In An Unattended Death Situation,
…the person most likely died of natural causes. But when someone lives alone the death may go undiscovered for several days, or sometimes weeks, and on occasion even months.
Because the human body is made up primarily of liquids, upon death the body will begin to break down into a semi-liquid state called decomposition. When this occurs, not only are there a lot of fluids seeping around the body, but also bacteria and toxins that become airborne throughout the house.
The residence will fill with nauseating odors. These odors are very strong and can reach the point of being overwhelming. The odors cannot be eliminated by simply opening the windows and doors. Most often, they have embedded themselves in the home and must be professionally treated and removed by a professional Unattended Death Cleanup company.
AZ-BIO Technicians Not Only Clean and Remove the Odors,
…but our company is a licensed contractor in Unattended Death Cleanup who can restore the home to a habitable condition. This allows the family, or estate representatives, to only have to make one call to remediate all aspects of the cleanup and restoration.
Because most cases are covered under homeowners Insurance, the cost of our services is usually paid by the insurance company.
Joe’s AZBIO has serviced this industry for many years, and have performed hundreds of these cleanups. We are therefore very knowledgeable regarding how most insurance carriers’ processes and procedures work.
