Dealing with That Dead Rodent Smell

Dealing with rodents can be tricky because you have to get rid of the infestation as well as the smell that it leaves behind. The lingering smell will remind you of the problem and the stress it caused you, so you’ll want to completely eradicate it. Keep reading if you want to learn how to deal with that dead rodent smell.

Solving the Problem

If you have a lot of rodents in the house, you have a higher chance of finding a dead one. While this might seem like it’s moving the problem in the right direction, you won’t always find the dead rodents quickly. Dead rats and mice can be just as problematic as live ones, so make sure you follow an effective pest control plan. Call your exterminator to have the rodents not only killed but removed, so you don’t have to deal with the smell.

Cleaning the House

Once you’ve contacted your pest control professionals and gotten rid of your rodents, you’ll still need to clean, disinfect, and decontaminate your space. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of cleaning up your house on a regular basis, and this makes it a lot simpler to identify and deal with pest control issues as well as minor spills. It’s usually easier to get foul odors out of a hardwood or tile floor than a carpet, so you should put some extra work into cleaning if you’ve had both a rodent infestation and carpeted floors.

Keeping Pests Out

Rodents do not live very long in the wild, so if an infestation goes on long enough, you’ll have some dead rodents in your space. Once you get rid of your pests and clean up the smells, seal your windows and doors so more rodents can’t sneak in.

You don’t have to deal with dead rodents on your own if you contact the pest control specialists at Payne Pest Management. We offer rodent control services in Orange County as well as bed bug extermination and fumigations. Give us a call at (877) 365-5629 to speak with one of our professionals.
