Key takeaways

  • Choose a licensed and experienced loft clearance service provider who specialises in pest infestation clean-up and removal.

  • It is important to contact a professional pest control service provider to assess and treat the infestation. Loft clearance services alone will not prevent future infestations.

  • If you have had a rodent infestation, it is important to seal up all entry points to prevent further infestations.

  • Loft clearance services may require the use of protective gear such as gloves, masks, and goggles to protect against exposure to hazardous materials and waste products.

  • It is important to follow the advice of the loft clearance service provider and take necessary precautions to ensure your safety.

 

Loft Clearance Services Following a Pest Infestation

Loft clearance services following a pest infestation refer to the process of removing any debris, waste, and contaminated materials from the loft or attic area of a building after a pest infestation.


Pest infestations, such as rodents or insects, can cause significant damage to the insulation, wiring, and other materials in the loft. The waste products produced by the pests, such as urine, faeces, and shed skin, can also contaminate the area and create unpleasant odors.


Loft clearance services involve removing all contaminated materials, including insulation, wiring, and any other items that may have been damaged by the pests or contaminated by their waste products. The space is then thoroughly cleaned and disinfected to eliminate any remaining traces of pests and their waste products.


It is important to have a professional loft clearance service carried out after a pest infestation to ensure that all contaminated materials are removed safely and effectively, and to prevent any further damage to the building. This can also help to prevent the re-infestation of pests in the future.



The Importance of Loft Clearance Services Following a Pest Infestation

PGM & SON are specialists in the removal of contaminated loft insulation, pipe lagging, pest corpses and pest faeces such as rat and mouse droppings and bird guano, including disinfection, cleaning and the laying of new insulation and pipe lagging.

Contaminated Loft Insulation Removal

Our trained technicians are experienced professionals in dealing with rat infestations, eliminating the cause and cleaning and decontaminating loft spaces, council properties, cellars, outbuildings and commercial sites.


Many of the lofts we visit have poor insulation and most are not worth trying to save, so we believe taking everything out, cleaning up the mess, spraying to remove dangerous germs and diseases, then re-insulating to government recommendations is the best policy.


When pests such as rats, mice, squirrels and birds take up residence in a loft widespread damage is caused to pipe lagging and loft insulation.


Diseases such as Psittacosis, Salmonella, from bird pests - such as pigeons - are passed to humans from contact or inhalation and leptospirosis from contact with rat urine.

We can then provide a full clean of the area if required.


  • We carry out a disinfection with biocide to eradicate all harmful pathogens, bacteria that cause disease.

  • Clean and clear loft of all contaminated loft insulation, damaged pipe lagging and pest faeces and droppings.

  • Lay new loft insulation and renew pipe lagging.


Finally, consider investing in preventative measures such as regular pest control inspections and maintaining a clean and clutter-free living environment to prevent future pest infestations.
