How to remove dead mice smell

How to remove dead mice smell? 

When mice day and their bodies start to decay, they give off a strong and unpleasant odour. Anyone who has ever dealt with dead mice following an infestation will recognise this smell all too well. If mice die within wall cavities or other places where homeowners are likely to find them, most people will first be alerted to their presence by the foul stench of decay. The smell will also linger for some time after the mouse carcass is disposed of. For households with pets, this can create problems; cats and dogs tend to behave strangely when they think they can smell a rodent.

Getting rid of the smell of dead mice can be difficult if they die somewhere inaccessible. But regardless of where they die, there are things you can do to reduce the odour or make it less noticeable until it clears.

The first thing you will want to do is get your hands on the most potent disinfectant you can. Fully disinfecting the affected area is an essential part of the process. Make sure that the area is well-ventilated before you start disinfecting to avoid the build-up of harmful fumes.

If you can access the area where the dead mouse or mice were, spray it directly and scrub it as well as you can. Carpets, rugs, and other fabrics will hold smells much longer than other surfaces and are more difficult to clean. If you can remove them and wash them at a high temperature, this is the best way of eliminating any lingering smells. 

In cases where the mice die and rot somewhere completely inaccessible, all you can do is wait out the smell. Air fresheners, scented candles, and incense can all help to make the stench less noticeable. Keeping the area well ventilated will also help.

So how to remove dead mice smell? 

There are a few ways that you can remove the smell of a dead mouse. One way is to use baking soda. You can sprinkle iton the area where the mouse died and it will help to absorb the smell. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to clean up the mess and removesome of the dead mouse smell.

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.
