In the event of an unattended death, the body might not be found for a period of time. Depending on the conditions of the surrounding environment, a human body can begin to decompose within 24-72 hours following an unattended death. An unattended death scene can be contaminated with blood and other bodily fluids that will require specialized care when handling. Additional, depending on the time that passed before discovery, a decomposing body can leave behind hazardous fluids, dangerous bacteria and noxious odors that can be hazardous and require professional cleanup.
Once what is left of the deceased is properly taken away and the scene is released, the aftermath of the unattended death will be the responsibility of those closest to the situation– friends, family members, business owners or property managers. Coping with the trauma of death is difficult enough as it is, cleaning up the contamination left behind can be physically taxing, emotionally overwhelming and potentially hazardous. Let the professionals help.
Cleanup of the blood, bodily fluids and other contaminates left behind can be emotionally stressful AND physically dangerous if it not done correctly by someone with the proper training, equipment and knowledge. Biological residue, dangerous bacteria, deadly pathogens and other bio contaminants may be present that will require specialized cleaning techniques and proper removal and disposal methods. When dealing with the aftermath of an unattended death, biohazard cleanup technicians in Cleveland OH are required to follow strict safety regulations and cleanup protocols.
