Once we have done this, we will quickly create a detailed cleanup plan and put it into action straight away.
  • Initial Cleanup – The first task we tackle is the cleaning up of any blood, bodily fluids and biological materials that may be present.

  • Disinfection – Once all blood, fluids and biological materials have been safely removed, our team will use appropriate disinfectants to treat all affected surfaces. This step in the unattended death cleanup process will restore the property to a habitable condition.
  • Deodorization – After all surfaces have been thoroughly disinfected, we will use deodorizers to remove any unpleasant odors.
  • Testing and Inspection – We use ATP testing equipment to make sure that every area has been properly cleaned. This equipment will identify molecules that are found in all living cells so if there are any surfaces that are still contaminated, they will quickly be found and dealt with.

All of our cleaning is performed to the same high standards of hygiene that medical facilities in the United States adhere to. By using ATP testing equipment, we are able to ensure this is always the case.
