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.

Charleston Dead Animal Tip: A dead animal inside the air conditioning ductwork

It is not unusual for animals to move into your home in search of shelter, water, and food. They are often looking for a place to winter, or an appropriate place to raise their young. At one time or another, a number of these animals will die in your home from one of any number of causes.

Animals can die on your premises due to your actions: laying out poison, setting traps, or somehow sealing up their entrance/exits.

They can become incapacitated and die from injuries: they could be attacked by a pet, get in a fight with other animals, be electrocuted, drown, die of old age, in childbirth, or become ill

Some will die as a result of an accident such as falling into a chimney firewall or a deep pipe or cistern and becoming trapped. These animals die from dehydration or starvation.

Whatever the reason, a dead animal in your home is very disturbing. There is not only the smell, there is the realization that the animal is rotting somewhere in your walls. Many times homeowners believe that an animal has died somewhere in the air vents or A/C system. While this is not impossible, it is extremely rare. If you smell a decaying body, chances are you do have a dead creature in your home, but not in your air vents. When an animal dies in or under your home, the odor molecules or “stench” if you will is concentrated around the remains. When the central air unit is turned on, the air throughout your home is circulated. This means that the smell from the carcass is as well. The odor can be so repugnant that it seems to be coming from the ductwork.

This does not mean that animals could not cause lots of damage to your central air system. Rodents, opossums, raccoons and other creatures can find their way in through your HVAC system. They enjoy chewing up the ductwork and insulation, and it makes a great highway for travelling through your home. They can also chew up your wiring, and soil your ductwork with feces and urine. Holes in your ductwork and ruined insulation, and destroyed electrics can cost homeowners thousands of dollars, not to mention the discomfort of being without your central air until it is repaired.

If you see or hear the tale tell signs of animal activity in your home, do not wait until they have destroyed your HVAC system. Contact an animal removal service as soon as you can. A trained professional will come to your home and assess your personal situation. This professional will thoroughly explain all the options available to you. They will then help you draft a comprehensive plan to rid your house of unwanted animal activity and implement that plan. They will dispose of or relocate any animals for you. Once you are critter free, your technician will help you to lay out a plan that will help prevent any future animal infestations
