Decontamination is the process of removing all lingering health risks that come from a rodent infestation. After a rodent infestation, your home is contaminated in every sense of the word. Rodents themselves can carry disease and other pests like fleas and ticks. In addition to this, they can also leave traces of feces, urine, hair, oil, and even blood. Allowing these substances to stay in your home can lead to serious health risks for you and your family. Among these risks are diseases such as the hantavirus, which is a “life-threatening viral infection” that is spread almost exclusively by rodents to humans.
When we inspect an attic or crawlspace, we are not only checking the health of your insulation but the health of the ducts, we check for rodents evidence/damage, right ventilation and moisture.
