Removing decomposition odors from a home
Any number of things can cause an odor in the home — trauma involving an unattended death, a crime scene, hoarding or even pets. Pungent and overwhelming odors can become toxic, especially if the source is decomposing biological material.
One of the most challenging situations we face as death cleanup and odor removal specialists is unattended death — when a person dies and is not found for days, weeks, or even months. For the family affected, dealing with the aftermath of a death cleanup can be a grim experience. Considering the difficult and disturbing nature of decomposition, as well as the associated health hazards, remediating the situation should be left to professional trauma scene cleaners like Aftermath Services.
If left untreated, even the smallest amount of bacteria can grow and cause serious physical damage within the home. Airborne bacteria may cause lingering odors which, in addition to being unpleasant, can impact both the safety and well-being of future occupants.
