Why do I need professionals to perform Attic Cleaning?

For starters, service professionals will do an assessment of your attic. Attic cleaning is a customized service and your treatment will be specific to the needs of your space. Rodent waste is known to damage wood and drywall, and increase mold growth. Attic cleaning is not simply a surface job! It is best left to service professionals with the skills and tools.

Debris, rodent droppings, dead rodent carcasses, and insulation damage that result from an infestation, are a recipe for a very dangerous mess. You should not attempt to sanitize the space yourself. Rodent droppings carry diseases that humans can catch, and these diseases are not only transmitted through touching rodent feces- they can be airborne as well. Airborne dust from dried droppings can be a contributor to respiratory diseases, including hantavirus. Don’t risk your health by exposing yourself to these dangers. Professionals have the proper protective suits and gear to combat these hazards safely.

What does Attic Cleaning Involve?

  1. The first step in attic cleaning is clearing out debris. This includes: any unwanted storage items, garbage, dust and dirt, and all rodent waste.
  2. Next, professionals will remove any materials damaged or contaminated by rodent urine, feces, and tunneling. This includes: insulation, vapor barrier, and old foundation forms.
  3. When debris and hazardous materials have been removed, it’s time to sanitize with professional-grade disinfectant!
  4. Rodent infestation leaves a terrible odor! The fourth step is to completely deodorize the space. This is an important step because it will make your home less attractive to other rodents and can reduce risk for re-entry.
  5. Finally, it’s time to replace the old with new, clean materials!
