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.

Memphis Dead Animal Tip: How to deodorize your house from a dead animal

Animals dying in houses are highly unpleasant experiences, mostly because of the associated odor. The smell of dead animals can make an area uninhabitable, whether indoors or outdoors. If an animal dies on your property, you should remove the carcass swiftly and safely. Afterward, disinfect and deodorize the area. This article focuses on how to deodorize your house after removing and disposing of dead animals. Before highlighting the tips for deodorizing your house, you can freshen the air by opening the windows and trying to recirculate the air with a cost-effective method. Recirculate the air by placing one fan at a location that blows out the odor and placing the second in a location that circulates fresh air. These locations should be close to windows. You can deodorize your home with readily available products such as the following:

Vinegar has numerous applications in regards to pest control. One of the applications of vinegar is as a deodorizing agent. Vinegar can absorb unpleasant smells and be applied for removing the dead animal smell from your home. When cups of vinegar sit in an area, they can absorb the smell of dead animals.

Coffee grounds
Using coffee grounds to deodorize an area could be described as a way of recycling the coffee grounds or coffee filter pack. Coffee grounds have excellent absorbing qualities. Place the coffee grounds in the area to absorb the smell.

Charcoal briquettes
Charcoal briquettes are also known for their absorbing ability. When they are left in an area, they can remove the dead animal smell. Remove the dead animal smell with charcoal briquettes by laying them on a metal tray, and placing the tray in the affected area.

Baking soda
This is another household material with excellent odor-absorbing qualities. You can directly sprinkle the powder to remove the dead animal odor from an area. You can also make a solution of baking soda and apply the solution to the affected area. Reapply the solution every day for three days to clear up the horrible smell.

You can apply bleach, or better still, bleached-soaked rags in deodorizing your home. Soak the rags in a bucket of bleach. Remove the excess bleach and strategically hang the bleach-soaked rags in the affected area. The rags should be replaced as soon as they dry out and kept from the reach of kids and pets.

These are some of the readily available household products for deodorizing properties of a dead animal smell.

There are also specially designed deodorizers that could be bought online and in stores and applied to get rid of the dead animal smell.

After getting rid of the smell, you can apply products and items for a general freshening of the air. Such products include aerosol sprays, potent fresh herbs, essential oils, and scented candles.

Deodorizing your house after removing dead animals is important. Deodorize the property to make it habitable again. The smell of dead animals is highly unpleasant. The dead animals still leave a mark even after they have been removed.

Although this has already been inferred, we should also mention the importance of disinfecting a property after removing dead animals from it. The major downsides of dead animals are the odor and the hazardous materials they carry.

Disinfecting caters to hazardous materials, while deodorizing caters to the odor. Your house is still very much unsafe if you deodorize without disinfecting. You may not be able to smell the hazardous materials, but they will still be very much around.

Apart from removing the critters, disposing of them, and deodorizing the area, we should also mention the importance of ensuring that the property remains inaccessible to the critters.

Identify their entry points and seal them completely. You could also take habitat modification and exclusion measures in getting rid of the critters for good.

In conclusion, you can deodorize your house with readily available household products like baking soda, vinegar, and coffee grounds. You can also apply commercial products in making your home free of horrible odors.

Deodorizing your property is an important step for reclaiming it and making it inhabitable after removing carcasses of infesting critters.
