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.

Melbourne Dead Animal Tip: How to Deodorize Your House from a Dead Animal?

After finding a dead animal has been left rotting in your home, you’ve taken all the appropriate steps for removal. Whether you find the carcass in the chimney, wall, attic, or somewhere else, you’ve finally managed to dispose of the body. Or, in a less ideal scenario, you cannot remove the dead animal and are forced to leave it in place. In either case, you will likely be left with a residual smell of decomposition. For any homeowner, this is an unwanted situation. So, all attempts must be made to remove the odor and return the property to its initial condition. Below we will discuss all possible solutions for removing the dead animal smell and deodorizing your house.

Ventilation and cleaning
Other methods of removing the smell include keeping the house well-ventilated. Letting a generous amount of air into the room will prevent odors from lingering. Electric fans are also an excellent option, as well as air filtration systems. Naturally, you will want to thoroughly clean the affected area using an enzyme-based cleaner alongside another detergent. The more animal matter you remove, the fewer sources of smell remain. Nor should you be concerned about enzymatic cleaners; they’re biodegradable and safe to use around pets and children. Remove any affected textiles and place them in a wash (hand or machine). You can also consider laying them in sunlight, which will act as a natural disinfectant. Therefore, dry outdoors if possible.

Use vinegar to deodorize your home
Vinegar is renowned for its cleaning abilities. It provides one of the simplest and cheapest methods to remove the smell. Take cups of vinegar – reasonably well-filled - and distribute them around the affected area. Over time, the cups of vinegar will absorb the smell, eventually leaving it odor-free. It will mean you will have to put up with the smell of vinegar temporarily. But it beats the smell of decomposing animals.

Try baking soda
Another cleaning classic: baking soda is an excellent deodorant for eliminating unwanted smells. Make a solution of baking soda mixed with water, and place in a spray bottle. Spray around the affected area 2 to 3 times per day. The baking soda will dry and absorb the odor. You’ll be amazed at how effective it is.

Coffee filter packs or coffee ground
Coffee grounds have tiny pores that allow the absorption of surrounding odors. The smell will gradually be absorbed by placing a coffee filter pack or a jar of coffee ground near the affected area. This method has the benefit of being pleasant in its aroma.

Purchase a branded product
Many products are available on the market, claiming to use complex science to capture and eliminate odors. Such products differ wildly in their effectiveness and may be no better than household items. Still, if you’re having trouble eliminating an odor, it may be worth investing in this potential solution.

Cat litter: an odor eliminator
You might be surprised to learn that cat litter is an incredible odor eliminator. Being highly absorbent and porous – made from baking soda and activated charcoal – it readily absorbs dampness and odors. Place a bag containing cat litter near the source, or even better, sprinkle into the location, then leave for a few days. Finally, sweep up the cat litter and throw it away.

Charcoal briquettes
Like cat litter, charcoal briquettes are highly absorbent. Their porous structure allows odors to access and stick to their surface. They also have the added benefit of being small, allowing placement directly at the smell source. They’ll readily absorb the smell and are then easily collected and thrown away.

To recap
There are numerous options available to deodorize a home after a dead animal. First, action must be taken to disinfect and ventilate the affected area. Then, an odor-absorbent material can be used to eliminate the smell. These include:
Baking soda solution
Coffee ground or filter packs
Branded odor eliminators
Cat litter
Charcoal briquettes

All the recommended solutions will reduce the smell. However, a combination of methods will likely yield the most effective results. So, if you’ve got some vinegar and coffee in your cupboard, give both a try. The more absorbent the solutions, the less the smell will spread.
