dead animal removal

We are Ann Arbor Dead Animal– a team of fully trained operatives that specialise in the field of removing, preventing, and controlling nuisance wildlife in the Michigan area, with expert knowledge in the removal and sanitation of dead wildlife. It is never pleasant to find a dead animal on your property, and the situation gets a little more daunting when you have absolutely no idea how the animal died. Rodent poisoning? Starvation? A disease that could be passed along to you, your family members, or your pets? Or – worse than that – customers at your business. Live nuisance animals come with their fair share of disease concerns, ranging from rabies to histoplasmosis, and with various potentially deadly conditions thrown in for good measure. Dead animals have the same risks – and maybe even more so, in some cases. Dead animals can still transmit the rabies virus, as well as other biological hazards, which is why it is such a good idea to hire in a team of professionals. We can take care of this job for you! Just give us a call on 734-256-4394 at any time of the day or night to get more information, or to schedule an appointment with one of our friendly, fully-licensed, and properly insured operatives.

We are experts in dead animal removal, and take our job seriously. When removing dead animals, we do a COMPLETE job — not only do we remove the dead animal from your home or yard, we also decontaminate the area, deodorize it, and dispose of the animal or cremate it. If you aren't sure whether the stench in your house is due to a rotting carcass or another reason, we can sniff it out with our noses from our years of experience. We remove dead raccoons, dead opossums, dead skunks, dead squirrels, dead birds, even dead dogs and cats. We frequently remove dead rodents from inside walls, because poison kills rats and mice, who die in your house. We completely solve your dead animal problem by taking these steps:

  • Sniff out the dead animal if it is somewhere in your home
  • When necessary, for example if the animal is in a wall or under your house, cut a hole to remove the animal
  • Remove the dead animal, safely and completely (and seal the hole if needed)
  • Finish the job by decontaminating and deodorizing your home
  • Properly dispose of the dead animal through incineration or other means
  • Prevent it from happening again by finding out how they got in your house

Dead animal carcass removal is specialty work. Sometimes the job is simple, such as a dead opossum in the yard, in which case we can simply wear our gloves and respirator mask, bag the carcass, and take it away for incineration. Sometimes this is more complex, such as when the dead animal is under a home crawlspace, under a porch or deck or shed. Or if the animal is larger, such as a dog or a deer. The most complex cases are dead animals inside the house. The animal may have died inside the attic, or down in the walls, or the duct work, or any other part of the architecture. You may have a bad smell in your home, and you're not even sure what's causing it. We've removed not just dead animals, but rotting food, bad mold, etc. We specialize in locating the source of the smell, and we very commonly cut a hole in the ceiling or wall to remove the animal. We remove every bit of the carcass, mop up the juices, vacuum the maggots, spray it and wipe it down with disinfectant, cleaner, and we repair the hole we cut. In some cases we use ozone machines to neutralize odor.

Ann Arbor Dead Animal Tip: How long does it take for dead animal odor to go away

Scientists say that dead animal odor is made up of sulfur dioxide and methane as well as some derivatives of benzene that along with a number of hydrocarbons cause an odor that takes a long time to go away. Dead animal odor is disgusting and sickening to everyone but vultures. Most humans are put off by not just the smell but also the sight of a bloating corpse.

Harboring diseases
Dead animal bodies harbor a number of diseases that can not only sicken humans but also kill them. These carcasses will continue to give off a bad smell until they are completely decomposed or until they dry out completely. If the carcass is lying on damp ground, then the animal odor will last for even longer. Rats that have died close to a steam pipe will give off an odor that will last for many weeks. However, the odor given by a dead mouse may only last for a day. One mouse won’t create much of an odor, multiple ones will create lasting odor One dead mouse may not even give off any odor but if there are multiple dead mice, then the smell could last for longer and become a real problem. Dead rats give off a nasty smell that can last for up to a week, but in some cases, this smell may last for an entire month. The best way to deal with dead animal bodies is by removing their bodies and ventilating the site. Of course, prevention is the best cure.

Things to consider
There are several factors that determine how long the odor from a dead animal lasts. First of all, it depends on the number of dead animals. Second, the precise location of their dead bodies affects the time the odor will last. Third, the size of the dead animal also determines how long the odor will last. Finally, the odor lasts for different periods depending on how long the carcass has been lying since death.

Odor from one dead animal won’t last long
If the number of dead animals is more than one, then the odor is going to last for longer. If the number of dead animals is small, then the odor will disappear much sooner. The location where the carcass is lying also determines how long the odor will last. If the dead body is lying close to your central living room, then the odor is going to much more noticeable. However, if the carcass is in the attic, then the odor will be more noticeable and will permeate even your living room. When the size of the dead animal is large, then the odor from the carcass will take a very long time to disappear. However, small dead animal bodies will only give off an odor that lasts for a few days. Finally, if the dead animal has been lying about for some time, then the smell has already have begun to fade. However, if the animal died recently, then it can take a few days for the odor to enter your air.
