It’s that time of the year. The faint scratching that you heard in the walls have gone quiet and instead have been replaced with the rather pungent odor of decomposing rodents – mice or rats.
We know from experience. You can smell it the minute you walk into a room or open a closet where the smell is coming from. The odor from a dead, decomposing mouse or other small rodent is enough to drive you out of the house. Before you take a hammer to the wall or search through the vents, there is an easier solution to reducing and even eliminating the strong odor from a dead mouse behind the wall or in a vent. Dead mice and rats hidden behind walls, cabinets, vents and closets are among our top odor inquiries. The good news is that we have helped many readers just like you.
There is a way to SAFELY eliminate the odor with natures best odor absorbing material – Activated Charcoal. No chemicals or irritating fragrances that just mask the odor. There are a number of products that claim to reduce the odor, but the best answer is to actually absorb the odor with carbon or charcoal. Getting a spray bottle of odor reducer is not going to help when you can’t get to the dead rodent. Placing activated charcoal odor eliminators in the area where the smell is the worst is your best choice. Our popular FRIDGE IT Cube activated charcoal odor absorber is extremely effective in tackling the strong odor from a dead mouse.
Our customers often ask – “But, I thought that FRIDGE IT was for refrigerator, freezers and trash odors?” That is certainly some of the uses for FRIDGE IT. However, the special ventilated activated charcoal fliter that we use for FRIDGE IT is amazing in effectively absorbing and neutralizing a broad range of odors and has the absorption capacity to handle even the toughest of odors including dead mouse odor. FRIDGE IT contains a powerful micro carbon filter that absorbs and neutralizes odors as they pass though millions of micro-pockets and pores in the activated charcoal. The amazing property of activated charcoal is the enormous microscopic surface area that odors (gases) actually “adsorb” to, adhering to the surface of the activated charcoal. Just placing a few of these FRIDGE IT filters in the area that you feel the dead mouse is likely located will help tremendously in absorbing the smell that is lingering in the air. For best results, place these odor absorbers near the baseboards and in the general area near the wall. Depending upon the size of ther room and difficulty of the odor, we typically recommend 3-6 odor absorbing filters placed nearby.
If you have problems with mice in your home, we recommend first trying to trap the mice in the open with a mouse trap or other device so that it doesn’t just end up eating the poison bate and then die behind the wall. However, despite best efforts to trap them, the reality is they often end of simply dead behind a wall and the smell is pretty darn bad. So, again, before taking a hammer to the wall, discover the amazing power of activated charcoal for absorbing odors. Not just any charcoal, but the ventilated activated charcoal of FRIDGE IT.
