Decomposition Cleaning

When people who aren’t socially active and don’t see family and friends on a regular basis pass away, it can be a while before their absence is noticed. We offer a decomposition and unattended death service throughout the UK for exactly these situations.

Once a body dies it starts to decompose within hours of the event and, unfortunately, the only way to permanently remove the odour is by removing every trace of biohazardous waste.


This can include disposing of any furniture soiled with body fluids, cutting out walls, cupboards, floor tiles, bedding and floorboards. Once all the biohazardous materials are removed we begin the odour removal treatment. This process is very precise and is not as simple as spraying fragrant chemicals in the air. Although it may mask the odour for a while, it is in no way a permanent odour removal solution and the smell will quickly reappear.


The job of clearing up after an unattended death and removing the smell left behind isn’t taken care of by the police, local authorities or landlords. It is only specialist cleaning companies like Complete Environmental Services that are insured, trained and equipped to deal with these unfortunate situations.


We are happy to work with the family by dealing quickly, compassionately and effectively with the aftermath of any such event, our team is sensitive to the grief that situations such as this causes, and will thoroughly explain the process that may be required for any particular situation.
