Removing Dead Wild Animals from your Home, Attic or Crawlspace

If you have a concern that there may be the remains of dead, wild animals throughout the inner-workings of your home, then read this article. Dead or rotting animals trapped inside your home present numerous challenges and threats to the health and safety of your family. It’s best advised that you call the experts, before you go exploring your home’s crawlspace on your own.

Among the types of animals you may find in your home are dead rats, dead squirrels, dead raccoons and even dead birds. The dead carcasses of these critters may cause a disturbing smell throughout your home that no amount of chemicals or air-fresheners will be able to mask. The only surefire way to rid your home of the smell is to call a professional wildlife removal company, who will take on the burdening task for you.

The first challenge a professional rodent removal company will take on, will be to locate the animal within your home. Once located, they will take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and your family from any diseases or health hazards associated with dead rats or other rotting animals. Proper disposal of the body and decontamination of the area will ensure the health and safety of both your family and the disposal team. The final steps are to close-up and secure any openings that the animal would have originally used to access the warm interior of your crawlspace or attic. Once properly closed and secured, you can have confidence that this problem will not return a second time.
