You might be surprised to learn that when someone dies in your home or business, no matter how gruesome, the police are not responsible for cleaning up the scene. Dealing with death, on top of the aftermath of a body, is both traumatic and stressful for anyone in the Cincinnati area. Whether it’s the unattended death of a loved one in your home, or a deadly crime scene at your place of business, Spaulding Decon Cincinnati is here to guide you through the proper steps of cleaning up after a dead body.
After the Police Leave
The situation will most likely be overwhelming and scary, and you may find it difficult to concentrate on all of the important steps. But it’s important to remember to always call the appropriate law agencies when you discover a dead body.
Once the police remove the body and are finished investigating the scene, they will recommend that you call a decontamination company, such as Spaulding Decon Cincinnati. At this point, the police are done and the responsibility is up to you to ensure that the space is cleaned up.
Hire A Professional
You may want to begin cleaning the scene yourself, but without the proper equipment this task is incredibly dangerous to your health and the health of those around you. A body quickly begins the decomposition process, and bacteria, which can make the living sick, will also quickly surround the area. Beyond this natural process, deceased individuals carry potentially contagious bloodborne pathogens and diseases like HIV and Hepatitis.
A dead body, blood, and other biological material are considered extremely biohazardous and require proper, professional handling. If dealt with incorrectly, residue from a dead body can cause persistent odor issues, pest problems, and even health complications for inhabitants.
