How We Remove Raccoon Feces In Your Attic In Germantown TN
Cleaning up and removal of raccoon feces and urine is not an easy or simple task. Raccoon feces contains a lot of bacteria and harbors diseases that are not common in other wildlife. The diseases in their feces can be very harmful to humans and other household animals like cats and dogs.
It is very important to handle wild animal feces properly using the correct protective gear. The person cleaning up the animal droppings and urine must use protective goggles, gloves, a face mask with respirator, and a full bodysuit.
Raccoon feces must have proper disposal, cleaning and disinfecting. Our company utilizes products that neutralize odors from both raccoon feces and urine.When cleaning up fecal matter, airborne particles may unknowingly be distributed. These particles can get into your nostrils or eyes. If this occurs exposure symptoms may show up anywhere from one to four weeks.
Attic Restoration After Feces Cleanup
Attic restoration may be a necessary step with heavy fecal or urine build-up. When a family of raccoons has lived in your attic over a period of time, the insulation will become unusable. Attic restoration is your best option at that point and we can recommend companies to provide this service. These restoration companies come into your home and evaluate what can be salvaged and what is ruined.
If you leave insulation that has been saturated with urine, the odor can build up and drift into your home. If there is heavy urine saturation, it will start to show on the walls and ceilings of your home. The urine moisture in the insulation will soon start to grow mold. Breathing mold particles will make members of your family very sick.
