Overview Of Attic Decontamination

a dirty attic space

Attic decontamination represents an extensive process that eliminates all the health risks produced by a wildlife infestation. It does not matter if the invasion is just a squirrel or a family of raccoons. Like ticks and fleas, wildlife can carry potentially life-threatening diseases in hair, blood, feces, urine, and body oil. The diseases include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome which people contract by inhaling the dust formed by the creation of wild animal nests and fecal matter.

Here is the list of other diseases wild animals can carry into Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas homes:

  • Plague
  • Tularemia
  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Salmonella
  • South American Arenavirus

A lot of fancy names describe diseases that cause debilitating side effects, including diarrhea, high fever, and stomach cramps. The symptoms last for weeks and in some cases require emergency medical care to prevent loss of life.

When wild animals invade your Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX and surrounding areas home, you need to hire a home-services contractor that successfully completes the three steps required for efficient critter control.

Destructive Wildlife In Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX & Surrounding Areas

When wildlife invades your home, the critters chew up soft materials like clothing and newspapers to build nests. When the soft stuff runs out, mice, rats, and squirrels turn to hard objects to complete their home construction projects. With teeth and claws, small animals can tear through wall insulation and wooden support beams. Everything a wild animal touches in the attic becomes contaminated, which means we have to remove entire sections of the attic to complete the attic decontamination process.

The Attic Decontamination Process

Our attic decontamination services involve a thorough cleaning of the attic to eliminate any sign of fecal matter, as well as the nest's wild animals, build to provide warmth and security for the entire family. 911 Wildlife vacuums attic floors to remove hair and solid animal droppings, before power washing attic floors, walls, and ceilings using a powerful disinfectant that eliminates harmful pathogens. We replace wall insulation, as well as apply an anti-odor agent that makes the presence of wild animals in your attic a distant memory.

The comprehensive attic decontamination process begins with a meticulous inspection of your attic to discover where squirrels and other types of wild animals live. We then start attic decontamination by getting rid of fecal matter.

Efficiently Going Green To Restore Your Attic

The disinfectants we use for sprays and apply to damp cloths and sponges are powerful enough to decontaminate an attic, but mild enough to use in a home where pets and children live. Our dedication to going green means the disinfectants quickly remove germs, mold, fungus, mildew, and bacteria, without permanently destroying other components of the natural environment. Our attic decontamination process takes anywhere from a couple of days to a little more than a week to complete.

How Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, TX & Surrounding Areas Homeowners Should Prepare For Attic Decontamination

911 Wildlife treats attic decontamination as a highly collaborative process between homeowners in cities like Carrollton and Rowlett and our team of home services specialists. You can help make the attic decontamination process go smoothly by implementing a few preparation tips.

Remove Pets And Children

911 Wildlife uses environmentally friendly disinfectants and other attic decontamination materials, but we recommend keeping your home pet and child-free for the few hours we need to apply the spray that eliminates bacteria. Pets and young children possess immune systems that cannot handle some types of cleaning agents. Have a friend or family member watch pets and children for a few hours to prevent a commercial disinfectant from causing harm.

Ventilate Your Home

We encourage our clients to open the windows to usher in the fresh air, especially in the attic and rooms located upstairs. Ventilating your Houston, TX home not only circulates air to reduce foul wild animal odors, but it also thins out the scent left behind by decontamination agents. On classic sweltering central Texas summer days, we suggest running at least one fan in the attic to circulate air.

Remove Clutter

If you are like most homeowners, the attic and basement represent the most cluttered areas of your house. Before we begin the attic decontamination process, we ask our clients to remove clutter from the attic to give us more room to inspect, clean, and ventilate. Relocate things like old newspapers and magazines, as well as the furniture you store in the attic for future use in the living room or as an item you plan to offer at a garage sale.

Make Sure You Are Home

When we decontaminate attics, our team of accomplished home services contractors might need access to areas of your home that require your presence. We might have to enter a bedroom to run a disinfectant container snake through a small wall opening or access the basement to turn off the power to your home. Instead of leaving a voicemail for you at work or texting you during a day of running errands, we prefer to communicate with you in real-time by having you nearby.

For more than 35 years, 911 Wildlife has led the way in communities such as Allen, Flower Mound, Grapevine, and Plano, Texas by offering a comprehensive list of critter control services. We humanely remove and transport the critters back into the wild. After clearing your home of wild animals, we help implement steps that prevent a future infestation. Where we differ from our competitors is that we complete phase three of every critter control project. Our team of GAF certified contractors decontaminates your attic to prevent potentially dangerous bacteria from harming your family. Attic decontamination also eliminates the foul odors left behind by rats, squirrels, and mice.
