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.

Toledo Dead Animal Tip:

What to do if you have a dead animal under your house

Finding dead animals under your house is quite common. It is important that homeowners know how to handle this situation to prevent the development of unpleasant circumstances. In this article, we highlight what homeowners should do about dead animals under their house. 

Why animals could die under your house

The most obvious reason for animals dying under your house is that they infested your property and made their den under your house. If there is an active pest infestation on your property and you used poisons, you should expect dead animals under your house. 

Whether or not the critters were nesting there, they could die under your house. It has been observed that dying critters tend to go to hidden places. 

Dead animals could also be under your house because your pet brought them there. This is possible if you let your pet roam around areas where they could pick up carcasses. 

Animals that nest under houses

The animals that could die under a house are those that nest in and frequent such areas. The common animals that nest under houses include birds, rats, skunks, and raccoons. 

What to do about dead animals under your house

Remove dead animals from under your house after you notice them. It takes just about three days for the carcass to start decaying and producing a horrible odor that could make your house uninhabitable. If you did not notice the dead animal under your house before it started decaying, the odor will give the presence of the carcass under your property away. 

After noticing the presence of the dead animal, work towards removing it swiftly and efficiently. Carcasses are quite harmful and dangerous to have around. Apart from the horrible smells they produce, carcasses are also sources of infectious disease agents. For example, raccoons, carriers of rabies, infest under houses, and could die under a house. You could remove the dead animal yourself or get a professional involved. 

If you will be removing the carcass yourself, here are our tips for the successful execution of the process. 

Use protective equipment

Dead animals are hazardous materials and should be completely treated as such. Wear protective gear to avoid contracting the different diseases dead animals could be associated with. The diseases associated with dead animals could come from the animal itself or the different pests that they attract. 

The protective clothing materials you will need include overalls, gloves, and masks. They protect against direct contact and inhalation of hazardous materials. 

Find the exact spot 

If you're not sure of where exactly the carcass is on your property, begin by searching for it using clues like the smell and signs of the activity of the critters. Openings that could serve as entry points for critters could also lead to the carcass. 

To find the exact spot where the carcass is, follow the smell. You can also follow the activity of pests like flies. 

Remove the carcass

After finding the carcass, remove it and place it in a plastic bag. Remove the carcass without any form of direct contact. 

It is important that you remove the carcass and other associated materials. If the carcass was already decomposing, maggots will be in the area. Remove the maggots too. You should also remove all parts of the carcass if it had disintegrated into different parts. 

Dispose of the carcass

After removing the carcass and placing it in a plastic bag, dispose of it according to local regulations. Local regulations specify the safe and efficient methods of getting rid of carcasses. Burning and burying could be part of the measures allowed in your area. 

Disinfect the area

After removing the carcass and disposing of it, disinfect the area from which it was removed. This is so that the area is free of all traces of hazards. Disinfection is an important part of removing dead animals from under a house. 

Block entrances

After removing the carcasses and associated traces, block all possible entry points to prevent the situation from repeating itself. If the critters do not have access to under your house, you will never have to deal with a dead animal under your house again. 

If there's a dead animal under your house, you should remove it swiftly and efficiently, according to the tips highlighted in this article.
