Unattended Death Cleanup

Any location where decomposition takes place needs to be properly restored by a professional death cleanup team. If you are in need of Unattended Death Cleanup services, call our 24/7 hotline immediately.


Bearing witness to an unattended death is tragic and when it’s a loved one, the pain can be overwhelming to say the least. The last thing you want to do in such an event is to attempt to do the death cleanup yourself. Bio Recovery offers unattended death cleanup services all throughout the U.S. so families have someone to turn to in times of need. To sanitize and deodorize the area where the death took place is a strenuous task both physically and emotionally – don’t put yourself through that.

It happens more than you think, for all different reasons. Though we may think heat and air conditioning is the standard, many live without adequate heating and cooling. In the US, there were 477 deaths between July and August 2020 from natural heat alone, with another 564 occurring from the natural cold between December to February the same year. These are examples of potentially unnoticed deaths, whether it be caused by this or another reason, unattended refers to when a couple of days, or years has passed without discovering the body.

Body decomposition, though natural, is very hazardous to anyone in or around the area when and even after it has occurred; which is why licensed and certified cleanup professionals should always handle the location’s cleanup needs.

Why Can't I Do the Body Decomposition Cleanup Myself?

Many times a decomposing body will emit a smell in the air that’s hard not to recognize. The longer the body sits, the more dangerous the areas around it will become, as bodily fluids will leak out. Decomposition attracts insects, due to the release of bacteria that occurs; which will allow the further spread of the toxic bacteria, consequently also increasing the smell. Have a professional assess the situation before it gets worse.


After Death Cleaning Services

Many who have suffered an unattended death are barely recognized by family and friends. After a human body fails to pump oxygen to its cells, decay occurs and with rapid speed.

This is the cause for color distortion, longer fingernails, bodily fluids leaking and a different looking appearance.

This altered appearance can be distinguishable even with a medically monitored death but when an unattended death occurs the changes accelerate and intensify.

Our specialists within our company are experienced in dealing with such situations, whether caused by a suicide or crime scene, and will work diligently to provide restoration to your home.

We understand that you need time to process these events, we’ll be considerate, confidential, respectful and our cleanup team will arrive in unmarked vehicles, to ensure privacy in this matter.

We will speak to no one besides our team members and you, unless we are legally obligated. We are dedicated to helping you get through this time and decreasing the responsibilities left to you.

The Post Mortem Cleanup Process

It's important to have full transparency over the cleaning process, particularly where it concerns cleaning your home. We understand these situations are untimely and overwhelming to say the least; which is why we offer full transparency over our process.

You want a company that is not only fully licensed, bonded, and insured, but offers complete transparency on our process both over the phone and online.  After all, you want a company that respects your property and privacy during possibly one of the most difficult times in your life.

The most relieving part of this process is knowing your situation is covered by the homeowners/property or renters insurance. We handle the entire process so you can focus on grieving. That's why it's one of the first pieces of information we collect. We collect home insurance policy, including policyholder name, the address the incident occurred at, and the policy number if you have it.

If you don't have it but know you or your landlord has insurance, that's okay, we work with many insurance companies and can still assist you, even if you happen to discover that you don't have insurance at all.

Our Promise To You

We fully respect the desire to have full transparency over what's happening during the cleanup of your property. We completely respect our customers concerns over allowing a cleaning company to enter their home, business, etc. and are grateful for the trust placed in us to clean their belongings during this delicate time. That is why we stand by our service, promising to:

  • Only work on your property once you have authorized and acknowledged what the cleanup entails before and after the job is closed.
  • Take care of only the areas specified.
  • Remove no personal belongings from your property.

We value your voice throughout the entire process; after all, we are grateful for trusting us with your home! We're striving to restore the cleanliness and safety of your environment--that's it.

Paying for Dead Body Cleanup Costs

In the rare incident is is not covered, we will still work with you to bring you the best price available with flexible payment options.

I contracted the services of BioRecovery for a Biohazard clean-up in my home. From Alex, the lead on the cleanup team, to Jessica, who coordinated with the insurance company, everything was done top-notch. The team worked clean and quickly to remove all the damaged property and Jessica was instrumental in getting my insurance company to cover the replacement of the items which were damaged. Just as important, as promised, they accomplished everything within the financial limits set by my insurance company. There were no additional bills. This is the company to use, if you are ever in need of a biohazard clean-up.
