Having animals in your attic isn’t just an annoyance, it poses risks to your family and your home. One of these risks comes from the droppings and urine left behind. When an animal finds its way into your attic, the first thing it will do is create a home for itself. Rodents will chew through wires, wood, and insulation to build their nests — but that’s only part of the problem.

Just like humans, animals need a bathroom. Unfortunately, they’re not quite as picky about where they go. Animals in your attic will leave droppings and urine, eventually ruining your insulation. Feces in your insulation causes spotting, stains, and degradation, eventually requiring a replacement if you want the insulation to remain effective.

Avoid Potentially Deadly Diseases

If you’re considering removing your animal poop-infested insulation and replacing it yourself, we encourage you to consider other options. Animal droppings are likely to carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans through touch or microorganisms in the air.

One of the most common diseases spread by animal feces is Leptospira, also known as Weil’s disease. It spreads through bacteria in the urine of infected animals. Although it can be treated with antibiotics, if left untreated, it can eventually lead to severe kidney and liver problems, even resulting in death.
