Discovering an unattended death or a decomposing body can be a traumatic and emotional experience, especially if the person was a loved one. Cleaning up an unattended death can be every more traumatic and intense. Restoration Local offers discreet and sensitive cleanup after an unattended death. Following federal and state guidelines for cleanup, our biohazard cleanup teams will decontaminate after an undiscovered death and prevent cross-contamination.

What is an Unattended Death

An unattended death occurs when a person dies alone in their home and their body is not discovered for days, weeks, or even months. Some unattended deaths may be due to natural causes, especially if the deceased person was elderly.Undiscovered deaths may also occur due to a tragic accident, a sudden health issue such as a heart attack, a suicide, or a homicide. Cleaning up after an unattended death can be an overwhelmingly emotional process. There are also potential health risks involved in the cleanup process.

Cleaning Up a Decomposing Body or an Unattended Death

Unattended deaths can be both emotional and gruesome, as the body most likely has begun to decompose. Depending on the extent of the decomposition process, the body could release bodily fluids that contain harmful pathogens. There may also be significant insect or vermin activity around the body if the decomposition has advanced significantly.Once the body has been removed from the area by the appropriate law enforcement personnel, our biohazard cleanup professionals will begin remediating the scene. Our process starts with cleaning up any blood, bodily fluids, and other remaining biological matter still on the scene.Our unattended death cleanup process is discreet, thorough, and complies with federal and state standards for disposing of biohazardous waste. This includes using a variety of cleaners and equipment to decontaminate the scene to prevent further contamination. If necessary, they will also remove and dispose of contaminated furniture, carpeting, bedding or any belongings.

Odor Removal After an Unattended Death

One of the most significant characteristics of an undiscovered death is the distinctive odor that results from the decomposition process. This odor is very strong and can permeate furniture, flooring, and even personal belongings. Using both chemical deodorizers and ozone treatments, we can remove offensive odors associated with unattended deaths and decomposing bodies.
