dead animal removal

As a company that began as a small startup business, we are proud of our achievements and recognitions we have acquired in the past ten years. We have been acknowledged as the top service provider in the area for more than three years now. We started offering our business to people we know; after delivering the same quality of service and result, we have grown significantly. We are now the preferred partner of the commercial and homeowners who need to deal with a demised creature. Removal of the decaying carcass is tricky and complicated; you need someone with the knowledge and skills to do it. Our people have completed the required hours of training before they are deployed on the job. It is also necessary for them to go on a regular seminar and additional exercise to ensure that they can deliver the latest and effective removal methods. Our people are licensed and covered with liability insurance. After the carcass has been removed, we will place it in a sealed container and prepare it for incineration. We will dispose of it according to the rules by the state. We aim to use the least invasive procedure; however, if we need to cut through your drywall, we will restore it to its previous state after the dead body has been retrieved.

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.

Scranton Dead Animal Tip:

Why do raccoons die inside houses or attics?

Whether you live in the great outdoors, or an urban setting, you are not safe from infestations of wild or "nuisance" animals. One example of a creature that is not only a pest, but can cost you lots of money in cleanup and damages is a raccoon. Here are just a few of the problems you can suffer at their tiny little hand like paws.

These sneaky scavengers will never miss the chance to rummage through your garbage, scrounge unwatched pet food bowls, or even chow your livestock feed. Feed. They will destroy your yard and garden digging up tasty treats as well. If you think having them in your yard is bad, just waiting until Mother Raccoon decides that your attic or garage is the perfect spot for her nursery. She will move right in and tear up whatever she needs to make a comfortable place for her babies. Sometime in the spring, after 2 months of gestation and preparation, she will give birth to 2-4 young who will live with her for up to 10 months. That means if you have a nesting raccoon you might have 2-5 guests for a whole year! Raccoons are very aggressive when protecting their young. For all these reasons, we suggest eliminating them as soon as you realize she is there. One problem that DIY'ers run into when trying to clear their homes of pests is the possibility of causing more problems than solutions. Often the homeowner will lay out poison or traps to catch the raccoon. If a raccoon is poisoned, or hurt, there is no guarantee that it will not die IN your home. In fact, it is more likely to go back to its nest if sick or injured. If you seal entryways (like cracks crevasses, open window in the attic, etc), without thinking you could block a mother from reaching her young, or seal them all inside to die. You could put out a one-way exclusion funnel trap and keep the raccoon from coming back in, however if there are already babies in the attic that you don't know about……they are going to die there! YUCK! There can, of course, be other reasons that lead to a " ‘coons" demise in your home. Old age, sickness, childbirth, or an accident could all be a contributing factor. Often very young raccoons will fall inside of a wall or space like the chimney damper and become trapped. The mother cannot get to them so they eventually succumb to dehydration and starvation. In rare instances, another predator, like your family pet could mortally injure the raccoon and it goes off to die.

Avoid many of these problems with these "common sense" steps. Clean your yard and home and remove all excess clutter. Clear up brush and deadfall that makes good places for raccoons to hide. Keep pet food and other temptations in put up, and use sealed cans for your garbage. Check your home exterior for access holes, animal droppings, or animal sightings. Making your home seem undesirable to these pests and you can stay critter free!
