Rodents can cause serious damage to a home. Rodents tend to destroy the area they build their nests in. Additionally, all rodents need to gnaw on things to wear down their teeth. In a home, this means that everything from wooden doorframes to attic insulation to electrical wiring could be damaged during a rodent infestation.
The damage done to your home during a rodent infestation, as well as the size of the active rodent infestation in your home, will determine your rodent infestation cleanup cost.
Frayed electrical wiring can put your home at risk of catching fire. Depending on the extent of the damages, you may need to hire a professional to patch or replace damaged wiring in your home. The same goes for your attic insulation. Rodents like to build their nests in attic insulation, which can completely destroy the insulation in your home. If your attic insulation is damaged or contaminated, your insulation will need to be cleaned and decontaminated or, in some cases, removed and completely replaced.
Rodent Infestation Requires More Than Normal Cleaning
Rat problems are much more than a nuisance – rodents carry a wide variety of dangerous, highly contagious diseases including hantavirus, hemorrhagic fever, salmonella, rat bite fever and typhus. In addition to this, rodent droppings, dead rodents, and urine are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. All of this means that regular attic cleaning will not be enough to restore your home to a safe, healthy environment. Hiring a professional cleaning and decontamination team with specialized equipment and successful track record of handling rodent infestation cleanup is the best way to ensure that your come is completely decontaminated.

There are various health issues from contaminated attic insulation. One of the most harmful ways your attic can make you sick is the situation of rodents or wildlife gaining access to your attic. If you have damaged air ducts and your insulation is dirty from rodent or wildlife droppings, your home could be exposed to toxic contamination. Rats, raccoons, bats, or other wildlife living and nesting in your attic can potentially lead to exposure to dangerous airborne bacteria. These dirty dust particles and bacteria cause unexplained health issues, itching from mites or flea bites, aggravated asthma or an increase in allergies. It is also a potential risk to those with lowered immunity, such as small children and the elderly.
