Fecal Incontinence Cleanup Narrative

Feces cleanup for fecal incontinence in service for Riverside County families and businesses; offered by Eddie Evans, comes with a cleaning guarantee. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the cleaning provided, then I will return. There is no additional charge. Simply call and I will return.

It should be enough that toilet related issues that cost money should be done without causing stress. We know that as we age, seniors are more prone to lose their physical agility as well as control of their bowels. We know the man no longer have that ability to stop urinating on command. We know that many "senior citizens" are need of diapers. It should be no wonder, then, when some of us defecate without control.

Two days ago this writer, Eddie Evans, did what I call a "fecal incontinence feces cleanup" task. What happened was a 78-year-old Alzheimer's patient lost control of his bowels. He was not wearing his diaper when he got up out of bed to make his way to the toilet. As a result he defecated upon his bed sheet, the carpet leading from his bed to his bathroom hallway, and from his bath room hallway into the bathroom. There, before he could completely turn and positioned himself over the toilet, you have a total loss of control.

His poor wife was overwhelmed with his Alzheimer's behaivor it was, and she cleaned after her husband as loyally and mightily as anyone; human feces cleanup is tough when it relates to incontinence cleaning. As a result she asked friends what to do. A neighbor recommended that someone use the Internet to look up feces cleanup or incontinence cleanup. As a result the family found me. Since the family called from Riverside County late afternoon, I could not make the drive without undue risk and time delays; I made arrangement to arrive in Riverside County the next moring.

I arrived in Riverside County at 6 AM. I make a point of asrriving early and then waiting. Riverside County offers many places to visit in the morning. So I made my way to the local Denny's to have breakfast. Sometimes I make my way to the local Home Depot to fly more cleaning supplies, bid my time, and maybe even go for a short walk. On this morning I made a visit to Denny's. In any case, I arrived at eight, and handed my business card to the nursing wife; then I made my way into the feces soiled bedroom and bathroom. There I found what appeared to be a total loss of fecal control. Incontinence in this case brought the poor Alzheimer's patient's wife to her wits end. I could easily see why she was overwhelmed.

It took me about 90 minutes to return this fecal soil bathroom to its earlier condition. As is the case in most incontinence cleanup tasks, I hardly knew where to begin. As is my experience, I just said to myself, "don't despair," and started in the bedroom and slowly made your way toward the bathroom." That's what I did. I cleaned and recleaned. I also disinfectant on soiled areas and surrounding areas.

At times I use a fogger to disinfect wide areas, but I must be careful when using a fogger because I cannot control the fog's migration through a room. Since it has disinfectants in it I don't want it touching furniture. However, I find flogging a bathroom after a major incontinence cleanup returns a bathroom to a hygienic condition quickly without question.

Approaches I sometimes use for incontinence cleanup:

  • Incontinence cleanup requires pretreating soiled areas with appropriate chemicals.
  • Incontinence cleanup may require cleaning and disinfecting both low feces soiled areas and high pieces soiled areas. ICC soiled areas include grip rails attached to bathroom walls, doors and door knobs, and light switches. Even door frames and walls of size is 5 feet will need fecal cleanup.
  • Incontinence cleanup requires replacement of toilet paper, bathroom towels, and possibly a quick bathtub cleanup. Sometimes feces cleanup of the bathtub is required because of vehicle discharge during a shower.
  • Incontinence cleanup requires a thorough cleaning of a toilet whether or not it appears in need of cleaning. It is the case that at times a person suffering and incontinence will have relieved themselves uncontrollably while defecating on another occasion. Unbeknown-st to their caregiver, and area not easily seen while standing have been swell by feces.

What I Ask Riverside County Residents

  • Parking is an important issue because I have equipment, tools, and chemicals in the back of my truck and will need to carry these to the cleaning scene.
  • We should settle on how payment will be made before I arrived.
  • We should agree on the arrival time.
  • I prefer annoying if pets will be in the premises during the fecal incontinence cleanup process.
  • I need to know if the home or building will have running water, electricity, and working toilet.

