Attic Decontamination Pleasanton are the experts at picking up after a rat infestation. Clean up the mess left from rats and rodents easily by calling the professionals!
Rodents bring with them a fair amount of contamination, and it is very important that any traces of feces, urine, blood, hair, and oils are completely removed. These materials also must be removed safely. This is because of the risks of dangerous diseases such as hantavirus. Cleaning rat droppings can be very messy and unsafe to do yourself without the proper materials, masks, and training.
The technology employed by using our decontamination products will keep your attic clean and free from any harmful bacteria left from rat infestation. Clean up things like viruses, fungi, mold, and mildew in one go by investing in this service. The process will also provide an effective treatment to eliminate any lingering odors that rodents have left behind. Our primary focus is to make sure that the area is thoroughly cleaned and that your family’s health is not put at risk due to contamination from any of the unpleasant things that pests and rodents can leave behind even after they have been removed.
1. Pre-Job Prep & Walk
Starting your attic cleaning job off right is important. The lead tech will walk with you around your home to document the current conditions. We cover all surfaces along the pathway to the attic entrance in an effort to reduce dust exiting the work area.
2. Insulation Removal
Insulation is removed either by hand or by utilizing a commercial 23-HP Gas Powered Insulation Removal Vacuum attached to a 150 ft vacuum hose.
3. Attic Cleaning
Once the insulation has been removed, or if there was no insulation to begin with, we will vacuum the floor of the entire attic using a 23-HP Commercial Vacuum.
4. Sanitizing & Decon
After the insulation has been removed and the attic has been clean we’ll sanitize the attic by use of a fogger to cover all the surfaces in the attic with a family-friendly sanitizer.
5. Job Site Cleanup
Now that the Attic Insulation Service is complete we’ll cleanup our containment and work area to make it look like we were never there.

Dealing with a contaminated attic space is not fun! And it can be hazardous to clean up. That’s when you call us. Our crews are specially trained to properly assess any attic problems and develop a safe, decontamination plan for each project.
Vermin of all kinds can enter your attic space and do significant damage in the process. The first step is to get rid of wildlife. We highly recommend Critter Detectives – they are wildlife nuisance removal and relocation professionals (See contact information below). If the source of contamination is mold, a mold mitigation professional is recommended.
First, we remove all infested materials including insulation. Materials are carefully handled in order to prevent cross-contamination during the transport and disposal process. We transport the infested and damaged materials from the attic to the dumpsite so you don’t have to.
Next, depending on the type of infestation, we apply the proper disinfectant to surfaces and let it dry. Once dried, we re-insulate the attic space to current standards (often a combination of batt and blown-in fiberglass insulation is required).
HOMEOWNER INSURANCE CLAIMS
Often, infestations and attic decontamination services are covered by homeowners’ insurance. We work with your adjuster and insurance company to ensure maximum insurance coverage and help process your claim.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not molded by mitigation professionals. If we discover mold, we will refer you to a trustworthy mold professional. See the contact information below. Once mold mitigation is completed, we can then proceed with any re-insulation tasks.

Cold air is lost before it effectively cools the indoor space. This makes your HVAC system work harder, using more energy and driving your utility bills up.
