The foul stench of decomposing flesh is usually the first sign that there may be a dead animal somewhere around your property, and this is because animals rarely die in plain sight. They prefer to crawl up into a place with some form of shelter. The rotting remains of any animal are unpleasant and unhygienic for anyone to handle, except if you have the proper training on how to handle it.

The remains of wild animals are usually a site crawling with tons of disgusting maggots and unfriendly microorganisms that can infect humans and cause a number of deadly infections and diseases. Plus, it attracts lots of insects including cockroaches, moths, flies, mites, wasps, etc. Even while alive, many animals act as hosts to pathogenic microorganisms that cause deadly diseases to humans and pets, and when they die their carcass is still able to spread deadly diseases, especially when handled unprofessionally.

To remove dead animals from your property we first have to find them, this is easy if the animal died in plain sight. But if your only evidence of a dead animal is an unpleasant smell, then our first assignment will be to find the carcass.

You will be surprised at where animal carcasses can be found, animals can die inside walls, beneath the insulation, in the ductwork, under the bathtub, and some other crazy places. And when trying to locate the carcass, our most valuable tool is our sense of smell. Yes, we use our noses to find the animal.

Disposing of rotting carcasses and cleaning up the contaminated site can be a tricky business and without the proper precautions you can get yourself infected with some deadly virus or fungus, and even worse spread the infection to those around you.

Removing dead animals requires some form of safety measure such as wearing protective clothing, cleaning up and sanitizing the affected area with a powerful disinfectant, deodorizing the environment to restore some form of normalcy, and generally making it safe again for humans and pets.
