You have so much to do as a rental property manager. There are the tenants and their requests, as well as the repair service crews who you have to supervise. You will have to deal with late rent payers, as well as other stressful situations. It is also inevitable sometimes that you may have to face the duties that go with the death of one of your tenants. There are a lot of such deaths going on everywhere. The only disturbing thing about it is where society currently is, where one can die and this monumental event shall go unnoticed for quite some time.
An unattended death is the kind that can happen to a person when they are alone in their house, and for their body to keep decomposing while no one takes notice of what just happened. This kind of situation could be caused by many events, such as natural causes, an accident, a suicide, or even homicide. There has always been a fascination over the fact that death can happen and no one even notices. There are so many people living in places where there are no relatives of friends who can drop by to check on them. Even at work, there are few colleagues who would bother to go check on others if they do not show up for work.
For all of that, there is still a need to call in a professional death cleanup company. You need to check out their reputation, to be sure you are dealing with the right experts. They should have the right equipment and disinfectants, as well as highly trained experts in their field. They need to be reliable and observant, and go about their duties with discretion and minimal disturbance to your other tenants.
It is important that when it comes to the cleaning up of the rooms, that all bodily fluids and tissue is removed from in there. A decomposing body is a large collection of some deadly pathogens. You can thus see why they need to remove all traces of any piece or drop of tissue and blood from the house. It would be dangerous not only for the next occupants, but also for the neighbors next door. This is why you need to remove all traces of germs, bacteria, airborne and bloodborne pathogens, as well as active disease. The cleanup company, therefore, needs to come prepared to attend to the clothes, carpet, wood, flooring, sub-flooring, in between walls, on the ceiling, and any other surface in the rooms. After their job is done, the house should be thoroughly decontaminated and deodorized.
You need to liaise with the relatives of the deceased to ensure their belongings are handled with respect.
