While most people understand the risks of exposure to blood borne pathogens such as HIV and Hepatitis, there are additional risks associated with the cleanup of this type of scene. Exposure may result in flu-like illness or attacks on the respiratory system.
After a death, nature immediately begins the process of breaking down a body. This process begins right away and signs of biological decomposition can appear in as little as a few hours. As decomposition continues, biological fluids begin to seep from the body onto the surrounding flooring material, clothing items, furniture, mattresses and structure. These fluids are rich in nutrients that are desirable to bacteria, insects and mold. In addition to promoting the growth of bacteria, insects and mold, these fluids release chemicals called “putrescine” and “cadaverine,” that are associated with the “death” odor. The visual and olfactory components of this decomposition can overwhelm senses. In addition, an unattended death scene can be dangerous due to high levels blood borne pathogens, bacteria and mold spores.
