What is Unattended Death?

What is Unattended Death?

When someone dies and his or her passing is undiscovered for a period of time, which may be days or even years, the death is referred to as an unattended death.

An unattended death is very often a traumatic experience for those who discover the death and those who learn that their loved one died alone. To relieve friends, family, and property owners of the difficult task of cleaning up the scene, we offer expert unattended death cleanup services provided with discretion and compassion.

The importance of using experienced professionals.

Calling on a professional death cleanup service not only spares you from having to do the task yourself, but it ensures that the potential health hazards on the scene are completely eliminated.

A decomposing body leaks fluids that release bacteria. Insects are attracted to this and, in turn, further the spread of any toxins that may be present and increase the highly offensive odor of decomposition. Over time, body tissue, blood, and other bodily fluids seep into floor coverings and the subfloor below, and into walls, drapes, and furniture, making thorough cleanup especially difficult and best left to professionals. It is the possibility of the presence of pathogens, however, that make professional death cleanup services absolutely essential, because these pathogens can live for days in just a single drop of bodily fluid. Pathogens can be inhaled, ingested, or absorbed via direct contact and pose a severe risk to anyone on the scene.

The more time that goes by before the death is discovered, the more hazardous the scene can become. A thorough biohazard cleanup and proper sanitation must be done to make the area safe again for humans and pets, and this requires experience in using established procedures and specialized chemicals.

Blood Cleanup: So I walk into this scene that does not look that bloody and gory as usual scenes do. However, it is behind the scenes, or under, that gets the most affected, goes unseen and sometimes not decontaminated properly. With this situation, I know it’s time to start ripping up the place! (Another fun perk of my job; we get to rip stuff up!).

What’s the hold up? I’m ready to slip on my suit and get to ripping up carpet, pulling the base boards up, scrubbing, blowing, spraying, whatever the scene may need. As I start ripping up the carpet, the foul smell really starts to linger.

Senior Fall Leaves Bloody Trail

Blood Cleanup: Baltimore, MD

We were called in to the assisted living facility on the south side of Baltimore for a very unusual freak accident blood cleanup.

Jane D., age 89 suffered a mild heart attack earlier this morning. She had been dusting her furniture and suddenly the heart attack which caused her to fall.

When she fell she knocked her leg into her electric scooter which was parked in the living room of her 2 bedroom apartment that she shared with another lady who was out to lunch.

Apparently, part of her pant leg must have gotten caught in the electric scooter. Not only did she get cut when she fell she crawled on the floor screaming for help. She was dragging herself across the entire apartment and blood tracked wherever she went.

There was blood soaked in the carpet, on the tile and the grout. I’ve never really seen anything like it. It was quite awhile before anyone heard her.

Apparently she was trying to crawl to the cord that is used to alert help. She never reached it but one of the staff was notified by someone who had overheard her screaming and got help.

Thankfully, they were able to save her leg with no major damage although from the looks of the apartment she lost a lot of blood.
Blood cleanup scenes this bad are usually from a crime scene murder or suicide. Whew. Lots of cleanup here.
