So, you finally chased out all of the mice and rats residing in your home, but unfortunately, your work isn’t over yet. Every building needs to be decontaminated after the removal of rodents for several reasons, which include the following:
- Rodents leave behind lots of feces and urine. Not only is this unsanitary and disgusting, but it can also wreak havoc on the moisture levels of your home, causing ventilation problems and the growth of mold and fungi.
- There might still be dead mice or rats in your home. Even though you got all of the live animals out of the house, there may still be a few carcasses hiding in your walls, attic, or underneath your floor. A decontamination service will help locate any deceased rodents and remove them.
- Mice and rats often build secret nests. Since they are often made of trash and materials that can rot, they will need to be removed during the decontamination process.
- There might be a lingering foul odor. Rat droppings, hair, and nest materials can all contribute to a general stale smell in your house. By having your home decontaminated, you can help deodorize the rodents’ former living spaces.
- The rodents might have brought nasty and potentially dangerous germs into your house. Horrible illnesses like hantavirus, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis can all be transmitted through rodent urine and feces, so it’s always best to have the area disinfected thoroughly after the rodents have been removed.
