Got a Really Bad Smell in Your Roof?

Share

Summer and flies go together in Brisbane, but if you suddenly get swarms of black flies inside your home, accompanied by a vague, horrible smell that gets worse as the day heats up, you may have something dead in your roof or walls.
Homes provide shelter to more than just humans. Possums, snakes, rats, mice and birds can all take up residence in a home. But when nature takes its course, and an animal or bird dies inside your home through illness, injury or simply old age, then this can be extremely unpleasant for the human residents.
Call us if your home has developed that unmistakeable smell. We will come out and try to locate and get rid of the dead animal for you, then deodorise the location to remove the smell.

Possum Living In Whirly Bird

While we can generally locate most dead animals in the ceiling space of homes, some manage to get into wall cavities or inaccessible places in the roof. Then the only solution is to cut an access point into the wall. If this is the case, we will of course discuss these costs with you before taking any action.
Removing the animal is only part of the story. You then need to make sure that the “No Vacancies” sign is put up to stop other animals from taking up residence. If the problem was caused by a dead possum, we will also provide a quote for more permanent pest proofing so you can enjoy your summers free of unpleasant smells.
