When animals have been found living inside your home, decontamination is an essential part of the attic cleaning process! Even though every animal may have been trapped and relocated, you're still left with all of the contamination that they've left behind, including urine, feces, blood, carcasses, and parasites. These are all breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria, viruses, and even life threatening disease, according to the USDA and the Center for Disease Control.
Unless these contaminants in your attic are properly removed, they can remain in your home forever. Many of the infectious diseases can lay dormant for years, continuing to pose detrimental health risks to anyone who may come into contact with them. Even simply breathing in the contaminated air that may find its way into the living space of your home can lead to serious health problems.
In addition to the numerous health risks, the odors that will permeate the house, will also serve as an attractant to the rest of the local wildlife population. The same horrendous odors that can quickly become unbearable for humans, may as well be a neon sign, that your attic makes a suitable home for nuisance wildlife. Because of this, a thorough attic cleanup process is necessary to not only protect the health of your home and residence, but also to prevent further infestations.
