Attic cleaning and decontamination is a crucial step in ensuring that your home remains rat and rodent free. Attics are often isolated areas which are commonly out of reach of cats and dogs and are often seldom used by homeowners, making them the perfect place for rats and mice to hide. Rats and mice don’t have control of their bladder, so urine and feces will commonly contaminate attics, often without the homeowners even knowing. This can not only lead to mold and mildew issues, but animal waste material can also spread harmful bacteria and parasites.
Once the rodent’s pheromone scent has grazed the area, they will easily attract more rodents to your home. Rat and mouse urine and feces also produce an awful odor that lingers in your home until the infested area is thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated. That’s why it is important to call in the professionals as the first sign of rodent contamination. Our attic cleaning and restoration services can help remove all traces of these pests to help ensure they don’t return.

Rodent proofing your attic
Our professionals will inspect your attic to see if there is damage done by the rodents. We will look for evidence of chewing on the wood. We will look for feces of rats or mice. We are also going to check for holes or other areas that rodents could be getting in. Once the inspection is complete we will put up barriers to stop them from entering again. These barriers may consist of metal mesh to block holes. We may also use steel wool to plug the holes. The other option we have is a very hard foam. If you have vents in your attic we may also place a metal mesh over them to prevent rodents from entering through the vents. It is not likely a rodent will chew through metal or the hardened foam. This process is much safer and cleaner than setting traps.
