I offer free blood cleanup information.
I run this bloody mattress pickup web site as an add-on to my blood cleanup, biohazard cleanup services. If you have a mattress upon which someone died and bled, then I can help. Homicides, suicides, unattended deaths, and natural death mattress pickup service remains available for most of Southern California.
You will find my writing at Los Angeles Crime Scene Cleanup. Many examples of my blood cleanup writing appear in paragraphs and among its pages. I offer bloody mattress pickup in addition to these other business services. I also offer bloody matter handling information on this web site.
I must receive payment. I'm at risk for going out of business at any time; this means that other families and business will not have my affordable blood cleanup services.
If you're thinking in terms of thousands or even a thousand dollar, you've talked to the wrong blood blood cleanup company. My prices remain very low compared to the Sheriff-Coroner employee's referred blood cleanup companies. (return)
Why the difference?
Because I do not take part in the cronyism ran by Sheriff-Coroner employees from coast to coast. I pay no kickback fee for receiving referrals.
I expect cash payment. A bloody mattress service offers some genuine hazards for this type of business practice. More than once I've had families try to change payment amount and means. I'm at risk for losing time and money on each bloody mattress pickup as a result.
Besides, my bloody mattress fees, like by blood cleanup prices, remain well below my competitors blood cleanup prices for Riverside. Incidentally, not many people offer this bloody mattress pickup service for Riverside. In fact, I may have the only bloody mattress pickup service for Riverside.
My fees are quite low compared to my competitors. It's important to keep in mind, too, that my work during a bloody mattress cleanup is not over when I leave your home. I must still treat and properly dispose of the blood soiled materials. Mattresses contain a lot of material to work with safely.
The difference between a bloody mattress pickup and blood cleanup means anything remaining after a bloody mattress pickup. Such remaining bloody items may include the following:
I offer full service blood cleanup for all of Riverside, which includes cleaning and removing the objects. Otherwise, if called for a "bloody mattress pickup," only, than that's all I do. At times I will remove some blood soiled objects.
To the untrained eye, a death scene on a bed looks pretty well contained. Most often when there's profuse bleeding or decomposition, the blood migrates. So when the decedent bleeds out there's a high probability that blood made its way to the floor below. In such cases, time becomes the crucial matter.
Overnight, we can expect blood to seep through a carpet's two layers of latex to the foam padding below. Given enough time, blood soaks through carpet padding to the wood or concrete floor.
Either a wood floor or concrete floor may require cleaning and disinfecting. At times, this "cleaning" requires sanding and sealing in the case of a wood floor. Some companies remove the floor. I try to keep the floor unless the property owner wishes it removed. In some cases I can replace the portion of floor removed and then place a stain and wax upon this portion.
In the case of concrete, blood does not easily soil, but it can given the porosity of the concrete. For example, concrete poured within the last year may presents migration issues. In the worse cases, this requires a quick grinding and then sealing. In any case, in 15 years I've come up against a serious concrete staining by blood only once, and in a new apartment soiled by an unattended death of some duration.
For removal of additional blood soaked items, a second price beyond bloody mattress pickup follows.
The challenge here requires offering different business models for blood cleanup. Most readers will understand a business exists as an honest endeavor by an intrapreneur in most cases. At least I understood business in these terms not so many years ago.
Now business, as I understand from my lawn mowing and paperboy businesses, exists in the competitive market. In neither of these businesses did I find or expect to find county employees competing with me. I'm sure that my neighbors, peers, and teachers understood that government has its place, and business has its place. These two entities should not overlap. At least, I believed so then and I still believe so.
My perception changed. It changed when I started a blood cleanup business of my own. .
At the time I already had a carpet cleaning business, a power washing business, and a marble polishing business. Seldom did I look for work because I used the Internet successfully in Orange County, California. In fact, I chose to add blood cleanup because I needed to slow down. My age took its tool. Carpet cleaning customers were much too demanding for the little I charged. Many carpets were worn thin and filthy and their owners expected miracles.
So Orange County blood cleanup made sense. I started placing blood cleanup web sites in Orange County, and then Los Angeles County. I followed the same business marketing plan I had used for my other business. I would do well, I figured. Before long I received calls from all over the United States, but not from Orange County, my home county. I could not figure it out. After about six months of silence I received my first call to clean near home, but in Palmdale, California. Pleased, I still needed to drive several hours to the suicide cleanup. Of course I bid low on this job out of fear of losing it.
Three months passed. My other businesses continued to grow because of my Orange County Internet presence. I began to wonder, "Have Orange County's residents and businesses stopped using the Internet?". Of course not, I knew. So I gave the coroner a call. A young woman answered. I explained what I experienced. She replied something like the following:
Oddly enough, my telephone range from a caller in need of an Orange County blood cleanup following a homicide. Homicide cleanup remained a new experience until this time, so again I bid low. I got the job.
Time passed and over the months I began to discern a rhythm. I came to know a blood cleanup monopoly in Orange County blood cleanup business. After all, other companies survived well enough. I could not survive on my Orange County blood cleanup telephone calls. Although I dominated the Los Angeles suicide cleanup and Orange County suicide cleanup Internet pages, I received no Orange County work. Once in a while I did receive Los Angeles suicide cleanup work. These jobs were in low paying, mom-and-pop apartments. No insurance and hardly enough for them to pay their mortgage. As a result I bid low. Some became self-referred as the years passed. They liked my work and my prices.
When it comes to biohazard cleanup involving blood cleanup, I have little trouble getting the work thoroughly completed.
