Where The Smell Comes From
Wildlife such as mice and squirrels often enter the home through the attic where they wander around and get caught off guard by
These voids allow the animal to fall behind the walls where they eventually die.
Consequently, dead animals in the house are typically found in the walls.
Within one day, the dead animal smell from a small mouse can make the odor in your home unbearable.
Nothing can put your family in a hotel faster than the odor of a dead animal that has died in the walls.
"Resident" skunks can also create an odor around and inside your home.
Sometimes skunks have simply sprayed around the exterior of the house, but they can also
get under your home and into your air conditioning duct work, causing damage and creating a serious odor issue.
Skunks hanging around
the house can often lead to
smells inside the home.
Odor Removal Services
If a skunk has sprayed around your home or an animal has died in your attic, walls,
ceiling, duct work or under the house, we can help. The Skunk Whisperer®, Inc. has the right
equipment and experience to locate the cause of your skunk odor or dead animal smell
and eliminate it with little, if any, destruction to your home.
We remove live animals from walls too.
If you have a live animal such as a nuisance squirrel, raccoon or
bird trapped in the wall, we know how to remove them alive utilizing
humane methods, also with small high-tech cameras and minimal destruction.
Live animals stuck in an interior wall by the floor is not something that
you should wait around to call us about on Monday - tick, tock -
squirrels and birds typically die of dehydration or cardiac arrest
within 48 hours, so if you personally are not positive which stud
bay the dying animal is in, we will have to wait until it starts to
smell or maggots are crawling out in order to remove it with minimal damage.
Live animals stuck in a wall are an emergency - get a piece of tape and place
it on the wall exactly where you hear it and then call us... Murphy's law works,
because if the animal is not moving around when we get to your building and
there is no tape to indicate where we need to cut the animal out, more cutting may be needed.

coming from inside a home.
Once the animal is removed, we utilize effective odor removal methods that include specialized machines,
atomizers that work at the enzyme level, and products that remove the smell naturally and/or organically.
We do not simply "hide" the odor with perfumes -
our mission is to remove the smell and eliminate it for good.
For stubborn dead animal, bat urine and skunk spray smell removal,
we can also utilize ozone machines if needed. Scent remediation is often
covered by insurance because it is considered damage. We can help you better
understand your insurance company's mandates and work with them to help you through these troubles.
If you have a wild animal in your wall, dead or alive, do not delay -
call now - it typically will only get worse. The smell will not likely go away,
but rather worsen over time.
The mouse in the above photo was in the client's wall for over a year.
Every time it was humid, the client gagged walking in their front door.
Sometimes maggots cannot or do not get to the body, so, a single mouse
can indeed smell horrible for well over one year.
If a live animal is trapped in your wall it could do damage or die,
costing more money in the long run than it would have cost to simply
have removed it when it was first discovered.
