    Why Is It Important to Decontaminate Your Attic Following An Animal Infestation Of Your Dallas, TX Home?

    Any time you have an animal infestation problem in the attic of your Dallas home or business, cleaning and sanitizing the attic is 100% necessary. The truth is, that even after the rodents, or other animals, have been removed from your attic, their urine, feces, nesting sites and pheromones are still lingering and saturated throughout your attic. This can be a pretty serious issue for a few different reasons and will impact more areas than just your attic insulation. 

    For starters, if the attic is not properly decontaminated following an animal infestation, then all of the urine and feces in your attic will begin to breakdown. As the breakdown begins, there is the possibility of harmful bacterial and fungal spores being released into the air. While very rare, there is the possibility of these spores potentially causing health related issues... especially if any of the ductwork was compromised during the animal infestation. The more realistic issues associated with the breakdown of animal excrement and nesting sites are: reduced indoor air quality, allergies and foul odors. So either way, it's always imperative to have one of our Dallas, TX Attic Decontamination Specialists thorough sanitize your attic following any type of animal infestation. 

    Another main concern regarding attic decontamination following an animal infestation is the left over pheromones, scent trails and biological markers that constantly attracts animals back to your home. All animals use pheromones as a method of communication and signaling. For rats, and to a lesser degree squirrels, these pheromones are abundant in their urine and feces and are used to signal other populations that they have a nest in the area. Basically, rats use their excrement as invitation for other rats running by your home. Unless your attic is properly decontaminated, then all of those pheromones and biological markers will continually be drawing other populations towards your home and they will relentlessly try to find their way back into your attic. Properly decontaminating the attic will eliminate those pheromones and reduce the likelihood of that happening.

    Raccoon urine and feces is recognized by the CDC as hazardous to humans. Raccoon excrement has the potential to cause health issues when it begins to breakdown and certain fungal spores become airborne. It is highly recommended to have professionals with protective gear handle cleanup of raccoon excrement.

    Phase 1

    This first phase of Omega Animal Removal’s attic fogging treatment is done using a five-series anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal disinfectant. The purpose of this fogging treatment is to eliminate all of the bacterial, viral, microbial and fungal spores that are released into the air as the feces and urine begin to breakdown. Generally after a rat infestation in your attic, or wildlife infestation in your attic, there will be tears and rips in your HVAC ductwork from where the rats, squirrels and raccoons had been running across it. This phase of our fogging treatment allows us to ensure that any of the negative effects of the excrement breaking down will be neutralized and therefore not seeping into your homes air conditioning system.

    The second phase of our attic fogging treatment is a specifically designed vector treatment to eliminate any and all pheromones left behind by the animals. This phase also includes an odor elimination treatment to help aid in the removal of the pheromones from the insulation. In addition to assisting in the elimination of the pheromones, our odor treatment will ensure that any unpleasant “animal” odors are alleviated from the attic or attic insulation. Our Attic Decontamination Specialists will ensure that your attic is left odorless and pheromone free after using our using our specialized odor and pheromone elimination attic fogging treatment.

    Phase 3  

    The third and final phase of our attic fogging treatment is used to target fleas, mites, roaches or any other pests that rats, squirrels, raccoons or opossums bring into your attic during an infestation. This is an often-overlooked side of attic decontamination, however, it is an imperative one.

  • ATTIC INSULATION UPGRADES

    ATTIC INSULATION UPGRADES

    Attic Insulation upgrades are often recommended by our Rodent Control Specialist if your home's insulation does not meet the minimum required standard for insulation. After we have properly treated you attic, we can blow in new ISP fiberglass insulation with an R-38 value to ensure that your attic-space is now completely sanitized and that you're achieving maximum energy efficiency. While this is an optional service, it is generally one we recommend to clients with low insulation. In addition to increasing your home's energy efficiency, it is also a great way to cover any unsightly trails left behind by the animals.
