And unattended death may lead to the migration of blood and other body fluids called "potentially infectious materials" (OPIM).As a result it may become necessary to scrub and rinse soiled areas of walls once baseboards are removed from these walls. In the worst cases it made require removal of drywall or other types of wall covering. These removed areas are easily repaired. Likewise with certain types of flooring, most often would, it may be necessary to remove some areas of the floor.

Depending on the type of wood floor soiled by blood and OPIM, the age of the floor and most important, maintenance of the floor area, will help to determine the likelihood of the floors resistance to blood and Apomictic often an unattended death that occurs on a carpet will heavily soiled the carpet while fluids migrate below the carpet's two layers of latex and into the carpet padding. Carpet padding becomes heavily soiled and serves to absorb blood and opening just as it would were it a sponge. From the carpet padding blood and OPIM in continues to the floor below is in the case of the wood floor.

Concrete floors present some of the least issues when it comes to cleaning up after unattended death. Because we can aggressively scrub the concrete floor the likelihood of blood and OPIM in remaining after an aggressive scrub and rinse remains low. In some rare cases it may require superficial grinding of the concrete, but this is not as serious in operation as it may seem. What creates an inconvenience is easily overcome so long as the proper equipment is available to do the landing for blood and OPIM removal.

In the case of wood floors in concrete, it is often best to use a sealer over the once soiled area. The sealer helps reduce any possible odors that may emanate from the once soiled areas. Of course, these areas no longer give the appearance of the rest of the floor and before ceiling takes place, some thought should be given to this aesthetic challenge. In any case, it is highly recommended that any areas once soiled by blood and OPIM receive a sealer after thorough cleaning and disinfection. It is never advisable to seal over an area before the source materials, blood and other potentially infectious materials, are thoroughly removed.


A death upon a carpet most often requires removal of the carpet. The only exceptions would occur when the death was followed by removal of the decedent within a very short time. But we may consider what type of time is involved in making such judgments?It becomes a matter of room temperature, humidity, and the nature of death. The nature of death may include suicide because suicides are known as "unattended deaths" in many cases. In some cases, even homicides are known as unattended deaths because the homicide victim has either walked, ran, or crawled to the final death scene without attendance by others. Hence, the "unattended death" label.


How much of the carpet must be removed?

For the purposes of biohazard cleanup work, the area soiled by blood and other potentially infectious materials must be removed. This carpet can and should be disinfected before it reaches the outdoors. Ensuring that it has been disinfected is much as possible helps reduce odor emanating from the removed carpet as well is making it safer for handling in public spaces like the public highways. Of course, is carpet is sealed with plastic whenever I remove it from a death scene.

As a courtesy to families and businesses, I sometimes remove the entire carpet from a room. Of course, when a family needs an entire home or buildings carpet removed, we need to have another conversation about expenses.



And unattended death cleanup exposes the unattended death cleanup practitioner to a multitude of germs. The germs is a simple way of saying microscopic organisms like bacteria and viruses. An unattended death cleanup will often expose cleaning practitioners to to the hundreds of millions of bacteria found in human blood and other potentially infectious materials like feces, eye fluid, and even spinal fluid. Feces from humans, for example, contains over 6000 known viruses. Many of these viruses will survive in an open environment so long as contained in the feces. However, this feces does not qualify unless contaminated by human blood or other infectious materials within the human body.

Most often it's the bacteria involved in and unattended death with decomposition that leads to those horrific odors that so many people believe they cannot endure. Rest assured, odors experience during an unattended death cleanup do not cause illness or disease. Although some unattended death cleanup companies in California claim otherwise, these odors will cause nausea in the inexperienced biohazard cleanup practitioner, but the will not cause illness or disease beyond that minor nausea the comes within experience.

Overall, these odors begin to diminish as far as perception goes because the nasal nerves become more adjusted to these odors after about 20 minutes.


Redundantly, again I say that these unattended death cleanup odors do not create illness or disease. They may cause some mild nausea in those people inexperienced in the unattended death cleanup practice. A short time after removal from the death scene these nauseous feelings begin to subside.

If death scene odors due to decomposition were dangerous, we would not have corner or medical examiner pathologists working for County governments. We would not have body movers. We would not have morticians. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt's priest and morticians would have died without ever in bombing those ancient remains that archaeologists find to this day. So whenever anyone in the biohazard cleanup businesses that human death decomposition odors are dangerous, they do not know what they're talking about or the assembly line.
