Crawlspaces that are not sealed up properly or have cracks in the foundation or vents can lead to rodents getting inside. If rodents get inside your crawlspace they can nest and burrow into the insulation leaving urine and feces throughout the crawlspace. This is why it’s crucial to seal up an areas of intrusion into the Crawlspace to keep the rodents out. Rodents can take their toll on a crawlspace by contaminating it feces, urine and dead carcasses. Once the areas of intrusion are sealed up and fixed it’s essential to hire a professional like Disaster Master to decontaminate the entire crawlspace. This entails removing all the contaminated materials and sanitizing the entire space to give the homeowners peace of mind.
Recently in Lincoln City, Oregon there was new home buyer that purchased a house. The crawlspace had signs of heavy rodent activity. The home owner hired Disaster Master to do a full crawlspace decontamination for rodents. All technicians wore full hazmat gear to protect them during the remediation process. One HEPA air scrubber was set during the decontamination to help clean the air. All insulation was removed and disposed of from the crawlspace. The existing vapor barrier, all rodent droppings and dead carcasses were removed and disposed of. Once all the contaminated materials were removed properly a detail clean of the entire crawlspace was completed with antimicrobial to disinfect. New six ml black vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams. Drying equipment such as 2 dehumidifiers and 4 air movers were set up in the crawlspace for one day to help dry out the space. The homeowner was very satisfied with the work that Disaster Master did because it gave them peace of mind with their new home that it was clean and rodent free.
