Nashua Animal Feces Cleanup in Your Attic

SERVPRO Scares Away Critters and Cleans Up Your Nashua Attic

SERVPRO Restores Your Home to a Safe Condition After a Biohazard Cleanup

An animal infestation (bats, rats, and raccoons for example) is unhealthy, damaging to your home and leads to further problems. Animal waste contains pheromones; these scents attract other, sometimes larger, animals to the infestation. This next wave brings more disease and physical danger to every resident.

Removing the threats from biohazardous animal feces to your Nashua home requires more than a simple cleanup crew. SERVPRO has over twenty years of experience in New Hampshire restoring homes to a clean, livable condition. Our technicians treat each infestation as a biohazard and take every step necessary to eliminate the threat to your home and health.

We start with an inspection. Our team does not only visually examine your home, but also uses air testing equipment to check air contamination levels. In every case, our people begin the job wearing masks and sometimes protective clothing and shoes. If the contamination level is very high, we need to start clearing the air immediately.

To do this, we establish negative air pressure in the home. By placing fans and air movers at key points in the structure, we force the contaminated air outside. Exchanging the air provides a safer environment and begins to reduce the odor which can cause eye and nose irritation to anyone in the home. If the infestation is this severe, we do not recommend that the homeowner enters the house until the air content tests at a safer level.

As we clean the air, we begin work to remove the feces. Removal includes not only shoveling out the obvious waste but also clearing the attic and other areas in the home of contaminated insulation, drywall and even crossbeams and other support structure that were compromised by the infestation. By starting in the attic, we can also determine where urine and other waste has leaked into the house, contaminating more rooms.

Where possible, we try to prevent cutting into walls and ceilings. If there is no solid waste to remove, our technicians either spray the area or use a fogger with an anti-microbial or biocide agent. When we do have to pull down building material, we dispose of it and all animal waste per state and federal regulations.

Returning your home to a livable state is not a quick or easy task. At SERVPRO of Nashua, we understand that each job is not just a building, it is where our neighbors live and raise their families. If you need us, call us today at (603) 889-2311 to begin.
