Smell in Wall of Dead Squirrel?

I have a three story home and about three weeks ago I felt something running in the main floor ceiling and now the whole house smells really bad. I can 't stand the smell.

You can request the service of a pest control company to check for a possible dead animal removal. If there is a dead animal in your house, the smell will continue for months or even years depending upon the type and size of the animal.

An addition to my first response; if the smell is from an animal trapped in your walls or ceilings, the longer you wait, the more difficult the removal and costly the repair may be.

As an animal decays, liquids released from the decay process will seep into the wood and other materials of your house. This is why the smell may take a long time to dissipate. As the decaying body material seeps into the house materials, you may need to remove the wall or ceiling area and replace it to completely fix the original problem.
