San Diego County Blood Related Narrative
I'm Eddie Evans. I run my own cleaning business and do the cleaning myself. I guarantee my work and you have it in writing before work begins. In 16 years I've returned to two blood related cleaning jobs. Doing this type of work demands a willingness to return.
I serve San Diego County's blood removal needs every day as needed. Call my telephone at any hour, any day to ask about blood cleanup issues. You need not ask for my services to talk about your blood cleanup situation. Whether a serious traumatic blood loss issues or a death cleanup, I'm here to offer my 17 years experience in the blood cleanup business.
Human blood's odors do not cause disease. Bloodborne pathogens are in blood, not the air.
Biohazards from blood in most places under most conditions has some risk. It's a small risk for those using to wear gloves, mask, bleach, forethought, and caution.
I rarely go over $1,000. For most San Diego blood cleanup work, I offer a low price and a "not to exceed price" based upon our telephone conversation. I will not go lower than the low price in most cases, but it has happened; I will not go over my not-to-exceed price quoted on the telephone. See this blood cleanup information page.
If we could find a statistical average for my basic service charge, it would be $450.; if I arrive and see that the blood cleanup job is more involved than related on the telephone, not uncommon, then I will explain. In any case, you have a low price and not-to-exceed price as quoted on the telephone.
Once I see the blood and other fluid damage, than can give a firm quote, which will not exceed my not-to-exceed price.
My blood removal fee reflects the cost of doing business in California. Besides taxes, I have other recurring business expenses. Business insurance, biohazard insurance (because of the blood involved), vehicle insurance and maintenance, cleaning supplies, equipment, and tools, telephone, and most expensive, marketing. For example, it cost me many hours and many thousands of dollars for families and businesses in need of blood related services to find me on the Internet. I've cleaned blood related incidents all over California. (return)
- Who is the responsible party, the person making payment; the person with authority to open the premises and make decisions?
- Is this cleaning task in a house, condominium, apartment, mobile home, recreational vehicle, other?
- Is this incident related to a handgun, rifle, knife, unattended death.
- Is blood removal needed in a bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, more than one room?
- Is there parking nearby?
- Is it possible to begin early in the day?
- Is running water and electricity available?
- Will anyone be in the premises during cleaning?
- Will pets be in the premises during cleaning?
The responsible party emails my email address and I reply. In this way we both have a clear understanding of when and where I will arrive. I also have in writing what needs cleaning and the responsible party has my name and address.
Most often I arrive early. I prefer to reach my destination a couple hours before my cleaning appointment to ensure that I know where I must clean. I then spend time reading, eating, and visiting Home Depot for cleaning supplies.
When I meet the responsible person I give them my business card. I enter the cleaning area to see what tools and cleaning supplies I need. Blood removal often calls for many different approaches.
Once I begin cleaning I prefer not to have others walk through the area. I prefer good lighting. I bag soiled material and take it with me. I leave nothing behind that has been soiled and clean what can be cleaned. I do make decisions and destroy personal property when I deem it necessary; however, I always check with the responsible party when items of sentimental value are involved, pictures and toys for example.
I do not allow others to work with me, to help. Many times family members and family members have offered to help, but I prefer to work alone. When I absolutely cannot move furnishings from a room or building, I dismantle them. Others should not be exposed to human blood needlessly.
When I'm near completion of my work I ask if someone would care to "check my work" because a "new perspective" is often useful.
I use over-the-counter cleaning products, except in very special circumstances. Most often I use cleaning materials from Home Depot or some other hardware store. The advantages in using over-the-counter cleaning products is clear to me. My customers can easily find these products and read the product contents. They know beforehand that these products kill, reportedly, 99.9% of biohazard terms. There is a short list:
- Peroxide .3 percent
- Clorox bleach
- Clorox cleaning solution
- Rubbing alcohol
- Simple Green
- Rubber gloes
- Face mask (in the beginning)
Do use rubber gloves and a face mask if you do do serious blood cleanup yourself. Use a good, metal dust pan for picking up bloody material, bloody towels, broken glass, and so forth.
You may want to look at the video on the video link or other blood cleanup videos on YouTube if you just to do blood cleanup in your own home.
If you do blood cleanup for yourself or family members then you might be inclined to avoid some of the cautions that a professional blood cleanup practitioners use. This is because the better-known biohazards like HIV (human immunodeficiency) and hepatitis B and hepatitis C do not remain infectious for long when exposed to sunlight or what we call the "wild." However, hepatitis C has been found "alive" in the "wild" after 16 days. In this case the viruse's habitat was not so unlike that found in a petri dish.
