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.

Oakland Dead Animal Tip: How to find a dead animal inside a house

When your home is infested with bothersome animals, like rodents, opossums, bats and the like, it is possible that some will die inside your home. Animals will seek out shelter in your home for many reasons. It is out of the weather, close to food and water, and seems like a safe place to nest and raise young. There are many explanations possible for their demise inside your home as well. Illness, fighting, complications from birth, or accidents can all contribute to an animal dying in your home. They may also die in your domicile if you put out traps or poisons. When an animal dies in your home, you may not always find the body right away. Animals, especially small ones, can fit into tiny places like between walls, and under heavy furniture. This can lead to a myriad of problems. A dead animal can attract bugs and other carrion feeders. It can harbor bacteria and diseases. It can also cause an ungodly smell that is nauseating and detracts from your home’s ambiance.

To locate an animal carcass in an indoor setting, if you do not actually see it, the stench is your only location device. Because the airflow throughout your home will indicate where a dead animal is, it is important to know how to use this information. Because the smell is carried on air drafts, the carcass is not always located in the exact area that the smell is the strongest. Go to the room/area where the smell is the strongest, and start there. Remember, the nose knows!! Put your nose against the wall and follow it to the spot where it is the most pungent. Ambient temperature is another factor. If it is a blistering day outside, and the smell is the most powerful, chances are the body probably is not located under your house or in your basement. If the smell is strongest in the heat of the day, begin your search in the attic or upper floors of your home! Take note of animals favorite places and search their- often animals that are near death will head to their nests. If you use poison, look near water sources, as many poisons cause excessive thirst.

Once you have located the animal, it may be necessary to cut open a wall or use tools to reach into a small space to remove it. Always wear gloves, goggles and a mask when removing the dead body, no matter what the stage of decomposition. Feces, fur dander, and blood can be infected and cause a number of health problems. Dispose of the body in a safe manner as well. If it is a rat or mouse, secure it in a plastic bag and dispose of it in the outside trash. If it is a larger animal, you might need to bury it. If you are not equipped to handle the dissolve of bodies, you might want to call a professional. In fact, a professional animal removal service will not only handle body disposable, but will gladly help you find the body, remove it, and help you avoid an infestation.
