Should I disinfect my attic?

November 23, 2020

If you’ve just recently had to deal with rodents in your attic, you may have been informed of the option of disinfecting. But is it necessary and is it worth it? Read more to see if disinfecting your attic is right for you.

Why should I disinfect my attic?

If you’re dealing with rodents in your home, you know that getting rid of them is only one step in the process to take back control over your house. A comprehensive plan not only includes eliminating the rodents from your attic space, but also preventing a future rodent reinfestation. This process, called an exclusion, includes sealing up all holes, cracks, or other points of entry to keep new critters out. But even once the rodents are out, the reminders of their presence will still linger.

Rodents are constantly leaving trails of feces, urine, and oils, and with it, odors and contaminates. These contaminates often pose a number of health risks. Additionally, the persistent odors may attract other animals to your attic. So, for the most effective and comprehensive treatment, consider disinfecting your attic to eliminate unpleasant odors and the risk of dangerous diseases, such as hauntavirus.
