A rodent infestation in your home can be a serious problem. Not only are deer mice and other rodents unsightly and often smelly, but they can also pose a health risk to you and your family. Rodents can carry disease, and their droppings can contaminate food and surfaces in your home.

 

Rodents are especially dangerous in cold, rainy weather, as they will look for warmth in the house garage, basement, attic, crawl spaces, and any dark, low-traffic area. If left unattended, rats, mice, pigeons, and even bats can turn your home into a nesting site, creating dangerous and costly infestations, not to mention the health risks for you, your loved ones, and even your pets.

Bio-One offers rodent droppings removal services to residential and commercial properties that may have been impacted by rodent infestations and its many consequences: rodent excrement, rodent urine, and nesting material. We also take care of the cleaning process that comes after hiring a pest control company, as many of these businesses do not cover removing dead rodents, nesting material, and other contaminated materials.

Why are rodents dangerous?

 

Rodents and other household pests can quickly become a problem for home and business owners because they can carry diseases transmitted to humans. They can also cause damage to property by chewing through wires and gnawing on wood and other materials. In some cases, they may even bite people.

What are the dangers of rodents in your home?

 

Mice and rats are known to spread over 35 diseases. These diseases can be transmitted to humans through bites, scratches, or even just contact with their fur. Salmonella, for instance, is a disease that can be contracted from contact with rat droppings.

 

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) is another dangerous disease that rodents can transmit via direct contact with urine, droppings, and saliva. This virus can cause severe respiratory illness in humans and may even be fatal in some cases. Leptospirosis is another viral disease that rodents can transmit; it can infect the liver and kidneys and may lead to death in some cases.

How to identify potential rodent infestations?

 

There are a few tell-tale signs that you may have a rodent or mouse infestation in your home or business. These include:

 

  • Sightings of rodents themselves, either dead or alive

  • Droppings or urine stains left behind by rodents

  • Chewed food packaging or other items

  • Gnaw marks on wood or electrical cables

  • Nests made out of shredded paper or fabric

  • Footprints or tail marks in dusty areas

  • A musky smell produced by the rodents' scent glands

 

If you notice any of these signs, it's important to contact a professional rodent control company as soon as possible to get rid of the problem before it gets worse. If you need help cleaning up traces of rodents, such as rodent urine, mouse poop, and nesting materials left behind, contact Bio-One.

 

How can Bio-One's rodent droppings cleanup service help you stay safe from the effects of potential rodent exposure?

 

Our certified technicians will first identify and seal off any potential entry points that rodents may be used to gain access to your home or office. We will then proceed to clean and disinfect all areas where droppings are present, using only the latest procedures and EPA-approved chemicals.

 

Any waste material is removed and disposed of safely and sanitary to avoid exposure to rodent-borne diseases. Our goal is to help you create a safe and healthy environment for you, your family, or your employees, as even a single dead rodent can carry bacterial disease and infections.

 

Contact us today to learn more about our services and how we can help you and your loved ones protect from potential exposure to contaminated materials.

The importance of cleaning up after a rodent infestation

 

Cleaning up after a pest/rodent control company can prevent future infestations from happening. Pests can leave behind droppings and other materials that can attract new pests to the home. Another reason is that it can help reduce the risk of exposure to pesticides and other chemicals used during the treatment process.

 

The cleanup process must go along with continuous monitoring of the areas where rodents were present. It's important to keep all areas of the house clean and disinfected. Be careful with what you read online. Try looking for recognized pages regarding proper cleaning products like disinfectant or bleach solution to remove traces, mouse droppings, and urine.
