How to Identify Rodent Droppings
Rodent droppings will vary in size depending on if you have a mouse or rat infestation. Mice droppings are typically small, smooth, and black with pointed ends. Their droppings are comparable to the size of grains of rice. Rat droppings are often larger, ½ to ¾ inches, brownish-black, and blunt at the ends. They may even resemble the size and shape of jellybeans.
Can You Get Sick from Rodent Feces and Urine?
Rat and mouse droppings can be dangerous to your health, as they carry diseases and viruses that are transferrable to humans. Sweeping or vacuuming rodent droppings, liquid or solid, may cause exposure to the Hantavirus along with other transmissible viruses or diseases.
Hantavirus is transmittable by breathing in the virus or by touching the feces or urine, making it highly dangerous to the unprotected. What starts as flu-like symptoms can quickly turn into life-threatening conditions.
How to Stay Safe While Cleaning Up Rodent Droppings
The risk of exposure to health threats makes it crucial to have a professional cleaning of rodent urine and feces. Professional clean-up involves proper ventilation, deep cleaning, and ventilation.
It is important to eliminate the active movement of rodents before starting a cleaning process. Once the rodents are no longer actively moving about your home, the viruses carried in their urine or feces may no longer be contagious.
Proper ventilation is also critical in safely removing rodent droppings, so introducing fresh air into the affected spaces and cross-ventilation are needed. Our team reduces the risks of infection from rodent droppings by utilizing proper protective gear and cleaning solutions that will destroy the infectious properties in droppings.
