Art Plumbing, AC and Electric can help! South Florida attic rats are very dangerous. They must be removed as soon as you realize there is an infestation. Pests like rats and squirrels can be found in a number of different places within a home, including the attic and the crawl space. One of the best methods for dealing with the problems caused by these rat infestations include attic cleaning and crawl space cleaning.
There are occasions when our experts must remove squirrels or rats from attics and the damage is so severe that attic decontamination is required. Rodent cleanup frequently calls for the need to remove the insulation first to find some of the rodents’ hiding places. Attic insulation removal performed by our experts can reveal the nests where the rats or squirrels are hiding. We then decontaminate the area where the rats and squirrels live.
If you smell rat feces when you are walking through out your house you have a rat problem. Rat feces and urine cause damage to exposed areas. More importantly, rodent urine crystalizes and becomes airborne, potentially exposing humans to hantaviruses. The disease spreads by breathing in dust that is contaminated with rodent urine or droppings, or coming in direct contact with rodents or their urine and droppings.
In many cases rats make a nest in the attic where it is nice and warm. In some situations the ducts are damaged or breached, and rat related diseases are pumped throughout the ventilation system. We can restore your attic to a healthy level and eliminate the smell of rats in your home.
Rat proofing can sometimes require several different strategies. Our rat control professionals first ensure the area is properly sanitized, and that nothing in the affected area is attracting the pests or causing health issues. Once the area is properly sanitized, there are several options for controlling the rats and pests.

Our professionals know that rats and pests can get into crawl spaces as well, because they are attracted to the warmth and moisture of these places in the home.
