Attics are a common place for wildlife to make a home, especially if an attic isn’t commonly entered or used. Though the animals, themselves, may be harmless, they can cause a great deal of damage that affects the health of your home as well as the people in your home. Due to this, it is important to solve the problem before it has the opportunity to escalate.
What is an Attic Cleanout?
An attic cleanout is when wildlife control technicians enter an attic currently inhabited or previously inhabited by wildlife and cleans it, restoring it to its original, clean condition. When animals inhabit your attic, there are a number of damages that they can create such as:
- Leaving behind poop or urine in the insulation
- Leaving behind parasites, roundworms, and other pathogens
- Promoting the growth of mold in your attic
- Creating odor problems in your home
- Leaving nesting materials and other debris all over your attic
- Leaving behind strong pheromones that can attract more wildlife
Here at Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we deal with many cases dealing with bats and raccoons in our client’s attics. The waste created by these animals can cause internal damages to the home such as water damage-looking stains on the ceiling and urine saturated insulation. Bat urine, in particular, contains a strong ammonia odor that is a major health hazard to the occupants of the home. Additionally, raccoons carry roundworms which are extremely contagious to both humans and pets.
Our technicians will work tirelessly to clean the mess caused by these animals so that your home can return to its happy and healthy state.
Here at Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we want to make sure that your home is safe and well-protected against wildlife that would otherwise cause damage. When our technician first arrives, they will look at the damaged area or areas and do a full inspection to identify the cause. Once the cause has been identified, if an animal needs to be removed, they will do so. The damages left behind will then be treated. Our technicians are trained to repair the following:
- Drip edges (repair and install)
- Fascia board
- Siding (wood and vinyl)
- And much more
Apart from our repair work, we also offer a number of other services for whatever wildlife situation you are dealing with. If needed, we can also provide the following upon request:
Installation of a chimney cap to prevent squirrels, birds, and other wildlife from entering the chimney.
A complete dryer, bathroom, and kitchen exhaust vent cleanout for birds and bird nests.
Installation of a dryer, bathroom, and kitchen exhaust vent cover to prevent birds from re-entering the vent and creating nests.
We are here to help you with whatever services you need to be done. Based on the condition of your home’s damaged area, our technicians may offer additional services to keep your home as protected as possible.
All of our technicians have the proper training and equipment to make sure that the entire mess is cleaned and nothing harmful or unwanted is left behind. When our technicians first set foot into the attic, they will remove any large animal droppings that they find. From there, they will vacuum any smaller droppings, leaving nothing left behind. From there, the attic will be fogged with a cleaning solution to remove any dangerous odors so that you and your family can breathe safely.
We also offer a full insulation removal and reinstallation of your attic so that you won’t have to worry about any damages that may have occurred to that area of your home.
