Case Studies of Jobs Performed in the Des Moines, IA Area
An unattended death in an apartment or home can lead to serious concerns for property owners or management. If the death scene is not properly remediated, unpleasant odors may linger and harmful bacteria can permanently damage structures or even the health of future residents. Furthermore, owners of the building where such a death occurred may be held liable for the cleanup. While each state has different requirements, Aftermath possesses the highest level of insurance available to trauma scene cleaners anywhere. We also offer a Certificate of Treatment for additional peace of mind.
When a man died in the living room of his apartment in Des Moines, Iowa, the property owner hired Aftermath to conduct a safe and sanitary cleanup of the unit. First, the Aftermath team of technicians removed a living room carpet, contaminated with biological fluids. After disposing of it as medical waste, they thoroughly cleansed and disinfected the concrete subfloor underneath. In order to certify that the apartment was free of any unhealthy bacteria, they applied a reacting agent to the previously affected areas. When the tests came back clean, they applied a finishing touch and fully deodorized the unit. For this landlord and others, Aftermath’s assistance helped protect the owner’s investment and safely prepare the apartment to be rented again.
