Decomposition Odor and Death Cleanup
One of the most challenging situations we face as death cleanup specialists is the unattended death, when a person dies and is not found for days or even longer. For the family affected, dealing with a death cleanup can be a grim experience. Considering the difficult and disturbing nature of decomposition, as well as the potential health hazards associated, remediating the situation is a job for professional trauma scene cleaners like Aftermath.
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, under some weather conditions. Often within a few days, personal property such as furniture, books, clothes and carpeting are forever ruined.
Sanitizing decomposition & recovering property
Aftermath local teams are fully insured, experienced biohazard remediation and death cleaning specialists who wear personal protective equipment and follow approved safety and sanitation procedures to help return the scene to a clean, decontaminated state. If required, we will remove personal property and affected structural elements such as flooring, and dispose according to biohazard regulations.
Our proprietary BioWash process helps to ensure that all surfaces are fully cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. A Certificate of Treatment is issued in all full-scope BioWash projects, which can be attached to any bill of sale for the property as a guarantee. After the death cleanup process is complete, we use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, the same technology used by hospitals, to verify sanitation level.
We provide unattended death cleanup services to individual families, as well as property managers and commercial accounts. Aftermath expert technicians are available to help you 24/7, so you don’t have to wait a moment longer.
