Unattended death cleanup, also known as body decomposition cleanup, is much more common than most people realize. The moment an individual dies, the body immediately begins to decompose. The decomposition process is much faster in hot or humid environments. Bodies found in this state can be difficult for loved ones to handle, as the remains act as an unpleasant reminder of the passing. Fortunately, the professionals at Spotless Crime Clean provide quick, thorough, and affordable unattended death cleanup services to assist in returning the involved environment to a safe and inhabitable state. Body decomposition can be very dangerous to the environment in which it occurs, as well as the physical health of others who expect to utilize the affected area in the future. This is due to the fact that when a body decomposes, the fluids within the body leak onto the surrounding area. This fluid will often times smell very bad and will affect sub-floors, mattresses, clothes, carpet, and other objects within the vicinity of the deceased.
We often get asked why can’t you just wipe up the area and “get rid of the smell”. This is because getting rid of the evidence on the surface does not solve the entire problem. The number one thing you can do to get rid of an odor is to remove the source. While some companies promise to perform a “wipe down” of the surface that will get rid of the problem, this is only a temporary solution. A few weeks or months later the smell returns, and those living in the home afterwards become sick. The proper cleanup must occur from the start and must be handled by experts who understand the complexities of bio-cleaning.
Additionally, when a body decomposes it begins to attract unwanted insects that ingest the body fluids and transport them through house. This serves to spread the issue outside of the main area. If the heat or A/C is on, particles break down and can become airborne. This will leave a film on floors and walls which will also need to be removed. Body decomposition cleanup is never a simple task or a quick procedure, some simply choose to quit before the job is done. Our experts will never leave a task unfinished, no matter how big the mess becomes.
Unattended death cleanup is a serious issue that cannot be left in the hands of a novice. Body fluids can contain disease and must be cleaned up thoroughly to be done right. Improper cleaning could lead to eventual bacteria and mold growth, as well as many other potential threats. We perform every job the correct way, by removing layer after layer of material until we no longer find any bio-matter.
Many insurance adjusters themselves do not understand why work cannot be done with just a wipe down, and for this reason we take pictures as documentation every step of the way. The process can be slow and tedious but must be done precisely to guarantee the bio-hazards are gone, the technicians are safe, and their exposures are reduced.