The above paragraph may make blood cleanup sound like it's not a big deal and it's not really when you consider that humanity has done blood cleanup in its own dwelling places for thousands of years. Many years ago we simply just kick dirt over the fouling substance. These days we know we must remove it because of voters and its fly drawing contents.Because of the newly discovered bile hazards like HIV and hepatitis C, we become more aware of the hazards out there. Using the right chemicals while controlling fluid runoff should help to ensure safety therein and a blood removal activities. Simply spraying lineage, letting the Lynch dwell, and then reapplying bleach before removing, will help to ensure this in fact in the area.
Paper towels can be used to absorb blood and bleach. Using a dustpan or flat no shovel to pick up the paper towels, a good construction bag from Home Depot will serve for containing the soiled paper towels. Other fabrics can be placed in this bag as well. It's best to triple the bag with construction bags from Home Depot.
For less than $20 you can find everything you need to contain blood soiled materials from fabrics and paper. These can be taken to the landfill. It is always good to let the landfill workers know what you have before entering the landfill. Most county government ran landfills will allow you to drop your bag the other soiled materials there. What a mattresses can go in the county landfill, but it's a good idea to warn or inform County employees which you have. They may charge extra for the "special handling."
My task is to relieve others from cleaning horrific scenes that include homicides, suicides, accidents, unattended deaths, filthy homes, and other bio-waste related scenes.

Odors Related to Blood and Death (What follows may be too graphic and blunt for some XXX readers; however, families doing an unattended death may find some usefule blood and fluid cleanup information.)
Odors begin to diminish within the first 10 to 20 minutes of cleaning. Whether or not blood and death odors reman after cleaning depends upon a number factors.
In the case of a traumatic blood removal not related to human decomposition, we should expect the blood and death odors to dissipitate at completion of blood death removal. Of course, blood soiled materials like clothing and furniture fabrics must be removed too.
In the case an unattended death with significant decomposition, we can expect blood and death odors to linger. In such cases there's a number of vairables that come into play, and any one of them can add to the time required for blood and death odors to fully dissipate beyond the reach of human perception. These include the following and more:
- Time the decedant was down after death;
- Place of death;
- Room temperature;
- Manmade and natural, cellular materials present in the death scene room and throughout the premises --
There's a lot going on and the laws of physics (gravity) and chemistry come into play with great force because of temperatures greater than the decedant's body. Blood flows with heat.
The longer a person remains in place following death, the longer nature's forces cause decomposition to take place and pollute the surrounding environment. Clothing, bedding, pillows, sheets, mattress covers, mattresses, carpet, carpet cushion, flooring, walls, and more can become blood soiled.
Body fluids and other matter related to a death scene release strong chemical reactions that carry power odors into the surrounding area. These odors are the result of bacteria releasing gases, which contain sulfur and uric acid fragrances. The molecules from these gases permiate any fabrics with a cellular structure, like cotton garments and wood products. Likewise, manufactured materials with a cellular structure, like carpet padding (the worse) abosorb these offending gases, blood and death odors.
These odors will not harm us, but they will ruin our lunch and they will cling to our clothing as well as much of the material in a room, if not an entire home.
Most often my cliants have a genuine concern about blood and deoth odors following a human decomposition, an unattended death. They have a genuine concern because at times an unattended death removal in San Diego County may have some serious odor issues because of spring and summer temperatures. It gets hot in Southern California.
In the best of unattended death death removal circumstances (which families have every right to perform in their own homes), an unattended death occurs in a bathroom, on a tiled bathroom floor, and the decedant is down for a hour or so. A small amount of blood may be present (feces will some times be present). A simple application of bleach and water to the floor and quick scrub and rinse will get the job done. Disposable towels can be used for soaking up blood, and when regular bath towels are used, a hot water wash in soapy, bleached water will finish the bathroom's unattended death requirements.
But these are the more simple San Diego County unattended death death removal tasks. At their worse, an unattended death occurs on a king size bed, in the summer, and remain for as long as three weeks if not longer. In such cases we find blood related fluids flow to the floor below and at times migrate across the bedroom floor to soak into drywall. If on a second floor, there's a possibility that some fluids may migrate below the bedroom floor. But these the rare cases, but do occur. The resulting odors are horrendous, even for the experienced blood recovery practitioner.
