A decomposing body goes through four stages: autolysis, bloat, active decay, and skeletonization. During the second stage, trapped gases that are generated primarily by bacteria in the intestinal tract begin to build up and release odors.
“A dead body, specifically a human corpse has a rank and pungent smell mixed with a tinge of sickening sweetness. Imagine a rotting piece of meat with a couple drops of cheap perfume and you’re halfway to understanding what a human corpse smells like.
Masking or Eliminating
In most instances products advertised to control or removing odors only mask the odor by adding a fragrant smell to the air ‘on top of’ the original odor. When the limited fragrant smell dissipates the foul odor is still present. The key to eliminating odor to the treat the odor at its source and chemically alter or eliminate the protein causing the odor.
Now there is a solution to actually eliminate the odor at its source. Neutrolene is a chemical neutralizer that permanently removes all organic odors on contact. Unlike other products that mask and deodorize odors, Neutrolene neutralizes and eliminates odors.
We use Neutrolen every day and can testify to how good it is. We use it at scene directly on bodies as well as in the morgue to control ongoing smells. This is a true product that does not overstate its effects.
