Rodent Cleanup and Proofing In Novato specializes in the removal and disinfection of areas affected by pigeons, rats, mice, cockroaches and other rodents and/or insects that unfortunately often take residence in our homes and businesses. We are one of the only companies in the nation offering rat, mouse, pigeon and other rodent droppings removal with disinfection. There are dozens of diseases that can be found in these droppings (see chart below).
Most of the time the threat is exaggerated, but in certain cases, there is a real danger through direct contact or simply by breathing the air in these contaminated environments. Rodent Cleanup and Proofing In Novato can quickly and effectively remove all droppings and any dead rodents, as well as apply the appropriate disinfectant to the involved areas. Unfortunately, even when rodents are exterminated, their scent remains which attracts other rodents to take their place. These areas must be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and sealed to prevent an ongoing infestation. From attics to basements and garages, there are no areas of a home or business that we can’t completely clean and disinfect. Call for an in home assessment and estimate.

Often times a pigeons nest or roost is the area of biggest concern. Over several years pigeon droppings can accumulate and bacteria as well as parasites can be present. Even if the droppings are dried over long periods of time the danger is still present. Diseases can be contagious through the air or direct contact. Caution should be used when around areas with heavy droppings, especially in a poorly ventilated areas such as attics. The photos to the right show typical pigeon and rat infestations. Signs to look for if you think you have a problem are:
Description: A rodent transmitted viral disease. Arenavirus infections are relatively common in humans in some areas of the world (not the United States) and can cause severe illnesses. The arenaviruses are divided into two groups: the New World or Tacaribe complex and the Old World or LCM/Lassa complex.
Cause: Disease caused by many types of viruses belonging to the Arenaviridae.
Mode of Transmission: Contact with infected rodent urine, droppings and nesting materials. Also by stirring up – or aerosolizing – rodent urine and droppings when cleaning contaminated areas. By consumption of contaminated food or by direct contact of broken skin with rodent excrement. Wild rodents transmit this disease by contaminating food and drink with their feces and urine.
Our Attic Cleaning In Ross process includes having all of the old insulation removed, then we perform a thorough cleaning of the attic. While the insulation is out we will apply hospital grade disinfectant by fogging into the attic and fogging onto the surfaces of the attic. After the attic sanitizing we install brand new insulation. We’re not a typical insulation company; at Attic Cleaning In Ross, we specialize in attic cleaning, attic clean outs, attic sanitizing and attic decontaminations, as well as insulation removal and insulation replacement.
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.
