The embalming process begins with the "suiting up" so to speak of the embalmers (morticians) to protect themselves from any body fluids and from the chemicals they use to embalm and clean with. From there, there are usually four parts: Arterial embalming, Cavity embalming, Hypodermic embalming, and finaly Surface embalming. These practices are known as restorative arts, and are practiced by most funeral directors.

Embalmers work to keep bodies looking their best for a viewing. The body is washed with germicidal soap, then the embalmer drains the blood and gases before injecting embalming fluid.
