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.
Madison Dead Animal Tip: How to cut out a dead animal from inside a wall
Animals infesting properties and staying in hidden areas such as walls and ceilings are quite common occurrences. The critters can infest such closed and hidden spaces and die there. Animals could die in the wall after they settle in an area and reproduce. Getting them out of such spaces after they die could be a struggle. If an animal dies in a wall, for example, the carcass has to be cut out of the wall. If dead animals are in a wall, the services of professionals could be engaged for cutting out the carcass. The carcasses could also be removed from inside a wall without professional help. This article highlights the process of cutting out carcasses from inside a wall.
Identify the location of the carcass
Although this is quite an obvious step, it is noteworthy and worth highlighting. Begin by identifying the location of the dead animal. The odor of the carcass will easily lead to the location. Follow the odor and locate where the animal died. You can also look for stains on the wall to identify the location of the carcass.
Follow the smell to locate the particular part of the wall the dead animal is. Since the carcass will be cut out of the wall, the exact location must be identified. That way, the wall is not randomly cut in locating the carcass.
After tracing the odor to a particular area or room, sniff the wall to identify where exactly the carcass is.
Yes, it is possible to identify where exactly the dead animal is by sniffing the wall. Sniff the wall until you find the area with the highest concentration of the odor. That area could also have a stain present. Find the exact spot before proceeding with the next step.
Cut the wall
After identifying the location of the dead animal, draw a box on the wall where the carcass is located. Cut the wall with a drywall saw, along the lines of the box you’ve drawn. Cutting a square in the wall is important because it gives enough room to remove the carcass completely. Cutting a square also allows for easy repair. If the wall is not particularly stained or destroyed, the cut square could easily be restored.
Remove the dead animal
After cutting through the wall, you can then remove the dead animal. Wear gloves to remove the dead animal. Remove the animal and place it in a plastic bag. Be sure to remove the maggots and other surrounding pests the dead animal attracted. If the carcass has decomposed, look for the different pieces and remove them completely. Remove the carcass, surrounding pests, and sanitize the area. Disinfect the area with an enzyme-based cleaner. Since carcasses are hazardous materials, it is important that the wall is properly disinfected.
Destroy the carcass
After removing the carcass, destroy it completely by either burying it or burning it. This is an extra step for sanitizing the area and ensuring that the area is completely hazard-free. Burning or burying the carcass is important for eliminating the health risks associated with the carcass.
Repair the wall
After removing the carcass and destroying it, work on the wall and restore it to its initial state. Replace the part of the wall that you cut out.
Cutting out a dead animal from inside a wall is the only way to remove it. Remove the carcass to eliminate the horrible smell and restore your property to its hazard-free state.
When removing dead critters from walls, it is important to wear protective gear. Wear protective clothing like gloves, masks, and overalls to prevent direct contact and inhalation of hazardous materials.
