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.
