This can be a terrifying experience. Envision this stench in your backyard or worse in the walls of your home. This issue may be a huge headache, or better yet, vomit inducing, however, it’s necessary to properly deal with this dilemma.
The most important step is to locate the odor. This odor is due to the gases: sulfur dioxide, methane, benzene derivatives, and hydrocarbons that are given off during the decomposition process. The dead creature will give off the disgusting odor until it is completely decomposed or until the body fluids are completely removed, dried out. If you are not completely positive exactly what this odor smells like you can search for other signs aside from the odor. Such as flies. Flies and maggots are generally in or about this parasitic animal. Although the best tool to use is your nose. You need to look everywhere. Search both inside and outside. Look in your attic, basement, crawlspace, closets, garden, and anywhere you believe possible or impossible for a creature to reach. You may be surprised where you might discover it.
After you have found the decaying creature you then need to pour liquid bleach over top of it. Then proceed to get rid of the carcass. To do that put the carcass in a bag, tie the bag tightly so the odor does not escape. For the best results place the bagged carcass into a different bag and also tightly tie it. Once the carcass is removed from the area pour more bleach on the place the carcass was found. This will eliminate the odor left from decomposition. If you are outdoors you’re able to use gasoline to get rid of the odor as well, rather than bleach.
You need to care for the odor as soon as possible. The odor will not get better by itself. The carcass has to be eliminated along with the odor. There are many professional services out there to assist people with this issue. Just look up one in your area.
