Though most people die with others around them, some people pass away without others knowing for hours, days, or even weeks. Dealing with a loved one’s unattended death can be a grief-filled process. Adding the cleanup on top of it, often makes the process far more difficult. Whether there are bodily fluids or you need to clean up a house after a death, Georgia Clean is here to take the cleanup off your hands and to make the whole process as easy as possible.
When a person dies and the body is left for as little as a day, particularly in the high humidity of Atlanta, the body will begin to decompose and start emitting a strong odor. During this process of decomposition, bodily fluids seep into all the surrounding nooks and crannies of the area, finding their way into porous surfaces, both seen and unseen, damaging property and making a space unsafe and uninhabitable. In this case, you need to start the cleanup process as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage.
Can’t I Clean It Up Myself?
Whether it’s a home, business, or vehicle, bodily fluids such as blood can carry numerous blood-borne pathogens, viruses, and bacteria such as C. Diff, HIV, and Hepatitis and these bodily fluids seep into all kinds of surfaces. They infect areas not seen by the naked human eye. For someone untrained in dealing with medical waste, this can be incredibly dangerous. It can cause potential life-long implications if every area is not thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated. Cleaning up after an unattended death yourself or letting your loved ones or staff undertake the task is incredibly dangerous for themselves and anyone else who may come into contact with the area for years to come.
What is the Process in Atlanta for Unattended Death Cleanup?
We will typically arrive after the Fulton County Medical Examiner has removed the body and the Atlanta Police have released the dwelling. Once the affected area is available for entrance, our skilled experts at Georgia Clean will arrive at your home or place of business within the hour in an unmarked vehicle with personal protective equipment and professional-grade cleaners to meticulously remove all bodily fluids and traces of blood. After removing all clothing, furniture, and carpet in direct contact with the body, we work diligently to discard all medical waste. We try to save for you all items that are able to be disinfected and decontaminated.
Once we remove all materials medical waste, we carefully disinfect and decontaminate all infected areas. We make sure they are safe and clean by using professional and powerful cleaners not available on the wider market. This ensures your family and staff are safe from all potential diseases.

We use a revolutionary process to scrub the air, attacking and removing the odor-causing molecules in all the sheet rock, carpet fibers, and duct work.
