Unattended Death Cleanup

Situations like this happen more often than one would think. When a person has passed away the body starts to decompose within 15 minutes the warmer the temperature the quicker the decomposition is. We can help with the odors and cleanup abiding by OSHA standards and safely cleaning the home for the family.

Unattended death cleanup is a specialized service that involves the cleaning and remediation of a property where an unattended death has occurred. An unattended death refers to a situation where an individual dies alone and their body is not discovered for an extended period of time, typically days, weeks, or even longer. During this time, decomposition of the body occurs, leading to a potentially hazardous and biohazardous environment.

Unattended death cleanup is a complex and delicate process that requires the expertise of trained professionals. Here are some key aspects involved in the cleanup:

1. Biohazard remediation: Unattended deaths often result in the release of bodily fluids, blood, and other potentially infectious materials into the surrounding environment. Professional cleanup technicians follow strict protocols to safely remove and dispose of these biohazards. They use personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves from potential health risks.

2. Odor removal: The decomposition process can cause strong and unpleasant odors to permeate the area. Specialized equipment and techniques, such as ozone generators or thermal fogging, may be used to eliminate or neutralize these odors.

3. Sanitization and disinfection: All affected surfaces and materials, including furniture, flooring, walls, and personal belongings, need to be thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and disinfected to eliminate any potential pathogens or biohazards. This helps restore the property to a safe and habitable condition.

4. Structural restoration: In some cases, the decomposition process can cause damage to the property, such as staining or contamination of flooring, walls, or other structural elements. Cleanup professionals may work to restore these areas or coordinate with other specialists as needed.

It’s important to note that unattended death cleanup is a sensitive and emotionally challenging task. Cleanup companies often work with compassion and respect for the affected individuals and their families. They may also work discreetly to maintain privacy and confidentiality.
