dead animal removal

Dealing with a dead animal will not be as straightforward as it looks. Once the animal is sick or wounded, it will crawl and hide in the inconspicuous areas of our house where it can die in peace. Therefore, removing the dead animal will usually involve crawling and going through poorly-lit, cramped and tight spaces. It is essential to call the help of our trained professionals for your expired animal problems. We will be going through crawl spaces just to retrieve the animal. We will also deodorize and decontaminate the place. We have the equipment and facility to dispose of the carcass properly. To some people, dealing with animals can also be emotionally upsetting, especially for their pets. Our people have been trained to deal with this request tactfully. We will make it our responsibility to make the necessary arrangement to give your pet a proper cremation. Our company serves the local community and the nearby cities. Our founders have long years of experience when handling wildlife conflicts. They understand the biology and behavior of animals, allowing them to provide the best method to eliminate the dead animal. We also make sure that we will hire people that are equally professional and knowledgeable about the job. For additional concerns and questions, do not hesitate to call us.

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.

Rochester Dead Animal Tip: Odor Detection Services

In homes, there are numerous potential sources of foul odors. These include fire and smoke damage, mold, sewage, or even a prior occupant’s cigarette smoking. Then there are the genuinely disgusting odors. We’re talking about the stench from animal urine and feces or a rotting carcass. These are smells with which you simply cannot live.

There are a great many homemade solutions for deodorizing a property. They’re the kind of solutions passed down from mother to children. For instance, baking soda mixed with water is an excellent odor absorber. Others include coffee filter packs, charcoal briquettes, and even cat litter. These porous substances can absorb the odor into their structure. However, when dealing with a rotting animal smell – one that may have been there for weeks – they don’t cut it.

That’s when you call in odor detection and removal services.

Why do you need an odor detection service?
It may sound a little strange. Why do you need odor detection; can’t you just use your nose? Well, yes and no. Obviously, if you can’t smell the problem, you don’t know you have one. However, odor detection services will do more than simply confirm a smell. Merely noting the smell doesn’t tell you the cause. They may even use a particular machine to detect the odor. These highly sensitive devices can differentiate between different odors, for instance, confirming the presence of mold or rotting food. Considering sewer smells are often mixed with hazardous chemicals, detecting the smell can be vitally important. Extended exposure to sewer gas is known to cause fatigue, headaches, dizziness, poor memory, and even pneumonia. Even worse, if you smell rotting eggs, you could have a natural gas leak. So, if you’ve had a lingering smell you want sorting, these are the people to call.

Common bad odors
Fire and smoke: The smell of smoke is instantly recognizable. It coats itself to textile and surfaces, lingering for a long time after, thereby necessitating an odor removal service.
Water and mold: A burst pipe or a damp bathroom can cause a headache-inducing damp smell. Remove the persistent mildew smell and prevent further spore spreading.
Animals and pests: In an attic, crawlspace, or basement, animals will soil the area, leaving behind a nasty smell. Some may even die, beginning to decompose. In summer, the smell is horrendous.
Sewage: The smell of sewage is strong and potentially toxic, being a noxious concoction of gases and chemicals.

When to consult a professional?
Here are five clear signs you need to hire an odor detection professional: There is a severe air quality emergency. If you find it hard to be on the property or the smell is eye-watering, immediately contact a professional. It may be hazardous to people’s health, including your family. Have you searched the property looking for a source of the smell but can’t locate it? Don’t battle on alone. Odor detection specialists will be able to help solve your issue. Are people – including neighbors – complaining about the smell? That’s a surefire sign the stench is getting worse. Human noses naturally acclimatize to the smells in an environment. So, it might not seem as bad to you. Can you see wide scale mold damage? It could extend further than you might imagine. It’s also a significant health risk. You’ve had prior problems with pests, and you suspect there may be a dead animal somewhere on your property.

Odor removal techniques
Once you’ve contacted an odor specialist, they’ll detect the source and begin removal. These days, there are various advanced deodorization techniques available. These include:
Thermal Fog: A warm thermal fog neutralizes odors that have penetrated a home.
Air scrubbers: High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are often used to remove odor-causing particulates from the air.
Hydroxyl generators: By generating hydroxyl radicals, odorous particles are eliminated from the air.
By using the most advanced equipment and technologies available, you’re guaranteed to eliminate odors faster than household methods. With years of experience, professionals can enter a home, rapidly identify the problem, and develop and initiate a reliable and effective solution. So, whether the odor is from smoke or decaying animals, you’ll restore your property and ease your mind.
