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.

Providence Dead Animal Tip: What to do if you have a dead animal in the chimney

Having a fireplace is important to keep warm during the chilly winters. The chimney’s primary function is to direct smoke away from the fireplace and out of the house. Well, that’s its function from your perspective. A nuisance animal sees the chimney as a warm, dark, and cozy place it can reside. But sometimes, wild animals die in the chimney for a whole array of reasons. Your first hint of the problem is when you begin to notice a strong emanating stench from your chimney. When that happens, what are you supposed to do? In this article, we explore some practical tips that can help you out.

Why Do You Have a Dead Animal in the Chimney?
The most common reason for having a dead animal in your chimney is if it gets stuck. Here are some ways an animal may get stuck in the chimney:

Chimneys Lined with Metal Boxes
Older chimneys are usually lined with brick. This makes it easy for animals to get a toe-hold and climb upwards out of the chimney. However, in newer chimneys, metal boxes are used, making it impossible for animals to get a grip to climb out.

Abandoned Babies
Animals like squirrels and raccoons build their nest in the chimney. From time to time, the mother leaves the nest in search of food. If the mother meets its demise in the outside world, its babies are left with no parental care and will consequently die.

Injury/Old Age
An injured or old animal might be so weakened it is unable to get out of the chimney. If that happens, it will eventually die there.

How to Remove a Dead Animal in the Chimney
Your best shot at eliminating the smell from the carcass in your chimney is to get rid of it. You also don’t want a dead animal in your chimney because it exposes you and your family to potential diseases. Here’s how to go about removing a carcass in the chimney:

Wear Protective Clothing
Before you begin any removal process, ensure you are well-protected as the bodily fluid of a carcass is a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. Be sure to wear gloves, a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and regular shoes. That will help you avoid direct contact with bodily fluids.

Remove the Carcass
You can either access the carcass from the top or bottom of the chimney, depending on which position is nearer. If the carcass is near the bottom, open the damper all the way. Then use a flashlight to inspect the areas above the firebox. If the carcass is closer to the top, you’ll need to get to the roof. Using a hook and chimney rod, grab the dead body and pull it up. Once you’ve removed the carcass, place it in an airtight plastic bag. Note that if the body is caught between the flue and surrounding brick, accessing it might be difficult. In that case, the best option is to get a professional involved.

Get Rid of the Body
There are several options for disposing of a carcass. Some of these include burying, burning, or using a waste disposal service. However, what’s acceptable is dependent on the wildlife rules surrounding the disposal of wildlife in your district. That’s why you need to verify with your local wildlife authority.

Decontamination and Deodorization
Use an enzyme-based cleaner to decontaminate the space. This will help to kill all microscopic biohazards. Several products can be used to eliminate the stain and odor. Examples include cornstarch and cola. Pour cornstarch or cola on the stain and let it sit for some time. The product will dissolve the stains and contain the odor.

If there’s a dead animal in your chimney, then it must have gotten there somehow. That’s why you need to figure out how the animal got there. That way, you can make the necessary repairs to ensure the problem doesn’t reoccur. If you don’t have a chimney cap, install one to prevent easy access to your chimney.
