Unattended Death Cleanup Information
XXXX unattended death cleanup service remains available for all days of the week. Call any time to make an appointment or to ask questions. I accept homeowners insurance, case, and checks.
I've been in the business and have cleaned unattended deaths in many situations. I guarantee my work.
Most scholars for unattended death cleanup information are not sure about the questions they need to ask. Most callers have never heard this phrase unattended death before. It's for this reason that I like to take charge of a conversation and ask questions to help learn about the death scene and to inform my callers.
There is a short list of the subjects we might consider:
Are you using homeowners insurance?
Who will the responsible person be for getting me into the home and breaking the corner seal on the door?
Can you tell me if this death occurred in a house, condominium, apartment, mobile home, or recreational vehicle?
Can you tell me if the incident occurred on the first floor or second floor?
Can you tell me if the incident occurred in a bedroom, bathroom, living room, hallway, or on stairs?
Can you tell me if the floor is wood or concrete.
Can you tell me if there is electricity and running water?
If you choose to use homeowners insurance I will need your claim adjuster's telephone number and claim number.
If you have a check from a major, local bank at which I can cash this check then I will accept check payment.
Cash payment is always nice because it's faster and there's fewer possibilities of delayed payment
I no longer accept credit cards because of the expense and problems related to keeping a credit card account..
Unattended deaths often occur in the early morning hours because this is when our older population begins their day. Because the transition between sleep and waking in the morning's chores place new stresses on the heart, a number of unattended deaths occur because of heart attack.
Many unattended tests take place on or near the toilet in the morning because pressure on the heart causes the heart to fail. As a result death occurs either on a toilet or near a toilet. The decedent then lays in place until somebody finds them and this can take anywhere from hours to weeks and even several months depending on circumstances.
Because many of us choose to live alone we are more susceptible to an unattended death. You can see this occurring at different rates in different societies over history. Tribal societies rarely experienced on a defendant deaths we would think. The unattended death cleanup practice would not gain in service meets and tell our modern era.
An unattended death cleanup often involves more than removing fluids. Sometimes it requires demolition of parts of walls and parts of the floor. Although this does not happen often because walls and floors can be scrubbed and rinsed and sealed, sometimes it's better just to knock out the soil material and replace it. Often times people with homeowners insurance prefer this approach because they know their insurance company will cover the costs.
Him him him the shock of an unattended death waves a family numb at best and horrified at worst. There are so many questions that need to be asked and answered and there are really few people in the world to answer these questions. For example, we have those questions that come up between family members and corners employs about the family's responsibilities in the matter.
Then there are questions by the corners employs directed to the family.
Then there are questions that arise my the individual who finds the decedent. Unfortunately for this person these questions will continue to rise for some time to come. Not only about the unattended death, but about the unattended death cleanup because this is the person who will inform the other members of the family and friends about the horrific circumstances following the unattended death. "Will we do the unattended death cleanup?" For some families this is a real responsibility and it must be fulfilled. For some families it must be fulfilled because they feel duty bound.
For other families they may be overwhelmed by the whole ordeal. For them,'s if the home in which the unattended death occurred showed some sign of discretionary income belonged to the decedent, most likely a corners employ will offer up help from an unattended death cleanup practitioner or company. It will do this in a nonchalant manner. They will quietly in a very businesslike manner and a piece of paper with one, two, or three telephone numbers on it. It will comment that anyone of these numbers leads to someone involved in the unattended death cleanup business. They will also add a comment like the following: I'm not supposed to do this, but these are good companies.
When this interaction occurs family members will think there corners employ representative for his or her thoughtfulness. What they don't realize that the time is that the County corners employ was absolutely correct, they're not supposed to hand out telephone numbers or in any way direct families to professional unattended death cleanup companies.
