Cleaning After Dead Body Removal

No one anticipates having to have a dead body removed, nor does anyone expect having to deal with cleanup after a death. But, both of these tasks are grim realities for some. When it comes to cleaning up after a body is removed, you need to be careful because there could be body fluids and decomposition matter left behind that can be dangerous. However, a professional bioremediation company such as Aftermath can disinfect an area and return it to a safe condition.

Ensuring Safety After a Dead Body is Removed

After a dead body is removed, the next step is to ensure safety of current and future tenants. Several potentially dangerous aspects of a scene can affect functionality and safety, the most common being structural damage, and bloodborne pathogens.

Structural damage can occur to buildings in several ways. A crime scene may leave behind punctured drywall or shattered glass. Chemicals, blood, and other body fluids from a decomposing body can seep into the subflooring and other porous materials. Even if an area appears to be clean after a dead body is removed, it might not actually be clean. A dead body can affect a site within minutes of death.

Perhaps the most damaging component of a scene after a dead body is removed is the potential presence of bloodborne pathogens, which are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. Because bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and MRSA could be lurking, it’s best to call a professional bioremediation company to clean, disinfect, and restore the site.
