While humans congregate in kitchens and dining rooms, rodents prefer a house's less populated areas, such as attics and crawlspaces. That's where Attic Star's cleaning crew heads to assess the damage left behind by unwelcome critters. The crew will remove any contamination, and disinfect surfaces to rid attics of bacteria and unpleasant odors. If rodents have sullied insulation or air vents, Attic Star's personnel will carefully remove the tainted pieces before replacing and rodent-proofing each part. In fact, Attic Star offers rodent-proofing for entire houses, which saves homeowners the hassle of moving into a giant mousetrap.
