We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:
- Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
- When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
- Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
- Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
- Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
- Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house
Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.
Charlotte Dead Animal Tip: Common Causes of Bad Odor Inside a House
No one wants a foul smell lingering at home. Walking around, you notice a constant foul odor. What on earth can it be? You hunt high and low, but you can’t seem to find the source. Such stenches can waft in from bathrooms and trash cans, or even your pet. However, they might also indicate a severe problem. For instance, sewer smells contain hazardous chemicals. Even worse, it may indicate you’ve got a dead animal stuck in your home. If you’re scratching your head, trying to think up all the possible reasons for the bad odor, read on. Below we’ll discuss all the potential sources.
Rotten eggs Most people learn this at some point in life, but there’s always someone who didn’t get the memo. If you smell rotten eggs, you’ve likely got a gas leak. Given that around half of US homes use natural gas for heating and daily tasks, it presents a serious and widespread issue. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the natural gas that smells. Natural gas is odorless and colorless. Therefore, to help detect leaks, the rotten egg smell is added to the mix. If you notice the smell, vacate the property and call the gas company immediately.
Rotting food If there’s one smell our brains are wired to detect, it's rotting food. Being a source of disease, you’re advised to stay clear if without protection. Most of the time, it is nothing serious: a carrot has fallen down the side of a cabinet, or a bag of sweets your kids have stuffed under the sofa. However, food attracts pests. Insects and rodents will search out food sources. So, cleaning up the rotten food is an immediate priority.
Musty and dusty Mold and mildew have a characteristic and unmissable smell. Most commonly found in bathrooms and other damp environments, look for discoloration on the walls. For people with asthma and allergies, mold is a severe problem that can exacerbate symptoms. If the area affected is only small, using bleach and water will do the trick. However, for widespread sections of mold, call a professional. In the long-term, you will want to improve ventilation, apply mold-resistant paint, and reduce moisture. Doing so will prevent mold and mildew recurrence.
Decaying animals For homeowners, this is a nightmare scenario. The one smell you want to avoid at all costs. You’ll notice a strong, pungent odor that increases in intensity over time. It will resemble the smell of rotting food, but only more rancid. If you detect this smell, take immediate action, locating the source of the smell. You will want to remove the dead animal and use deodorizers to reduce the smell after cleaning the area.
Trash cans It’s likely the first place you think of when something smells bad. After a week-or-so, garbage begins to turn rancid as decomposition sets in. Leftover vegetables and meat are prime food sources for bacteria and bugs.
How to prevent the smell, though? Simple! Sprinkle baking soda at the bottom of your trash can. It will readily absorb the bad smells. It also pays to clean the trash can routinely, scrubbing all the food and grime that coats the inside.
Pet odors Whether dirty or wet, pets are a prime source of bad odors. It may not be a health concern, but it’s more than a little off-putting. Pet urine is a likely source of bad odors, as are the animals themselves. Keeping your animals cleaned every few months will make sure they’re always sparkling. But you can also give them a rinse down after a muddy trip to the park. Make sure to scrub between their paws to remove any hidden dirt. Also, regularly wash any bedding or textiles with which your pets come into contact. And mop around their favorite areas. Doing so will eliminate the bulk of the wet dog smells. If necessary, steam cleaning carpets is an option of last resort, guaranteed to do the trick. If your pets are smaller, such as rodents, cleaning out their bedding and laying down fresh sawdust will solve most smell issues.
