Detecting mice in your home
Mice can cause significant damage when colonizing a living space, as much to humans as physical materials. In order to limit the damage that can be caused, it is essential to quickly identify the invasion to exterminate the mice and decontaminate the rooms.
Here are some signs that you might be a victim of a mouse invasion.
Spotting mouse excrement around your house.
You may hear scratching noises in the walls at sunrise and sunset.
If you smell distinct odours, especially in confined spaces.
Signs of nibbling
You may notice nibbling marks in paper or electrical wires.
Effective mouse extermination and safe decontamination
A mouse extermination is invaluable when it comes to an invasion. It enables you to control the situation and stop the rodents from reproducing. However, an extermination alone does not guarantee the health of the inhabitants. In fact, the invaded spaces have been soiled and contaminated. In order to avoid any health complications for the occupants and guarantee them a clean interior, our team of professionals will decontaminate the spaces.
A comprehensive procedure to eliminate rodents and bacteria
At Elite Decontamination, we have developed a comprehensive procedure to guarantee the complete extermination and decontamination of your home. Certified by the Quebec Ministry of the Environment, this procedure is broken down into 4 stages:
- Inspection to identify infested spaces and the degree of infestation. We also identify all entry points that can be used by rodents.
- The extermination of all rodents using effective techniques such as traps and poison.
- Caulking of potential entrances and sealing of holes to prevent further infestation.
- Microbial decontamination with Health Canada-approved repellents to sterilize your living space and eliminate any infectious bacteria or viruses that can spread through the air.
Some diseases that mice can transmit
A mouse, like a rat, is a rodent that carries many diseases that can be transmitted to humans. If you do not quickly exterminate mice in your living space, you will be exposed to serious diseases.
Hantavirus is a virus found in the urine, saliva and feces of mice. This can lead to significant health complications in humans. This zoonotic virus causes haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. The most common aftereffect is pituitary or thyroid hormone deficiency. Symptoms are similar to a flu with vomiting and breathing difficulties that can be fatal.
Human-to-human transmission is rare and there is no effective vaccine or treatment for hantavirus infection to date.
Leptospirosis is an infectious disease caused by the development of a bacteria of the genus Leptospira. It is transmitted to humans via contact with water, soil or food that has been contaminated by a disease-carrying rodent.
Symptoms usually include fever, muscle aches, headache, gastrointestinal bleeding and possible kidney infection. Depending on the extent of the disease, treatment can range from simple antibiotics to hospitalization.
