One of the biggest problems with pest and wildlife infestations is the waste and damage left behind. We clean up the filth they left, decontaminate and repair damage they caused.
If any pest has taken up residence in your home or business, cleaning up after they are removed is essential. Unattended waste can transmit diseases, such as large piles of droppings or urine-soaked drywall and insulation left behind. The bacteria within animal waste is a health hazard from direct contact or breathing in airborne particles.
Another issue is that not all pests are alike. It’s critical to know what type of animal cleanup you’re dealing with, and caution must always be used in and around areas with heavy droppings, especially in poorly ventilated areas like an attic. Titan Pest & Wildlife’s experienced technicians can identify the species by the fecal matter, addressing the cleanup and sanitization process in the safest and most effective way possible.
Health Issues Caused by Animal Waste
From roaches to raccoons, the waste left by pests is not an issue to take lightly. All of these pests bring with them a fair amount of contamination, and any traces of urine, feces, hair, blood, and oils must be removed entirely.
Here are some examples of the dangers pest contamination leaves behind:
- Cockroaches are nasty, unsanitary insects, and they do pose a health risk for people. They feed on garbage, breed in sewage, and deposit waste all over the areas they travel on and inhabit. The World Health Organization states that cockroaches may carry microorganisms that cause dysentery, diarrhea, plague, cholera, typhoid fever, leprosy, and viral diseases like poliomyelitis. They also produce a protein that can lead to an allergic reaction in some people. Their saliva, moltings, waste, and even dead cockroaches can act as triggers.
- Mice and rats are known to cause serious illness. The house mouse is the most common health threat due to the allergens it spreads, causing allergic rhinitis and asthma. This mouse may carry a protein in its blood that can trigger allergic reactions in susceptible people. Some of the most common diseases mice and rats carry include Hantavirus, Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM), Leptospirosis, and Salmonellosis.
- Bats are rarely dangerous to humans. However, what is dangerous is guano – their droppings. Humans can contract Histoplasmosis. It is an infectious disease caught by inhaling the spores of the fungus Histoplasma capsulatum. Anyone can get Histoplasmosis; however, certain people can have severe reactions to inhaling it.
- Raccoons are seriously destructive creatures, and they are also known to carry diseases. The most common diseases include Rabies, Roundworms, Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, and Giardiasis.
Residential Animal Cleanup
Pest and animal cleanup following an infestation is critical to keep your family and pets safe! Did you know that animal and insect droppings are full of diseases? For instance, animals like raccoons can carry distemper, which can transfer to your dog if they discover the droppings.
If you have an infestation in your home, contamination is always an issue. After rodents, roaches, or other animals or insects have been inside your home, it is essential to have any bacteria left behind professionally cleaned up. Please do not attempt to clean it up yourself, as direct contact with feces, urine, and infested materials can make you severely sick.
