Rodent and Animal Waste Cleanup in Aurora, IL
A rodent infestation in a home or building is a serious issue because these intrusive animals can cause serious property damage and create unsanitary conditions. It is common for animals like rats, mice, squirrels, and raccoons to seek shelter indoors and cause damage by digging through wood, drywall, and insulation. They can also leave behind biohazard materials like blood, urine, and droppings which can spread diseases. If your property is affected by a rodent infestation, you need to call a reputable exterminator to remove them. You then need to call a restoration professional that can clean up and restore the damage.

We do not remove pests from your home, but our technicians can effectively restore the damage they caused and safely remove biohazard materials left behind such as urine and feces. After the cleanup and repair, we will thoroughly clean and disinfect the area to ensure safe conditions.
Damage Caused by Rodents
Rodents and small animals such as rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, and even birds can find their way indoors through small spaces. They are most likely to find entry points in basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Once they get inside, they may chew or claw through wood, drywall, insulation, flooring, and furnishings which can result in significant property damage. They may also chew on electrical wires, disrupting your electrical system and increasing the risk of electrical fires.
The presence of these pests also leads to unsanitary conditions. Wild animals bring diseases and parasites with them which can affect the health of those within your home. Harmful bacteria and viruses can be found in the urine, feces, blood, and vomit of these animals. People can become sick through exposure to these dangerous biohazard materials or parasites, and a bite or scratch from a rodent can also spread illness or infection. Once the pests are removed by an exterminator, it is crucial to call our professionals to repair, clean, and sanitize the affected areas.
It is possible for rodents to infect humans with the following diseases:
- Rat-bite fever
- Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome
- Lymphocytic chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Hepatitis A
No matter what type of animal has invaded your home or building, they can cause major property damage and put your health at risk. Acting quickly to get the pests removed will help limit the amount of damage they cause. Calling our professionals as soon as possible to clean and restore your property after the animals are removed will reduce the risk of negative health effects.