More, with the employee doesn't add is that most likely they will receive a 10% kickback off the gross amount of the cleaning fee. Sometimes these employees own the biohazard cleanup company to which they recommend families. Consider this, unattended death cleanup invoices grossed over $3000 and up to 20 and even $30,000 depending on the area of the country and the boldness of the cleaning company. Now it's 10% of 3000 or 20,000 or 30,000. Right, it's $300, $2000, or $3,000 depending on the cleaning companies ability to defraud the insurance company. This does occur and it has occurred in the past, but it becomes harder for biohazard cleanup companies to get away with these outrageous charges because of state Atty. Gen. suing them.
Status Wendling takes place all over the country and it also involves homicide cleanup and suicide cleanup as well as other sorts of blood cleanup related work.
It just happens at unattended death cleanup lends itself to County employ referrals for which they receive a kickback, a referral fee like in the real estate industry.
Anyway, families are thankful for the bit of advice that leads to a company willing to accept their insurance money. But what happens to those families that do not have homeowners insurance?
Their concern is with getting the job done. What will it cost them? Well when a family looks like they may have a little bit of money while not choosing to use their homeowners insurance, if they have homeowners insurance, some unattended death cleanup companies will offer to do the job for a mere $2000. Even that's a lot of money for unattended death cleanup.
What other ideas might arise for a family dealing with the unattended death cleanup issue? Some companies will ask that the responsible party sign a document claiming that all work is completed to their satisfaction. That way the company has no liability and need not be concerned with making things right if they are not quite right. Other companies would just ignore pleas for help because work is not completed properly.
For me, there is no issue to be found here. An unattended death cleanup demands that I return if ever I find something is amiss or somebody suggested is. In 15 years I returned three times. Only once was there matter left that could have been cleaned off his shower wall but I had missed it. I'm not making excuses, but the light was poor and was quite a bit of source material on the floor, walls, toilet, shower stall, and personal hygiene models and brushes in the area.
So I guarantee my work and I guarantee that I will return upon request. I don't ask anybody to sign anything to ensure that all return to an unattended death cleanup for which I claim responsibility.
Family members will ask questions about soil materials in the home. "Are they dangerous?"
The fact is that once scraping, scrubbing, removing, and disinfecting soil materials is underway, the risk of cross-contamination and infection is reduced. I prefer to use large quantities of bleach because bleach is high in alkaline content. Because the human body has a pH level of about 7.2 on the pH scale, and bleach as a pH scale over 12, actually 12.5 to 12.74 Clorox bleach, the bleach destroys bacteria and viruses in human blood and OPIM. So you can see that the cleaning process itself begins to decontaminate the area.
I place a strong bleach solution on everything I can get my hands on during unattended death cleanup this includes soiled areas of mattresses, sheets, blankets, towels, clothing, carpets, carpet padding, floors, and walls. In this way I help to reduce the risk of blood-borne pathogens continuing to exist in blood and OPIM. Time itself is a threat to blood-borne pathogens and OPIM; therefore the longer the unattended death remains in place the greater the likelihood that blood-borne pathogen density has decreased.
When does increase over time as the density of bacteria releasing noxious odors like sulfuric and uric acid odors. Given time even these orders will diminish after the population of gas producing bacteria has diminished. But when this process goes on for a long period of time in warm weather these orders will permeate cellular structure materials. These materials consist of man-made objects like carpet padding and drywall. Even wood furniture without a topcoat coating will absorb these odors. These odors will distant pate given time, but sometimes they remain for too long.
Though the word itself derives from the ancient Greek koimeterion (meaning “sleeping place”), the cemetery as we know it today—a parklike tract of land with neatly marked individual plots—is a modern invention. Early Christians living in Rome interred their dead in catacombs—underground burial chambers hewn out of the soft volcanic rock surrounding the city. An estimated six million Christians were entombed in these elaborate subterranean networks, which were also used as places of refuge during times of religious persecution. As writer Penny Col-man describes them in her excellent book Corpses, Coffins, and Crypts: A History of Burial (Henry Holt, 1997): The actual graves were cut into the walls, and the walls were frequently painted with religious scenes and portraits of religious leaders. In order to reduce odors, the bodies were usually covered in plaster and sealed in the tombs, and perfumes were constantly burned. When the first level of the catacomb was filled, the second level was built under it. Some catacombs went down six levels.
