Bad Odor in my Home or Place of Business

Bad odor in my home or place of business
It is a common occurrence that animals die inside walls, in attics, or in other crawl spaces.  One may confuse the smell with mold or mildew at the beginning, but the intensity of the smell of a decaying animal becomes overpowering and will last a long time.  It is common for an owner to smell the odor when he/she enters from the exterior or from a different room, since one’s sense of smell will adjust to odors the longer the exposure to it.  Forsyth Wildlife estimates the average smell will last from 4 weeks to 6 months if the animal carcass is not removed.  It is worth mentioning that in some cases the smell will remain for months or years.  The good news is that when a professional is hired to remove the carcass, the smell disappears in less than 24 hours providing it is the only dead animal.  Removal and disinfection are two common practices of Forsyth Wildlife.  Please call our company as soon as possible so you don’t have to tolerate foul odors for a long period of time.
