Unattended Death - Cleaning | Remediation

Delaware biohazard remediation and hoarding cleanup and gross filth

An unattended Death presents a unique combination of problems for detectives, medical examiners and coroners, but also for those tasked with cleaning the aftermath.

Once removed, a body leaves behind both visual and microscopic traces that can prove harmful to those who may come into contact with them. Although the appearance of blood, bodily fluids and tissue warrants a thorough cleaning effort, it requires much more than simply wiping it up.

Handling an unattended death scene or decomposition involves a detailed procedure to detect, disinfect and completely remove all traces of biohazard materials and infectious waste, to include but not limited to; blood, bodily fluids, tissue & bone matter, contaminated clothing and household goods, hypodermic needles, razor blades and other items that may pose a risk of injury. Although a visual inspection of a crime or trauma scene may reveal a great deal of blood and bodily fluids about the area, an equal amount will be found by our technicians in areas that cannot be seen or easily accessed. It is vital that all traces of these elements be removed from a scene, whether a crime has been committed or not.

Technicians with Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. have received extensive training in, not only crime scene cleanup, but in dealing with unattended deaths and decomposition and in the use of various chemicals, all of which are OSHA approved and completely safe. In conjunction with specialized training in the detection and removal of biohazards, our technicians will restore your house or place of business to a safe environment.

Please, before you attempt to clean an unattended death scene, speak with a trained & certified technician. We have trained personnel standing by 24 hours a day to answer your questions.

Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. works with several different insurance companies, therefore we are often able to bill your insurance company directly. If insurance covers the cost of our services, the only payment required from you will be your policy deductible. If insurance coverage is not available, we do offer several different payment plans, which generally suit most budgets.
