No stone should be left unturned when removing pests.
To ensure a truly pest-free and pest-proof home, hire a professional who will treat your home beyond the point of removal, also repairing damage and preventing future infestations.
We are proud to share the success of a treatment we completed for a client who called us after another exterminator did not fully get the job done, allowing water damage to occur from a rat nest that soaked an area of the ceiling. In addition to removal, we decontaminated the attic, replaced the insulation, and sealed off all possibilities of rodent re-entry.
The work of the other previous exterminator did not deliver an ultimate solution because simply killing rodents is not enough to prevent them from coming back. Rodent removal should be followed by decontamination and insulation replacement in order to restore the health and safety of your home.
Water damage in homes or buildings are enticing to rodents who love dark and humid crawl spaces, especially in colder areas and months. The presence of moisture allows walls, floors, and ceilings to be more easily penetrable.
Once they are inside, rodents have no respect for your home. Rodents almost always leave excrement in insulation and on surfaces, contaminating the air that circulates your home. They’ll claim the space they take up, emitting feces and urine to mark their territory. The odor from their droppings provides guidance for them to navigate back to the space using their sense of smell..
Rodent contamination is hazardous and dangerous. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention say that “certain diseases can spread from rodents to people through direct contact with infected rodents (for example, breathing in contaminated air, touching contaminated materials and then touching eyes, nose, or mouth, being bitten or scratched by an infected rodent, or eating food contaminated from an infected rodent).” Leptospirosis and hantavirus are infectious diseases that can spread from their bacteria. Their bodily fluids (blood, oil, feces, saliva, and urine) contain bacteria which can develop into mold and mildew, which can aggravate existing allergies and respiratory issues.
Therefore, rodents and their traces must be removed to prevent them from finding their way back by following their territorial markings. Rodent decontamination also ensures that you, your family, and occupants of the house or building do not come into contact or exposure to the bacteria and illnesses that rodents carry.
The damage that rodents cause to attic insulation has a directly negative impact on the efficacy of the insulation itself, which causes you to suffer from a lower degree of warmth and higher energy costs.
After removing the rodents and the rodent nest, we removed the infected insulation and replaced it with brand new pest control insulation. We sealed off all entries and openings to ensure that no new rodents would enter.
