Animal Feces Clean Up Service

Animals & rodents leave behind dangerous waste that can harm homeowners and their families. Animal and Rodent droppings are the cause of dozens of diseases. There is a real danger through direct contact or simply by breathing the air in these contaminated environments. Children can be sensitive to all forms of waste created by these rodents. Upper Restoration professionals are well trained and have IICRC certifications. We recommend that rodent and animal waste removal be done by an experienced professional wearing PPE-Tyvek suits, industry standard gloves/boots, and respirators

The Upper Restoration Process

Upper Restoration’s team of well-trained technicians can take care of any kind of animal feces clean up. Our protocol is the same as for mold removal. We take animal droppings clean up very seriously and treat animal feces as a biohazard. These are the necessary steps to ensure the removal and decontamination of any bacteria caused by animal droppings:

Droppings Removal

The droppings and urine left behind by the animals must be removed by hand, because vacuum can cause the bacteria in the droppings to become airborne and circulate.

Odor & Pathogens Decontamination

We only use top-quality products and equipment to take care of odor and pathogens removal. We’ll bring in our state-of-the-art negative air machines to filter the air so the area is not re-contaminated. By creating negative pressure, the machine’s air scrubbers capture the contaminated air in your home and replace it with safe, non-contaminated air.

Clean and Disinfect Area

Eco-friendly anti-microbials and biosides are used by our technicians to totally clean every inch of the contaminated area. Our skilled technicians are highly trained to deal with any animal droppings clean up scenario, and we offer a quick response time.

Diseases Spread by Droppings

Rodents, such as mice and rats, can leave droppings that can spread bacteria, contaminate food, and cause allergic reactions.  Droppings can also spread diseases and viruses such as the following:

  • Hantavirus – “Hantavirus is a potentially life-threatening disease transmitted to humans by rodents—primarily, the white-footed deer mouse. People become infected through exposure or inhalation of infected rodent urine, droppings or saliva, and the chances increase when people are near spaces where rodents are actively living.”
  • Bubonic plague – “…is usually spread by the bite of an infected rodent flea and can cause fever, headache and painfully swollen lymph nodes.”
  • Salmonellosis – Salmonellosis is a type of food poisoning spread by rodent feces, especially through the consumption of contaminated food. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal pain.”
  • Rat-Bite Fever – “Rat-bite fever (RBF) is a potentially fatal infectious disease spread by infected rodents or the consumption of food contaminated by rodents.”
  • Leptospirosis – “a bacterial disease that affects humans and animals. It is caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. Leptospirosis can lead to kidney damage, meningitis (inflammation of the membrane around the brain and spinal cord), liver failure, respiratory distress, and even death.”
