dead animal removal

Do you believe that you have a dead animal somewhere in or around your home? A bad smell is often the very first thing to give the game away, but – at that point – the damage has already been done. The beginnings of black mold may have started to appear, and flies will more than likely have already been attracted to the carcass. It is only a matter of time before scavengers join the party, such as rats, mice, raccoons and opossums – and then you’ll have a much bigger problem on your hands. We know how complicated wild animal intrusions on homes and business can be, and that’s why it is our main priority to ensure that your property is restored to its former glory in as quick a time as possible, and with minimal disruption to your day-to-day schedule.

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.

Columbia Dead Animal Tip: Do Odor Removing Bags Work?

If you have had a recent mouse or rat infestation, and have set out poison or trapped them, you might be surprised that you now have a bigger problem to deal with: a dead rodent smell that is starting to permeate your entire house, making it all smell like death. You might be unsure of how to proceed forward now, eliminating the smell in a non-toxic, natural way, that will get rid of it while still being safe around your pets and children. Maybe you are coming up empty on what you should do, and are debating either dealing with the smell and praying it goes away, or calling in professionals, paying a good amount of money to find relief.

Luckily, there are many non-toxic, safe, and natural ways to get rid of the smell of dead rodent in your home, with the bonus that you don’t even have to touch the dead animal, or call in expensive wildlife experts, as well as cleaners after the fact. One of the most popular ways, that works the best, are odor neutralizing bags- often used by Pest Control professionals to remove dead animal smells, as well as the smells of urine and feces that are associated with dead animals.

Many of these bags sound too good to be true in the advertisements: you don’t have to encounter the dead animal, or source of the odor, so what are you supposed to do? Well, using them is incredibly simple: just hang a few bags near the odor, and enjoy the relief that comes with having the smells begin to immediately dissipate.

These bags work by attracting the smells, using a combination of natural minerals, then neutralizing them without masking them with perfumes and fragrances, making the process much more comfortable for you and your family. These bags are all-natural, as well as biodegradable, making them safe to use around both children and pets, without the worry that they might be accidentally ingested. They will also cover odor for up to one-hundred square feet, and last between three and four months, ensuring that the smell will not come back. To use them, simple hang between two and four bags in every room that you are smelling the rodent in. if the rodent died in your attic or crawlspace, you should hang a bag within the range of that, as well.

While this might seem like magic, or too good to be true, these bags have rave reviews, and are often used by Animal Control professionals to get rid of the smell of dead rodent, as well as the smells that can be associated with feces and urine left by the dead animals. These bags work by absorbing the odor, soaking it up like a sponge, then neutralizing it with Sodium aluminosilicate, without depending on a fragrance to mask the odor.

If you are worried about having to call in a professional to deal with the smell of dead rodent in your home, and being concerned with the chemicals and toxins that they might use in your home, then look into odor neutralizing bags.
