Dead Animal Odor

The gut-wrenching odor that arises from dead animals in your home isn’t just harmful to your nose. It is the sign of a much bigger problem; a rotting carcass. Dead animals in your home can lead to parasite infestation and diseases spread throughout your home. Worms, bacteria, maggots, parasites, and viruses all love to live within a rotting animal carcass, and without proper disposal, your home and family could be in danger.

Where is it Coming From?

Dead animals are found in anyplace they would go if they were still alive; most commonly being your attic, crawlspace, or in your walls. The rotting smell that permeates throughout your home will only get worse if not taken care of promptly, as the carcass will begin to bake in the sun or harbor infectious bacteria. Other places homeowners have been known to find dead animals include:

  • Pools
  • Burrowed under homes
  • Stuck in A/C vents
  • Chimneys
  • Under porches or verandas
