Anytime a loved one dies, it’s difficult for everyone involved. When a person dies and isn’t found for days, an already difficult time can become a nightmare. Along with an unattended death comes body decomposition and all of its disturbing stages, requiring after-death cleaning services in Washington and Oregon.
Bio Management Northwest works with experienced technicians who provide unattended death cleanup services for families. You can reach our trauma scene cleaners 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with fast response times of as little as one to three hours. We are always ready to answer the call to handle any death cleaning services. We are generally referred to an unattended death scene by the medical examiner, pastor, or family member.
The body decomposition accompanying an unattended death risks exposure to infectious diseases. Unattended death scenes contain blood, tissue, urine, feces, and other bodily fluids that seep into floors, carpets, walls, drapes, and surrounding areas. A home’s livability can be compromised quickly, with even personal property such as clothing, furniture, and books ruined.
The most significant 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 pathogen exposure occurs when these fluids are absorbed through direct contact, inhaled, or ingested. When they are airborne, it creates a high risk of exposure for everyone. In addition to disease, bacteria lead to lingering odors, which can be unpleasant and dangerous.
Unattended death clean-up services require licensing and certification to clean and dispose of biohazards correctly. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provide strict guidelines regarding hazardous waste disposal. Biohazard cleanup and blood clean-up services must follow these regulations.
Unattended death requires a trauma scene cleanup company to provide cleaning services. Our biohazard cleanup services in Washington and Oregon offer highly trained technicians who can clean all biohazard environments, limiting exposure and eliminating the risks after an unattended death.
