A home in which an unattended death or other trauma has occurred can develop a strong, unpleasant odor if there is biological material involved that is not promptly disposed of.
When a death occurs and is not discovered for days or even weeks, a family’s ordeal can be traumatic. The challenge for our technicians is to remove the odor caused by the decomposition of human remains while respecting the bereaved family’s feelings. Aftermath Services is the Memphis trauma scene cleanup company to contact for all your decomposition and odor removal needs.
Bacteria are everywhere and can multiply in the right conditions. If left untreated, bacteria can damage your property and cause odors. Odors can be dismissed as annoying but should also be treated as a health concern for future occupants of your property.
LINGERING ODORS AFTER DEATH
As soon as a body begins to decompose, its tissues release odorous chemicals. The odor of decomposition can spread quickly, causing a noticeable smell within hours of death in warm weather and within days in cooler temperatures. Personal belongings such as furniture, books, clothes and carpeting may be permanently damaged by the odor if not treated by a professional cleaner.
Odors can linger in the following materials in your home:
