Filthy and Rat Infested Premises
Rat and mice infestations will cause contamination within a property.
Heavy and prolonged infestations may need specialist decontamination, including
for example removal of insulation material from roof spaces.
Neglected premises that are poorly maintained, with possessions being allowed
to accumulate and cleaning being abandoned can quickly fall into the ‘filthy
and verminous’ classification and be subject to Public Health legislation.
Sharps and bodily fluids can also be present in these properties, requiring
further specialist procedures such as searching for hypodermics, containment
and collection of bodily fluids, and disposal of hazardous waste.
