Typically, the death odor removal is part of the death cleanup process. However, if the odor is lingering, it is because the scene either wasn’t completely remediated or the odor has infused into the carpet, drapery, or other porous items. Some items can be cleaned, but others need to be discarded. If the dead body odor has not been handled correctly, the distinctive odor of death will remain.

What Causes the Foul Odors?

Once a person dies, the decomposition process begins. Bacteria that is already in the body will start to digest the tissue and bodily fluids. The release of gases from the bacteria is what produces the putrid smell of death. Initially, these gasses infuse into the air molecules which hold the odor in the immediate area of the death scene. As more time passes, the odor can make its way into other parts of the home and eventually infuse into soft, porous items such as clothing, paper, drapery, cloth couches and chairs, and more.
There are various factors that determine the exact scent of decomposing bodies and contaminated areas. Some factors contributing to varies scents are:

  • The genetic makeup and diet of the deceased
  • How long the body was left unattended
  • The climate where the dead body was located
  • The type of bacteria present in the body

There are also enzymes that are active during the decomposition process that contribute to the dead body smell. Additionally, maggots and flies play a part in the decomposition process.
