Why you shouldn't clean up after a death yourself.
Can you imagine the unthinkable happening, a family member dies in your home which results in a hazardous bloody mess? And then it gets worse. The local police department doesn’t have the resources to assist you in cleaning and putting your home back together. Your home is now possibly contaminated with biological hazards carried in blood and bodily fluids. Your whole family is now not only traumatized by the scene, but is also at risk for inhaling bloodborne pathogens that are microscopic and floating in the air or harboring on hard surfaces. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Did you know that hepatitis can survive in a deceased person for up to 16 days after death, depending on the temperature and surrounding environment? A person’s first thought might be to take out the bleach and start cleaning. What they don’t realize is that the blood and bodily fluids have seeped deep into the flooring, all the way to the foundation. The blood and bodily fluids also absorb into the walls and if not cleaned properly, will begin smelling in time. A blood indicator is not a common household item within easy access that can be sprayed on the scene to indicate presence of blood not seen by the naked eye. Fortunately, many people go a lifetime without having to experience the smell of a dead or decomposing body. It is a smell that is not easily forgotten. The stench not only takes over the home, but infiltrates the neighbor’s homes as well as the environment.
