Pests can infect and damage your home
Our Montreal exterminators have been specially trained to clean up the mess left behind by a wide range of unwelcome animals and insects. Urine and feces pose a potential health risk to humans and can also ruin parts of your home.
Insects can pose a threat to the health of the occupants of a house or building. Your comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities. That’s why our decontamination service guarantees lasting results, so you can finally say goodbye to invasive insects.

Our 6-step decontamination process
When implementing a decontamination plan, we follow a process to first exterminate the pests and then completely disinfect the premises.
1. Expert inspection
The first step in the decontamination process involves a thorough inspection of the building, both inside and out. We look for openings that could provide entry points for mice, rats and other pests. We then estimate the work and cost required to eradicate the infestation, seal the holes and clean up the mess left by these unwanted visitors. At this point, we determine the extent of the damage and the type of disinfection required, whether partial or total.
2. Preparing for decontamination
Following the inspection and before proceeding with the decontamination, our pest control experts spray a detergent on the infected surfaces to limit the spread of pathogens. We have extensive experience choosing the best products for the situation, while respecting the environment and everyone’s safety.
3. Pest extermination
After the inspection, our expert technician will provide the extermination service. Depending on the type of pests in your home, complete removal will take place immediately or over a period of a few days. For rats, mice or birds, we place traps or nets to catch and remove them. For raccoons, we use mechanical traps to catch the wild animals.
4. Collection of contaminated materials
As part of the decontamination service, our technicians collect dead animals and insects as well as any contaminated materials such as insulation. The droppings and contaminated materials are then sealed in bags for disposal.
5. Caulking and prevention
It is essential to seal all holes and cracks since pests may re-enter the house. Rats and mice produce a substance called a pheromone that is released in their urine when they enter buildings. This scent is used to mark their path, attracting other rodents looking for access to your home. This makes it necessary to hire a caulking service, like our team at Elite Pest Control, to stop or prevent intrusions.
6. Decontamination to permanently eliminate odors and mold
Pest decontamination can be a lengthy process depending on the degree of infestation and the damage to your attic. Animal droppings are a health hazard and can be unintentionally transported via dust particles and infect the air. We use HEPA filtered vacuums and all of our technicians wear masks and protective clothing appropriate for hazardous organic waste.
Disinfection is a key step in real estate sales in Quebec
Are you thinking of selling your home? You should know that the presence of mold, asbestos or vermiculite can greatly reduce its value or even prevent it from being sold. Having your home inspected and disinfected is essential for several reasons.
Contamination and mold reduce the value of your home
Mold grows quickly in damp areas and is dangerous for people suffering from respiratory diseases, in addition to giving off unpleasant odors. As a result, mold can greatly diminish the attractiveness of your home to potential buyers.
The presence of mold can result in tens of thousands of dollars lost on the sale. Professional decontamination of your home is therefore a particularly worthwhile investment if you are preparing to sell your property.
Asbestos, vermiculite and radon, other obstacles to real estate sales
In addition to mold, other problems can severely hinder a property sale:
- Asbestos and vermiculite: inhaling asbestos causes many health problems. Quebecers are often unaware that it is commonly found in cement, plaster or ceilings.
- Radon: a radioactive gas coming from uranium, radon is the direct cause of 3,000 cases of lung cancer each year. It proliferates when there are cracks in the foundation or when there is mold.
Besides the health concerns, these dangerous elements can lead to legal action: former owners are accused of hidden defects every year in Quebec. These problems could easily have been avoided by contacting a decontamination team.
With meticulous inspection and the use of effective, environmentally friendly methods, Elite Pest Control is the company of choice throughout Quebec.
