Attic & Crawlspace Remediation Services
PCA Wildlife is a family owned company that has been in business since 1980. We specialize in attic/crawl space remediation services. Remediation services we offer include insulation removal, animal waste removal, vapor barrier installation, new insulation installation, deodorization and sanitation/decontamination.
Depending on what type of animal that is residing in your attic and how long they have been there will determine if attic remediation is necessary. If you are faced with this dilemma, we will send an experienced licensed wildlife technician out to your home.
During our inspection we will first determine what type of animal is living in the home. Things that our trained wildlife professionals look for are droppings on the insulation, tracks on the ductwork, tunnels in the insulation and nesting materials.
Attic Remediation Process
- We remove all contaminated insulation with an industrial insulation vacuum. If it is rolled insulation it is removed by hand and put into trash bags. Once all the insulation has been removed, it is then disposed in accordance with local regulations.
- We will fog the attic with a DSV (disinfectant, sanitizer and virucide). Any feces in the attic will be treated to make sure any diseases that can be contracted by airborne spores are prevented. Treatments will occur before and after contaminated insulation is removed and replaced.
- We then replace the insulation back to R30 code which will save you money on your heating/cooling bill.
Raccoons in the Attic
Raccoon feces contain a raccoon roundworm called baylisascaris procyonis. This is a parasitic worm that infects humans and can be fatal if not detected or treated accordingly. Millions of eggs are produced from one worm. These eggs can become airborne and when human’s breath them in it can lead to larval parasite migration to the central nervous system. Infection of baylisascaris can also be transmitted by coming in direct contact with raccoon feces. The eggs can live for years in dry feces. Humans can also contract the following diseases from raccoon feces: Giardia lamblia, Leptospirosis, Salmonella, Rickettsia rickettii and Trypanosoma cruzi.
