Paradise Valley Death Cleanup
With so many people living by themselves here in Paradise Valley and throughout Maricopa County, it’s a sad reality that people sometimes pass away without anyone knowing about it for several days. Left alone in high heat, it’s usually the smell of the decomposing body alerting people to the fact that something is wrong.
With our hot Arizona weather, it can take as little as 12 hours after death for a body to start decomposing. In colder weather, the process slows and can take as long as 48-72 hours. In that time, body materials break down and seep into all surrounding porous material such as fabric, wood, and leather. Between the dangers of bacteria, mold, and various pests and diseases, anything the bodily fluids touch need to be cleaned or properly removed.
Who does the after death cleaning?
Once the police have completed their report and the coroner has removed the dead body, the entire affected area will need to be thoroughly cleaned by death cleanup professionals in order to keep everyone safe from bacteria, viruses, and numerous diseases. Since all bodily fluids and tissues are legally considered biohazards, every single item must be handled and disposed of according to all local, state, and federal regulations.
Our after death cleanup technicians are are extremely well trained in cleaning various surfaces from all biohazards, removing soiled building materials, and are up to date on the latest equipment and all related biohazard rules and regulations. With extensive experience in unattended death cleanup, biohazard transporting, and legal disposal, we know what it takes to protect you, your loved ones, and ourselves while we make the area safe to use. For these reasons, it’s important you leave this kind of cleanup to the professionals.
How does the death cleaning process work?
Our team at Bio Team AZ will first remove all the objects that came into direct contact with the decomposing body, cleaning everything that can be salvaged and removing anything that can’t be sanitized. Once everything has been removed and all objects cleaned, we then clean, decontaminate, and sanitize all remaining surfaces. Lastly, we ventilate the area and use an ozone machine to remove all remaining odors. When we’re done, all the danger will be fully removed and you’ll be free to focus on what’s important: grieving your loved one.
Does insurance pay for this?
Most home and property insurance policies cover the cost of an unattended death cleanup. We understand what a difficult time this can be for a family so with no money paid up front, we can complete the insurance forms and bill the company directly.
