dead animal removal

Urban pests may find it too comfortable to stay too close to humans. It gives them easy access to food, shelter, and water. Once they enter our house, there is also a chance that they can end up dead there. You may not immediately realize your problem until you start to smell it. Ignoring it may be impossible since the putrid scent will only become stronger as the days pass and it may last for more than a month. We are a company dedicated to improving the locals' lives by ensuring that their house is free from dead animals. We will crawl under your shed, into your attic, and any place you can think of to remove the problem's source. We will sanitize the area to eliminate any health risks. We will then use ozone air cleaners or antibacterial sprays to get rid of the nauseating scent. Our office remains functional 24/7, you can call us during off business hours, and you can guarantee that someone will answer your call. We can provide a same-day job since we know how pressing your situation is. We will also be ready to work on weekends and holidays. Don't panic; dial our hotline number and let us know how we can help.

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.

Salt Lake City Dead Animal Tip:

Odor from Animal Feces in Attic: 

It often is the case, when dealing with an animal infestation in your attic that the most important thing to you is to get rid of the animal. But, did you know that oftentimes you need to clean the attic or space where the animals had made their home afterwards as well? This is, often, the most important part of the entire process, to ensure that your home and family are fully protected from the disease that can be spread through animal feces left in your attic after the infestation has been taken care of. 

When animals make their home in your attic, and are eliminated, they will often leave behind oil, urine, droppings, hair, food, and other materials that can attract either cockroaches or other animals that will then start the process all over again. Besides that, the animal droppings will often grow mold, which can be toxic to both you and your family, as well as any pets that you have in the house, as well. There can be odor problems from the waste that will seep into the floor or walls, as well as multiple other problems that can cause long-term ramifications to your and your family's health. 

After taking care of any animals that have made their home in your attic, you should have it both checked and cleaned, in order to make sure that you do not have to deal with any further problems. Often, you can call a wildlife removal company in order to get your attic fully cleaned, often with something like an atomizer, which sprays cleaning solution over the entire floor and attic, sanitizing the entire area easily, as well as eliminating both animal urine that might be lingering, and any odors that could hang around for a long period of time. If you don't want to buy or rent an atomizer, you can also clean the area manually, but be sure to use gloves, as well as special cleaners that are made for these kinds of odors, and will sanitize the area fully as well. 

With animals that have nested in your attic, you should also keep in mind that you will more than likely have to replace the insulation as well. Mice and rats can chew through insulation, often using it to line their nests and keep them, and their offspring, warm in the process. To fully ensure that your attic is insulated and fully cleaned after an infestation, you should completely replace the insulation to keep future animals out, as well as regulate the temperature of your entire home. 

Fully cleaning your attic after a mouse or rat infestation is one of the most important things that you can do to protect your home and family. Mice and rats are two of the main carriers of disease, and, if the area is not fully contaminated after the mice or rats have died, then diseases can still be transmitted to your family extremely easily.
