An Attic Contaminated With Animal Fecal Matter

Unwanted Presents from Your Attic Neighbors

Apart from a disastrous roof leak, nothing contaminates your attic faster than vermin making themselves at home inside your insulation. Unfortunately, that’s a smelly reality for many homeowners in the DFW area. Racoons, opossums, and squirrels often make their nest beneath the roof, which could lead to some scary health concerns for your family.

Our team at the ACT Home Energy Specialists offers professional attic decontamination in Fort Worth, TX to remove all that nasty refuse above your head. We also provide much needed disinfecting to eliminate microbial threats from your old attic neighbors.

The Decontamination Process

The key first step in decontaminating your attic is removing the source of the problem. While we recommend contacting your local wildlife expert for live removal, our team is more than happy to rid your attic space of animal remains and feces. We’ll gladly remove your contaminated attic insulation as well.

Once the spoiled insulation has been safely removed, our experts examine the condition of your attic. Rodents have a tendency to nibble on wiring and air ducts (especially in the winter), so we check for electrical damage and duct leaks. If animals have managed to harm your air ducts, our sealing services can protect you from expensive surges in your energy bills.

Our Next Steps

Even after the gross stuff has been removed, there are still several steps to go before your attic is back to 100 percent. It is essential that the space be disinfected properly. Your attic may also require additional care to avoid energy waste. To learn more about these next steps, call our local experts at 817-781-8781 and ask about attic decontamination in Fort Worth, TX.

Disinfecting the Attic Area

Animal feces and carcasses can carry harmful pathogens, including salmonella and the hantavirus. Even after the attic has been rid of contaminants, disinfecting the area is essential! Our professionals utilize a highly-rated disinfectant solution with both fast-action and residual effectiveness. That last perk is key, as some pathogens require additional time to eliminate completely.

Our disinfecting process provides numerous benefits for your attic space. Some important details about the product we use:

  • We only utilize EPA registered disinfectant.
  • It kills viruses, bacteria, and fungal growth.
  • The solution deodorizes the attic, removing unpleasant smells.
  • It isn’t corrosive, flammable, or harmful to the skin.
  • It’s rated by the EPA as safe for use around children and animals.
  • The spray provides a 24 hour window of protection for enhanced effectiveness.
