Restoration After Pest Removal

images (1)

 

If you have found evidence of an unwanted critter living in your attic or another part of your home, you probably have already called a pest removal expert or exterminator to remove it. After the animal is gone, you likely will be left with damage they left behind. Who do you call to repair this damage and restore your home to its original condition?  You should call a restoration expert to restore and remodel your space!

A restoration expert will thoroughly examine the affected space, taking care to look at insulation, wood, and other building materials, in order to see what has been impacted by the pest. Many times, when pests infiltrate your home, they can do a significant amount of damage to your space through urination, defecation, chewing, or nesting. This damage can impact the smell and even the structure of your home. Ceilings may become stained or cracked, and walls can be damaged and may eventually collapse.  The restoration expert will remove the damaged areas and restore your space through remodeling.

Is a restoration expert is really necessary?

Even if you have had the animal removed quickly, the damage is likely already done.  Rodents and other pests can cause damage previously mentioned through urination and chewing, but their waste can also release disease-causing airborne toxins into your home such as:

  • Hantavirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Streptobacillus monliformis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Tularemia
  • Roundworm

These toxins can be brought into other parts of your home through ductwork and vents. A restoration specialist is trained on containment of these toxins and will be able to safely remove the contaminated areas. Floors to Ceiling Restoration recently restored an attic after a family of rats took up residence. We will spare you the details but it was definitely a job for a professional and trained restoration company! Contact Floors to Ceiling Restoration today for all your home’s restoration needs!
