How Can I be Sure There is a Dead Animal in my Home? When an animal enters and dies in your home, it is important that experts remove the carcass as soon as possible. The first thing you will notice when an animal has died in your home is the odor. As the animal decays, the stench becomes more and more unbearable. However, odor is not the only concern when animal carcasses are present in your home. Oftentimes when we remove dead animals, they are covered in maggots, ticks and other creatures, which can bring disease into your home. How Does Critter Control Handle the Removal of Dead Animal Carcasses? The first step is to locate the carcass. No matter where the animal has died, the trained professionals at Critter Control can locate and remove it, including in walls, crawl spaces, between floors and in attics. Next, the dead animal is removed, along with anything else it has left behind, such as body fluids and insects. Then, we deodorize the area and make sure that all residues are gone. If you begin to smell something foul in your home and suspect that an animal has died there, call Critter Control today at 1-800-CRITTER to get the animal carcass safely and expertly removed!
