The Challenges of Cleaning Decomposition and Unattended Death Cleanup
One of the most challenging situations we face as death cleanup specialists is the unattended death, which is where a person dies and is not found for days or even months. For the family affected, dealing with an unattended death can be a grim, taxing experience. Considering the difficult and disturbing nature of decomposition, as well as the health hazards associated with blood, bio and potential bloodborne pathogens, remediating the scene of an unattended death is a job for professional trauma scene cleaners like Aftermath, who specialize in blood and biological fluid removal.
If left untreated, even the smallest amount of biological material may lead to serious physical damage within the home. Airborne bacteria cause lingering odors which, in addition to being unpleasant, can impact both the safety and well-being of future occupants. Most people are shocked to realize that a decomposed body can begin to impact a home’s livability in only a few hours in some weather conditions, and certainly within a few days the personal property including furniture, books, clothes and carpeting are forever ruined.

Aftermath local teams are fully insured, experienced bio remediation specialists who wear personal protective equipment and follow approved safety and sanitation procedures to help return the property to a clean, decontaminated state.
