Death is something that nobody wants to have to think about or deal with, yet it is still a fundamental part of life in the UK.
When dealing with the loss of a loved one, there is so much to process, plan, organise and handle that it is easy to overlook the health risks and serious issue of potential biohazards caused through the decomposition of unattended death.
While you may think that conventional over the counter cleaning products will suffice in the cleaning of a biohazard scene, we simply cannot stress enough the potential biohazard risks that are involved with unattended death.
What are the biohazard risks with a dead body?
The unexpected loss of a loved one comes with the difficult reality of cleaning up the affected areas afterwards and when a person dies, the natural decomposition of the body begins relatively quickly. With this decomposition comes harmful bacteria and it is this bacteria that is responsible for the foul odour that comes with body decomposition.
Depending on the location that the body was found in, there may be issues with the following:
– Porous materials like wood, carpet and even concrete can absorb body fluids. You should NEVER try to clean porous materials after an unattended death.
– Depending on the health of the deceased before they passed, there is a risk of blood borne pathogens.
Even the smallest amount of biological material left behind after an unattended death can leave a home uninhabitable and over the counter/supermarket shelf cleaning solutions are simply not designed to sufficiently clean, sanitize and disinfect areas contaminated by human decomposition.
