Depending on the regulation in your state, the removal and disposal of a dead animal can be challenging. You can be risking yourself to legal claims and health risks if you plan to do this independently. We can be your trusted ally on removing the carcass of the animal. We will pick both wild and domestic animals on your private property. Upon our client's request, we can also handle the dead body of your pet. We will give them a respectful cremation allowing you to say goodbye to them appropriately. Once you catch the faint scent of a dead animal, call us immediately. You can make matters worse if you fail to implement timely solutions. The body liquids that they will release can contaminate other materials in your house; the odor that they emit will only become more obnoxious. Moreover, you can also be at risk of contracting illnesses and parasites from the expired creature. Our people are trained to implement a personalized solution that will resolve your unique situation. We offer the most inclusive dead removal service, including disposal, cleaning, sanitation, remediation, and home modification. With us, you can ensure that you and your property will remain protected from the threat of wild animals for the years to come.

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.
Marietta Dead Animal Tip: How to Deodorize Your House from a Dead Animal
Although hard to describe, there’s no mistaking the smell of death! Just one sniff of the disgusting and puke-worthy smell of a dead animal is enough to drive your nasal receptors crazy. Animals die in houses for several reasons, ranging from being stuck, injury, abandonment, and even old age. Once death sets in, the body begins to decay. The distinctive smell of death comes largely from molecules like cadaverine and putrescine that are made when protein breaks down. The intensity of the smell is dependent on factors like the size of the animal, environmental conditions, and the time that has elapsed, among many others. If you do nothing, the smell will linger for weeks or even months until the decomposition process is completed. But you certainly don’t want that! That’s why we’ll show you how to deodorize your house from the smell of a dead animal.
Step 1: Locate and Remove the Carcass
This goes without saying: if the source of the smell isn’t removed, you cannot expect to eliminate the smell. That’s why you first need to find and remove the carcass. To find the carcass, you have to use your nose to trace the direction of the smell. Follow the foul scent to the point where it’s most concentrated. More often than not, the carcass will be in a difficult-to-reach spot. For instance, within walls, in the chimney, in the attic, or under the crawlspace. Pick up the carcass and other remnants and place them in a plastic bag before disposal. Ensure that you wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent direct contact with the bodily fluids of the carcass.
Step 2: Clean and Sanitize the Area
Removing the carcass alone won’t cut it. You also need to sanitize the area. You can make use of a bleach solution or enzymatic cleaner to break down the organic materials left. Apply the bleach solution or enzymatic cleaner to the infected area and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then use a rag to wipe off the area. Repeat the process until all stains are removed.
Step 3: Deodorization
Even after you sanitize the infected area, the lingering smell may still be foul enough to cause serious discomfort. That’s why you need to remove any lingering scents. Before you begin deodorization, ensure that your house is well ventilated. Set a fan at the end of one window so it blows the odor out. Set another fan at the opposite end so that it circulates fresh air inside the room.
Here are some common deodorizers you can use:
This is perhaps the simplest way to get rid of the odor. Pour vinegar into multiple plastic cups and place them in strategic locations around the infected area. Vinegar is a strong deodorizing agent, and it will absorb all the lingering foul smells.
Baking soda is also a good deodorant that can help eliminate the unwanted smell from your house. Make a solution of baking soda and water. Spray the mixture within the affected area. Repeat this two or three times daily. After some time, you won’t even be able to tell there was once a dead animal in your house.
Charcoal briquettes can be used to absorb foul smells from the air in your home. Take out a metal tray and lay out a couple of charcoal briquettes on it. Place the tray in the infected area and leave it for a day or two. Note that natural briquettes without easy-light additives or mesquite are best for deodorizing.
Coffee Filter Pack or Coffee Grounds
If you have a coffee machine, take out the coffee filter pack or coffee grounds and place it in the area. Just sit back and let the coffee filter absorb the noisome odor while restoring freshness to your home.
There are several commercial deodorizers you can purchase to help you get rid of lingering foul odors. Popular commercial deodorizers include:
