Our crawl space cleaning team follows the detailed report provided by your rodent inspector to restore any areas that have been damaged by rodents.
Every area will be restored to its original condition and in many cases, better than its original condition. Damaged insulation will be removed in the infested areas along with damaged vapor barrier, old foundation forms, garbage, and rodent waste. New materials will replace all damaged materials.
After the removal, our restoration team will sanitize the infested areas. The areas are then deodorized to minimize odor, making your home less attractive to other rodents. This reduces, but does not eliminate, the risk of re-entry.
Attic and Crawl Space Cleaning – Damaged Insulation Removal
When rodents and wildlife infest a crawlspace, they nest in the insulation that is tucked between the floor joists under the floor. As a result, crawlspace insulation becomes damaged from their droppings, urine, and tunneling. The same is true for attic insulation when a rat or mouse family moves in to the insulation between the ceiling joists. In this case, ceiling insulation becomes soiled and dangerous from the rodents' dried urine, feces and saliva. Also, rats, mice and squirrels can cause significant damage by chewing on various features of the home, like the electrical wiring.
When rodents move in, the soiled insulation becomes compressed and shredded, losing its ability to hold heat. Damaged insulation also falls to the ground leaving your floor exposed to cold air. Replacing the compressed and damaged insulation will improve your home's energy efficiency, saving you money in the long run instead of having your home's heat escape through the poorly-insulated areas.
Attic & Crawl space Clean up
In addition to ruining the insulation in your crawl space and attic, rats and mice leave disease pathogens in these areas. This is why it is imperative to first remove the infected insulation and debris, and secondly sanitize and disinfect the area. The airborne dust from dried droppings can be a factor in many respiratory diseases, including Hantavirus. Using the proper protective gear, we will remove all contaminated insulation, debris, and vapor barrier. All rodent droppings will be swept off of pier pads and the entire crawlspace or attic will be sanitized with a disinfectant. After all contaminated materials are removed and everything has been sanitized, disinfected, and deodorized, the crawlspace and attic is ready for new insulation.
