Pet Urine / Feces
Exposure to animal urine and feces can pose serious health risks to you and your family. Animal urine and feces can carry or attract bacteria, viruses, insects, rodents and disease. Accidental ingestion can result in vomiting, diarrhea and a host of other health problems. Hoarding and gross filth properties where pets have lived typically have animal feces and urine throughout the home. As you can imagine, cleaning up after pets is rarely a priority for a hoarder due to the lack of access when personal items and trash cover the home. Hoarders simply can’t get to all the places their pets can. And it doesn’t smell very nice either! ECS is more than just a crime scene cleaning company.

Dog Feces can carry the following bacteria and viruses: tapeworms, ringworm, hookworm, giardiasis, salmonellosis, campylobacteriosis, and parvo and others. One gram of dog feces contains approximately 23 million fecal coliform bacteria which can lead to serious kidney disorders, stomach cramps, diarrhea and intestinal illnesses.
Cat feces increases the risk of contracting toxoplasmosis, the effects of which are flu-like for an average person but may cause miscarriage, congenital defects, damage to the eyes, brain, or other problems for expecting mothers. Toxoplasmosis is caused by a parasite that lives in a cat’s intestine, and passes on to its feces. While the parasite is more common with outdoor cats, toxoplasmosis is a risk that pet owners and expecting mothers should be aware of as it can be passed from mother to baby.
