Having an unwanted animal in your attic is more common than you might think. Animals tend to seek shelter that is safe in structure and comfortable rather than being exposed to the dangerous elements of the outdoors. It may be desirable in some situations to clean your attic to erase the damage unwelcome visitors have caused. They can leave behind remnants such as urine, hair, large amounts of droppings and more that can lead to insects taking their place. For a safe and sanitized attic space, these remnants must be carefully removed followed by a thorough sanitation and disinfection.
It’s important to replace the soiled insulation with new, clean insulation to eliminate hidden waste and odor. After removing the animal and its remnants, replacing the insulation is the next step of the cleaning process. This will leave the attic clean and still properly insulate your home.
