We were brought to this job by an auto body shop in the Spectrum area of Irvine and that was a good thing because the infiltration of the rat required that the console be disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. We figured this out when we found a fur strip on each side of the console frame and pointed it out to their technicians.
In a situation like this we remind the client that we can clean the “air only”. That means that the source of the odor must be removed in order for us to treat the smell. We came back two days later and they had removed the fur. We set up our machines, cleaned the air, everyone was happy.
You would be surprised how big of a problem this is. Apparently some of the wiring in cars is now made from a soy-based covering instead of the traditional petroleum-based wiring and it is even more attractive to rats who also need to chew constantly just to keep their teeth worn down.
We make a great partner for auto repair, collision centers/auto body shops because of our specialized equipment and extensive experience in removing animal odors, including rat smells, from cars and trucks.
If you have rat or other animal smelling odors in your car, truck, van or boat give us a call, we’d be happy to help. Call us at (714) 605-8486 or use our handy contact form.
