Occasionally, landlords and property managers or family members are left with the sad and unfortunate task of restoring a property to liveable condition after a person has passed away inside. When a person dies and their body begins to naturally decompose, it can release gases and fluids (the smell is quite distinctive) as well as attracting pests. When the person has died from a fatal trauma, such as in the case of a murder or accident, there can also be blood and biological material distributed around a wide area.
There is a significant risk of contamination from pathogens, including blood borne pathogens (BBP), when dealing with human remains. For this reason, it takes extensive special training and qualifications to clean an area where a person has died or been severely injured. Protective clothing and special disposal units must be used. It also takes special knowledge and skills to assess the level of cleaning required – for example, knowing when carpet or fixtures need to be removed. Often, forensic and trauma cleaning means much more than just removing smells and the appearance of stains; it also means thorough cleaning, deodorising and sanitising throughout the property.
