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.
Nassau County Dead Animal Tip: How to Find a Dead Animal Inside a House
Nothing’s more frustrating than getting back home from work only to be welcomed by a noisome smell once you open the door. It immediately strikes you that you have a dead animal inside your house. Maybe you try to locate it by checking different spots but your efforts prove futile. Well, checking random spots won’t cut it. What you need is a strategy that’s sure to help you locate the carcass ASAP. In this post, we examine some of these strategies.
Where are Dead Animals Found in Homes?
Ever wondered why it’s quite unusual to find dead animals lying out in the open? Most times, they’re usually stuck up in a hidden corner. Here’s why that’s the case:
When a raccoon, squirrel, mouse, or any other animal is about to die - either due to injury, poison, old age, or any other reason - it quickly recedes to a hidden and calm place where it can rest. This is strikingly similar to how we also retreat to secluded places when we’re feeling sick.
If the animal fails to recover, it eventually dies at that hidden spot. And once decomposition starts, the stench becomes unbearable for the home residents, who are further frustrated by their inability to find it.
Tips to Find a Dead Animal in Your House
There are several ways to find a carcass in your house. You may choose to turn over every object in your home - though that’s a failing strategy, just like many other strategies. Here are some true-and-tried methods guaranteed to help you locate the carcass.
Follow the Smell
Maybe you’re wondering, “What do you mean; follow the smell - the very same smell I’m trying to evade?”. Well, unless you’re willing to wait till decay is complete, you have to use your nose! Why? This is perhaps the most effective strategy for finding a dead animal.
Open your windows wide to allow air in. Once opened, the smell of the dead animal will rise from a particular direction, carried by the air current. Use your nose to sniff out the direction of the odor. You’ll find the carcass at the point where the smell is most concentrated.
A useful tip is to make use of warm air current. Increasing the humidity of your home accentuates the foul smell of a dead organism. This makes it a little easier to trace where the noisome smell is coming from.
A decomposing carcass is a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, and as such, it attracts all manner of pests including flies, ants, cockroaches, maggots, and more. Blowflies, for example, can detect decomposition just 15 minutes after an animal’s death and they are attracted by bodily fluids and gases. Notice the direction flies are going to and follow them. Also, take note of any trail of ants and follow it. Simply let the pests do the searching for you.
Use Your Pets
Your pets can also help you locate a carcass. Dogs, in particular, are adept at that. Why? The part of a dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is about 40 times greater than ours. By taking advantage of your dog’s smelling prowess, you can easily trace the location of the carcass. However, take extra precautions and stay in control of the situation when using your pet to trace a dead animal. Dead animals are a breeding ground for bacteria and germs, and you want to ensure that your dog avoids direct contact with the carcass.
Look for Stains
If you notice stains on your ceiling or wall, you might assume you have a leak. However, when the stains are accompanied by a terrible odor, chances are you have a dead animal there. A decomposing carcass releases bodily fluids that stain the surrounding areas - and these stains can help locate the carcass if it’s readily visible.
Get a Professional
Finding and removing a dead animal from your house is a risky endeavor. This is due to the health risks associated with dead animals. A dead animal removal expert will safely help you locate and get rid of the carcass. They will also clean up the infected area and decontaminate the space. They are your best bet to finding a dead animal.
