Animals Living in Your Attic
Are you looking for animal waste removal in Southern & Northern California If you have an animal living in your attic, you should be! When animals like bats, raccoons, rats or squirrels have resided in an attic for any length of time, they contaminate the insulation with urine, feces; shed fur, parasites and other contaminants. Unless corrective measures are taken, these disease-causing contaminants will remain in your home’s insulation or vents, creating a health hazard that remains long after the animals are gone. Not only does this create an unhealthy situation, but the odors left behind from animal waste can play a vital role in animal re-infestations in the attic. That’s why a complete animal removal, exclusion and clean-up is not complete without removing contaminated insulation, treating the attic with a biocide and replacing material with clean substitutes If you are local and have an animal waste issue on your hand waste no time in asking about our animal waste removal in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino County, San Jose, San Francisco, Bay area,.
Dangers of Animal Waste
If a colony of bats, flock of birds or a family of squirrels, rats, raccoons or other animals takes up residence in your Los Angeles building, their droppings will accumulate and create a health risk for anyone who enters the area and disturbs the material. Once an animal problem has been discovered in a building, exclusion plans should be made, and the extent of contamination should be determined. When an accumulation of animal manure (feces) is discovered in a building, removing the material is NOT the first step.
The first step of the clean-up process is to seek Green Rat Control animal waste removal in Los Angeles. From there, our technicians will remove the animals themselves. Ultrasonic devices and chemical repellents are ineffective for eliminating wildlife problems. The most effective animal control solution is physically trapping, removing and excluding the animals. This involves following multiple steps to identify and seal active entry and exit points and potential re-entry points. (Because some animals are so small they can squeeze through a gap as small as a ¼”).
The best way to prevent exposure to animal disease is to avoid situations where material that might be contaminated can become airborne and subsequently inhaled. Inhalation exposure to highly contaminated areas may be all that is needed to cause infection and development of Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, rabies, Raccoon Roundworm, plague, histoplasmosis, Eosinophilic Meningitis, Anthrax and other zoonotic diseases. In some cases where bats are roosting in the attic space of a home, the animal feces may contaminate the air handling equipment found in the attic exposing the occupants to potential infection without even entering the attic.

Our truck-mounted vacuum system can handle buildings with large accumulations of bird, bat, rodent or mammal excrement or large amounts of contaminated materials. These high-volume systems can remove tons of contaminated material in a short period. Typically, the only part of the system that enters the home is the hose.
Proper disposal of contaminated material removed during animal waste clean-up is a must. Visible and accessible areas of the interior walls where wildlife has roosted or nested must be thoroughly cleaned, and all droppings removed. Removal of droppings, from structures should be left to experienced professionals familiar with proper removal procedures to prevent animal waste from becoming airborne.
After all contaminated material has been removed an approved disinfectant must be applied to kill any parasites or fungus associated with wildlife. Fleas, lice, mites and can infest bats, birds, rats, raccoons, squirrels and other animals. If the host animals are removed from their nests or roosts, the parasites look for another host and may wander into the living space of human dwellings potentially transmitting diseases to humans.
