A death cleaning service company must adapt to each case

When it comes to unattended death cleaning, not all cases are alike, and a post-mortem cleaning company must adapt to each situation. The professional must take certain factors into account, such as the nature of the death and the time that elapsed between death and the discovery of the body.

A body found several days or even weeks later has begun to decompose. Bacteria develop and spread throughout the home, leading to the development of unpleasant putrefactive odours. For obvious reasons, the entire dwelling must be decontaminated and disinfected. The future occupants of the home must also be kept in mind, as they must not contract any illnesses as a result of poor cleaning.

crime scene cleaning, biohazards cleanupDepending on the cause of death and the environment, the after death cleaning service will be different.

The cause of death must also be taken into account. A natural death discovered the same day will not have as much impact on the home as a death involving haemorrhage or following a fall. The presence of blood will have to be dealt with meticulously, and depending on the floor covering, the work will be different. Depending on the porosity of the floor, blood will penetrate and it may be necessary to remove a wooden floor if the blood has had time to become embedded in the wood and under the floorboards. It is also important to check for blood behind skirting boards or in tile joints, especially if the body was discovered at a late stage.

A professional post-mortem cleaner must be rigorous and precise

In short, you need to be thorough and not just take a superficial look at the layout of the death scene. Unanttended death cleaning carried out superficially will generate unpleasant odours that will return as soon as the fragrance of the cleaning products used has worn off. It's not enough to mask the odours; every nook and cranny where blood has been present must be decontaminated.

Crime scene cleaning, suicide or unattended death cleaning disinfection in UK

Nova Clean, the after-death disinfection company, cleans up after suicides and scene crime in UK involving the presence of blood and body fluids. Suicide scenes and crime scenes are particularly traumatic for relatives and it is almost imperative to call in a crime scene cleaning specialist or a professional after death cleaner. Suicide by stabbing or shooting generates blood spatters that must be carefully removed. Soiled textiles such as curtains, carpets, mattresses and sofas will usually have to be disposed of and treated. They cannot simply be cleaned, as this could contaminate future residents. It is not possible to be certain of correctly decontaminating a carpet or mattress soiled by bodily fluids and eliminating bacteria and unpleasant odours.

It is important to intervene as soon as possible after the discovery of the body to avoid excessive contamination of the premises and problems with neighbours in joint ownership if odours and insects develop. We apply the protocols for cleaning up the premises in compliance with the regulations, with agents wearing protective clothing, masks, gloves and goggles.

When you call on our company to clean up after a death, you can be sure of a quality service that is discreet and respectful of families, so that you don't have to face painful and often traumatic moments. It is also the assurance of a perfectly disinfected, healthy and clean flat or house as quickly as possible to avoid any health problems.

Advice for your after-death cleaning

Someone close to you has died and you feel capable of cleaning up after them yourself? Of course, there's nothing to stop you doing it, but there are a few things you need to bear in mind and use common sense.

Cleaning up after a death is not the same as regular housework!

Cleaning a home after a death is no ordinary task! It's not just a question of making the home visually clean, but also of disinfecting it. There's no question of hiding the misery and contaminating the future occupant of the home or the neighbourhood with bacteria or viruses. It's your responsibility to decontaminate the home properly.

You have to protect the health of future occupants and neighbours.

Do you feel capable of completely sanitising and disinfecting the deceased's home? Make sure you don't put your health at risk: a body begins to decompose a few minutes after death and billions of bacteria contained mainly in the intestine and liver begin to spread throughout the body. Putrefaction begins, releasing bodily fluids and cadaverous odours. The body is now exposed to its environment: flies and insects are attracted by the smell of cadavers, where they will lay their eggs.

Professional equipment to protect during trauma cleaning

As scientific studies have shown, you will be working in an environment contaminated by bacteria. There's no question of risking your health. Masks, gloves and protective clothing are essential for cleaning up while limiting the risks.

Protecting the environment and neighbours during cleaning

When cleaning up after a death, there is no question of displacing the problem of contamination. It makes no sense to clean up the scene of the death in order to contaminate the communal areas of a building or the environment. Don't think about mopping up the blood of the deceased and then throwing it in the rubbish bin of your condominium. Blood, body fluids and human remains are infectious waste that must be treated in accordance with standards.

Similarly, a mattress soaked in blood should not be cleaned or disposed of as waste. A wooden floor soaked in blood should be removed to ensure that the blood has not seeped under the floorboards and treated at a waste disposal centre. Certain materials or textiles that are difficult to wash will have to be treated and incinerated in accordance with standards. These are just a few examples to help you understand that cleaning up after a death is far from a standard job and that using a cleaning company after a death is not a luxury.

