Removing Animal Droppings From Your Insulation
Animal droppings in your insulation are one of the most common calls we receive. Any time an animal gets in under your home or in your attic, it is because it is looking for a secure, cozy area to have young. Insulation strips and blown-in insulation makes a great nesting material for animals. Large and small animals will utilize insulation to create a suitable nesting location and will tear away chunks of insulation and drag it into a concealed area of the attic or crawlspace.
Animal feces in your insulation is a hazard, as droppings inside an attic or crawlspace do not breakdown with limited ventilation. If droppings were outside they can breakdown naturally exposed to the elements. Droppings inside can thrive with bacteria, pathogens, and other diseases, and can really be a great concern when animals are present in the attic or crawlspace disturbing the droppings. Airborne particulates from disturbed animal droppings will contaminate insulation that may otherwise look ok. This is why it is crucial to have a wildlife specialist to inspect your attic and crawlspace insulation.
Animal droppings accumulated in your attic insulation needs to be manually removed to keep the circulation of particulates down to a minimum. Most insulation companies will remove droppings and insulation together in insulation hoses, creating a hazardous environment that can cause fecal spores to become airborne. That is why professional help for dropping removal from insulation should only be performed by a specialist.
Removing Animal Nests and Bird Nests From Insulation
When wildlife invades your attic or crawlspace, it is usually to create a suitable nesting location to have young. Animals from mice and birds, to even opossums, raccoons, and skunks will build nests large enough to create an unsafe hazardous environment in your attic and crawlspace. Nests can harbor animal droppings, pathogens, and parasites in most all cases.
