How do you know if an animal has died in your home?

The easiest way to know if an animal has died in your home is to use your nose. Dead animals leave behind a strong odor as their bodies decay in your home. If you follow your nose, you can usually find where the dead animal is to plan for the dead animal's removal. Keep in mind the carcass could be behind a wall or in a vent. The dead animal will continue to smell until it has completely decayed or it has been disposed of. However, keep in mind a decaying body attracts bugs, which can create a new problem in your home 

Dead Animal Smell

Deceased animals leave a horrible scent in your home. Factors that can affect the smell include:

Size of Animal: Large animals produce more odor because they have more flesh. Small rodents such as mice and rats produce less odor than large animals like raccoons. 

Species of Animalthree mice: Different animals have different types of flesh; therefore, they produce different odors. 

Stage of Decomposition: As an animal starts to decompose, the odor gradually increases. Once the body is dried out and has been eaten by maggots, the odor will decrease. 

Location of Animal: When an animal dies in a low-ventilated area, it takes longer to decompose than when it dies in an area with high-ventilation. 

Time of Day: As the air heats up during the day, it rises, so you may not smell the odor as much as you do in the evening when it is cooler.
