Blood Everywhere

10/23/2018 (Permalink)

i am the owner of an apartment building in a college town. My tenants are always locking themselves out or giving keys to others and then not having them when they need to get in. I had a gentleman try to "remove" a window to get into his apartment. Well as you can imagine this didn't go well and he cut himself very badly! I had a neighbor call me and say "there is blood everywhere" I thought he might be a bit dramtic but when I got there I saw that he was not! This young man had indeed gotten blood everywhere before he was taking to the local hospital. I asked the emergency personal if they had anything to clean it with and they suggested that I call SERVPRO of DeKalb County, They explained that they are certified in trauma clean up and would get it done quickly for me while also being able to board up the window until I could get it repaired. The crew from SERVPRO came out and helped me. They cleaned the blood and made sure it was safe for the tenants to go back into the apartment. They also boarded up the window and gave me the name of a glass company they recommended. All of this was done in a short time frame and got me home in time for dinner.
