The moment the body stops functioning, the decomposition process begins. With the release of bodily fluids comes a biohazard, which can lead to property damage and strong odors. And in fact, it’s typically the wafting odor that alerts someone that something is wrong.

Once we arrive on the scene, we will extract all traces of bodily fluids from the furniture, carpeting, and clothing that may have come into contact with the deceased. We always try to save any items we can as well as minimize any property damage.

Flies are a sign that decomposition is advanced and that traces of the process may be found throughout the home. We will strive to fully sanitize and disinfect any area that flies may have touched. Rest assured that we’ll be in full communication with you throughout the process and share any details you may care to know.

Once everything is cleaned up, the area will be fully deodorized with the finest of equipment. Before we consider the job done, we make sure the affected area is well-ventilated and no signs of trauma remain.
