An elderly woman dies of natural causes in her residence located near Atlanta, in Helen, GA. As the body was left unattended for several days prior to discovery, an intense odor problem affected the house. Additionally, a fair amount of body fluid seeped on and into the property which had been disturbed by the deceased’s felines.
Keeping the need for timeliness in mind, the Biotrauma Service Team dispatched immediately after receiving the call for service and arrived to the site within drive time (45 minutes). After having inspected the area of contamination, it was apparent that death odor removal treatment would be necessary and that the cats must be removed from the property. Animal control was contacted and notified that the cats had come in contact with contamination onsite. Per the family’s request, the animals were

the supervision of a Master Technician. Virkon (hospital-grade disinfectant, EPA Reg # 71654-7) was
