Bloodborne Pathogens

Cleaning up after a dead body is removed isn't something that anyone wants to deal with, esp. the family members of the individual. Because bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV, Hepatitis B and C, and MRSA could be lurking, calling a professional crime scene cleanup company such as SERVPRO of East Honolulu is recommended because they know how to clean, disinfect, and restore the affected area, MAKING LIKE IT NEVER EVEN HAPPENED.
Chemicals, blood, and other body fluids from a decomposing body can seep into the subflooring and other porous materials. Even if an area appears to be clean after a dead body is removed, it might not actually be "clean." A dead body can affect a site within minutes of death. The most damaging component of a scene after a dead body is removed is the potential presence of bloodborne pathogens, which are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans.