Riverside County Fecal Incontinence Cleaning Prices

I cannot offer fecal incontinence cleaning services for less than $350 minimum. In the past I tried in the early went out of business. Not only the cost of to do in vehicles fueled and maintenance with decent tires, but insurance cost so much money there is a list of so my expenses:

  • Vehicle insurance
  • Cleaning business insurance
  • Gasoline, oil, tires, vehicle maintenance (I paid $800 to have a fuel pump replaced on December 1, 2018) for example. I paid about $1000 for a set of tires in 2018.
  • Cost of cleaning chemicals, tools, and equipment,

Because I live in Cypress, California I am almost that what I call "a sweet spot" for infectious waste cleaning services. I say a "sweet spot" because I reside on the border of Los Angeles and Orange counties along what we call "Coyote Creek." This is about as close to being near a center for dispatching myself to Riverside County, San Bernardino County, San Diego County, and Ventura County. I also service Bakersfield. But I cannot profit by going beyond these limits. As it is, I'm usually on the edge of quitting at times. One accident and it will have all been for nothing.

Riverside County Price Variation

Most of my Riverside County incontinence cleaning remains at a steady $350 for service charge. However, there are occasions when this price must go up and does go up because of one for scenes. Otherwise, the price remains as advertised. In those cases involving a home or building without electricity, I charge for bringing my own generator to produce electricity. When water is not available, I miss charge for bringing water alone. But it is rare that I need to bring a generator or water, although I'm prepared to do so for a fee.

Cleaning Solutions, Tools, Equipment -

I use over-the-counter cleaning solutions from Home Depot most of the time. I may go to an Ace Hardware store or a Lowe's hardware store on occasion. Usually when I reach an urban area I find a Lowe's or Ace Hardware store.

I use the following chemicals because they can be found by families and businesses:

  • Simple green,
  • Pine-Sol,
  • household bleach,
  • rubbing alcohol
  • electric fogger
  • scrubbing broom
  • construction trash-bags

Riverside County Incontinence Cleanup Cleaning Comments

Often times when I arrive at a Riverside County home for incontinence cleaning, someone is usually embarrassed by the loss of their fecal content due to incontinence. Rather than try to say there's no reason to be "embarrassed." I simply leave it alone. My comments would only add to the uncomfortable situation that is often experienced by people when I arrived for incontinence cleanup.

I tried to be as objective and keep the nature of incontinence of mine. As an older male I know exactly what's going on with urinary issues for males. I can only guess what it is like are going to be like myself if and when incontinence becomes a for myself.

As a biohazard cleanup practitioner with over 17 years in the business, I've seen just about everything I'm going to see at least once. And when it comes to fecal incontinence, feces cleanup, it is not likely I'm going to see anything new. Granted, I may see some new cleaning conditions, but I expect that.

In Riverside County hospitals it's not infrequent that we hear the term fecal incontinence or animal incontinence and it's referred to as a form of encopresis. This means there is a lack of control when it comes to defecate in. It is an involuntary loss of bowel matter. Fiatus (gas) often occurs along with the liquid release of stool and mucus. We use the term "stool because it is the medical term. It arises actually from a 17th century use of a three-legged stool placed over a ceramic or clay pot use to hold feces until it can be dumped in a common area for public use. These pots, known as "chamber pots," were emptied by chambermaid's for the upper-middle-class and aristocracy. Other folks got to remove and dump their feces in the common feces: area.

In any case, incontinence results from a number of causes. It may occur following a bout of constipation and a sudden release of the bowel;s contents. It may also occur during an illness involving diarrhea. Food poisoning will bring about diarrhea and then a period of inconsinence. Iirritable bowel syndrome may occur and sometimes the effects of Crohn's disease may exacerbate incontinence. Also rated colitis as well as a food intolerance may lead to incontinence.
