sorry to hear of your loss
If the combs are worth saving you could try soaking and washing in tepid water with washing up liquid ( the type you wash plates and dishes with) then soak in water with bleach added, allow to air dry until the smell of the bleach goes.  It may clean them enough that they pose no threat.
listen to others. You do not always know as much as you think you do.
