The impact of a unattended death, violent or otherwise, can be overwhelming for those left behind.
When you discover that a loved one has unknowingly passed away while they were alone, reality begins to rapidly settle in. Emergency personnel will be on site to assess the scene, confirm cause of death and remove the body. Once law enforcement and emergency personnel are all wrapped up, the authorities will “release the scene.” By now, you are probably long overdue for some time to properly grieve and find a way to move forward, but wait– it’s not over. You have to find a way to clean up the scene before you can begin to move forward.
Various factors and conditions can really affect the aftermath of a unattended death, whether it’s death from trauma, crime, suicide or otherwise, the reality is that someone has to clean it up. Cleaning up after an unattended death may not be as simple as scrubbing down the floors, throwing out a few items and washing down the rest.
Unattended death and body decomposition cleanups are emotionally stressful AND hazardous if completed improperly by someone without the proper training, knowledge and personal protection. Biological residue, dangerous chemicals, deadly pathogens and other contaminants may be present, and may require specialized retrieval and disposal techniques. A surface cleaning may overlook unseen blood and body fluids which, if left undetected, could cause infection or spread disease. Special permits may be necessary to transport and dispose of hazardous biological wastes.