Our quotes are completely free of charge, so don't hesitate to send us photos of your home for the quote, along with your contact details. We'll give you a clear, precise quote within a day. We will intervene as quickly as possible depending on the urgency of the situation, with maximum tact and discretion.

Clearance and cleaning of a flat after death
I own a flat in which my tenant has just died. She was suffering from hoarding disorder. The flat is in an apocalyptic state (rubbish strewn all over the floor).
Before she died of natural causes, she had been placed under guardianship and admitted to the retirment residence. Her social worker moved her out, but had left a window open when she left. Pigeons then got into the flat and caused a lot of damage.

I'd like you to clear out the flat and disinfect it. Can you give me an estimate? Do you know of a funeral cleaning company near me?

Complete cleaning of flat following death of several weeks

The flat is currently under seal: as soon as the seal is lifted, it will be essential to clean it. We would like an estimate for cleaning a 60-70m² flat following the death.

Cleaning a flat after death and hoarding disorder
Hello, I have to clear out the flat that my father, who died on 23 April, was renting. It's a 35 m2 residential flat. I've already thrown out most of it (rubbish and anything else that was lying around), but there's still 1 2-seater sofa, a bed with mattress, a small desk that can be dismantled, a small half-moon table and a few objects. It's all gone. What's more, he was suffering from hoarding disorder. The flat is therefore very dusty and needs to be cleaned: carpets, walls, sanitary facilities, kitchen, cupboards. Please contact me to discuss the matter. The notary in charge of the estate suggests that the invoice be sent directly to the firm to be paid out of the estate.

Estate cleaning following death
The firm is in charge of the estate of Mr P., whose body was found at his home several weeks after his death.

As a result, the flat needs to be cleaned to make it accessible without having to be cleared.

Please send me an estimate.

Estimate for disinfecting after death
Please find attached photos of the police station taken on 16 April 2023, following the death of my Uncle who had been dead for at least 15 days.

I would like an estimate for post-mortem disinfection, starting with, in order to remove any health risks and unbearable smells:

- disinfection by nebulisation,
- cleaning of the area where the body was found (floor between the toilet and the kitchen),
- cleaning the toilets (no flushing for 20 years),
- possibly cleaning the kitchen sink if necessary (not visible in the photos).
In order to be able to access and retrieve the administrative paperwork (for two days).

Then, in a second phase, the flat will be emptied and cleaned, including the furniture.

Since 16 April 2023, the two kitchen windows have been open, but the stench persisted on 09 May 2023 and prevented access without a spray mask.

The flat is on the 2nd floor without a lift, and on the garden side there is the possibility of placing a skip under the balcony and the bedroom window.

There is also a 3 square metre cellar to be emptied, which is probably in the same condition.

Cleaning company after death
My ex-husband died in his home in tragic circumstances. The family is unable to clean the flat. We're looking for a post-death cleaning company. Can you give me an estimate for this type of service?

60 m2 rented flat.

Post-mortem cleaning and hoarding house
My brother was found lifeless in his home. Apparently, he died around 18 May and was found on 2 June. The body was found on the floor of his living room. According to the owner, the house has a floor area of 100 m² and a basement of 80 m². There is an attic, which we were unable to access. We don't know whether he used it or not.

He must have been suffering from hoarding disorder, because the flat is full of rubbish and bins. The living area needs to be disinfected. The non-habitable areas, the cellar and garage, need a good clean, in my opinion, as do the corridor and the stairs leading to the garden.

His daughter will take over and choose the company to do the work. I'm sending this request for a quote to your company and others. To facilitate your study, I've just drawn up plans of the different parts of her home; you'll find photos of the different areas. I've tried to be as complete and precise as possible to enable you to carry out your cost study.

As she is not on site either, we have entrusted the keys to the property to the Mairie. So, if none of us can be there when you arrive, we'll check with the Mairie to see if we can give you the keys directly, if you're detained, or if we have to go through the landlord, who has also been informed of the situation and whose contact details we'll give you in due course.

My niece would like to know if she can be present on the day of the clearance to collect her father's belongings, in particular photos, carpentry equipment and tools, household appliances, etc. that she would like to resell. I'll leave it up to you to reply directly to her e-mail (copied to you) or by telephone, please.

As my brother also has a minor son from a second marriage, the Juge des Mineurs, via the Notaire, has to give his agreement to clear the house. We don't yet know how quickly this can be done. We would like an estimate for post-mortem cleaning, storage and disinfection of the property. The company selected will be notified as soon as we have this information, so that they can carry out the clearance and cleaning/disinfection as quickly as possible afterwards, so that the property can be returned to its owner.
