How to Remove Rodent Droppings from Your Home or Business

How to Remove Rodent Droppings from Your Home or Business - Bio-One of Pittsburgh

If you've discovered a rodent infestation in your home or business, it's important to take action immediately. Not only are rodents unsightly and destructive, but they also carry viral diseases which can be transmitted to humans. That's why it's crucial to call a professional cleanup service like Bio-One of Pittsburgh. We have the experience and expertise necessary to safely remove rodent droppings from your property and prevent any health hazards from arising.

Importance of taking action immediately upon discovering rodent droppings

Mice and rat droppings can carry dangerous bacteria and diseases, which can be transmitted to humans long after the waste has dried. Additionally, common household pests like deer mice are quick to reproduce, which can cause infestations and costly problems due to their chewing, gnawing, and droppings.

Call Bio-One if you're dealing with rat and mouse droppings in your home or business. We remove rodent droppings from any residential and commercial setting. Our team is trained to safely and effectively remove all traces of rodent exposure, so you can rest assured your property is clean and disinfected after a pest control service.

Dangers of rodents and their droppings

Many diseases are directly transmitted by rodents, such as Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) and leptospirosis. Hantavirus is a life-threatening disease that can be contracted through contact with rodent urine or droppings. Leptospirosis is another serious bacterial disease that can be caused by exposure to contaminated water or soil. Both of these diseases can be fatal if not treated promptly.

Rodent-borne diseases are a serious public health concern and should not be taken lightly. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you may have been exposed to rodents and nesting materials. Be sure to practice good hygiene and cleanliness habits to prevent exposure in the first place. Rodent droppings are a health hazard and should be avoided at all costs.

In addition to the diseases mentioned above, rodents can also transmit several other illnesses indirectly. For example, suppose rats or mice infest your home. In that case, they can contaminate surfaces with their urine or droppings, leading to infection if you come into contact with these contaminated materials. Rodents can also carry fleas, mites, and ticks, which can all transmit diseases to humans.

What you can do if you encounter rodent droppings in your home or business

Wear gloves and a mask when cleaning traces of rodents, and wet the droppings with a disinfectant or bleach solution before sweeping them up. Be sure to dispose of the droppings in a sealed plastic bag, and most importantly, wash your hands thoroughly after cleaning. If you have pets, keep them away from the area until it is clean. If you have young children, make sure they do not touch the droppings, walk, crawl, or be near the area.

It is important to notice that cleaning up after a rat or mouse infestation without the proper training does not guarantee complete disinfection. If you want to ensure your home or business is disinfected properly, call Bio-One for immediate assistance.
