When rodents infest an attic, they can nest in the insulation that is tucked between the floor and ceiling joists. As a result, attic insulation becomes damaged from rodent droppings, urine, saliva, and tunneling. In addition to ruining the insulation in your attic, rats and mice leave disease pathogens in these areas, as well as fleas, ticks, and lice. The airborne dust from dried droppings can be a factor in many respiratory diseases, including Hantavirus. This is why it is imperative to first remove the infected insulation and debris, and secondly sanitize and disinfect the area.
Our attic clean up services include:
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.
