dead animal removal

Death is a part of the natural cycle of life; however, a dead wild or domestic animal in your property can present challenges and problems. You are likely unsure what to do if you stumbled upon a dead raccoon, porcupine, rodent, or pets in your yard. You are probably inclined to remove this yourself; however, we discourage you from doing this, especially if you are unsure of the cause of death. You have us to support you in this challenging situation. We are certified by the state to conduct such services. Therefore, you can guarantee that we will do everything in accordance with the regulation. We will be preparing the body for incineration. If you want to say a proper goodbye to your demised pet, we can also arrange their cremation service. Many people will think that it is the state's responsibility to dispose of their dead animals; while this may be true when it is on public property, it will be the landowner's duty to deal with the carcass if it is found in their property. Don't risk exposing yourself to the health risks; with us, you will never have to worry about the possibility of breaking the local ordinances and contaminating the land or water source. Allow us to take this messy job from your hand.

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.

Philadelphia Dead Animal Tip: Odor Detection Services

Having a terrible odor in your home isn’t a pleasant experience. It’s even more frustrating when all your attempts to get rid of the smell are futile. The putrid odor slowly, but steadily, permeates through everything in your house! While there are several odor removal products, ranging from sprays, sponges, bags, candles, electric deodorizers to plug-ins, without identifying and removing the source of the bad smell, any solution you attain will be a temporary fix. But if you’ve experienced it, you can attest that most times finding the source of the smell can be very difficult. At this point, the best option might be to bring in professionals. In this post, we explore some of the common sources of bad odor in the house and how involving odor specialists can be helpful.

Sources of Bad Odor
There are several potential reasons why you have a noisome odor in your house. Some of which include:

Live or dead wildlife
Wild animals like raccoons, rats, bats, and more, are not known for their endearing smell. Most of these creatures are dirty, and they use their droppings and urine to pollute your house. Their feces are also a major source of the smell in the house. Dead wildlife will begin to decompose, and this process is known to release putrid gases that will make your entire house smell like rotten eggs.

Sewer problems
If your sewer system is faulty, then you might begin to notice a strange sulfur odor. What you’re smelling is hydrogen sulfide, and it is produced during the decomposition of feces. This smell can become unbecoming. That’s why it’s important to properly maintain your sewer pipes and plumbing functions.

Gas leaks
Natural gas that we use for cooking and heating is colorless and odorless. However, due to its highly inflammable nature, natural gas companies give the gas a characteristic smell. This makes it easy for users to know when there is a leak. If you smell gas in your home, then you have a leaky gas pipe that needs to be fixed.

Why Make Use of Professional Odor Detection Services?
If you’ve tried to find and address the source of your odor issues but failed, then it’s time to call in a professional. Here are some reasons to consider their services.

Technical know-how
Companies that specialize in odor detection have crew members with vast experience in the field. That’s what they do for a living! With their wide exposure, they’ve encountered several scenarios of odor problems from different clients, and that gives them a robust understanding of the causes of bad odor, how to diagnose it, and how best to fix it.

Specialized equipment
Maybe you’re not having success detecting the odor because you don’t have the right tools. A good professional has specialized equipment for odor detection. Some even make use of advanced technologies like ultrasound, endoscopic video, and thermography, among many others, to assist them in their tasks.

Whether it’s the putrid smell from a carcass or your sewer system, one of the dangers of a bad smell is the health risk it might pose. If you’re trying to identify the source of the problem yourself, you might inhale harmful gases. On the other hand, professionals have specialized protective equipment to ensure they stay safe during the process. That way, you don’t have to worry about bacteria like salmonella, leptospirosis, or rat-bite fever that can be transmitted from the dead animal carcass or its feces.

Adequate sanitation
A professional odor detection service is about finding a permanent fix to the problem. And that means dealing with the source of the problem! If you have a wildlife infestation problem, they can suggest a wildlife removal company that will help you handle the problem. Once the source of the problem is rectified, they will carry out a thorough cleanup of the entire space. If it was a wildlife problem, they will get rid of the urine, feces, nests, maggots, fungus, flies, contaminated food, and anything else that might be contributing to the smell.

Wrap Up
Having technicians to sanitize and deodorize your house might cause slight discomfort for you and your family. But this is negligible compared to the stink you’ll have to endure or the health risk you might expose yourself to if you decide to fix the problem yourself.
