Published by 911 Restoration Central Arkansas on January 18, 2022 in category: Blog

911 Restoration Unattended Death CleanupThe trauma is indescribable in the event of an unattended death of a loved one. It’s shocking, painful, and tragic. It can be perhaps the most challenging thing you may ever have to deal with, especially if the death occurred on your premises. 

In such a scenario, you may need the expertise of a professional company that specializes in unattended death clean up. And that is when you can rely on the 911 Restoration of Central Arkansas.

What is Unattended Death Cleanup?

Unattended death cleanup is a crucial aspect following a death of a beloved. It is important to understand that many seniors live alone and independently. However, a sudden illness or a heart attack can occur, and they can die unexpectedly. 

In such a situation, with no one checking on them, their bodies can be left undiscovered for days. This can further cause unsafe situations through the excretion of bodily fluids and odor in and around the premises.

Depending on how long the body has been left undiscovered by people, the odor can be overwhelming and even permeate the walls and soft goods in the parameters such as:

  • Furniture
  • Carpeting
  • Clothing
  • Electronics
  • Other surfaces

This can be an emotional and traumatic blow for the loved ones of the deceased, but the situation indeed requires quick action in terms of clean up and ensuring the safety of those around the premises. This is where unattended death cleanup services come in handy, where trained techs come over to deal with potential biohazards and ensure the place is thoroughly cleaned.

Unattended Death Clean up—Why Hire Professionals?

At 911 Restoration of Central Arkansas, we never recommend people deal with biohazard removal services independently. This is for many reasons, including but not limited to the following:

  • The deceased may carry several blood-borne diseases and spread bacteria and odors.
  • The physiological ramifications of cleaning the crime scene or the scene of the incident can be overwhelming.
  • Regular household cleaning products aren’t sufficient enough to deal with the situation.
  • The odor of the decomposition is inexplicable and needs special tools, equipment, and agents to clean it. For this, you need industrial-grade ozone machines to “shock” the air and negate odor completely, which only licensed professionals can have with them.
  • A professional cleanup team understands the complexities and issues of an unattended death cleanup process. Hence, they follow OSHA regulations, come well-equipped, wear proper personal protective safety equipment (PPE), and are trained and experienced in cleaning, deodorizing, and disinfecting your home and business. Hence, a professional team can ensure no foul odors or exposure to blood and fluids. This is crucial to ensure because failing to perform biohazard cleanup can raise safety and health risks and cause further damage to the property.

However, you don’t have to worry about it when you have a seasoned team at your service, as they may thoroughly disinfect the place and implement specific protocols to minimize the risk of spreading diseases. And thereby ensure that your property turns into a sanitary and safe place once again.

Moreover, property owners can ensure complete sanitization with seasoned techs at their disposal. And this is definitely crucial. Just because a place looks clean doesn’t necessarily mean the air and environment are clean too. By failing to sanitize the affected area completely, hazardous materials could linger around. Therefore complete sanitization is an essential step of a biohazard removal service to ensure proper disposal of hazardous materials and air quality.

How Much Does Unattended Death Cleanup Cost?

In most situations, the home owner’s insurance company covers unattended death cleanup or biohazard removal services. Also, some insurance companies may cover the cost of the services while also replacing the damaged items.

The final cost of the unattended death cleanup services by the insurance company can be broken down into two groups. These include:

When it comes to a professional biohazard remediation company assessing the final cost of the death scene cleanup, the primary conditions can be broken down into two groups—cause of death and circumstances.

The causes of death may include the following:

  • Natural causes
  • Overdose
  • Suicide
  • Accidental death
  • Homicide

Circumstances may include:

  • Location on property
  • Time lapsed since the death
  • Death by violence
  • Hoarding
  • Severe saturation
  • Climate
  • Pre-death condition of the body
