The term “unattended death” offers an explanation of itself just by the name alone. Many therefore understand that it means a situation whereby someone dies when there has been no one looking after him or her for a significant period of time. It thus follows that even after death; the body might still go unnoticed for another significant period of time. This poses a lot of problem to those who are related to the deceased and those living close by. An unattended death cleanup Detroit Michigan is generally more difficult than that of a regular death scene and here are a few factors that cause that.
- Temperature Level of the Scene
