When a death takes place the natural process of decomposition and breakdown begins very quickly and potentially harmful bacteria are released through various areas. Bacteria are responsible for the odour of body decomposition and will spread rapidly infecting as it proceeds.
When contemplating whether to clean yourself it is worth bearing in mind that:
Porous materials which include wood, carpet, drywall, or concrete, will absorb body fluids. As a result, you should never attempt to clean porous materials.
A bioremediation company can properly dispose of these items for you.
Decomposition can attract wildlife including the breeding of insects which in turn can spread bacteria and germs throughout the property and beyond into other areas of the property.
There is always potential to come in contact with bloodborne pathogens.
While decomposition is perfectly normal, traditional home cleaning solutions are not sufficient to safely clean, sanitize and disinfect areas affected by human decomposition - see our international disinfection standards post.
Even the smallest amount of biological material left untreated can make a residence unsafe to inhabit and dangerous to sell.
