Rodents carry diseases and they leave filth that can create a biohazard. As part of either attic or substructure crawlspace cleanup, Cascade Pest Control applies a disinfectant to surfaces. This disinfectant can't be removed, and greatly aids in the decontamination process. It is applied as a fog that drifts into hard-to-reach areas or, when needed, as a heavier spray that penetrates deeper into the surface build-up.

The odor from rat or mouse urine, feces, and dead rodent carcasses is horrendous. The stench is always found where they've lived and sometimes it reaches into the living space of your home.
Another related problem is the pheromones. These are scents that attract other rats or mice. These organic chemicals communicate to other rodents in your neighborhood what a suitable place your home is for them. As a consequence, many current rodent problems are solved only to find that later (perhaps months or years later) other rodents are so strongly compelled by these pheromones that they gnaw their way in and set up a new infestation.
First, any contaminants and dead animals have to be removed - and finding dead rodents is at times difficult. Then we apply a proven deodorizer to help bring your home back to the comfortable and pleasant place it should be.
