It is very important to keep your crawlspace clean and free of any rodents. It’s bad enough that insects can get into your home but knowing pesky rodents can take residence as well can be too much for any homeowner to deal with on their own. Vents can wear over time and this is how some small animals could get into your crawlspace. That is why hiring a professional like Disaster Master can help you find the access points where the rodents are getting through and help you with the clean up and decontamination.
Recently, Disaster Master was hired to do a rodent decontamination in a crawlspace of a manufactured home in Lincoln City, Oregon. The rodents had left the crawlspace full of feces, urine and torn insulation. The crew wore full hazmat gear during the decontamination. They removed the belly board, all debris, all insulation and the existing vapor barrier from the crawlspace. Next, they did a detail clean of the entire crawlspace which includes spray, scrub and wipe down on all affected areas with an antimicrobial to sanitize the entire crawlspace. Lastly, new vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams to complete this crawlspace decontamination. The homeowner was very happy to see that her crawlspace was rodent free and decontaminated.
