Residential buildings such as houses, condominiums and even apartments have a crawlspace under the building. This provides an area where the air in the home is able to circulate and allows for space between the house and the ground outside in case there are any floods. A crawlspace has access points and vents where rodents can get in. If rodents get into a crawlspace they can damage the insulation, vapor barrier, wires, pipes and ducting. It’s recommended to call a pest company first to trap and remove the rodents properly. Then it’s necessary to hire a professional like Disaster Master to decontaminate the crawlspace.
Recently, in Lincoln City, Oregon there was a home that had heavy rodent activity. The homeowner hired Disaster Master to professionally decontaminate the entire crawlspace after all the live rodents had been trapped. The crew wore full hazmat gear to protect themselves during the remediation process. All insulation, rodent feces, and debris were removed, bagged and disposed of. The existing vapor barrier and flex ducting were also removed. A detail clean of the entire crawlspace included spray, scrub and wipe with antimicrobial to disinfect. All areas of intrusion were sealed up and new hardened plastic vents were installed to help prevent rodents from getting back in. New black 6 ml vapor barrier was installed with red tape on the important seams. The homeowners were very pleased with the work that Disaster Master did gave them peace of mind that it was clean and sanitized from all the rodents.
