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.

Norfolk Dead Animal Tip: How to find a dead animal inside a house

Having dead animals on a property is never a pleasant experience. The smell alone can make the interiors and exteriors uninhabitable. Carcasses are also hazardous materials. The dead animals can also be a source of disease. Critters can spread the diseases they naturally carry through their carcasses. When there is the suspicion of a dead animal inside a house, finding the carcass should be the goal. Here are the top tips for finding dead animals inside a house.

Follow the odor
The unpleasant odor is perhaps the main sign that a dead animal is inside a house. The odor could also help in finding the carcass. Follow the odor to find where the dead animal is. It is noteworthy that following the odor could be misleading.

To accurately find the dead animal inside a house, specifically follow the direction of the odor. Open the windows and observe where the odor rises from. This is a simple way to pinpoint where the dead animal is.

A warm air current could also be applied in pinpointing the location of the dead animal. Smells are enhanced in areas of high humidity. Increase the humidity within the house to identify the location of the dead animal.

When trying to locate dead animals through the smell, look out for areas where the critters are bound to go to before they die. Dead animals will particularly search for food, water, and shelter before they die.

Look out for stains
Stains can lead to the location of dead animals. Looking out for stains is an effective tip for locating dead animals within crawl spaces. After animals die, they leave stains in spaces such as ceilings and walls.

As dead animals decay, they produce fluids that could stain walls and ceilings. Always check out for stains when looking for dead animals. It is noteworthy that stains could be a result of other occurrences too. A leaky roof could cause a stain on the ceiling.

Looking out for stains could be combined with other tips and methods. Furthermore, looking for stains will help if the dead animal is well hidden.

Check for flies
Pests like house flies are attracted to dead animals. Dead animals are sources of food and will attract house flies to the area. Look for fly activity in the house to identify where the carcass is.

If the activity of flies is increased in an area, there is probably a carcass around. This should be a guide in finding the dead critter. Apart from house flies, other small insects could also be attracted to dead critters. Check out areas with a high activity of small insects. Ants could be attracted to dead animals. This is why you should also check for areas with a high activity of maggots. The activity of maggots always increases around dead animals.

Involve your pets
Pets have heightened senses. Apply the heightened sense of smell of pets in finding dead animals inside a house. Pets could lead you to the location of the dead animal by following the smell. Dogs particularly have a heightened sense of smell and can help to find dead animals. When applying pets in locating dead animals, be careful to avoid putting the pet in harm’s way. Simply apply the heightened senses of the pets without endangering them.

Dead animals are bound to be on a property if there is an active pest infestation. Apply the tips highlighted in this article to identify the location of the critter and remove them.

We should mention the importance of safety precautions when trying to locate dead animals. The carcasses are sources of diseases. Wear protective materials like gloves, overalls, and masks before looking for the critters.

Also, remove and dispose of the carcasses by applying the proper safety measures. Be sure to also disinfect the area after removing the dead animals.
