no longer clean carpets that have been soiled by human blood. Each is no way to do a blood cleanup for carpet that's been soaked with blood. The blood must be cut out, the carpet must be properly handle and disposed of. It is my practice to use bleach on carpets that have been soiled by blood. Just the same, carpet goes into a black bag and then a red bag as needed.
- Bed Involved? - - Blood-soaked bed which often occur occurs following a suicide or unattended death upon a mattress require special handling. The mattress must be "reduce" in this means to remove the blood and other potentially infectious materials. Once done, the mattress can be removed from the premises. Likewise, sheets, pillowcases, pillows, and blood-soaked blankets can be removed. In some cases families will want to keep some of the blood-soaked materials, which is not recommended. But in some cases where there is slight blood spray, these items can be placed in a washing machine for washing on hot with a lot of soap and bleach.
- Understanding the Risks of Human Blood Cleanup in California - -
- Odors from blood, death scenes, are not hazardous to human health. At worse, these odors will cause nausea in people who are unfamiliar to the many fragrances associated with death cleanup. So if a California blood cleanup company employee told you that these odors are dangerous, they were either misinformed or lying. Sometimes police officers will say something like this, "you need to get somebody in here to clean this up." Whether they think the odors are dangerous or not, we cannot know. It is my feeling that they recommend a professional blood cleanup practitioner because the suppose it's a horrific scene. As such, it may be possible to experience some kind of psychological trauma. Otherwise, I don't know why people say that these scenes are dangerous.
- These are dangerous to the blood cleanup practitioner at times. Most serious among these dangers are a puncture wound from an object soiled by human blood. Course there's always blood splash, but blood splash is rare. The most risky part of any cleaning project, whether in a home, hospital, medical clinic, dental office, or other environment with human blood exposure, there is always a risk. The risk is from contamination by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and possibly other issues. Among these would be something terrible like bola, but where a bowl is current, I would not expect any went into the building once medical authorities were aware of the situation. Not anyone can do blood cleanup were Ebola is present, in any case.

We learn to fear blood and other human substances. Note that a toddler shows little if any fear of human blood unless they become injured and bleed. Once a relationship becomes known by a toddler that their injury precedes bleeding or that bleeding indicates the magnitude of an injury, concern, and fear grows for human blood. Red, sticky, wet, and "gross," become associated with human blood in general before long toddlers learn to understand that the appearance of blood on a sidewalk indicates injury to themselves or peers.
As we mature, we learn that blood also flows in the body of fish, birds, mammals, insects, and that every person on earth needs blood to survive. It takes little time for a child to learn that side of blood from the wound may lead to a filling faintness. Blood loss by another sometimes leads to faintness. We need to recognize that this feeling soon passes for those professionals involved in the medical field. For them, human blood becomes a daily sight, as well as its odors. That putrid, yet sweet like odor soon turns the stomach of the uninitiated, but for the professionals, exposure to human blood soon overcomes faintness and fear of blood.
Symbolically, the word "blood" soon became a commonplace symbol for Karen, sharing, violence, and even relationships, "blood kin." Blood became a life-giver once humanity learns that blood transfusion offered a way to save those of us suffering traumatic injuries. Many American soldiers' lives saved during the world war, thanks to blood transfusion. For example, on Iwo Jami during the second world war, United States Marine Corps began its first direct whole blood transfusion to wounded Marines. Contrarily, in Nazi Germany because of its racist ideology, human blood was not transfused to save lives until after the war. The idea was that the "purity of the German race" was at risk by "tainted blood from foreigners."
Even the barbershop pole with its dynamic twisting and turning red, blue, white stripes symbolized blood. It happened that in the Middle Ages when bloodletting served as the leading practice to cure disease and illness, barbers bled their patients. So when one became sick, a barber was called when visited the Barber.
We know that "blood brothers" become very close friends as well as supporters. The phrase "bad blood between them" means a negative relationship exists between two or more people. Then "bluebloods" signified members of a royal or powerfully wealthy family. Because of their "blood," the ruling classes looked down their noses at the ordinary people, peasants, workers, the proletariat.
A "blood oath" becomes a promise never to break one's word. Children are known to spare the blood on one another to signify that blood oath that they believe the American Indian share. "Cold-blooded" means someone who has no feelings or compassion, similar to a psychopath or social path. Then there's "bloodthirsty," a term this term is used to describe barbarism, the rulers of countries that regularly attack others. "Bloodbaths" signify a massacre, which may mean a mass murder by an individual, a rifle platoon, or an army. In these days of high-powered assault weapons on our United States streets, we can easily foresee bloodbaths in the future.
Riverside County blood cleanup companies cleaned up human blood following a terrorist on innocent visitors to an unemployment office; assault rifles caused terrible wounds and significant loss of blood.
Because of gang warfare in Los Angeles County, most Los Angeles County blood cleanup companies receive telephone calls to clean up blood following homicides. It turns out the Los Angeles County gangs have recently slowed their pace of mass murderers and serial murderers. Nevertheless, over the years, Los Angeles County like cleanup companies and profited mightily from their crony relationships with Los Angeles County corners employees.
