An unattended death is when someone living alone passes away and is not found for a period of time. Due to the rapid decomposition of a human body, the scene can sometimes be traumatizing. Factors that can determine the difficulty of remediation and the price of the cleanup are length of time since the person deceased, the location of the body, and temperature within the space. We are available to immediately assess the scene and provide you with an estimate for the thorough decontamination and cleaning of the premises. Work can usually begin soon after the scene is released by investigators. If an insured premises or vehicle is involved, we will contact your insurance carrier for you and determine what coverage can be expected. If requested, we provide them with photos along with the estimate.
Unattended Death situations generally cause significant odor. If the scene is not properly remediated, the odor may permeate walls and floors and remain indefinitely. Cabinets, floors, toilets, doors or walls may need to be removed for the proper disinfecting to be accomplished. Flies can leave contaminated feces throughout the interior of the residence. We disinfect all areas needed for proper decontamination. The use of a highly powerful ozone machine may be needed to completely eliminate the odor throughout the premises and on the rest of the belongings so that family members can retain the cherished belongings.
