Professional, Humane Decontamination and Odor Removal

Decontamination and Odor Removal

After a nuisance animal has lived in your home, there are some important steps in the wildlife removal process to be aware of. Once removal has occurred, a couple of additional steps are vital to the process. Once exclusion and damage repair services have been done by a professional, decontamination and odor removal should be the next step in the process. Decontamination is important because it will sanitize your home, ridding it of any of the viral and bacterial infections left by pests. The odor removal service is important because, as you guessed, it will get rid of foul odors. Continue reading to find out more about these two very important steps in the wildlife removal process and how they can benefit you.


While the sense of relief of nuisance animals being gone is great, there should be one more concern you have, and this deals with the illness these critters leave behind. Even if most of the messes caused by these animals are cleaned up, the illness can remain. This is particularly the case wherever the animal’s droppings were. All of the living viruses and bacteria can be spread easily to you, your family, and your pets. One scary part of this is that even if a mess is cleaned up, people can unknowingly be contracting the disease. This is where an actual decontamination process is vital to the long-term health of you and your family.

Nuisance animals are known to carry some very harmful diseases that can potentially be fatal to humans and their pets. Among the worst are raccoon roundworm, hantavirus, rat-bite fever, rabies, salmonella, histoplasmosis, and tularemia. Each of these diseases can live in a home for months after the animals are gone. Most of these diseases are transmitted through saliva, urine, or fecal matter, but can remain alive on surfaces long after these substances have been dried up or removed. To combat this, decontaminating your home will kill every bacteria and virus the nuisance animal has spread. Sanitizing sprays and foams are used that effectively contact every surface, leaving you with a completely sanitized home. This service is highly effective and can potentially save your or a family member’s life, making it a great investment.

Odor Removal

Like most animals, pest animals have a way of creating awful odors that can last for months or even years at a time. These foul odors take their shape in many different forms, such as their various scent gland smells, the foods or dead animals they eat, their droppings and urine, or the odor of their fur and body. Many people are shocked to experience that even when the animal is removed, this odor can stay for a long time. This is why wildlife removal companies offer odor removal services, as they can improve your quality of life and your home’s hygiene immediately. One other large benefit of having an odor removal service performed rests in the biology of animals. Often, many nuisance animals come into homes because they can smell those other nuisance animals or be living there. Having this service performed can prevent that attraction as well. Oftentimes, decontamination and odor removal are performed in tandem, making the process very quick and time-efficient.
