Yes, LA, you do need decontamination services as well as rodent control, and here’s why

There’s no doubt about it; if you have rodent problems, you will also have damage control problems. Rats and mice can completely trash even a wonderful modern home or brand-new commercial premises. They can damage wiring, plumbing, insulation, furniture, and make some areas uninhabitable almost overnight.

A rodent infestation is a hygienic disaster. Even when you get rid of the rats and mice, they leave a few “donations” in the form of truly toxic, persistent biological agents like viruses, bacteria, and fungi. These biological agents can persist for quite literally years, causing allergic reactions and in some cases very nasty diseases.

That’s where we come into the equation. We’re Rodents Stop, a full service rodent control company servicing the Los Angeles Metro area. We provide a full spread of rodent control services including rodent prevention systems and our state-of-the-art home decontamination service. If you need rat control in Beverly Hills, rodent control in Glendale, or anywhere in the city, just call us.

Our range of rodent control services are based on a holistic, systematic approach to the problems caused by rodent infestations:

  1. Quantify the problem.
  2. Carry out rodent extermination programs according to the needs of the specific premises.
  3. Carry out thorough decontamination of affected areas.
  4. Put in place a thorough, effective rodent prevention system.

The decontamination part of the process is critical. Simply exterminating rodents isn’t enough. The hygiene problems can persist and spread. It’s not at all uncommon for people to experience allergy problems or a range of sometimes minor, sometimes not so minor, medical issues after a rodent infestation has been eliminated.

The problem is that these pathogens can spread throughout the premises through air conditioning, and the natural movement of air. Unless properly cleaned, contaminated areas are a potentially serious problem waiting to happen. Respiratory ailments, in particular can be serious health hazard to the elderly and the very young. Some infections may affect pets. Best practice is to ensure that your premises are thoroughly cleaned and fully decontaminated.
