Rodent Clean-Up

Cleaning, Decontamination and Sanitization

Cal-Pure Clean, deal’s with customers everyday who are suffering from rodent infestation problems in their homes. Often times the infestation of these pests leave behind an awful odor in your home from their droppings, fecal matter, and urine.  This contamination can compromise your entire attic insulation. The scent left behind by their dropping, fecal matter and urine, keeps attracting the rodents back into your home. The only full proof way to solve your rodent problem after rodent proofing the exterior of your home is to, completely remove your current insulation, decontaminate and sanitize your attic.

Unlike many other companies, Cal-Pure Clean has an environmental clean-up back ground.
It doesn’t make sense to remove the contaminants through a home without any protection to the homeowner and their property.
We set up a containment, using negative pressure HEPA filtration at your attic access.
In many cases, we can set up a plastic tunnel to the exterior
This allows us to remove and dispose of contaminated insulation without exposing the occupants.
According to the CDC, viruses and bacteria are most susceptible to when aerosolized in dust.
The use of the containment, helps us control the dust and entrap any harmful particulates into HEPA filtration machines
Once the contaminated insulation and debris is removed, the remaining droppings and dust are HEPA vacuumed
A light biocide is then sprayed over the contained area to eliminate any remaining viruses and bacteria
The containment is then, wiped down and properly disposed of.

All Cal-Pure Clean employees utilize disposable Tyvek suits and HEPA filtered masks for protection.

Some helpful tip’s from the CDC website….

Eliminate possible rodent food sources

  • Keep food in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids.
  • Clean up spilled food right away and wash dishes and cooking utensils soon after use.
  • Keep outside cooking areas and grills clean.
  • Always put pet food away after use and do not leave pet-food or water bowls out overnight.
  • Keep bird feeders away from the house and utilize squirrel guards to limit access to the feeder by squirrels and other rodents.
  • Use a thick plastic or metal garbage can with a tight lid.
  • Keep compost bins as far away from the house as possible (100 feet or more is best).
  • Keep grains and animal feed in thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids. In the evening, uneaten animal feed should be returned to containers with lids.

If storing trash and food waste inside the home, do so in rodent-proof containers, and frequently clean the containers with soap and water. Dispose of trash and garbage on a frequent and regular basis, and pick up or eliminate clutter.

Eliminate possible nesting sites outside the home. Elevate hay, woodpiles, and garbage cans at least 1 foot off the ground. Move woodpiles far away from the house (100 feet or more is best). Get rid of old trucks, cars, and old tires that mice and rats could use as homes. Keep grass cut short and shrubbery within 100 feet of the home well trimmed.
