Wildlife cleanup refers to the removal of animal urine, feces, and the odors associated from it within your home or business. Properly cleaning and disinfecting wildlife urine and fecal matter is a very detailed process; much more involved than simply vacuuming up droppings. If done improperly it can lead to additional loss from animal reentry and pose health hazards if left unattended. The technicians at Creature Control know the importance of doing a job right the first time. We work with wildlife on a daily basis, so we know how animals can cause damage, how they can get into your house, their nesting habits, and their biology. Our experience allows us to comprehensively complete a job with no loose ends and future problems.
Unattended waste, like accumulated piles of droppings and urine-soaked insulation and drywall, left behind from creatures can transmit viral diseases. The bacteria within animal excretions can be hazardous from direct contact and may affect your air quality when airborne. It’s important to know what type of animal cleanup you’re facing and caution should always be used when and around areas with heavy droppings, especially in poorly ventilated areas such as the attic. Creature Control’s technicians can identify species by the fecal matter, enabling us to approach the cleanup in the safest and most efficient way possible.
After ensuring that all wildlife pests are removed and entry points are sealed, we clean the contaminated areas utilizing a negative air pressure system. This keeps the airflow fresh during the remediation process and ensures that the attic air does not get recirculated into the household. We also take measures in neutralizing pheromones, an especially important step. Mammals that have been in your residence leave behind a pheromone scent which tells other animals your attic is a warm, safe place to nest. We can treat your attic space with an anti-microbial agent and disinfectant that will sanitize the affected area and neutralize pheromone odors. Skipping this process only enables other animals seeking entry into your home or business.

We do not sanitize areas exposed to animals such as birds, mice, etc., nor do we disinfect in areas other than the attic (vent lines, living areas, etc.).
