We are generally referred to an unattended death scene by medical examiner, pastor or family member

The body decomposition which accompanies an unattended death poses a risk for people to be exposed to infectious diseases. Unattended death scenes contain blood, tissue, urine, feces and bodily fluids. Bodily fluids seep into floors, carpet, walls, drapes and surrounding areas. A home’s livability can be compromised quickly with even personal property such as clothing, furniture and books becoming ruined.

The greatest risk comes from common bloodborne pathogens such as Hepatitis B and HIV. These pathogens can be found in a single drop of bodily fluid and can live for days. Bloodborne pathogens can be ingested, inhaled or absorbed through direct contact. Airborne bacteria create a high risk environment for anyone entering the space. In addition to disease, bacteria leads to lingering odors which can be unpleasant and dangerous.

Death scenes require a licensed and certified professional to clean and dispose of hazardous material. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration as well as the US Environmental Protection Agency have strict guidelines about the disposal of hazardous materials.

Death cleanup requires a trauma scene cleanup company to provide cleaning services. Bio Management Northwest has trained technicians to handle all biohazard situations and limit the exposure and risk in the situation of death.
