Removing Loft Insulation After Rats: A Comprehensive Guide

Discovering rats or other rodents in your loft can be distressing, especially when they have contaminated the insulation. Here’s a comprehensive guide to our insulation removal services after a rat infestation, detailing our process, the types of insulation we remove, our team size, post-removal cleanup service, health hazards, and why choosing a professional company like ours is crucial.

Our Insulation Removal Process After Rats

  1. Assessment and Inspection

    • Our team conducts a thorough assessment of the loft to determine the extent of the rat infestation and the condition of the insulation.
    • We identify areas of damage and contamination to prioritize removal.

  2. Types of Contaminated Insulation We Remove

    • Fiberglass Insulation: Damaged fiberglass insulation can harbor rat nests and droppings.
    • Cellulose Insulation: Often used in older homes, cellulose insulation can become a nesting material for rodents.
    • Vermiculite Insulation: Particularly if it's contaminated with rat feces, vermiculite insulation requires safe removal.

  3. Team Size and Equipment

    • We deploy a trained team equipped with protective gear, including respirators, gloves, and coveralls.
    • Specialized vacuum equipment is used to safely remove contaminated insulation without spreading particles.

  4. Post-Removal Clean Up Service

    • After insulation removal, we thoroughly clean and disinfect the entire loft space to eliminate any remaining contaminants and odors.
    • HEPA vacuum cleaners and environmentally safe disinfectants are used to ensure a clean and safe environment.

  5. Why Remove Rat-Infested Insulation?

    • Health Hazards: Rat droppings and urine can contain harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites that pose health risks to humans, including leptospirosis, hantavirus, and salmonella.
    • Odor and Allergens: Decomposing rat carcasses and feces emit foul odors and airborne allergens that can affect indoor air quality.
    • Structural Damage: Rodents can chew through insulation, electrical wires, and other materials, causing damage to the loft's structure.

  6. Why Choose a Professional Company Like Ours?

    • Expertise and Experience: We have extensive experience in handling rodent-infested insulation, ensuring thorough and safe removal.
    • Safety Standards: Our team follows strict safety protocols and regulations to protect both our workers and your household from exposure to contaminants.
    • Efficiency: We efficiently complete the removal process, minimizing disruption to your home and allowing you to return to a clean, safe environment promptly.
    • Comprehensive Service: Beyond removal, we provide comprehensive cleanup and disinfection services to restore the loft to a sanitary condition.

I highly recommend these guys who recently helped us clear and clean out our loft in Newcastle after we had rodents in. They removed old junk and the old insulation then cleaned up the rodent droppings and hoovered the loft out. They were very friendly, made sure no dust and dirt got into our home and cleaned up after themselves. We are elderly people so we couldn't do this but they did everything in half a day. We tried all over to get someone to do the works for us but these guys were the only ones to come out and give us a qoute. Would use again if we ever have another rodent problem.

We used this company a couple of days ago and are really impressed with the overall service provided. The lads were here almost 4 and a half hours completely clearing the loft and cleaning it afterwards. They used coverings on the stairs and landing to keep the carpet clean. Our loft looks like a new loft now and we didn't realise just how big it is with all the rubbish removed. Great set of lads, would highly recommend this company. 👍

Fantastic service by the team of lads that came to remove my old insulation. They also removed old wood that was there at a very reasonable price and made sure there was no mess. Turned up when they said they would, very polite and professional. Would definitely recommend.
