    Signs Of Rodents In The Attic

    Attics are great spots for pests and birds. You may think that birds wouldn’t want to make a home in your attic, but Attic Projects professionals have seen it all! Birds can get in through holes, gaps, and windows that are not sealed. Birds like attic spaces because they are a safe, secure area away from predators. Signs that you have birds in your attic include:

    • Chirping, singing and fluttering noises
    • Scratching noises
    •  Insects
    •  Evidence of bird droppings
    •  Foul odors
    •  Birds near your eaves

    The Damage Birds Cause

    Destroyed Insulation

    Birds can make a mess of your attic. They will find anything nearby to use for building nests. In fact, your insulation is great material for a bird’s nest! When birds rip up insulation, it leaves gaps and holes, making it inefficient. You might even see your utility bills go up. 

    Health Concerns

    Birds also carry mites and ticks which can live in your insulation. Infested insulation is not safe for humans. Just like rodents, bird droppings carry disease and attract other pests that like to feed on the droppings. You don’t want to inhale these airborne pathogens, nor do you want the parasites these droppings attract in your home.

    Professional Bird Proofing & Your Home

    If you believe you have a bird infestation in your attic, contact an attic professional immediately. Here are the general steps we take to make sure there is a thorough cleaning and bird proofing: 

    • Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your home and attic. If birds are present, they will be humanely moved, along with any eggs or nests. Once birds are eradicated, a technician will seal off any entryways to prevent birds and other pests from entering your attic again.
    • After sealing entry points, a technician will either sanitize or clean your attic. During the attic cleaning, a technician will remove any debris brought in from the birds and clean up the birds’ waste as well. This should only be completed by a professional who has access to the proper equipment and high-grade cleaning products. 
    • Once the attic has been cleaned, it may be required to sanitize and decontaminate the space to ensure there are no longer mites, pests, and bacteria. This can be done through fogging. Again, only a licensed attic professional should complete this task.
    • Depending on the damage, it may be necessary to remove any ruined attic insulation and install new insulation. Our attic professionals can determine whether your insulation is salvageable or not. Many times after a bird infestation, it is best to remove the insulation and replace it with clean insulation.

    Testimonials

    We live in an older home near a large park area. Since buying our home, we’ve had to deal with the occasional rat. These guys came out and sealed my entire attic space – vs setting a few traps. Then vacuumed out the entire space that had nearly 100 years of debris – including from our new roof and insulated the entire house. Love the 5 year warranty against the rats and we already notice how much warmer the house is. The did a great job keeping area clean and protecting floors, walls while working. Highly recommend.

    It’s a stressful situation when you find black mold in your home. The guys at Attic Projects were professional, polite and respectfully clean. They finished the job in a timely manner and went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied with their work. Once the job was completed we instantly noticed a difference in our home’s humidity- going from 70% to the optimal 50%. I’d highly recommend these guys. Jordan, your customer service was top notch, thank you for making this a stress free experience.

    Attic Projects was so incredibly thorough and detailed with their description of how and why they were going to do each step, I knew I could trust them. These guys get it!! Total professionals, hard workers and they invited me to poke my head up in the attic during and after the job was complete. My in-laws received before and after pics and received a 5-year warranty on rodent proofing This was a big job and these guys absolutely killed it. I’d recommend them to anyone with similar issues. Thanks Attic Projects!!

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    How do birds get in my attic?

    Birds and other small rodents can get into your attic through tiny cracks and holes in your attic or crawl space. Attics and crawl spaces are perfect for nesting for birds as they are usually warm and give them a place to hide.

    Can birds nesting in my attic be dangerous to my health?

    Yes. Birds can not only expose you to diseases, but they can also bring in insects and use your attic as a nesting spot, resulting in droppings in your attic or crawl space. If you suspect there are birds in your attic, or a way for birds to enter your attic home, call Attic Projects today for a free inspection.

    Birds have destroyed my insulation from nesting in it, is this normal?

    Unfortunately, yes. Birds love to nest inside of insulation due to its warmth and comfort for them. If there have been birds in your insulation, you may need to have it removed and replaced. Call Attic Projects today for a free professional inspection.

    Do I need professional cleaning after a bird/rodent infestation?

    Absolutely. Birds and rodents can carry unwanted diseases along with needing to clean their droppings. These services should only be done by a professional so that you are not exposing yourself or your family to the health risks and to ensure that it is cleaned properly.
