The idea of finding a deceased friend or loved one is a terrifying and saddening thought. Unfortunately, people do die alone, and it is inevitable that they will be discovered after the fact. The scene of an undiscovered death is dangerous for several reasons as there are biohazard materials like blood and bodily fluids present. If you discover an unattended death, you need to stay clear of the scene and call the proper authorities. After the authorities respond to the scene, you will need to get in touch with licensed professionals who can clean and safely restore the scene.
