Attic & Crawl Space Rodent Cleanup in Greater Pittsburgh
Rid your home of unhealthy, nasty rodent droppings & debris
When it gets cold, rodents and other pests move into attics and crawl spaces to keep warm. This means they will leave behind droppings, debris, and other biohazards that can harm you or your family.
Over 21 million homeowners take in unwanted guests during the colder months. Some believe that rodent infestations just include mice or rats. However, snakes, raccoons, squirrels, possums, birds, and bats can make your attic or crawl space their new home.
Home Environment Solutions is the only local Biohazard Certified Business that removes, sanitizes, and deodorizes rodent droppings and debris. We are also a professionally trained home energy company, so after we remove those nasty droppings and debris, we can reinsulate the home and prevent future pest problems.

Frequently asked questions about our rodent cleanup services
- How do I know if I have a rodent problem?
The most common indication of a rodent infestation is if you have foul smells throughout the home or if you hear scratching and scurrying across the ceiling. Other signs may include visible rodent tunnels or disturbed areas in insulation. Sometimes you can also see the droppings and urine inside the house.
If you have any of these issues, you are very likely to have a rodent infestation. Home Environment Solutions is the only local Biohazard Certified Business that removes, sanitizes, deodorizes, and reinsulates in the Pittsburgh region.
- What are the dangers of a rodent infestation?
Did you know that rodents carry over 200 pathogens or organisms just from their droppings and dried urine? Hantavirus is a deadly disease that is actually airborne after rodent urine dries – and if you were to come in contact with a dead rodent you could get Salmonellosis.
If your home isn't air-insulated correctly you could also be breathing in rat biohazard and tons of dust. Mold will also start growing from droppings or urine. This can all wreak havoc on your health and your attic.
- How do we remove rodent waste safely?
Our certified crew at Home Environment Solutions take appropriate precautions while removing biohazards from your attic and crawl space, not only our health but yours as well. This includes wearing the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which includes:
- HEPA Respirator
- Tyvek Suit
- Protective Eyewear
We use HEPA air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums. These allow us to remove 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. We also have a 23 horsepower Vacuum truck that sucks everything, including dead cadavers, nests, dried urine, droppings, bugs, or even old blown-in insulation, straight into the truck so there is no way of cross-contamination.
If you have the Fiberglass Bat insulation or large nesting materials, we bag it up and dispose of it while using containment and HEPA air scrubbers to prevent cross-contamination into your living space.
After we remove all of the contaminated materials, we sanitize to kill any other dangerous pathogens remaining. No doubt after having unwanted rodents in your attic there is a foul smell so we then deodorize the area so the smell no longer lingers in the area.
Finally, when all of the contaminated materials are removed from your attic or crawl space we will reinsulate the area to Dr. Energy Saver standards.
