When somebody dies, particularly if not found for weeks or even months, an unpleasant odour can be left behind. This odour permeates contents and structural elements of the property and can be difficult to remove. The lingering odour and airborne bacteria that a decomposing body produces can ruin household items in just a few days.
Removing the Odour left from Death
Removing the odours caused by a decomposing body should be handled by a suitably qualified professional. Any disposable supplies used in the clean-up must be properly discarded and transported. Biohazard remediation companies such as Crime Scene Cleaners Perth are trained on how to handle a wide range of situations and possess the knowledge, experience, tools, and protective equipment to complete the job wholly. Some of the supplies and chemicals utilised include:
Biohazard waste containers
Ozone generators (to remove odours)
Chemical treatment tanks
Repainting your property and getting new carpet can help out with combating the smell left behind from a dead body. But these measures do not protect against exposure to the dangerous bacteria that is present.
Professional Death and Odour Removal Specialists
Any amount of human waste can be hazardous to our health. In fact, federal regulations deem all bodily fluids to be biohazards, and any blood, tissue, or bodily fluids at a scene are considered a potential source of infection. This includes odours that are left behind even after the body has been removed from the scene.
