Bats can create extensive damage to your attic and insulation. The big problem with bat guano (poop) is that it can cause diseases such histoplasmosis, this is a respiratory disease that can have varying effects on people. It is important to removal all insulation that has been contaminated by bat guano from the attic.
Before The Removal Process
We make sure all the rooms have proper flooring down and plastic is hung to prevent the airborne spread of bacteria and fungi. Temporary lighting is set in the attic space for proper visualization to locate all of the damaged insulation.
Removing The Contaminated Waste
Removing the damaged insulation is done either through a high powered insulation vacuum or by bagging up the damaged insulation into large construction trash bags. The waste and insulation is removed through an open window or gable vent into a dumpster as to not track it through the home.
Removing The Contaminated Waste
Once all of the droppings and insulation is removed from the attic it’s time to sanitize and deodorize. We use an antimicrobial spray or fogger to decontaminate the attic and remove all foreign bacteria and fungi. After this we deodorize the attic with a latex based kills stain which locks in the odors keeping them from entering the home.
Insulating The Attic
The home owner can choose which type of insulation to be put back into the attic. We recommend installing cellulose insulation for proper air flow. Generally you will get up to an R-49 value and even R-60 if requested.
