Rodent Droppings: Why do you Need a Professional to Clean it up

How Common and Dangerous are Rodent Droppings in Homes?


A typical mouse can leave 70 to 150 dropping in a single day. Rats leave 35 to 50. But, whether you have 35 or you have 150, a significant number of pellet-like feces are a clear indication that you have rodents inside your home or business. The accumulation of feces from mice and rats can spread bacteria, contaminate food sources and trigger allergic reactions in humans. Once the fecal matter becomes dry, it can be hazardous to those who breathe it in. 



The Importance of Cleaning it up


The most important reason to clean up rodent droppings comes from the health hazards that will be exposed in your home. The most common diseases that rodent carry are:


  • Lyme Disease
  • Salmonella
  • Hantavirus
  • Typhus  


Rodent-spawned diseases are responsible for over ten million deaths in the last hundred years. In fact, these infections were a threat to all of humanity back in the late Middle Ages, causing over two hundred million deaths in Europe alone!

Signs of Rodents in your Home


Here are some of the most common telltale signs that point to a mouse infestation:

  • Rodent droppings
  • Scratch marks on furniture
  • Squeaking and scratching sounds
  • Gaps or holes in walls and furniture
  • Scattered nesting materials such as paper, cardboard, cotton, cloth, etc.

If you happen to notice any of these signs, please address them immediately, before the situation escalates into a full-blown infestation.
