How to get rid of dead rat smell naturally

So How to get rid of dead rat smell naturally?


Anyone who has experienced the smell of a dead rat first-hand knows just how bad it is. After discovering an infestation on their property, the only concern of most homeowners is how to get rid of the rodents as quickly as possible; they don’t consider the impact that errant mouse carcasses might have. But one of the simplest and most common methods of getting rid of rats is to put down poisoned bait. After consuming the bait, it takes at least a couple of days for the poison to kill the rodents. During this time, rats can find their way into hard-to-reach corners of a property. If dead rats aren’t found and disposed of quickly, they will soon start to decay and produce a terrible odour.

Getting rid of the dead rat smell can be just as challenging as getting rid of the rodents themselves. One option is to scrub any affected areas with a powerful disinfectant, but not everyone is comfortable using these chemicals in their home, and some people are susceptible to the fumes they give off. Fortunately, there are some more natural methods you can use to flush out the smell and make the air in your home breathable once again.

After disposing of the dead rat, the first thing to do is open as many windows as you can to improve ventilation. You want to maintain a constant circulation of fresh air. If you have any fans in your home, use them to keep the air moving. You can use incense or oil burners to mask the smell until it fades, although this can take a while. Some people have reported that leaving cups of vinegar near the original source of the smell will absorb some of the odour and speed up its clearance. You can also purchase odour removing bags that are designed to absorb bad odours quickly. These bags contain natural ingredients and act like magnets for bad smells.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
