An unattended death is where someone dies, and his or her passing is undiscovered for a period, which may be days or even weeks. Discovering an unattended death is an often a traumatic experience, particularly for those who learn that a loved one has died alone. The cleaning of the scene is not something that a family should have to perform, simply because it is too distressing for you and because it is a hazardous operation.
Importance of seeking specialist assistance
A decomposing body leaks blood and other bodily fluids that, over time, can seep into floor coverings, the subfloor below, walls and furniture. Insects are attracted to this and, in turn, further the spread of pathogens that may be present in bodily fluids adding to the highly offensive odour of decomposition. Pathogens can be inhaled, ingested, or absorbed via direct contact and pose a severe risk to anyone at the scene. The more time that goes by before the death is discovered, the more hazardous the scene becomes.
