Removing and trapping the pest in your attic is only part of the job. The other part is to prevent any more pests from returning. The way to do that is to pest proof and provide Attic Decontamination.
As most people may know, leaving an attic with foul smells is not only unpleasant it is also a danger to one's health. It also attracts other animals to your attic. That is why cleaning and decontaminating the attic after an infestation is crucial in preventing future infestations and insuring there is no more attic decontamination. If you attempt to clean the attic yourself, it is strongly recommended to have proper equipment. As part of Wildlife Abatements complete rodent, pigeon, and animal control, we offer trapping, removing, proofing, cleaning, and attic decontamination. As part of our attic decontamination process we vacuum any droppings, clean infected areas, and replace the infected insulation with new insulation. If feces is not cleaned then more rodents, animals, or birds may come and you may even have to deal with a stronger smell of a dead animal in your attic.
Once the insulation and waste is removed we begin the attic decontamination process by killing off any fungi or bacteria using a Disinfectant. This all-in-one solution is a powerful disinfectant that is highly effective against disease-causing bacteria. But it’s also a sanitizer that can rid an area of germs and fungi that can cause sickness and mold. It’s a powerful virucide – capable of killing the viruses you have read about in today’s headlines, as well as many others that you may not even be aware are stalking your home. Once the attic decontamination is complete we will then deodorize.
Attics and wild animals do not go over well and will normally lead to Attic Restoration. It is always important to consider some level of bio-hazard clean ups where animals, bats and birds have occupied an attic and having the contamination removed in remote problem areas or the entire attic.
The purpose of a attic decontamination is to revive and replace damage caused by an invasion caused by bats, birds, raccoons, squirrels and other vermin. When a raccoon, opossum, squirrel, bird or bat take up residence in attic they do not come alone they also bring parasites and insects with him and getting your attic back to a healthy state involves getting rid of everything brought in with your unwanted attic guests, and performing attic restoration.
The attic if left unrestored can become a dangerous breeding ground for various wildlife diseases that eventually can affect the health and welfare of every member of your home via airborne hazards of diseases such as raccoon roundworm and histomplasmosis.
Many invasions of homes additionally affect the home's wiring which often become chewed by members of the rodent family which result in bare wires and eventual house fires if the problem is not addressed with proper attic restoration. Heating and cooling ducts often become destroyed or filled with feces and can circulate these contaminants throughout your home.
Now here is the basic concept of a complete attic decontamination
Exclusion- First and foremost, a wildlife bird, control or bat removal specialist performs a complete exclusion to guaranteeing no other vermin can re-enter and destroy the attic again.
Clean Up- Removal of contaminants the dead animals, their feces and getting all the old soiled and matted insulation out of and disposed of properly.
Insect Treatment- Treat for any insect infestation which is common with most any vermin.
Disinfect/Deodorize/Fix Wiring- Bring in a licensed electrician to replace all damaged wiring. Disinfect and deodorize the attic before any new insulation is added to the attic.

Allow us to check your home for proper ventilation and perform attic restoration and attic decontamination for you.
Proper ventilation prevents heat build-up, keeping your attic cooler in the summer and removing damaging moist air from your attic in the winter. It directly correlates to the performance of your insulation and can result in reduced energy consumption throughout the year, as well as damage prevention and added comfort for all seasons.
To ensure proper ventilation, we’ll restore your attic by removing contaminated insulation and installing new, higher quality insulation in its place. Our insulation outperforms traditional insulation in nearly every category. We also incorporate a borate-based pest control product into the insulation, which helps control attic pests such as ants, termites and cockroaches. This is the final step of attic decontamination.
After attic decontamination has been performed our insulation can also help control your energy costs by eliminating air infiltration, sound transmission and controlling heat loss and gain.Call Wildlife Abatement today for Professional Attic Restoration at (318)553-3006
