Removal of contaminated waste from a loft space can be extremely dangerous due to the pathogens contained within rodent or bird droppings. At Rapid Environmental Services, we are used to dealing with loft clearances with this type of problem, taking the utmost care and all necessary precautions to ensure the problem is solved without spreading the contamination throughout the building.
As you can imagine, this is not a pleasant or comfortable job and is often performed in extremely cramped and hot conditions – exactly what rats and birds like when they are looking for a place to breed.
Where there has been a rat or bird infestation in a loft space, it is essential that all loft insulation materials are removed, the area is disinfected and cleaned, with all faeces and nesting materials removed (and quite often carcasses). This is particularly important where other trades are coming into this environment to work – for example electricians or plumbers. Seeing rat or bird faeces could mean delaying jobs or risking the health of those trades.
Once the loft or void is clear from debris, hoovered to remove all traces of contamination and sprayed for bird mites, fleas and other pests, as well as disinfected to remove all traces of pathogens, we are happy to either hand it over to the client, or can re-insulate to the latest government guidelines.
All staff are fully trained and aware of the hazards in working in confined spaces and on fragile surfaces, so you can be sure that the safety of our staff, you and your property are our number one priority. We will remove and dispose of all waste products produced correctly and in line with our waste management policies to ensure all biohazardous waste is treated with extreme care and in the correct manner.
So if you have a loft which is contaminated with rat or bird droppings and need the problem solved quickly and efficiently, Rapid Environmental Services are the people to call. With many years of dealing with private companies, building contractors, house owners, local authorities, housing associations and councils we are the right people for your job.
