What to Expect During Dead Animal Removal

You may not realize an animal is living in your home until it dies. The first thing you will notice is the terrible odor as it starts to decay. Though the smell may be minimal at first, it will begin to increase and become a lot stronger, almost unbearable at times.

The strength of the odor depends on some factors including:

  • Animal Size & Species
  • Carcass Location
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • State of Decomposition
  • Air Flow

In addition to the odor, you may begin noticing the presence of swarm flies as well as stains on the ceiling or wall. If you suspect you have a dead animal in your home that needs to be removed, call Critter Control® of Tampa right away.

Upon arriving at your home, we will do a thorough inspection using various tools to locate the animal trapped inside your walls, attics, chimney, or underneath your floorboards, etc. Once we find and remove the carcass, we will fully deodorize and sanitize the area to ensure we kill any harmful microorganisms and bacteria.

If the animal’s decomposing body seeps into your attic insulation or ruins a section of your attic flooring, we can repair the damages for you. With our attic insulation and restoration services, we will return your home to its original state by fixing any of the damages caused by the nuisance wildlife.

It’s also necessary to understand how the animal got inside your home in the first place so that you can prevent it from happening again. Once we remove the dead animal, we’ll let you know of any entry points that need to be repaired to keep future critters from getting inside. Common problem areas include the roof soffits as well as the chimney, crawl space, attic, vents, etc.

Rely on the Professionals

When it comes to dead animal removal, it’s best to let a wildlife expert take care of the problem. As you can see, there is more to the process than just getting rid of a dead animal from your home.
