Have you ever thought of cleaning or protecting the ceiling area of your property? Probably not. Here’s why ceiling treatment and ceiling cleaning may be necessary.
7 Reasons to Get Ceiling Cleaning or Ceiling Treatment Done Today
1. Termite infestations
Termites have an insatiable appetite for cellulose found in wood. They eat 24-hours a day, seven days a week and can cause serious, costly damage and compromise the structural stability of a home.
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. They can damage your ceilings or soil them with debris and bird poop.
3. Your health
The fact remains that rodents and all pests can have harmful effects on your and your family’s home. Rodent droppings most often cause allergic reactions in humans, but can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly hantavirus.
4. Insect infestations such as cockroaches, ants etc.
German cockroaches live 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. These allergens build up in deposits of droppings, secretions, cast skins, and dead bodies of cockroaches.
5. Woodborer or beetle infestations
Woodborers lay eggs in cracks of wood. The larvae tunnel into the wood, filling the surface with a very fine powder-like dust. Ceiling treatment is an important way to stop them.
6. Rodent infestations
Roof rats get their name from their tendency to be found in the upper parts of buildings. Roof rats cause damage by chewing on materials.
7. Bat infestations
Rodent droppings and bat guano can build up in attics and eaves where these creatures live. Even if the human occupants of the building are not aware of the dung, it can harm them. 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.
