Unfortunately death does not always happen to people who are socially active and would be immediately missed if they don't return a phone call. Unattended deaths, more often than not, it happens to an older individual who is retired and mainly keeps to themselves. In these cases, unexpected deaths can can go unnoticed for long periods of time before being discovered and decomposition has started to occur.
Once a body dies, we all start to decompose within hours of the event and unfortunately, the smell that accompanies this is often the first sign of an unattended death. The only way to permanently remove the odor is by removing every trace of biohazardous waste. This can include and is not limited to disposing of any furniture soiled with body fluids, cutting out walls, cupboards, floor tiles, bedding, floorboards etc. Once all the biohazardous materials are removed we begin the odour removal treatment.. This process is very precise and is not as simple as spraying some nice smelling chemicals in the air. Although, it may mask the odour for a while, it is in no way a permanent odor removal solution and the smell will quickly reappear.
Many people assume this cleaning is the responsibility of the police, or local authority to carry out this task, the truth is that this is rarely the case.
