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.

Chattanooga Dead Animal Tip: Common causes of bad odors inside a house (mold, rotting food, dead animal, etc)

When you notice an offensive smell in your home, it is not always simple to find the source. Most yucky smells in your home are easy to identify. Things like burnt food, a dirty litter box, and spoiled milk are easy to identify, but more sinister smells that hang around can be a constant source of irritation, especially if you cannot pinpoint the source. Here are some tips for locating and alleviating the cause of the foul odor.

If you notice a “musty” or “old” smell in your house, hidden mold could be your culprit. Mold is not only a nasty smell some types can be toxic. For the safety of you and your family, you need to figure out where the mold is hiding. Signs to look for are:
Leaky pipes
Inadequate ventilation in your bathroom, laundry room, or kitchen
Window and door seal accumulation
Refrigerator drain pan
Dirty shower or washer drain traps
Wet carpets or floors
Water damage in walls
For mold problems that are not toxic, like the mold in drains or found on windowsills and doorframes, just clean the mold with a soap and water mixture. Using a bleach wash or white vinegar will also clean it off. For toxic mold issues, you should always consult a professional to avoid serious health risks. Prevent mold growth by keeping areas clean and dry as possible to inhibit growth.

Years of living can cause the furniture, drapes, Carpet, and Walls of your home to stink. Some Factors that can contribute to the funk are smoking, messes from babies/children, cooking smells, pet urine and dander, and spilled foods. Deep cleaning your home to get rid of as much of the stink as possible is the only real solution. Here are some cleaning tips that can help.
Warmed vinegar helps to soften substances like tar and nicotine that accumulate over the years. Put it in a spray bottle and treat the affected areas. Vinegar not only removes stains but smells as well. Ammonia and water will also remove cigarette tar and nicotine from walls and furnishings, as well as eliminating odors and stains A bleach and water mixture is perfect for removing stains and disinfecting as well.

Other sources of stinky smells are:
Your dishwasher (the trap and rubber seals) Air filters (central air & window units)
Garbage cans /disposals
Use any of the solutions mentioned in the previous section to clean these.

A final horrifying answer to your stinky smell is a dead animal decomposing in your home.
If this is the case, the smell will be overpowering in one particular area. Here are some tips to help you locate the carcass If it smells stronger in the heat, try The Attic. Be sure to check all the insulation. Sniff your Walls. Sometimes animals will be trapped in your walls and die. This usually means you have to cut a hole to get the carcass. The Chimney and damper can be a death trap for many animals. Removing them is tricky and gross!
