Rodents can become a serious problem for your house or property if not treated by professionals. During wintertime, they seek protection from cold in dark places. Rodents can reproduce very quickly, creating a dangerous environment for you and your loved ones.
Rodents can transmit over 35 different types of diseases, and the most common is the Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (also known as HPS). It’s a very dangerous disease that can be transmitted directly (from bite wounds and direct contact with urine and feces) or indirectly (by breathing contaminated air and dust). Residential properties are most affected by mice and rats. Rodent feces and droppings are known to be very infectious so, it’s important to turn to a professional in disinfection and sanitation to remediate areas where rodents might have been present.
Rodents carry bacteria and diseases that can transmit to humans from direct contact or indirectly, by being in the presence of highly infected areas. Rodents usually look for shelter indoors, primarily in dark areas like crawlspaces, garages, and attics. Cluttered spaces create a perfect environment for mice and rats to create nests. Bio-One of Chula Vista specialists follow strict guidelines and procedures to remediate houses and properties if they’re involved in hoarding scenarios.
If by any chance you chose to take care of rodents by yourself and need help with cleaning and disinfecting your house or property from dead mice and rats, Bio-One of Chula Vista can also provide you with professional, guaranteed disinfection and sanitation. Dead animals can carry multiple bacteria, which is usually airborne. So, mice and rats died in crawl spaces or inside your HVAC System, you might need help from Professionals to get to these areas and remove any biohazard.
HOW CAN RODENTS COME TO YOUR HOUSE OR PROPERTY?
Filling gaps and entryways is the best way to prevent rodents from coming to your house or property. Rodents can squeeze through the smallest spaces, whether it’s through doors, windows or even small cracks on the floor.
According to the CDC, you can look for gaps or holes outside your property in the following spaces:
-Around windows and doors.
-In the roof (gables, rasters and eaves).
-In the building foundations (this is a specially delicate area for rodents and other plagues to nest)
-HVAC systems (if rodents have been in these areas, you might be struggling with infections and other afflictions associated with rodents' feces and urine).
