As we near the end of Mental Health Awareness month, the Bio-One NW Indianapolis team reflects on the important factors. Recognizing various types of mental health situations, communicating with families, and helping people solve problems to get their life back together are just a few important traits that must be understood. Bio-One NW Indianapolis specializes in not only the technical aspect of cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting, but helping our clients along the way. With 40+ years of experience, our owner knows first hand how helping people solve their problems can change lives. 

 

Why is Mental Health Awareness Important?

Mental health is an important and crucial element to your well-being that sometimes gets overlooked. We are often taught how to take care of our bodies, but what about our minds? This is what controls all of the functions in our bodies, tells us when to eat, when to sleep, and releases all the hormones that keep us happy, motivated, and operating in a healthy way. 

How can Bio-One NW Indianapolis help?

As previously mentioned, our owner has 40+ years of helping people solve problems. Our team takes time to personalize, tailor, and customize our approach to each individual client. We work at a pace that puts you at ease, while pushing towards the ultimate goal, helping you get control back. Whether we are called for junk removal, decluttering a home, cleanup of a biohazard blood situation, or remediating cat urine, our objective remains the same. We want you to be comfortable and we want to solve your problem. We do well with the situations we handle, but we also do good by our clients. We live by the Bio-One motto, "Help First, Business Second."

How can you learn more?

Why is Blood so difficult to clean?

Feb. 16 2021 by Michael Weinblatt

When coming across a scene where blood is present, it can be very intimidating. Not only is blood dangerous to come in contact with, it is very stubborn to clean and disinfect. Bio One NW Indianapolis specializes in blood cleanup and disinfection. 

 

Why is blood so hard to clean?

Blood's ability to stain fabric, seep into materials such as floors or walls, and it's ability to bind into anything it comes in contact with, makes it very difficult to clean and disinfect.

 

Why is blood so dangerous? 

Blood borne pathogens pose many risks to health such as HIV, HPV, HCV, and many others. When blood is present, anyone has a risk to exposure. It is important to know the ability that blood poses as a risk to health and safety. It is also dangerous to be near blood, because if in the vicinity of blood, it is possible for blood borne pathogens to come in contact through inflation.

 

Why trust Bio-One NW Indianapolis?

At Bio-One NW Indianapolis, we use special chemicals to help not only clean, but disinfect blood no matter what material it is on. We also use sophisticated PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), such as respirators, gloves, booties, and biohazard suits, etc. Our certified technicians have received training on how to handle situations such as this, as well plenty of first hand experience.

Animal hoarding is something that is more common than you might realize. Sometimes you will hear about it in the news, magazines and social media. You will hear how the animals were rescued and the person who is responsible for their mistreatment has charges against them. But what happens to the animals? Who rescues them and what do they go through? What happens to the home? 

 

Once the animals are rescued from the home, there is a lot of hard work that needs to be done to make the home habitable again. There are many companies that do clean out homes from hoarding situations. However, there is 1 company that is preferred, and that is Bio-One. Bio-One works hand in hand with rescues to make sure all animals are out safely. When there are very young puppies, kittens or elderly animals, they like to hide. So it takes care and focus to look for these animals and get them out of the home into the rescues arms safely. Also, Bio-One always has a staff member on site that is trained in animal rescue and pet first aid in case an emergency situation occurs. While this is taking place, Bio-One is also removing debris, feces, urine, damaged items and anything else that needs to go. Many times there is thousands of dollars in damage in the home. Making sure you have a company that cares is very important because these situations are very sensitive. 

 

The last piece of the equation is mental health. Hoarding is recognized as a disease and should be treated as so. People who hoard need physiological help or they will most likely revert back to hoarding. Do not turn your back on them, offer them help. The other people who may need a therapist to talk to are the rescuers. They see a part of humanity that many do not want to acknowledge is there or do not understand. They see abuse, death and trauma daily. Yet, they do it day after day. The psychological tole that takes is huge.

 

So what can you do to help? 

 

First, if you are looking for a new pet, please consider adopting from a rescue. It is so rewarding and helps save a life. 

 

Second, if you are looking to volunteer, please call your local animal rescue to volunteer with them. Most rescues are looking for fosters, adoption specialists, comfort volunteers to sit or play with the animals, and many other things.   

 

Third, donate to your local rescue. Blankets, food, litter and toys are common things you can easily buy that a rescue can use.  Fourth, if you know someone is a hoarder, please say something to them gently and with love. Offer them support. 

 

If you have any questions you can reach out to us at any time. We are always here to help.

HOW LONG CAN GERMS LIVE ON SURFACES

 

When a loved one dies by suicide, it’s fair to assume that first responders will decontaminate the scene. But they don’t, creating yet another dilemma for families who are freshly traumatized by a sudden and devastating loss. Driven to remove the memory of the death from your home as quickly as possible, your first impulse may be to clean the space yourself. But there are several reasons why you shouldn’t take on this burden.

For one, suicide cleanup is a traumatic and overwhelming experience of its own. Although you may think you can push through this task by suppressing your emotions, you’re at risk of developing PTSD and prolonging your grief. It's best to avoid the scene and leave this process to the professionals.

Additionally, you may be subject to harmful diseases if you don’t clean up the scene properly. Over-the-counter cleaning supplies are not always strong enough to kill some of these viruses. Pathogens linger long after a surface has been scrubbed, leaving you and your family at risk of developing bloodborne infections like Hepatitis C and HIV if your cleaning process has not been thorough enough.

Certified specialists in biohazard remediation are the only people qualified to perform this intensive work. They know the commonly missed areas, and how to keep themselves safe while making the home safe again for the family. Let them restore your home with the assurance that it will be sanitary.

Bio-One is here to help in this regard. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need assistance. We’re on standby 24/7, every day of the year, and are always available to answer any questions you might have.
