Just because your crawl space or attic seems secure, doesn’t mean you are protected from an infestation. Sometimes the extra step of cleaning out an attic or crawlspace is necessary.

WHAT IS A CRAWLSPACE CLEAN-OUT?

A crawlspace clean-out is a service we provide for heavy rodent infestations. Clean-outs can vary depending on a few different factors, including the crawlspace itself and the scope of the rodent infestation. An infestation has to be pretty severe in order to require a complete clean-out. As with all of our services, our technician will perform a thorough inspection of the crawlspace to assess how extensive the infestation is, and determine the best course of action.

In some situations, a clean-out may have relatively minimal requirements, such as the removal and replacement of the vapor barrier. In instances where an infestation was more severe, however, a clean-out may entail more extensive procedures, including full sanitization and deodorization of the site as well as removal and replacement of vapor barriers, flex ducting, and insulation.

Why Do I Need a Crawlspace Clean-Out?

There are many reasons why you would want a crawlspace clean-out, one of the biggest being sanitation. Rodents can cause a lot of damage, and can completely contaminate a space with their urine and feces. This can create extremely unpleasant odors, and pose potential health and sanitation risks. In some instances, treating the crawlspace with an enzyme digester will mitigate the urine and feces smell.  Other times, just removing the vapor barrier will do the trick.

Another big reason for doing a crawlspace clean-out is to prevent future infestations. The smell of rodent urine and feces acts as a beacon to other rodents in the area. In essence, the odor tells other rodents that this space is a safe place to be and will draw others in. If a crawl space is heavily contaminated with the odor of urine and feces, rodents will make every attempt to gain access to that crawl space, even if it’s completely sealed. They can burrow into a structure or even chew their way in if determined enough.

Our Process

Our clean-out process is multifaceted. It starts with the mitigation of the active rodent infestation with traps, bait stations and exclusion (see our Rodent Proofing service). Once the infestation is under control, we remove all contaminated materials; this can include vapor barriers, insulation, and flex ducting.

Once the contaminated materials have been removed, we treat the space with a special enzyme digester that targets the odor-causing bacteria and disease vectors. The enzyme digester is applied with a fogger machine that will coat and neutralize everything in a space. Depending on the level of infestation, this process may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

We need to be sure that the rodent infestation is gone before proceeding with the rest of the clean-out.  We will return multiple times during the week to check traps and remove any dead rodents. Once we can safely conclude that the infestation is gone, we will install the new vapor barrier, insulation, and other new materials.

After the clean-out has been completed, we will re-install traps in the crawlspace or attic and continue to monitor and service them to prevent any future infestations.
