Unattended Death and Decomposition Explained


When an individual passes away and isn’t discovered immediately, this is called an unattended death. This could happen for many reasons. Whether they live in a remote area, or don’t have loved ones nearby, decomposition sets in within hours. It may be due to an existing health condition, or a suicide. Regardless of the circumstances, we understand this is heartbreaking and you should never have to go through this alone.


As the body decomposes, bodily fluids begin to leak out. This can damage the flooring, sub-floor, baseboards, sheetrock, walls, furniture, and even cause a pungent odor. There are many factors that affect the rate in which the body decomposes, such as temperature, cause of death, and location. Steri-Clean offers state of the art decomposition cleanup services and will work directly with your insurance company. 


Decomposition cleanups are very difficult, as they require hospital-grade cleaning products, and often an odor treatment. After decomposition sets in, you are often left with a terrible odor. This can make it difficult for you to even enter the home, much less make plans for selling, renting, or continuing to live there if you desire. Steri-Clean offers a state of the art odor treatment to ensure there is no trace of biohazard or odor left in the home.


Each decomposition cleanup is different and should be approached differently. Let Steri-Clean give you peace of mind that the area is cleaned and disinfected.
