Attic Cleaning Services

At HomeShield Pest Control, we work with homeowners to ensure their homes are bug, rat, and rodent free. We understand the inherent weaknesses that allow pests – especially rodents – into your home. We also work with you to clean up the mess left by a previous (or ongoing) infestation.

Rodent Exclusion & Attic Cleanups

Most attic cleanups are required to decontaminate a home after a rodent or rat infestation. If you are currently dealing with a rodent infestation, you will need to remove rodent access to your attic through what’s known as a rodent exclusion (also called rodent proofing). To learn more about rodent exclusion services, click on the rodent exclusion link below or call us to speak with a technician that can walk you through the process.

Attic Cleaning – Ensure rodents never return

If you have already performed rodent exclusion and “rodent proofed” your home, then you likely have only one more step required to ensure rodents never come back (though ongoing monitoring is always a good idea as well). This step is commonly referred to as an “attic cleanup” or “attic cleaning”. It includes decontaminating your attic – removing all traces of rodent feces, urine, and other materials.

Why is this important?

Other than cleaning up the space and eliminating potential health risks and hazards, eliminating the odors left behind be a rat or rodent infestation can limit how attractive your home is to future rodents.

If you haven’t studied rodents, particularly rats, you may not realize that their brains are hardwired to recognize and be attracted to the scent created by feces and urine. Their sense of smell is so strong that they can actually understand the dimensions of your attic and even mark entries and exits with their urine. If rodent droppings and residues are not fully removed, new rodents, with their intensely acute olfactory abilities, could smell the odors left behind and try to create new openings into your home.

A good attic cleanup will remove all signs of rodent feces, urine, blood, hair, and oils, as well as the odors they leave behind, turning off the homing beacon those smells can create.

Infested Insulation Removal and Replacement

As part of any attic cleanup, it is very common to inspect, remove, and replace sections of insulation. Rats often find their way into insulation, leaving behind droppings and other materials that can cause health issues or act as beacons to draw in new rodents.

As part of the insulation removal and replacement process, our technicians ensure no additional areas in your home are contaminated. The safety of your family as well as our technicians is always a priority. We work with the best decontamination materials to remove all traces of rodents and ensure your home is free of potential health hazards.
