Nobody ever wants to walk into a room in which a death has occurred. However, you must know what to do to protect your health and safety if you walk into such a scene. The presence of a lifeless body can be dangerous, especially if is has been a couple of days before discovery. It is important to stay clear of the scene because of the biohazard materials and potential evidence present and call 911 to respond to the scene. Once the authorities arrive, you can contact Aftermath Services to restore the scene. Aftermath Services provides death cleanup services in Memphis, TN to clean and restore the scene of a death. Our technicians will work with law enforcement to fully restore the scene without compromising any investigation.
An unattended death is when a death occurs and it takes days or even weeks for someone to discover the body. During this time, the body will decompose and bodily fluids may become present in the area. All bodily fluids are potentially dangerous because they may contain viruses or bacteria that can spread infection and disease. Our professionals at Aftermath Services have the cleaning products and protective equipment to safely restore the scene of a death in the following scenarios:
