A home can develop a strong and unpleasant odor if its occupants are involved in trauma, such as an unattended death, hoarding, or a crime scene. Decaying biological material can lead to toxic levels of odor if left unchecked.
At Aftermath Services, we provide trauma scene cleaning and odor removal for homes and businesses in Detroit that have experienced an unattended death. We understand that the discovery of an unattended death can be a traumatic experience for family and friends, which is why it is important to us that we respect the privacy of those affected by these incidents and provide a safe environment for our employees. The cleanup process following an unattended death is best handled by a professional biohazard and trauma scene cleaning team.
Bacteria can breed on any surface given the proper conditions. As a result, unsightly damage to the property and odors may result. This is not just a visual concern–breathing in airborne breeding bacteria can present health concerns for current and future occupants of the property.
Lingering Odors after Death

Odors commonly become embedded in the following materials throughout a home:

Aftermath’s crime scene cleanup professionals evacuate damaged personal property and structural elements, leaving behind only what is salvageable with our advanced restoration methods. This work is carried out according to a strict protocol developed in accordance with government regulations.
When we complete a death cleanup, we provide the property owner with a Certificate of Treatment, which verifies that the job has been performed according to professional standards. The certificate can be used as a guarantee of disinfection on any bill of sale for the property. We also use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) fluorescence testing, used in hospitals, to verify a high level of disinfection after we complete the job.
