Beware At Your Attic



The droppings and urine can act as a vector for disease, such as Leptospirosis, salmonella infection, raccoon roundworm, hookworm, Cryptosporidiosis, and more.

Most of these are of lower risk, and only occur if feces is accidentally ingested or in some cases if dust is inhaled. Feces and urine can also be a fertile place for mold growth, which can cause harmful spores or Histoplasmosis. Again, occurrence of these is rare, and depends largely on you interacting with the feces in the attic. But there are other reasons to clean the attic, such as odor issues.

Even in you don’t notice the odor, other animals will, especially since animal waste often contains pheromones that attract other animals. Even the smell of rodents can attract snakes into the attic. Your attic may contain nesting material, and parasites such as fleas or mites, which can get into the house and bite.

Attic restoration isn’t always necessary in my opinion, but if you have a heavy amount of attic damage and animal waste, it may be a good idea. * Call today for free estimate.
