While I don't know if anyone has ever seen the movie above (Sunshine Cleaning) - I can tell you that it is a funny, quirky film about a family that gets involved in the 'cleaning' business - after crime, suicide and unattended death. (Odd, in my opinion, but definitely worth a viewing) While it is a rather disturbing subject to think about, it is definitely a very necessary service. As I was driving along yesterday, I saw a white van with the words "Aftermath, Inc." on the side.
Curious at this rather unusual company name I did a quick bit of research. Turns out they are a real world "Sunshine Cleaning" business.
From their website:
Aftermath Inc provides professional services for blood clean up, death clean up, homicide clean up, suicide clean up, unattended death clean up, accident & injury clean up, industrial accident clean up, vehicle/automobile clean up, hoarding & filth clean up and tear gas remediation.
Definitely not a job for me, but I'm thankful there is somebody out there who will do this. A book has even been written about their business:
At work today, I was particularly appreciative of my job - I had an "ohnosecond". I'd made a particularly bad mistake about the orientation of a part. Fortunately, two of my employers were able to provide a quick and simple remedy to my situation. Besides - after thinking about Aftermath, Inc., my job is a breeze...
