It’s a fate we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemies. Mice, squirrels, and other small rodents finding their way into your home can wreak havoc on your house, as well as your peace of mind. One of the ways these issues can magnify is when these animals happen to die inside the walls and attic spaces of your home. Most of the time, the death of this small animal will go unnoticed. The animal will die in an area with enough ventilation to prevent the smell from amassing in living spaces. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. When they perish in unventilated or exceedingly hot areas, a single small mouse can produce a stench that will drive even the stiffest nosed of us out of the space. 

The best way to eliminate dead smells is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Ensuring you home is well sealed goes a long way. Making sure not to leave appetizing bits of food and debris out and unsealed also helps. If you find yourself in a situation where it is too late for prevention, removing the dead smell in your home is somewhat self-explanatory. You have to get rid of it. If you cannot access the space where the smell is coming from, you have the choice to wait out the smell or tear into your home in an effort to remove the decaying material.
