If you have rodents in your loft, getting rid of them is vital – as is finding the entry point and properly securing it. Our trained technicians are used to dealing with all kinds of pests, including rats, and are experts in locating and eliminating the cause, cleaning and contaminating the space and re-insulating it.

Rats in particular leave behind faeces and urine that contain harmful pathogens and diseases which will stay in your loft and insulation forever. Most tradesmen will not go in the loft if such pathogens exist, so this problem should be addressed sooner rather than later.

Many of the lofts we visit have poor insulation and most are not worth trying to save, so we believe that taking everything out, cleaning up the mess, spraying to remove dangerous germs and diseases and then re-insulating to government recommendations is the best policy. Whether the rodents have been controlled by us or not, we are happy to follow on after the problem is solved and deal with the loft clearance and decontamination.

The Bowman Services team also have expertise in pigeon guano (droppings) removal from loft spaces, pathways and disused buildings. Once pigeons gain access to roof spaces through damaged or moved roof tiles, they quickly coat the roof space in guano and it can get littered with dead birds and unhatched eggs. This then becomes a breeding ground for a host of insects and can cause diseases such as Salmonella and Ornithosis. Our professional technicians can efficiently remove the guano and proof any holes to prevent the birds from getting back in.
