The attic and crawlspace in residential or commercial properties tend to be forgotten about until there is an issue inside of them. The crawlspace is the area under the home where air circulates. Attics are typically used for storage space in the upper part of the building. In both of these areas dust, water and rodents can accumulate if not regularly monitored. It is important to address any rodent or water damage issues in attics or crawlspace right away in order to prevent structural damage and improve air quality. It’s recommended to have professional like Disaster Master decontaminate the attic and crawlspace if rodents have been living there.
Recently, in Pacific City Oregon there was a commercial building that had rodents in their attic and in the crawlspace. The owner of the property noticed a fowl smell in their office. They called Disaster Master right away to help them identify what was causing this awful smell in their office. Disaster Master responded right away and even went out on a weekend to try to look for the source of the smell. They found dead rodents hiding in the insulation in the crawlspace and in the attic. Both areas needed to be decontaminated from rodents. One HEPA air scrubber was set during the remediation process to help clean the air in the attic. Next, floor protection was set from the front door to the attic entry to help keep the interior of the home clean. All insulation, debris, feces, and dead carcasses were removed from the attic and crawlspace. The existing vapor barrier was also removed and disposed of from the crawlspace. A detail clean was performed in the attic and crawlspace which included HEPA Vacuuming all surfaces and spraying antimicrobial to disinfect the affected areas. New six ml black vapor barrier was installed in the crawlspace with red tape on the important seams. The owner of this building was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did. They could return to their office that been fully decontaminated for rodents in the attic and crawlspace.
