Animal Feces Clean Up Service
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:
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.
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.
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.”
