Human Decomposition

First stage of human decomposition:

The body will take on rigor mortis, begin cell death, and attract insects. This will be the first few days.


The body will become discolored and expanding gases can create a messy explosion.


Liquid leaves the body, skin becomes black, organs and bones break down.

Body decomposition is an extremely pungent, messy, and germ-infested process. Even after a body is taken away, there is a lot of cleaning and santizing that should be handled by trained professionals with proper chemicals and equipment. Please contact us immediately and we will remedy the situation.
