Unattended Death / Decomposition
Sometimes, individuals die alone and are not found for several days or even longer. This is called an unattended death.
Sometimes, individuals die alone and are not found for several days or even longer. This is called an unattended death. The body naturally begins to decompose very quickly after death.
With decomposition, the body no longer looks like it did in life. Biological fluids begin to seep out and body tissues begin to breakdown. After a few hours to a few days, depending on the weather, these changes invite odor, insects, bacteria, and mold. These consequences impact more than just the area where the individual is found. They can impact furnishings and personal items in other parts of the home or business.
Finding a decomposing body can be very difficult for a family member, landlord, or friend. It can also be a very difficult scene to fully remediate. Cleanup should only be done by a professional crime scene cleaning team specializing in unattended death cleanup.
