Unattended Death Biological Remediation Canberra
When cleaning up the scene of death or suicide, it is important to remember that potential biohazards can be concealed anywhere in the property including in carpet, furniture, sub-flooring, grout and under tiles and even behind walls. When a loved one passes away, coping with their death can be difficult for their relatives and friends. Often what isn’t thought about is what happens next – having to remove blood, bodily fluids and odour can be an arduous task, which cannot normally be performed by standard household or commercial cleaning methods. Death and Suicide Cleaning across Canberra requires a rigorous, multi-step process to remove all traces of bio hazardous materials. Forensic Cleaning Canberra’s biological cleaners and technicians possess the skills and technical knowledge to successfully and expertly remediate any property requiring death and suicide cleaning.
Post Death & Suicide Clean Ups | Canberra, Acton, Parkes, Campbell, Tharwa & Lyneham
In the case of an death and suicide clean up, the human body begins to decompose only 15 minutes after the heart stops beating, and if left for day or weeks, widespread contamination will occur in the property including body fluid leaching into the flooring, walls, sub-flooring and furnishings. Additionally, an infestation of insects such as flies and cockroaches will occur and lay their eggs in and around the decomposing body that in turn, speeds up the decomposition process. Many unattended death and suicide cleaning situations pose serious health risks to property owners and occupants, and the biohazard remediation technicians due to the potential exposure to blood borne pathogens. Exposure to blood borne viruses can occur due to direct contact with scratches and sores, accidental injury from biological waste, inhalation and exposure from blood or biological hazardous fluid to the eyes, nose or mouth.

The threat of contamination extends to water that may have been affected with human waste or bodily fluids, sharp items and objects within the vicinity of the scene. At every point in the decontamination process, the strictest controls must be applied to ensure that the Crime Scene Clean Up technicians completing the task are protected.
