A pest infestation means not only disturbing noises and damage, but also danger and diseases. Wild animals can leave behind large amounts of droppings, urine, hair, debris, nesting materials, and so on. These remnants can pose health threats to you and your family, cause a really bad odor, and attract other pests such as cockroaches or insects.
If you have animals residing in your attic, you are quite likely to deal with raccoons, squirrels, rats, mice, or bats. As soon as you spot the pest presence in your home, you should take immediate action. Animal droppings and urine can cause strong, hazardous odors that can be very hard to get rid of. Wild animals always leave large amounts of waste behind, which is not only not pleasant to look at or smell, but also can cause very serious health problems. Not to mentioned other damage that these animals can do to your property – anything from chewing on wires and furniture to bringing debris from outside and creating nests that are a perfect environment for insects.
Many pests spread diseases that can be caught by humans even when we don’t have direct contact with the animal. Some of the feces can transmit diseases as when they dry and become dust, they turn into airborne spores that can be inhaled. This can lead to contracting Salmonella or Leptospirosis, and many other diseases. Some droppings can also contain roundworm eggs which can infect people. Many of the diseases carried by pests can be very serious, and even fatal especially when not treated quickly. Hence why cleaning your attic after dealing with a pest infestation is crucial.
This is not your usual clean-your-house-time. When sanitizing and cleaning after the presence of wild animals, you need to be very careful and make sure to have the right gear, such as face mask, gloves, long sleeves, and strong chemicals. It might be a good decision to use professional help provided by wildlife services to make sure that your attic is safely decontaminated.
