Murder Cleanup St. Louis, Missouri
There are few things worse than when a family member or loved one dies suddenly at home. The person finding the body is usually in a state of shock and traumatized. While still a tragic event, if a loved one dies in a long-term care facility or at a hospital, their body is immediately taken care of and the family does not have to worry about cleaning up. When a body is left to decompose at home because no one discovered it for some time, the body and general area become a health hazard. Professionals with the right protective equipment and disinfecting solutions need to perform the cleanup.

Unattended Death Cleanup in St. Louis, Missouri
Unattended deaths are unfortunately common with elderly individuals who don’t have family, friends, or even neighbors that check on them regularly. The body can sit for days, weeks, or even months before someone gets suspicious that mail is piling up, and no one has seen the person outside. Decomposing bodies are a serious health risk. Besides fluids that drain from the body, there is a threat from airborne bacteria. It’s not a cleanup a family member can handle safely. The smell alone will turn your stomach as soon as you enter the home. A murder cleanup company can safely dispose of mattresses and other home furnishings that are not salvageable. You can’t just put them in the trash.
Suicide Cleanup in St. Louis, Missouri
Murder Cleanup Of St. Louis also cleans up after suicides. In the United States, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. Most individuals, 75 percent, choose to cause their own death at home. It devastates the family; they typically experience overwhelming grief or shock. Their first thought after the body is gone is to clean up any traces of the act, but this is never a good idea. When someone turns a gun on themselves at close range, blood and other bodily matter splatters everywhere. It may contain any number of diseases, such as hepatitis B or C. Only specially trained technicians can clean up the area and make certain the area is safe.
Even if a person does not use a gun, their death isn’t pretty. On television, a woman takes some pills, puts on a glamorously dressing gown, and is found nicely posed on the bed. Suicide by an overdose does not look like this. People often choke to death and there is usually a mess. People who intentionally take an overdose of sleeping pills sometimes do it when they know they won’t be discovered for a while, especially if they don’t want anyone trying to save them. The body will start decomposing in just a few days.
