Death is a fact of life that we’re all faced with at one time or another. Heartbreakingly, the need for unattended death clean ups are more common than most people are aware of. In most cases, family or friends are not able to reach an individual for a long period of time and through contact with a landlord, property manager or authorities learn that the individual has died.
Unattended deaths are very emotional for family members and friends of the deceased. Biohazard Cleaning has trained and highly skilled unattended death clean up technicians who are compassionate and experienced in assisting individuals in making the necessary decisions regarding their unattended death and biohazard remediation needs. Depending on the time of death and the discovery date of the body, cleaning the aftermath of a death scene can be extremely hazardous. After death, the human body will automatically begin to decompose and liquefy. If a death is undiscovered for some time, there may be a large presence of blood, bodily fluids and other matter which cause irreparable damage to the surfaces of contact.
Biohazard Cleaning technicians are certified in death and biohazard clean-up practices as well as removal and disposal of biohazard materials. Both local and national protocols have been established for these types of death clean-up services and if not followed, can create further contamination and damage to the property. Because of the potential health risks and other dangers associated with unattended death clean ups, untrained individuals should never attempt to clean the aftermath of a death scene. Proper protection protocols must be adhered to at all times to prevent possible contamination to other areas. These scenes also contain trace elements of biohazards that aren’t always visible with the human eye.
If unattended death scenes and blood & bodily fluids are not properly cleaned, you may find your health at risk if you have contact with any contaminants.
