How to Remove Dead Body Odors

When removing odor caused by a dead body, including animal and human carcasses, it is recommended that full personal protective equipment (PPE) including gloves, bloodborne pathogen coveralls w/ boots, and goggles be worn.

*It is advisable that all porous items and surfaces that came into contact with bodily fluids be discarded as bio-hazardous waste (contact the local EPA office or OSHA office for biohazard waste disposal information for your location).

Method One: Very Heavy Odors

  1. Remove entire carcass.
  2. Into a pump up sprayer, mix two (2) ounces of Unsmoke Last Resort with eight (8) ounces of Unsmoke Liqui-Zone. Fill with water to make one gallon of solution.
  3. Spray all affected areas. Unsmoke Liqui-Zone is an oxidizing agent and must touch all affected areas to be effective. 
  4. Evacuate the area of all living things (plants, people, and pets), and use an ozone machine for 24-48 hours.
  5. It may be necessary to seal surfaces that have come into direct contact with odor-causing organisms with B-I-N shellac-based primer-sealer.

Method Two: Light or Moderate Odors

  1. Remove entire carcass.
  2. Into a pump up sprayer, add 6.5 ounces of Unsmoke Liqui-Zone and then fill with water to make one gallon of solution.
  3. Using a pump-up sprayer or ULV fogger, spray all affected areas. If applying Liqui-Zone to fabrics, a fine mist is suggested. Unsmoke Liqui-Zone is an oxidizing agent and must touch all affected areas to be effective. 
  4. Evacuate the area of all living things (plants, people, and pets), and use an ozone machine for 24-48 hours.
  5. It may be necessary to seal surfaces that have come into direct contact with odor-causing organisms with B-I-N shellac-based primer-sealer.
