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.

Akron Dead Animal Tip: What to do if you have a dead animal under your house

Having a dead animal under your house is not only very distressing, but it can also adversely affect the health of the inhabitants of the house. This is because the carcass of a dead animal will be infested with dangerous as well as deadly bacteria that not only emit a foul smell but are the reason for many diseases and sickness.

Call in a professional
If you suspect a dead animal under your house, the first thing you need to do is get in touch with the local wildlife control company to help deal with the problem. They are professionally trained and equipped to handle the removal of the dead animal in a very efficient and safe manner.

Find out where the dead animal is
However, the first thing you need to do is determine where and whether there is a dead animal under your house. There are signs that indicate their presence and the first thing to look for is a strong and lingering odor in your home. Second, if you notice a high number of flies around your home, then you should suspect you have a dead animal under your house. Another sure sign that you have a problem is when you see unexplained stains on the ceiling or walls.

Professionals will first inspect the home
When you call in the professionals, they will first of all inspect your home to find out what species of animal has died and then they will analyze the architecture of your building to understand where the dead animal got into your home. Once they determine there is a dead animal in your house, the next step involves narrowing down the precise location and if the carcass is reachable, then they will remove and put the carcass in a bag. They will also decontaminate as well as clean the spot. After getting rid of the animal, they will clean the area and close the original entry point of the animal.

Remove the carcass as soon as possible
It is important to remove the carcass as soon as possible because dead animals can cause many problems and of course they will create a foul smell. The smell of the dead animal will attract other animals who will want to feed on the decaying flesh. Coyotes and hyenas as well as vultures will come to your home and will become a threat to you, your family and your pets as well as the garden and lawn.

Do not come into direct contact with the dead animal
It is also important not to come into direct contact with the carcass as that could lead to several diseases like hepatitis B and C as well as HIV and even tuberculosis. You will also experience nausea and could lose your appetite as well as suffer from fever and body aches, and more. Removing the carcass is necessary but it is also quite nauseating. If you want to remove the carcass, then make sure you wear rubber gloves and also make sure you do not make direct contact with the dead body. You may also consider burying the dead body though before you do anything, make sure you get the approval of the local city and county office.
