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.

Saint Louis Dead Animal Tip:

Odor detection services

Unusual odors could emanate from residential, commercial, and industrial properties. It is important that these odors are detected swiftly, and the required actions are taken. Odor detection services are designed for identifying different sources of odors. We consider how odor detection services work in this article. 

A thorough inspection is necessary for the identification of the source of unusual odors. A thorough inspection is important for both professional and DIY odor detection. Possible sources of the odors are identified and the list checked. 

Experts are well trained on the different sources of odor and versed in the methods of identifying the odors across different locations. Simple tests could also be applied to identify the odor sources. A smell patch test is a common test for detecting the sources of odors. 

Odor detection services are usually paired with odor elimination services. After the source of the odor is identified, the most efficient elimination method is applied. 

Why odor detection services are important 

Bad odors can make an area uninhabitable. It is important that odors are not just masked with air fresheners but are detected and eliminated. Unpleasant odors can trigger gastrointestinal problems and problems in the upper respiratory tract. The unpleasantness of the odor may also just be the least of the worries, especially if it doesn't trigger upper respiratory tract or gastrointestinal problems.

Unusual odors could make mean that an area is unsafe. Odors that make an area unsafe include those from water damage. Water damage encourages the development of mold and mildew. The mold and mildew could trigger allergies. Persons with asthma are particularly at risk of allergic reactions in properties with water damage. 

Gas leakage, which makes a property particularly unsafe, can cause unsafe odors. If the leakage is not identified, extensive damage could result.

Sources of odors 

The sources of unusual odors are diverse. Here are a few possible sources of odors in residential, commercial, and industrial properties. 

Biological material

Biological materials produce unpleasant odors. Odors from biological materials can come from pets or pests. Pests can infest a property and produce feces and urine that produce unpleasant odors. Infesting critters could also die and the decaying carcass will produce horrible odors. 

Hazardous agents from biological materials can spread diseases. Biological materials that produce odors should be identified and removed. 

Water and mold

Water encourages the growth of mold. Mold growth in an area has a musty odor. Mold growth occurs when there is a source of water because mold simply requires cellulose, which is available in drywalls and water. 

Mold growth is associated with structural damage. Mold growth also poses a significant health risk. 


The odor of fire and cigarette smoke could linger for a long period after the initial exposure. The smell makes an area unsafe. Second-hand cigarette smoke is a predisposing factor for chronic diseases. Professionals can identify and eliminate smoke odors and make an area hazard-free. 


Sewer odors could come from bathrooms and kitchens, especially those that have not been in use for a while. This odor arises because of the lack of a water barrier between the sewer and the bathroom or kitchen. 

Gas leak 

A gas leak could be the reason behind the change in odors. It is important that the source of gas leaks is swiftly identified and the issue fixed to prevent explosions. 

Professional odor elimination methods

After experts identify sources of odors, they apply established methods for elimination. Here are some of the professional odor elimination methods.

High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration

HEPA filtration purifies air by eliminating odorous particles. This method makes a property safe from different hazardous materials. 


Ozone eliminates odors by modifying the structure of the odorous material. Ozone has three oxygen atoms, with the third atom available for chemical reactions. The third oxygen binds to the odorous material and neutralizes it. 

Thermal fogging

This method is specifically suited for the elimination of smoke particles. This method involves the use of fine particles to neutralize odorous materials.

Odor detection helps to eliminate hazards and reduce the likelihood of accidents. Unusual odors should be detected and eliminated. Odor detection and elimination services are readily available and offered by licensed professionals and organizations. 

It is always important to get to the root of any unusual odor because the issue could be much bigger than assumed. Unusual odors should be identified and eliminated and not masked.
