The health risks associated with rodents
Many customers are unaware of the harmful health effects a contaminated attic or crawlspace can cause to their family’s respiratory and immune systems. According to the center for diseases control and prevention Rodents can transmit directly & indirectly deadly germs in their urine and feces and spread diseases like Lyme Disease, Salmonella, Hantavirus, Histoplasmosis.
Inhaling rodent feces or urine can be toxic and increase the risk for Allergies, Asthma & Cardiovascular diseases
By cleaning out rodent waste, dust, debris, and old insulation we improve the air quality inside the house so you can protect your family’s health while maintaining clean, safe and energy efficient home.
Noises above your head aren’t the only issue you will have with rodents. Rodents can cause major damage to your air ducts, affecting the air quality inside your home.
The effectiveness of insulation is measured by it’s R value which, if damaged, will lead to higher energy bills. Rodents also tend to chew electrical wires which raise the risk of fire to your home, fixing these types of unique rodent damages are always costly.
Rats, mice, raccoons, and possums are issues you do not want to ignore. Over time, the damage to your home becomes greater and the likelihood of getting a disease increases substantially. AttiCare has over a decade of experience with rodent proofing and will assure your home is not only rodent free but a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
How Rodents Get In
Smaller rodents can make their way into your attic through holes less than one inch in diameter. Vents and chimney pipes are common spaces for rats and mice to get in while larger animals may actually chew or claw through weak points along the exterior of your home. Identifying rodent entry points is the first step in eliminating these pests for good.
Why Rodents Get In
Rodents are naturally attracted to humid, dark spaces. The attic and crawlspace of your home are a welcoming space for unwanted critters seeking food and shelter from the cold.
Not only is it hard to remove these rodents from your home, but it’s even harder to keep them away since they leave behind a scent for other rodents to follow, marking your home as their territory with urine and feces. Within weeks you go from one or two unwanted guests to a serious infestation.
How to Identify and Manage a Rodent Infestation
There are a few signs to look out for when suspecting rodent activity in your home or business. Here’s a closer look at the top indicators of a rodent problem in your attic.
Even if you don’t see rodents wandering your hallways, you can see and even smell what rodents leave behind. Rodents have a very fast metabolism and will leave droppings every 2-3 minutes on average. Before cleaning and sanitizing the contaminated area, it is crucial to completely clear the infestation and seal off any entry points.
- Damaged structures and chewed wires Mice and rats tend to chew on insulation, electrical wires, and wood. You might also see damages to the home’s exterior where larger rodents like raccoons may have chewed their way in.
- Strange noises If you don’t go up into your attic, you may be able to identify rodents by the noise they make. Scratching, scraping, and thumping noises in the attic are likely sounds of a rodent infestation.
Our vaccums run directly from the attic to an outdoor trailer or removal bag. This ensures your home does not get dirtied.

We Have a 5 Star Rating Across the Board
We are getting ready to remodel and know our attic is a mess from a rat infestation and a leaky roof. We wanted to get it cleaned out before we started crawling around in that mess. Francisco got out quickly for an estimate, did a good job of explaining what they would do, were able to schedule us quickly for the work and the price was very fair. Danis and crew showed up right on schedule to do the work, did a good job of preparing for the job, got it done efficiently, and cleaned up after themselves.
Couldn’t ask for any better performance or price. Thank you Attic Care!
Attic care is a great company to work with! Before I started the project with them, I had a terrible experience with another company that were doing rodent proofing. I contacted Attic Care and they came in the next day for an estimate. Milo gave me a fair estimate on the attic cleaning, proofing and new insulation. I needed it done fast because I had an electrician coming over to work in the attic and Milo work within my schedule. On the weekend I decided to text Milo to ask if they could add vapor barrier to the crawl space and he was able to add it to be done on the same day as the attic clean up.
The day of the clean up, Elmer and crew were very punctual. They did a fantastic job! Elmer even found the entry points for the rodents to the crawl space that the previous company said that they had fixed. I would definitely recommend them.
Working with AttiCare was a breeze from the first consultation through the work and into the follow up phase. We had a extensive rat issues in our attic when we bought our home. Disgusting. We’re very comfortable now as if the problem never existed.
I would give Atticare 6 stars if I could. I have an old 1920s house and it had zero insulation (freezing) and lots of entry points for rats that I wanted to live in total denial of — gross! Atticare was so professional and thorough. They came out and did all of the cleaning, sanitizing and installation in one day, showed me a lot of before and after pictures and rodent proofed even the tiniest openings. Then after they were done, I heard a rat scratching and chewing. They came right back out and found a hard to see hole underneath the gutter in this decorative fascia (not an access point to the attic) and sealed it off for me. Jay came out to give me the quote and help with the second visit — he’s so awesome, explains everything and obsessively detailed. All of the crew are so nice and equally obsessed with high quality work. I wish all companies could be like Atticare. I’m a huge fan and give them the highest recommendation. If you care about a high quality, great customer service experience for your insulation and rodent proofing go with Atticare!
