Three Steps for Restoring an Attic
Buckeye Wildlife Solutions provides complete attic remediation/restoration services to Columbus homeowners. Firstly, we will eradicate any animals residing in your attic. What’s the point of cleaning up after an animal that hasn’t left? After our specialists humanely remove your pests, they will begin the attic cleanup process. Below are the three main steps we use to properly execute every attic restoration job:
1. Remove All Materials & Biomass including animal droppings and contaminated insulation.
2. Sanitize the Attic to remove wildlife scent, annoying odors, and lingering bacteria.
3. Install New Insulation to state code in order to keep your attic safe and comfortable.
During Inspection we will account for all damage before recommending either a spot cleaning service or full attic restoration. This decision depends on the prevalence droppings and various damage to the attic.
When animal waste builds up or is scattered about your attic, we recommend a full restoration service. Full attic restoration involves remediation of all exposed material from the area, including all insulation. Once all the potentially hazardous material is removed from the attic, we will apply an aerosol disinfectant solution throughout the attic space. This helps remove all foul odors caused by urine & fecal matter.
If droppings are confined to a small area, we suggest a spot cleaning service. This is generally recommended following brief stints with nuisance animals where waste has not accumulated enough to require full restoration. Spot cleaning includes removing animal waste as well as all insulation surrounding the waste. This usually makes for a quick job, but don’t delay – animal issues get worse with time.
Diseases Carried in Animal Waste
Disease is a major concern for anyone with a wildlife problem. Although contracting disease from animal droppings isn’t likely, you should not treat the situation lightly. Our specialists are trained to handle all types of hazardous situations. We will ensure that no further issues arise in the presence of animal waste. Below, you can find out more about the dangers of specific animals’ waste.
Disease From Bat & Bird Droppings
Histoplasmosis is the main disease humans contract from bat & bird guano. It affects the respiratory system (breathing) which has obvious implications. Symptoms usually resemble the common cold, but can be much worse depending on your age and overall health.
If you have bat or bird droppings in your attic, please do not try to clean them up on your own. Avoid even entering the area if possible, as most diseases carried by these animals are airborne. You are much more likely to breathe in bacteria if you are inside or near the infected area.
Disease From Raccoon Droppings
Raccoons are known to carry the Raccoon Round Worm parasite. Round worm eggs pass the disease from raccoons to other animals, humans included. A raccoon with round worms hosts the parasite inside of its digestive tract. All round worms inside the infected raccoon will lay eggs. The number of eggs each roundworm can lay is enormous – enough to pose a real threat to any humans they come in contact with. The eggs mix with digested material in the raccoons stomach, eventually taking up residence in the raccoon’s droppings.
The Dangers Of Round Worm Eggs
Round worm eggs are very durable. They can absorb through human skin, making them extremely dangerous to anyone in their presence. Round worm eggs do not die off. In fact, they can live in raccoon droppings for up to 10 years. If you have raccoon droppings in your attic, do not attempt to remove them by yourself. Proper safety equipment is a necessity for cleaning up raccoon droppings. Allow us to help – call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at 844.544.PEST and speak to a licensed professional!
