Pasadena family business cleans up after injuries and accidents
August 17, 2010
ANNAPOLIS, MD — For Karen, Brett and the other employees of Bio-Scene Solutions of Pasadena, the job always begins where something awful ends; after authorities arrive to remove most of a deceased''s remains in a zipped-up body bag, they''re there to pick up the pieces, according to The Capital.
"This is someone''s family, and we''re always very sorry for their loss," Karen said. "Someone has to be there to clean it up. We do it with dignity."
Since 2007, Bio-Scene Solutions has decontaminated sites after incidents as minor as a nose bleed on a light rail car or someone''s busted colostomy bag to dog-fighting arenas, homicides, suicides and unattended deaths, the article noted.
According to the story, compared to many other kinds of start-ups, Karen''s was a fairly low-cost commitment; rather, the commitment that matters more in her line of work is the one to her stomach''s fortitude.
Though blood splatters don''t make her squeamish, she admits to having a sensitive nose, one that sometimes renders her on the verge of vomiting, even in her double-filtered mask, the article stated.
According to the article, the average person may not think that crime-scene cleaning could be a growing field, as there aren''t a lot of "repeat customers," but Karen has aspirations for expanding her business, exploring the options of getting into body removal and receive training on handling rodents and other animals.
