“What’s that smell?”

It’s a sad fact that animal infestations in human houses often end with the said animal dying inside the walls of their ill-gotten living area. Maybe the creature died of natural causes while holed up in the crawlspace. Maybe the squatter became stuck or injured while navigating the house’s inner layers and perished as a result. Or maybe baby critters, separated from their mother for one reason or another, starved to death in the attic.

Regardless of the cause, a decaying animal on your property can smell horrible, causes a disgusting mess, and possibly attract other animals to your home. But locating the body, disposing of it, and cleaning up the affected area correctly and safely can be tricky. When you’ve got a dead-animal-inside-the-wall situation on your hands, you probably need help from an expert—and you need it fast.

No Trespassing
The best way to avoid having to deal with dead animals in your walls is to prevent animals from getting into your home in the first place. For our tried-and-true tips on doing so, please see the “Be Proactive” section on our wildlife removal page.

…and What We Do
Chimney and Wildlife uses a multi-step process to root out pest animals that have taken refuge—or passed away—in human homes:

  • Pre-treatment. The pests are removed from your property in a safe, humane manner. We use only the most cutting-edge techniques and technology in the industry, allowing us to be speedy and efficient while remaining eco-friendly.
  • Seal up the site of the breach. We discourage animals from returning to your domicile after we evict them by blocking up any easy-access or weak points in the building’s structure.
  • Set traps. Humane traps catch any pests who try to take advantage of your newly vacated chimney, attic, or walls.
  • Sanitation and Deodorization. Our professionals will remove unpleasant smells that linger after your unwelcome guests leave. We’ll also clean up any droppings they left behind, reducing your risk of illness from exposure to dander or fecal matter. Tough jobs may require removal and re-installation of attic insulation—which we can take care of in-house.

We offer tailor-made action plans for each client’s unique situation. Not only does Chimney and Wildlife want to help you with your current predicament, we also want to make sure you don’t find yourself in the same situation a few months down the road.
