So, you’ve discovered a rodent problem on your property. What’s next? Well, once the exterminators have come and gone, and you’re certain that the rodents won’t return, you’ll have to clean up the droppings, nests, and other debris that the pests have left behind. You may have the stomach to take care of rodent cleanup yourself, but think twice before you break out those rubber gloves.

Despite being such small creatures, rodents can pose serious health risks to humans. The Hantavirus, a deadly disease that causes fever, muscle pain, and respiratory issues, is most commonly acquired by inhaling particles from the droppings, urine, or saliva of infected rodents. Rat urine can also spread of leptospirosis, which can result in severe liver and kidney damage.

Because rodent droppings can carry deadly diseases, it’s a good idea to hire rodent bio cleanup professionals, who have the necessary equipment and products to keep themselves safe while thoroughly sanitizing your home. Experts also have the knowledge and experience to check for signs of rodents in areas you may not think of. For example, you may know that mice were in your garage, but would you also think to check the attic to see if your insulation has been contaminated?
