dead animal removal

Welcome to Canton Dead Animal! We are a company servicing the Ohio area that specialises in the removal of nuisance wildlife, both dead and alive, as well as the prevention of pest problems in residential and commercial properties. It is very common for wild animals to curl up somewhere safe, warm, and dry when they are sick, or sense that they might pass away – and that’s why dead animals in the home are often in difficult-to-reach spaces, such as wall cavities, in basement foundations, in the attic, in crawl spaces, and more. We can remove 100% of dead animals in any building, no matter the type, size or style, and no matter where in the building the carcass is situated. As well as locating and removing it, we can then safely and legally dispose of it, as well as clean up the area to make it appear that we – and the wild critter(s) – were never there at all. In some cases, this can be a simple deodorising or sanitising job, but in others can require full restoration – repair of drywall, re-painting, and more. We can take care of this part of the job just as much as the physical removal of nuisance wildlife, with professional grade repairs that come with a full warranty. Grab the phone and give us a call at any time of the day or night to find out more, or to book an appointment with one of our professional, fully-licensed, and highly-trained field technicians.

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.

Canton Dead Animal Tip: A dead animal inside the air conditioning ductwork

A dead animal inside the air conditioning ductwork will cause a strong offensive odor that will spread through the property. This unpleasant situation should be handled right to remove the carcass and eliminate any possible negative consequences.

We highlight the processes involved in handling the situation in this article. It is common for animals, especially small critters, to infest air conditioning ducts. Critters like to nest in small hidden spaces, away from their guests. Air ducts are a favorite nesting environment for the critters. The critters infest the ducts and cause significant destruction. Even when they die in ducts, the critters still cause a lot of trouble. The only way to address the situation is to remove the critters and dispose of them properly and efficiently. You do not want the offensive odor to remain or the spread of hazardous materials. Let’s consider the different processes involved in handling a situation where a dead animal is in the air conditioning ductwork.

Finding the carcass
The first process involved in getting rid of the carcass from the air conditioning ductwork is to find the carcass. As with carcasses in other parts of a house, the smell should lead the way. Follow the smell to find the location of the carcass. To identify the location of the smell accurately, turn off the HVAC system before beginning to follow the odor. This is because the HVAC system distributes the smell and makes it more difficult to pinpoint. Follow the odor to the area with the strongest smell. The carcass is most likely in the vent closest to the area with the strongest odor.

Removing a carcass from the air conditioning ductwork
After tracing the smell to the concerned duct, you can go ahead with removing the critters yourself or engage the services of a professional. You could also get a professional for the entire process. To remove the carcass yourself, first, remove the register cover to access the duct. After removing the register cover, look inside the duct with a flashlight to find the carcass. You may find the carcass immediately. If you do not find the carcass immediately using the flashlight, you can use supporting devices like a telescoping inspection camera. Telescoping inspection cameras are great for maneuvering with the turns of the ducts. If you followed the smell well enough, you won’t need a lot of maneuvering to find the carcass. Remove the carcass with gloved hands and place it in a plastic bag. If the carcass is a bit out of reach, use a tool such as a bent clothes hanger. If the carcass is very hard to reach, you may have to leave it for the professionals. After removing the carcass, dispose of it according to the regulations in your area. Be sure to wear protective clothing before attempting the removal of the carcass to protect yourself from contacting or inhaling hazardous materials.

Cleaning up the air conditioning ductwork
After removing the carcass, clean up the area to remove all traces of the hazardous materials. The hazardous materials include the carcass itself and the pests that the carcass attracted to the area. Apply a disinfectant to the affected area and clean it up completely. Cleaning the area will remove the carcass that can spread diseases. Cleaning up the area will also prevent the growth of mold and bacteria and reduce the activity of pests.

Repairing the air conditioning ductwork
After removing the critters and cleaning up the area, repair the openings that served as entry points for the critters. Since the animal died in the duct, that means it had access to it. Seal the entry points to prevent another animal from going into the ducts. Dead animals inside air conditioning ductworks require immediate action. Remove the carcass and dispose of it swiftly and efficiently. After removing the carcass, eliminate all traces of the presence of the critter with a thorough cleanup process. Be sure to also repair all openings so that the ductwork remains inaccessible to critters so that a dead animal is not found in the ductwork in the future.
