Have you ever thought of cleaning or protecting the ceiling area of your property? Probably not. Here’s why it may be necessary:

Termite infestations

Termites have an insatiable appetite for cellulose found in wood - eating 24-hours a day, seven days a week. They cause serious and costly damage and compromise the structural stability of a home

Woodborer or beetle infestations

Eggs are laid in cracks of wood and the larvae tunnel into the wood, filling the surface with a very fine powder-like dust.

Bird infestations

Birds such as pigeons roost in areas above ground and will readily nest in steeples, as well as in voids or inside buildings and other protected areas.

Rodent infestations

Roof rats get their name from their tendency to be found in the upper parts of buildings. Roof rats are known for the damage they cause by chewing on materials.

Your health

The fact remains – rodents and all pests, can have harmful effects upon your family's health and your own. Rodent droppings most often cause allergic reactions in human beings but can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly hantavirus.

Bat infestations

Bat guano can build up in attics and eaves that have been used by bats, and even if the human occupants of the building are not aware of the dung, they can be harmed by it. After guano has lain around for a couple of years, a fungus can grow in it, releasing spores into the air that cause histoplasmosis in humans.

Insect infestations such as cockroaches, ants etc.

German cockroaches can be found throughout structures but show a preference for warm and humid places.


Medical studies have shown that cockroach allergens cause many allergic reactions, especially in children. They cause asthma in children. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of cockroaches.