An "ick" response to blood lead to the production of vampire movies in Los Angeles County. In fact, Hollywood became the world center for producing vampire in zombie movies. Before long, bloodsoaked victims of zombie attacks became common scenes on weekly television productions. The Walking Dead became a worldwide phenomenon, although its producers prefer doing business in the state of Georgia rather than Los Angeles County. Los Angeles County production requires union contracts, and the city of Los Angeles is less willing and less able to provide the infrastructure and many country settings needed for mass blood and death scenes.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles County blood-sucking vampire movie production has done well. Generally, most people tend to dislike the idea of red fluid filling up their bodies. So we do have a moment to pause whenever thinking about blood. We know that worldwide, red became the color warning in danger. From stop signs to stop lights to fire engines, even ambulances display flashing red lights, all of which we may assume somehow signify blood. As a result, the sight of blood causes many of us to stop what we're doing and pay attention.
Los Angeles County blood cleanup company employees soon learn that the complexity of blood exceeds their expectations. New to the job of blood cleanup, new employees soon learn that blood has a strong adhering property. Blood has a "cascading effect" that leads to its strong glue- like sticking power.
The power of blood keeps millions of species alive while delivering fresh oxygen to their cells. It helps to protect us from disease and illnesses while sweeping waste from our organs soon after our birth. Los Angeles County medical researchers discover something new about blood almost every day. In fact, the last 100 years, Los Angeles County medical scientists shared in the knowledge that blood becomes more amazing, the longer they study it.
Under a microscope, blood appears as more than a simple red fluid. It becomes very complex and contains many parts. It's parts, its components, consistent plasma, a pill, gold- like colored liquid. It makes up about half of our blood. Roughly 90% of our plasma consists of water. So this should tell us how important it is to drink water, especially after losing a lot of blood as soldiers might do in a battle. The watery portion of plasma helps keep us going by creating a free-flowing pathway for nutrients to her organs and cells. In a sense, the plasma becomes like a river. Our blood parts float throughout our bodies, our veins, and capillaries. Our capillaries, by the way, Kerry oxygenating gases while being scary deoxygenated dances. Blood consists of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets floating around as they sail through the bodies of many capillaries and veins.
The red blood cells appear around when seen through a microscope. They appear partly flattened and carry hemoglobin. Hemoglobin serves us as a protein, and proteins contain elements of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, just like the atmosphere. So living beings use proteins to carry nutrients and to trigger our biological processes. Hemoglobin contains iron as well. Iron atoms attract oxygen atoms. We breathe oxygen while excelling nitrogen. So we know how important oxygen becomes to our blood flow and life. Trees and plants happily suck up nitrogen with ther stomata, and then return the used carbon dioxide as oxygen to the atmospherre. We then breathe it again.
In red blood cells in our lungs, we know that our hemoglobin carries oxygen throughout our body, then. Red blood cells appear like a tiny desk when seen through a microscope, and they have slight depressions found in their center. The greater the amount of oxygen in the cells, the brighter red they appear. Half of our blood consists of red blood cells, and hemoglobin gives blood its red color.
And what about white blood cells? From microscopes, we learn that about one white blood cell has about 600 red blood cells as counterparts. About This means that about 1% of our blood consists of white blood cells. White blood cells live for only a couple weeks, by the way. They play a very important role in fighting disease and illness. Because we have so few white blood cells, they have no discernible effect on our blood color. These tiny bodyguards eat bacteria and dead cells while fighting off parasites. So they have a full-time job, we might think. They tell our body when it needs to protect itself, too. Like tiny attack dogs, they carried DNA, and we know that DNA codes are body structure.
Blood platelets also flow through our veins and arteries. Blood platelets have shapes like tiny plates, and they account for the smallest percentage of blood particles. Blood platelets account for blood coagulation following an injury. So we really duo our lives to these blood platelets when we cut ourselves. Before following long exposure to air, why platelets roll up and begin a chemical reaction that clogs the floor blood their injuries.
Besides proteins in our blood, vitamins and glucose (a type of sugar) helped to derision bodies and fight off disease. Adults generally have about 1 gallon of blood in their bodies. Because of its many constituents, we consider blood as more than a liquid. We consider it as a tissue. We define a "tissue" as in a grouping of cells that work together and perform a function, or which may create a certain body part. Or example, the heart and lungs and skin consist of different types of tissue. In the world of all San Angelo's County medical research, researchers consider blood as a certain kind of tissue, even though it has a very fluid light nature.
Note that when Los Angeles County lead researcher spends blood around quickly in a centrifuge, the blood separates into three main parts. Based on their weight, these three parts become separated as if in a hierarchy of weights. For example, the bottom segment shows 45% of the blood mass in total. A bag of blood consists of the heavy elements that contain red blood cells and hemoglobin. In the middle part of this hierarchy, we will find nearly 1%, the white blood cells, and platelets.
Although less heavy than the heavier blood cells, they show their weight by gathering in the middle of this centrifuged liquid. The name of this portion of the fluid we know as a "buff color." This off-white we know as "plasma." So overall, we find red blood on the bottom, white button in the middle, and plasma on the top. These three portions make up the "whole board."
Los Angeles County blood cleanup practitioners mostly remain concerned with red blood. In course, they must because this written blood signifies the substance when cleanup service callers have in mind. The loss of human blood means a loss of blood from a vast network called the cardiovascular system.
Our cardiovascular system consists of the heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries. In Los Angeles County, blood researchers know that this network is known as the "circulatory system" includes both the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system serves as a great part of our immune system and helps to drain excess fluids from our organs. Usually, when we talk about the blood's circulatory system, we include the lymphatic system as part of the discussion.
