A very important function of trauma scene cleanup is unattended death clean up in or on a
property. Unattended death cleanup can be among the most
difficult and stomach turning scene cleanups. Usually the
body has been there for days to weeks and decomposition has set
in. In this period of time the body goes through natural
processes like rigor mortis and the decomposition of the
body. Decomposition refers to the reduction of the body of a
formerly living organism into simpler forms of matter. The body of
a living organism begins to decompose shortly after death. Such
decomposition can be categorized by two stages: In the first stage,
it is limited to the production of vapors. In the second stage,
liquid materials form and the flesh begins to decompose. Ambient
conditions affect decomposition. A body that is exposed to air will
decompose more quickly and exhibit more insect activity than a
buried body. That is why an unattended death can be so
difficult to clean up. In some cases such as environments where
temperature remains cool stage two has not yet set in. So the
unattended death cleanup is not as difficult. But even in
these cases you will usually find that the odor is still
overwhelming and odor remediation will be needed.
