There are many different kinds of animals that can make their way into your crawlspace. Bats, mice, rats, raccoons, and squirrels are some of the common critters that we finds in crawlspaces. It’s important to investigate the entry points in the crawlspace to see where the animals are entering. Usually the rodents get into the crawlspace in the gaps, cracks or holes around the home. They can also get through some vents and screening if not properly maintained. The problem with animals living in the crawlspace is that they can contaminate the vapor barrier as well as all of the insulation with their urine and feces. This is why it’s crucial to call a professional like Disaster Master to safely remove the contaminated insulation and vapor barrier and sanitize the entire crawlspace.
Recently, in Neskowin Oregon a homeowner was getting ready to sell their house and noticed their crawlspace had rodents and bats. Before they can sell their house they called Disaster Master to decontaminate the entire crawlspace. Before Disaster Master could start the work the homeowner hired a professional bat removal company to have them inspect the crawlspace for removing any live bats because they are protected in the state of Oregon. Once Disaster Master got the clearance from the bat removal company there were no living bats in there they began the job. The existing vapor barrier was removed and dispose of. All insulation was removed and disposed of too. All rodent droppings, dirt and debris were removed and disposed of. All surfaces in the crawlspace were HEPA vacuumed. Next, a detail clean of the entire crawlspace was performed by spraying antimicrobial, scrubbing and wiping all surfaces to sanitize the affected areas. New vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams. The homeowner was satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because it gave her peace of mind that she could sell her house with a clean crawlspace that was rodent and bat free.
