The unexpected death of a loved one can be an extremely emotional blow. For the loved ones left behind, cleaning the scene after an unattended death occurs can be difficult and overwhelming, to say the least. It goes way beyond normal cleaning and is the last thing one should be worried about at such a time of grief.

In such traumatic and stressful situations, unattended death cleanup needs to be handled by a professional cleanup company like Bio Hazard Pty Ltd. With years of experience, we work diligently to provide restoration to your home.

An unexpected death exposes loved ones to unnecessary trauma.

The loss of a loved one can be very traumatic. This can be more so if they have passed away alone and have been undiscovered for a long time. Attempting a cleanup after such a situation can expose anyone to unnecessary grief and trauma. Not many people are mentally or emotionally prepared for it. Along with the passing, the difficult reality of a biohazard cleaning and remediation makes the healing process that much more difficult.

Professional cleaning agents can quickly and safely clean the trauma scene and disinfect homes to help families move past the tragedy. Trained professionals understand that unattended death cleanup also involves providing comfort, compassion, and empathy during the challenging time. They work with the utmost discretion and respect.

When an unattended death occurs, the scene can quickly become hazardous.

Body decomposition is a natural process. It can take just 12 hours for a body to start decomposing in hot weather. If the body is in a closed room and the weather is cold, it can take around 48-72 hours.

As the body decomposition process starts, flies will usually find their way to the bodily fluids. The environment is ideal for the flies to lay their eggs. These eggs develop into larva and feed on the organic matter, thus leading to cross contamination.

A decomposing body is very hazardous to anyone in or around the area. This is not only when the decomposition process is going on, but even after it has occurred. Biohazard material can be left even after the body has been removed in the event of an undiscovered death.

Immediate remediation involves removing any biohazards and affected items that could pose a health risk.

The presence of blood, bodily fluids and body decomposition affects everything in the area. Unattended death cleanup involves more than normal surface cleaning. Every piece of furniture, all surfaces and items need to be thoroughly checked. It is vital to remove any contaminated furniture and belongings.

Removal of body fluids and affected items is a task for licensed professionals. They will also be licensed to transport them to a proper disposal site.

Terrible odours result from decomposition.

Strong odours can permeate all soft items in the home, the upholstery and even walls.

Professional odour removal will have to be done to remove the odour remaining in the air as well as from hard and soft surfaces that have absorbed the odour.

Throughout the entire decomposition cleaning process, it is necessary to find and neutralise the source of odours, else they will linger. Experts using the correct equipment and techniques ensure the extremely overwhelming odours will be removed from the site and the rest of the property.

Hiring professional cleaners ensures the loved ones of the deceased assume less risk regarding the situation at hand.

Professional biohazard cleaners prioritise both safety and thoroughness while dedicated to discreetly and compassionately helping people. Hiring them is the right choice for several reasons.

Quick Response.

The decomposing body may carry a blood borne disease and potential biohazards could be anywhere on the site. The best thing to do in such a situation is to get in touch with fully credentialed biohazard cleaning company that are ready to take it on. Certified professional cleaners have the resources to respond to technical cleaning needs immediately.

Decontamination and disinfection.

Decontamination and disinfection is important following an unattended death of a loved one. Most specialised cleaning crews use extremely effective eco-friendly cleansers to ensure the property is thoroughly safe for future occupants.

Highly trained and experienced professionals.

Cleaning an unattended death scene shouldn’t be attempted by anyone who is not specifically trained to do so. Biohazard cleaning experts have to undergo extensive technical training to deal with potential biohazards. They have to possess nationally recognised certifications to ensure they meet the highest service standards. Specialised teams are trained and experienced to handle any level of decontamination and disinfection.

Right equipment and science-based solutions.

Professional cleaners observe all necessary safety protocols and regulations. Every cleaning solution is based on scientific evidence and using the most advanced methods.

To ensure the client’s safety and the safety of the cleaning team they always use personal protective equipment (PPE).
