Recovery and restoration from the unattended death of a loved one can be a lot for any family to handle. The longer the body was left to decompose, the more damage can occur to the home’s structure, putting your family at risk, especially if biohazards are present. Learn more about unattended death and trauma cleanup, and how Aftermath alleviates that burden from your shoulders.
What is Unattended Death?
Unattended death occurs when someone dies without a witness, whether by natural causes, murder, or suicide. One of the biggest concerns with these types of deaths is the length of time that passes from the moment of death to when the body is found.
Though it’s unpleasant to consider, when an individual dies, the decomposition process naturally begins. During decomposition, the body begins self-digesting and bacteria escape the intestinal tract. It can only take a few hours to have your personal property permanently ruined, making it essential for you to hire a professional remediation company to properly handle unattended death restoration.
Move Forward with Aftermath
Each Aftermath team is fully insured and experienced with biohazard remediation and trauma cleaning. We are prepared with protective equipment and follow safety and disinfection procedures to restore the affected areas.
Our disinfection process comes from nearly 20 years of research and experience. It begins with a two-step process of controlling the contamination, and cleaning and removing the biohazard materials and structure. This second step is achieved by:
- Cleaning all traces of dirt, chemicals, blood, biological materials, and personal property that cannot be remediated
- Disinfecting the affected areas with disinfectants, and then wiping all surfaces manually before using adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing to verify sanitation levels
- Deodorizing to eliminate the possibility of lingering odors
